Guys! Guys. This is a really good combination. You know how rooibos is kind of sweet, and kind of mild, and earthy, and almost spicy at times. And how pumpkin is also sweet, and mild and earthy, and then pumpkin pie has spices? You see where I’m going with this. There is some serious synergy in how the rooibos and the pumpkin pie flavor go together here, and the color is GORGEOUS and the whole thing is CAFFEINE-FREE so I get a pumpkin pie roobois latte for my bedtime snack.

The backstory is that I’d been over caffeinating a bit with Red Leaf’s matcha promotion so I decided to try the red matcha, which is powdered rooibos and thus caffeine free. It is very light and powdery,almost chalky in texture, and the color is a pastel version of normal rusty rooibos color. I’d say it has an even finer texture than the green matcha, and it mixes in really easily in comparison – a bit less tendency to clump.
This is ok plain, but it really shines latte-style with a bit of milk and sweetener (I like brown sugar or maples syrup); rooibos is slightly sweet on its own, definitely not bitter, but a little sweetener enhances the pumpkin pie flavor – less like just spices, and more like PIE! This is definitely one of my favorites so far!

Thanks! I was kind of dubious about the “red matcha” so it was a pleasant surprise to like it so much :)

For some reason the beginning of your post reminded me of this: http://imgur.com/gallery/EFbvm

I bet the pumpkin pie would be the perfect combo with this one! I might order it with the black base too, I think it’s my favorite flavor from them.

Hee, it may very well be a meme of some sort – those things get into your brain. And I’ve been wanting to try the black base! I think I got some with my next order.

The black base is really good with chocolatey flavors like tiramisu, cookies & cream, mocha, etc. They really compliment each other well, though I don’t know how good it would be with fruity flavors.
