drank Rooibos Spice by Mint Tea
4843 tasting notes


I bought a package of this tisane at Mint Tea which is a little tea house in Vancouver, WA, but I was told that their supplier of many of their loose leaf teas is Strand Tea, and after looking at their website, I found this tea on there. However, since I bought it from Mint Tea with their house “label” on it rather than a Strand label, I am calling it a tea from Mint Tea.

The ingredients are somewhat chai-like and there are flavors here that are chai-like but this isn’t quite as chai-like as I would have guessed based upon the ingredient list. The chicory and barley malt give this a different taste and “feel.” The chicory gives it a deep, toasty flavor that is very coffee-ish. The malt … well, it gives it a malt flavor. :)

I like the way the chicory and cacao work together in this tisane. Very pleasant and nice to sip on a cold winter’s evening.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
