Thanks to AJRImmer for a chance to try this blend!

I made the mistake of trying this before bed because I thought it was a rooibos blend, however it is actually a rooibos/yerba mate blend. Oops. The name is quite accurate in that this tastes like gingerbread spices. I didn’t taste any cookie flavour or brown sugar/vanilla type flavours, so this was more of a gingerbread spice flavour than a cookie flavour. Still, it was a nice winter blend on a very wet and cold days.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Ginger, Spices, Spicy

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

Any favorite teas you would recommend that do taste like cookies?

AJRimmer

Oh whoops I thought it was just rooibos as well! Luckily I usually take this one to work so I haven’t had it at night before. Shae, I recommend snickerdoodle from Simpson & Vail. One of my absolute favorites.

Oh actually the tea I sent was this one:

So it is just rooibos and no mate! I didn’t realize they had two different versions.

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
