I wasn’t sure what I wanted this morning and this one seemed to beckon me. I’ve reached for it several times, only to smell it and change my mind.

Dry it smells sweet and almost peachy to me. I’m not one to like artificial peach so I’ve put it back down for fear it would taste much that way.

This steeps up a nice amber color, like most rooibos, and it smells sweet w/maybe a hint of vanilla… a nice surprise considering I assumed peach was going to come play. The flavor is much the same… vanilla w/a hint of cream & spice. I added a bit of sugar, as my usual, and could see myself trying this with a touch of milk/cream and maybe even a dash of nutmeg to see where the flavor goes. As it cools I get a little bit more spice… Yum!

I don’t really get eggnog as it is, but overall a very nice cup of tea that I could see myself enjoying especially while winding down of an evening. Thanks MissB!

37 yr old wife and mother who left her day job to take care of our son. Now running a property management business with my hubby.

I grew up on Lipton -hot w/milk & sugar, Lipton iced w/fresh spearmint and sugar, and Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime … Don’t criticize.

I came across Good Earth Original Sweet and Spicy out of chance and it spurred my interested in trying new teas because it was a flavor I had never had before in a tea. I’m now new to the world of loose leaf teas and looking forward to learning what I like as I journey through some new flavors. Hubby has always enjoyed the occasional cup when we’ve been out and about at restaurants.. now we will find out what good teas are really all about! On with the adventures!

Still relatively new to loose leaf, but I’m learning… Coconut, cinnamon, chai, chocolate, mint, & pineapple are just a few of the flavors I enjoy. I have found that I can do green teas so long as there are other flavors as well and it isn’t the primary flavor. I have only found 1 rooibos blend that was too woodsy for me, most of the time the base is hidden or blends well enough w/flavored versions for my liking. I’m beginning to enjoy fruit teas more and more. I occasionally like a straight black tea.

Hubby likes milder flavors, any base, berry flavors, sweet aromas, sometimes tart, and or floral, and chocolate to my surprise! Almost the opposite of me.. go figure!

My 8 year old just took interest and loves root beer.. so far Butterbeer is a hit, but we haven’t tried any root beer or cola teas yet.. soon thanks to the Marvelous MissB for sending some samples. He enjoyed Winter Nog (Della Terra) recently, but turned away something else I gave him.. darn if I can’t remember now what it was!
