Thank you Amanda for this Sample! I was just about to pull out the basket to stop the steep at 5 minutes when my cell rang….so I forgot and chatted another 5 minutes with my daughter about my Grandson’s story “My Wonderful Day With Grandma” where he got to break a plate at Taverna Greek Restaurant ‘OPA’ and spend the night. Soooo the tea went 10 minutes before I set it free to pour. Smells vanilla creamy…and very much like Panna Cotta with burnt sugar top. Where is that rhubarb? I know rhubarb is not just tart and can be cooked down to a warm and fat flavor, it really is a vegitable officially, almost in a vegital way but I could hardly detect it even as I enhaled deeply from the wet rooibos mix. It is there alright so barely that you have to know that it is not sweet or tart but more like a tomato is a fruit if that makes sense . As things go…if you like Panna Cotta this is fine and good. If you wanted Rhubarb it would be hard to find here. The fact that this is caffeine free is a plus.

Colorado Grandma

Grandmother to 3 teenaged girls and 5 young boys. (we all drink tea!) I began teatime in the Summer over 30 years ago when my children were little. We took a break from play for tea and snacks every day. My children loved tea time.
There are several tea houses close to my home and a Tea Festival in Boulder. Fort Collins is a bit of a foodie town. We brew lots of Beer (Fat Tire is one brand) and have several Spice Shops (Savory was one featured on Food Network).
Colorado State University is a mile from my home and the Rocky Mountains begin to climb at the end of my street. The climate is semi-arid with LOTS OF SUN AT 5000 feet. (Heavy Winter snows start in higher elevations). Living my whole life in Northern California (Silicon Valley) I have to admit that I LOVE IT HERE!!!
I attend a wonderful Greek Orthodox Church and enjoy cooking ethnic foods (all kinds). I am disabled with Migraines and Fibromyalgia.
My family is Bi-racial (African-American, Scots) and Bi-cultural, (Peru, Cyprus, France, Mexico, Native American)
