Lola from Sicilian Tea Company. . . .

This blend will makes you feel like singing, or humming along to your favorite pop song, comforting, pleasing, and drinkable. It’s a rooibos blend, so it’s decaf and full of feel-good antioxidants. There also warming cinnamon and a hint of relaxing lavender. Licorice root brings smooth, natural sweetness, almost fruity, like apples, which compliments the caramel tones of the red rooibos.

The rooibos is the dominant flavor, and if brewed strong, it will overwhelm the other flavors with the almost-medicine floral taste. This blend strong enough that it’s best brewed twice, for two full cups of flavor. This is a versatile tea, and can also be brewed ice with a splash of milk for a creamy, faux-caramel latte.

This is the perfect cup for when you need something sweet, easy, and comforting. Not to mention is will get the pop song stuck in your head… lalalalala Lola…

Organic Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla from The Tea Guy. . . . .

Been on a little bit of a hiatus the past month. Only drinking a few cups a week. Normally I don’t share much about my personal life but last Saturday (5/13/17 we may have time travelers reading this {har har} )at 3 am our son came into the world.  Now almost a week later I feel like my taste buds are back and little man is currently being fed by dad so I figured now would be a good time to get a post in.
This is a very unique rooibos. The flavors are subtle, almost to the point that I doubted that they were really there. Make sure to steep it for at least five minutes to truly extract all the flavors. Also, the flavors vary widely depending on the water temperature. When the water is hot – warm you will experience bourbon and vanilla. As it cools you will find the rooibos comes out more along with a strong oak flavor.
This is the first time I have tasted bourbon, let alone any alcohol, in a tea. It’s been quite awhile since I’ve had bourbon so getting acclimated to the flavor required at least half the cup.  The vanilla leaves a sweet sensation for the after taste.

Here’s the scoop!

Leaf Type: Rooibos

Not all vanilla extracts are created equally, nor taste the same.  Our chief tea sommelier spent a great deal of time, exploring & tasting what was available for vanilla rooibos tisanes.  The result was most always a let down.

So, when we decided to go head to head with the best vanilla rooibos’s out there, our job was clear, blow away the palates & imaginations of the huge following this infusion commands.

We choose the bourbon varietal bean extract & pieces. We soaked our organic rooibos in it for a time and then cupped it against the competition.  We were ecstatic with our result. You really outta try this so order a bag today!
