Another tea to celebrate Black History Month! This one is from My Cup of Tea in Memphis. I thought this was a Black-owned business, but after doing some digging I don’t think it is. Someone correct me if I’m wrong on that. The shop operates in Orange Mound, Tennessee – the first and oldest African American community in the United States. They do a lot of work with the women in the community, and it seems that this is really more of a non-profit business teaching vocational and life skills to its residents. The tea I’m drinking from them today is part of a sachet sampler I bought that included several of their flavors. This one smells just like one of those pillow mints. I can taste the rooibos, but more so in the background, and it adds somewhat of a fruity flavor. It’s very interesting. I expected it to be a typical chocolate mint flavor, but there’s definitely something extra about this one.
Flavors: Chocolate, Fruity, Peppermint, Rooibos
