Leaf Type: Green Rooibos.
Where to Buy: Pooki’s Mahi
The latest craze in cocktails inspired the infusion of real fruit, herbs, and flowers with tea. Pooki’s Mahi Ginger Apple Swirl martini is a light and delicious tea cocktail. The novo martea’ni is fresh on the palate blending green rooibos, cinnamon, ginger, and Yunwu into a sweet “bomb.” Apple bits contribute a zesty tart green apple flavor while cornflowers eases sweetness without losing the crisp finish. Pooki’s Mahi Ginger Apple Swirl is one libation no one should miss after a hard day at the office.

Since starting with the SororiTea Sisters, I have been trying to make myself try teas that I normally wouldn’t. Ginger and I have not always been friends and it is in so many teas. It limits what I have tried in the past. I think my tastes are starting to change though. I have been finding teas with ginger that I’m finding myself starting to crave. This is one of them.
I stumbled upon this company on Amazon the other day. I had never even heard of them. From what I’m learning, this company is mainly into coffee or that is the first reaction you get when you check out their home page. They have quite a nice line up of single serve coffee blends that I will probably pick up for my boyfriend (who is addicted to our Keurig).
After gandering the coffee selection a bit, I hopped over to the tea selection. Wow, they have quite a selection. It looks like they even have some award winning teas. Unfortunately a lot of these teas have red rooibos in them. So I was happy when I found the Ginger Apple Swirl that had green rooibos in it. (We seriously need a green rooibos revolution!) This instantly went into my cart.
Upon opening the package, the tea smells just like apple cider. Like the kind you get at our local orchard. I steeped up the tea per the instructions on the package but I did put in an 2 extra tsps. I knew I wanted this iced. After the tea finished steeping for 3 minutes, I dumped the tea into a big cup of ice. The smell of this tea steeping just screamed Apple Cider.
Took my first sip, yep. Apple Cider tasting as well! Very good. All of the flavors play together nicely and create the taste you would want after smelling the tea. The apple flavoring is the main flavor with the ginger following suit. A tea that tastes exactly like it smells and the name. I was very pleased. I know this is more of a fall flavor, but the flavors are so bright and crisp, I’ll be drinking this one all the time. The only down side is that it is pricey if you go through the website. Amazon seemed to have cheaper prices so I’ll have to stock up here and there when I see a sale.
After looking at the site some more, I noticed that this is a tea you are supposed to use to make a cocktail. This would be amazing made up like a martini or add in some flavored vodka.
I know what I’ll be drinking later tonight.
