Blending these teas is genius! The MateVana is this wonderfully smooth chocolatey-nutty tea, and the Rooibos Chai has a nice cinnamon flavor that is not overpowering. Together, they make one heck of a tea during the winter. I like to fill my cast iron pot with it and drink it while studying for hours; the caffeine in the mate and the cinnamon kick really keeps me up and going. Even after the tea cools it is still great!

I like a light cinnamon surprise in the tea, so for 16oz I make 2tsp of MateVana with 1tsp Rooibos chai and 1tsp of rock sugar. Both of the teas are very reasonably priced as well. Magnifique!

I’ve been drinking loose leaf teas for about 4 years and really enjoy the sense of contentment it brings to my busy life. I suppose tea is an experience you inherently have to slow down and enjoy, as it quiets the mind and allows you to hear more readily. I am also interested in Buddhism, yoga, meditation, and psychotherapy.

Here are some of my favorite teas:

Organic Silver Needle White Tea (Teavivre)
Bailin Gongfu Black Tea (Teavivre)
Buttered Rum (DavidsTea)
Gyrokuro/Gyrokuro Genmaicha (Teavana)
Apple Green Tea (Indigo Tea Company)
Strawberry Festival (Indigo Tea Company)
Mom’s Apple Pie (David’s Tea)
Jasmine Dragon Phoenix Pearls/Rooibos Tropica Blend (Teavana)
