Stacey is bustling away in the kitchen making snowcap cookies for yet another potluck and I’m writing up a paper on microRNA, but we know the drill! Today, we bring you a spicy yet sweet Cinnamon Rooibos Chai!
Tea: Cinnamon Rooibos Chai
Description: Stay Focused
Cinnamon is so much more than just the tastiest spice around. According to aromatherapy principles, it supposedly enhances your ability to concentrate. Plus it has a clean and refreshing taste your breath will thank you for. Your new favourite beverage also contains South African rooibos, Zanzibar cloves and citrus oil. Delicious.
Ingredients: Red Rooibos, orange peel, cinnamon, cloves, natural honey and cinnamon flavouring.
Instructions: 1.5 tsp, 98°C, 4-7 min
Stacey: Hmm.. This cinnamon smell is scary!
Brooke: What if it tastes like hot lips?
Brooke: You should dare him.
Brooke: Normally rooibos teas are earthy but this is the first time I’ve had a sweet one. If you try to ignore the slap of sweet- this tea has some great hints of cinammon and clove that are deliciously spicy. Unfortunately they do get masked by the overwheling feeling of drinking a latte or something similar. I don’t think I’ll have it again! 2.5/5
Stacey: This tea doesn’t taste artificially sweet- it feels more natural. I wish there was more cinnamon. It’s not really a tea for me but I do know a lot of people who LOVE this tea so if you like sweet sugary teas- give it a try. 2/5
Oops! Apparently we prefer spicy to sweet and this one had too much sugar for our tastebuds. But don’t be discouraged by our numbers, folks. We’re just two roomies having a tea, after all! ; )
Until next tea,
Brooke and Stacey
