52Teas Loose Leaf Rooibos Tisane 'Earl Pink'

Tea Information:
Tea: Earl Pink
Type: Rooibos a.k.a. Red Tisane (Tea is technically only from the camellia sinensis plant)

Description: Earl Grey’s lesser known cousin, Earl Pink preferred an herbal tea with raspberry and bergamot. In honor of him, we’ve created this blend of caffeine-free green rooibos blended with freeze-dried raspberry bits (lots and lots of them) and natural and organic bergamot and raspberry flavors. Thanks to my lovely wife for help with the name. I’m not sure I have the skills to Photoshop a tongue onto the portrait of Earl Grey for an “Earl Raspberry”.
