In my head I kept calling this Maple Pumpkin Marshmallow. There is no marshmallow here, and there isn’t supposed to be. I guess that is just wishful thinking on my part because I like marshmallow flavoring in my teas. Weird though.
Anyways, this is one of the samples that Sil very kindly dropped off for me yesterday. Thank you!! I was adding her teas into my steepster cupboard and thinking I had a lot of tea drinking to do in order to divide up some of the samples between me and Roswell Strange. However, I am trying to make sure that I am getting enough water and hydration – for me that has meant drinking at least 2 litres of water before drinking any tea. I had a late night last night though and started my day later than usual so I decided today I would allow that 2 litres to be made up of both water and tea, as long as the tea was caffeine free. Hence why this rooibos caught my attention.
It is very good. It is not rooibos forward at all, which I like. Instead it has a nice amount of ginger and cinnamon. Its supposed to have cocoa pieces but I am not getting that at all. Instead I am getting more a maple-y, cinnamon, ginger, and apple concoction. I wouldn’t label it Maple Pumpkin Rooibos from the taste given that but I am enjoying it nonetheless.
