Tisane of the evening…. (SRP #42)
This one comes from Amanda. Thank you!
Surprisingly, I was in the mood for a hot drink this evening as the temp is cooling pretty well and the humidity is going down. I think it got up to the mid 80s today which necessitated my favorite Lychee iced tea for the afternoon. I am so thankful for the break in the heat. My new a/c system (since the old one pretty much died) comes on Thursday. I can definitely handle a high of 71 for tomorrow! Since I grew up with a/c, I am such a wimp for heat and humidity. I know some love not using it, but I pretty much need it to function on hot days. Low 70s is my favorite weather!
I am usually not a fan or rooibos, but I will admit that this one is interesting. I do agree with other reviewers that it kind of reminds me of yogurt. I did not really get rhubarb, but I do detect a creamy tartness. After the first few sips, I sweetened it to the point where I actually could only taste the sweet and the rooibos, so that was kind of an error on my part. I know it is not something I would buy, but it is always good to see how different flavors blend with a particular tea base. I am always up for a little palate training as well as flavor blending ideas, so I am thankful for the chance to try this.
Mug method. 3 tsp, about 15 oz. boiling water for 5 minutes.
