I don’t think I’ve ever had a rooibos/mate blend before and I find the concept quite odd, since I usually reach for mate when I need a jolt of caffeine in the morning and for rooibos when I need a caffeine-free option. But flavor-wise, the combination does seem to work pretty well in this tea. The roobios gives it a pretty orange color and the mate brings a touch of earthy richness to the otherwise light tropical flavor. I don’t think this is something I need in my collection, but I enjoyed trying it out!

“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.” ~ C.S. Lewis

I was introduced to loose leaf tea by a roommate in 2012, but it wasn’t until I stumbled upon Steepster in 2014 that I discovered a world of tea that went beyond Teavana and the grocery store.

My tastes continue to evolve, but black tea is currently my favorite. I am especially drawn to strong, malty breakfast blends to wake me up in the morning and flavored dessert teas to sip throughout the day.

Just about everything in my cupboard is available to swap, so feel free to ask!
