I have to be honest, I went in to the tasting of this tea with a bad attitude. I am not a big fan of RoT. Generally speaking, I find the bag size is too small and the price tag is too high. Also when I think strawberry and chocolate, I think Neapolitan ice cream. I really don’t care for Neapolitan ice cream. This tea doesn’t stand a chance.

Steeped for 5 minutes. First taste was ok but a bit bland. Added sweetener (which is my usual habit). Sipped again. I have to agree with Bonnie’s review – this isn’t bad. In fact I kind of like it. Read the label and noticed this is rooibos. I tried but I can’t taste rooibos in this at all. It is just a pleasant mix of strawberry and chocolate actually more cocoa, with a hint of vanilla. It tastes natural to me, not fake or candy. It is rich enough to enjoy, yet not overbearing in the cup. This is not something I would drink everyday but it is a pleasant caffeine free calorie free desert drink. Glad I tried it.

Things being as they are, I am now allergic to Rooibos so this goes to the grandsons. However, my daughter got me a tea timer that fits on the lid of their cans…wierd huh…but you don’t lose it that way! So I now have an empty can for it!

If any one asks… tell them its art.

Made a lovely cover for the tin with pretty scrapbook paper, or paint the outside, make a new label, then use it to store another tea!

I thought I could store my small tea spoons in it. Or my Pu-erh knife so my grandsons can’t find it (tempting to play with!).

Oo, great ideas!
