Type: Rooibos Tea
Packaging: Loose Leaf
Description: Yeah, we did it. Peanut butter chips, freeze-dried strawberries and natural flavors blended with our caffeine-free African Rooibos.
Ingredients: Rooibos, peanut butter chips, freeze-dried strawberries, natural flavors
Amount: 4 tsp if I had followed directions it would have been 3
Water:22 ounces filtered boiling, but then sat for a little as we sniffed quizzically
Tool: Cast Iron Teapot with Mesh basket strainer
Steep Time: a little over 7 minutes
Dry Leaf Smell: It smells, just like a pbj sandwich
Steeped Tea Smell: Strawberry rooibos
Flavor: Rooibos, hint of strawberry, Militiajim found the hint of PB but it's hiding from me still
Liquor: Dark reddish-brown translucent
Perhaps I need to steep it longer?
Last night I drank a coconut custard pie, and tonight I drank a PBJ. I think I have a drinking problem (j/k) ;-)
Post-Steep Additives: none
It's getting 2/4 for being a solid rooibos, but that's all it's managed to be so far. The taste just isn't living up to the smell.
