Senior year of high school, I worked at a craft store that had the best smelling wax melts ever. They were seasonal too, and the fall ones were always the best smells. This reminds me of one of them, though at this point I have no idea what it was. I’d say it also reminds me of those cinnamon broom things some people are crazy about, but if you’ve ever worked in a place suffocating you with them, then you try not to think of them.
While it’s pretty good without anything added, it definitely needs a bit of honey to get it really popping. Now, it definitely reminds me of a graham cracker crust, I am so going to have to try steeping this in some apple cider.
It’s not too heavy on the rooibos taste either with some honey. I added just about a teaspoon, worrying it might make it too sweet, but it’s really boosted the flavor. The aftertaste got pretty sweet, but nothing bad…tastes like the cinnamon flavor Teddy Grahams.
For the price, a mere $1.75 for an ounce, this is definitely worthy of a try if you’re looking for a good caffeine-free treat for autumn…which I think is finally going to make its way here next week after being obnoxiously hot today.
