Mmm this is a tasty dessert rooibos. Thank you to VariaTEA for sharing! I coldbrewed this one because I’m too lazy to brew things properly. Instead I dump some looseleaf into a gravity steeper and fill it with water. No strainers, brew times, or water temperatures to worry about.

Red rooibos base, heavy minerals and vanilla, background flavour of carob, raw cocoa, and honey. It is basically a vanilla/honey/cocoa rooibos. The rooibos is very rooibosy, so avoid this one if you don’t prefer rooibos. I think it goes really well, and rooibos always takes flavour well.

Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Honey, Mineral, Rooibos, Vanilla

Bio

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
