How are there no reviews for this one yet? Ida thought people would be jumping to try datey muffins. Anyway, I was. I actually think this manages to taste quite a bit like a muffin, which is to say if you think of the way the batter tastes, this is quite spot on. It has little nuts in the mix too, which is just cute. I missed my Rooibos while I was in Japan, the land of green tea over the summer, and it’s absolutely too cold in this library I’m writing from so tea is just what I need. I’m snuggling my travel mug like a heat blanket.

Anyway, this is actually a rather nice autumnal one. Sweet like dates, with that muffiny component. Not too nutty tasting, but decent nonetheless. I think this would combine really well with other teas too for a unique cocktailing experience. Something of the backdrop reminds me of my beloved cinnamon raisin toast tea, but without the smokey “burnt tea” note that the black tea adds to that one.
