This rooibos is so basic and plain that I’ve came to the conclusion that its best to experiment. I got this gift set lately – like a tea set for kids – strawberry themed. In it it has a small tin of strawberry, apple and other stuff. Probably some vanilla. So im trying to mix it now. One teaspoon of plain rooibos and one teaspoon of the fruity thing.

It’s not bad, there must be some lemon in it cause its a bit acid. Ill try some honey with it.

OK i got a quite decent fruit blend. Just as good as the fruit teas that are most popular in my country. Reminds me of them bit too much even. I kinda got used on having some actual tea in my teas.

All together blend is better than just plain rooibos.

I really like pic #3. If I tried to do a cool shot like that, then I’d probably end up spilling the tea all over my keyboard and killing my laptop. ;)

Bio

born with a bit of a restless, curious and exploring spirit ;) love to travel and i do it a lot lately. enjoy good food and drinks. love trying out new stuff. just about to start exploring the world of teas and i’m really enthusiastic about it ;)

EDIT 4 months later:
still a n00b here but starting to get it ;) i try to buy loose tea but i got a lot of teabags too cuz it’s easier to find here. from not liking black tea ended up love it. green can be quite good too but waiting for more real ones to try. whites are sometimes awesome, sometimes not, rooibos and fruity blends are a good replacement for juices… and so on… still excited about every new tea… loving it more every day :D

since my favorite hobby is photography i take photos whenever something is interesting. including my tea making process…
