I bought this tea as part of a special at the cranberry festival. There was a bit of a crowd, so I just grabbed three that sounded unique and I handed over the cash. I didn’t realize that this one was a rooibos until I got home. I’m not a huge rooibos fan, so I would have chosen something different had I known, but I am actually quite happy with this choice. I like the apple and pistachio tastes together and the “rooibosness” isn’t too overwhelming. It’s not something I’d repurchase because I prefer other types of tea, but it’s much better than I anticipated. Gotta love a little forced branching out gone right.
I’m drinking soothing teas today after yesterday’s fun Halloween with a friend; we took her kids out trick-or-treating, and indulged in a few too many treats. For my costume I decided not to do anything scary because her girls are quite young, so I did a butterfly-inspired look.

Although I’m not a lover as Rooibos teas as a whole, this tea is doing quite a decent job of changing my mind to think of them in a much more positive light. I don’t think I would go so far as to say that I’d repurchase this one, but I’m definitely going to be less hesitant to open my mind up to trying different types of rooibos.
Yesterday we went to a couple of open houses, then to a friend’s Dad’s Movember moustache birthday party (he’s battling cancer – hence the theme). By time I got home and finished some chores I was feeling tired so I slacked a little on my tealogs, so now it’s Sunday morning catch-up for me.
I polished off this tea last night. It’s not my favorite, but I’m not a big fan of red rooibos overall, so considering that, it’s pretty good. I wouldn’t go so far as saying that I’ll repurchase it, but I’m glad I gave it a try. I must say: I’m proud of myself that I made it through this tea without eating any of the pistachios. Hooray!
