drank Rootbeer Tea by Sweet Cherubim
1496 tasting notes

One of the few handblended teas that Sweet Cherubim makes that has zero ingredients listed. Having said that, I can see large pieces of star anise and fennel everywhere… the rest could be almost anything. It tastes surprisingly like root beer, and smells even more so – I’m assuming there’s sasparilla root in it. I love this tea!

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 5 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

I’ve never heard of that company but Tealux makes a rootbeer tasting tea called Strawberry Sassafras (strange name). It’s a combo of green & white tea with other ingredients too. I’ve really enjoyed it but I know root beer teas are not for everyone.

That reminds me.. I need to try bit of rootbeer samples I was saving as cold steeps for my son :).

Ubacat.. Strawberry sassafras sounds like an interesting combo

Oh, it’s just a health food store that sells teas, herbals and spices in big jars you scoop out yourself. The blends come from (interestingly) a book written many years back by a friend of mine.

Rootbeer tea is fun! Because, really, that’s hot root beer started out…

*how root beer, silly me.

OMGsrsly

I hadn’t even thought to check Sweet Cherubim for tea. I tend to prefer Gaia Garden for herb stuff. Planning a trip now!

Not sure if I’d make a trip out of it – they mostly have boxed teas (Numi, etc.) and then their teas in the spice area… maybe 7-10, total? I grabbed the ones that interested me: Root Beer, Female, Allergy. They used to have one called Weight Loss that seems to have been discontinued, it was fantastic for stomach/bloating stuff. A few others for kids and sleep, one for aging/general health, and one for men.

I just love that I can grab as much (or little) as I want… including all the spices/herbs. Where’s Gaia Garden?

OMGsrsly

Apparently Broadway and Trafalger now! When I used to work on Granville Island they had a location there and I was always buying stuff to try. I haven’t been for ages, though. I thought they were near the Naam, and they are, but not quite how I remembered.

OMGsrsly

I LOVED the immofort, and they made me 100g with no peppermint at one time. You used to be able to buy any amount you wanted, but I’m not sure if you can anymore. At least, you can’t online.

Bio

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. I now travel full time with only two carryon bags to my name. One quarter of those bags are tea.

It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more.

If I have enough, I’m happy to share. If I’m in your area, I’d love to swap, meet for tea, and explore together.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, travel and my writing and speaking work.

What kinds of teas do I normally like?

YES: flavored teas, fruity, dessert, chai, and spicy (REALLY spicy).

A FONDNESS FOR: all white teas, malty black teas, any herbal or medicinal teas, strange/weird teas you can only get in one place.

ALLERGIC TO: strawberries, lavender

DISLIKES: any added sugars, grains, lapsang souchong, and overly floral teas – I might enjoy a Jasmine Green every once in a while, but unless it’s a creamy floral tea (think roses in a chai, or the smoothness of a floral note in a French tea), I’ll likely pass. Earl Greys are a hit or miss with me; heavy on the cream or fruit notes and I might like it, heavy on the blergamot and I definitely won’t.
