Description: Geeking out a bit this week, with a tribute to one of my favorite novels.
Here’s our Melange Rooibos with caffeine-free African rooibos, cinnamon, sweet green cardamom and clove. The rooibos makes a great base for these spices, and the result is amazing hot or iced. While we can’t attest to this tea’s ability to help you navigate folded space, we think it will put a smile on your face.
