It’s a cup full of red-hots! I had a ridiculous headache when I brewed this cup, and no ibuprofen seemed to make a dent in it. I feel like drinking a cup of this on Valentines’ Day would make me smile, and get a bit nostalgic for classroom V-day parties from childhood. That said, (Kristin, brace yourself)- I’m not sure I like it. On one hand, it reminds me a bit of Teavana’s Ayurvedic chai. On the other hand, it lacks the tempering lemongrass notes. I think it may be a bit too sweet, really. I’m having it as a dessert tea with a chocolate cupcake and I’m still going ‘argh the sweetness’. Am going to keep trying this until I like it as much as Kristin does :)

(In other news, the husband and I are watching a Deep Sea nature film and Johnny Depp narrated it, and it’s pretty weird.)

I like sweet and normally sweeten my teas so that’s probably why I like it more than you. I don’t add almost any sweetener to this one. But seriously, what’s not to like about boiled red hots. :)

Mmmm Johnny Depp

I definitely like the red hot thing in some teas, but somehow this one is just toooo sweet for me. I am going to try it again of course :)
