Another from Momo’s teaboxB! I just got the ’Here’s Hoping’ teabox I started back today, but I haven’t opened it yet because I’d really like to get a handle on this teabox first. Teabox B is definitely first priority, but I might not be able to mail both boxes until the same time anyway. I’d like to at least have it ready to go in case I CAN make it to the PO though. I will resist the urge to even open the other teabox for a couple days! It is BIG. There are at least ten more teas I’d like to try from this teabox, but it will probably end up being more.
Anyway, on to the tea. This might be the first straight green rooibos I’ve tried. (I know Teataku after me in the teabox order wants green rooibos so I will just try a teaspoon! :D) It’s actually very nice! Green rooibos seems to pair very well with pear (I swear I didn’t mean to just use pair and pear in the same sentence.) There is less of a cream flavor but there is definitely a pear flavor! Seems kind of like apple at times. But the pear is very distinct throughout the entire cup. The rooibos is nice and less scratchy on my throat than most rooibos. A nice change from red rooibos! I really need to find some tea filter bags for rooibos though, as I suddenly stopped loving rooibos as much as I once did. But I’m sure filter teabags would help!
