another tea I’ve “unblended” — removed the chunks of melon and apple from my spoonful. Rinsed the leaves with the boiling water 10-15 seconds to try to remove pumpkin/cream flavoring, then steeped 10 min, no additives. Result: weak rooibos with a hint of cream. Exactly what was to be expected I suppose… it actually leaves a creamy aftertaste/smooth texture on the tongue, which is weird!

I can’t wait for my Stash Red Fusion (loose!) to get here. I bought some stopgap bagged rooibos at Harris Teeter, got home and looked it up and realized it was the Twinings that I’d disliked only days before. facepalm I should have either shelled out for the pretty good but expensive Numi, or settled for the placid but unobjectionable Celestial Seasonings Madagascar Vanilla rooibos. haven’t made it back to the store to exchange it yet, so here I am unblending my rooibos blends in a sad attempt to get plain ol’ red tea. :-(
