First before I forget – who was looking for Sleepytime Vanilla overseas? I found a few boxes today.
After all the talk about Assam today, I thought it fitting that I drink one of their teas this evening as I start to wind down. Rooibos-based chai, and I can tell immediately it’s heavy on the pepper and cardamom. If you like that sort of thing, it’s delicious. I found it pretty dull tasting until I added some Truvia, and then it perked up with strong licorice accents and again, cardamom and pepper. There’s some ginger I think floating around too, and orange comes in very, very faintly. I wish there was more orange. Odd steep time listed on this bag (3 minutes for a rooibos?) however I followed it.
A decent chai, and probably amazing if I added some coconut milk. Alas, I’m too lazy to go find some, as I sit, watch Bones, and get all of the nametags ready for the 20s-themed murder mystery on Tuesday.
