To enjoy drinking this tea, attention to preparation is key. I recommend using a very fine mesh infuser or a good quality fill-your-own tea bag – the rooibos pieces are so tiny compared to your typical loose tea. That said, I prepare this by filling a mesh tea ball halfway, then pouring 180-degree water over the tea ball, no steeping.

This tea has a very nice spicy flavor, wonderfully smoothed by the vanilla. Prepared with no steeping as I do, the flavor is still very full, rich, and satisfying. Would go great with some vanilla ice-cream or light cookies. Heck, even something with a stronger flavor like ginger bread would work, but gingersnaps would totally outpower it. Must be time for some dessert.

That said, that it’s a great tea and I need a better infuser to prepare it properly, I do have a slight allergic reaction to it – my lower lip puffs up immediately after the first sip. Nothing to worry about, but something I’ll keep in mind if I have a presentation to give within an hour or so after drinking some of this.
