Tea of the Week for November 18, 2019!
This tea was originally called “cinnamon pumpkin latte” but somewhere along the line, I omitted the cinnamon part. Cinnamon is really the only spice used in this (well, other than chicory), which is why I didn’t call it a PSL.
But that’s enough about all that. This is primarily a rooibos blend, but there is a little bit of honeybush in it to add a touch more honey-ish tones to the blend. I find that when you combine the two South African herbs, you get more honey and less woody flavors, which is why I combine them pretty often. To the organic herbs, I added pumpkin, cinnamon, marshmallow root & chicory. I also added a touch of vanilla essence.
I love the result. This has a nice pumpkin & cinnamon flavor coming through. Don’t get me wrong, I love the spice medley of pumpkin spice, but I like that this has a focus on cinnamon & pumpkin. The chicory adds a hint of coffee-ish flavor without the caffeine. The marshmallow root & vanilla essence gives this a light “latte” kind of taste without adding milk. It’s smooth, it’s warm, it’s seasonal & it’s really tasty! It’s also organic, VEGAN, gluten-free, caffeine free & allergen free!
