Let me set the scene. It is a gloomy rainy day. The house has fallen dark even with the occasional curtain open to allow what little light that may actually enter. I sit here quietly reading with my dear husband tinkering up the office and my 3 year old daughter taking a much needed nap all alone in the quit of my thoughts in my living room. All I can hear is the dull sound of rain passing through the video montior setup up in my daughters room. Then it dawns on me this is the perfect chance to have this tea. It smells of excitement, spice, and allure. Perhaps the perfect choice on a rainy day in Chicago. Here are my thoughts…

First, a strong sensation of “Red Hots” I was worried but then I take a sip it was a flavor explosion, this rooibos blend is not to be messed with. It is loud and in-charge. It is sophisticated. I had the urge to raise a pinky. Who am I kidding I raised my pinky. The “orange” is in my opinion the magic ingredient, simply brilliant. It keeps the cinnamon and cloves from fighting to the death and creates a controlled experience. It is like “Xanax” for teas. It let’s out just enough of it’s wild and bold character without being obnoxious and as a result a wonderful warm tea for gloomy days and cold days too.

Hi, my name is Rachana Rachel Carter. I am a long time tea addict, a bit of a geek, and as crafty as can be. When I am not running after the kids, changing diapers, and helping with homework I enjoy blogging about how tea applies to my life. For one, I am on a mission to get healthy while using tea every step of the way.
