SO Good!!! I wasn’t expecting much from this (I bought it on sale at the market after I couldn’t find RoT’s new Red Velvet Cake tisane) but it is truly delicious! A great one for the rooibos haters – it didn’t taste roibossy in the least. It tastes strongly of Chai spices, then the chocolatey taste comes out on the swallow. I made it with a splash of milk and it was perfect – not washed out or weak. Actually, I’d call it robust! What a pleasant surprise!

Cute reusable tin too…always a bonus!

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
