This was the first weekend of the year where we had nothing but sunny skies. I managed to get out and plant myself a flower bed. That was quite rewarding in itself however I decided as another reward I wanted to check out a sample that was sent to me the last time that I ordered from White August Tea.

I don't tend to drink rooibos just in the evening because caffeine doesn't bother me. Instead I drink it when it fits according to the flavors that I am craving. This blend sounded yummy with pomegranates, coconut and blueberries. I brewed it up using boiling water and a six minute steep time. The resulting liquor is the rich red that you expect from a rooibos and the aroma is wonderfully berryish. Very sweet with a hint of nuttiness.

The coconut doesn't make its presence known in the aroma but it sure says hi in the flavor. The first thing that strikes me when I take a sip is the sweet creamy taste and texture of the coconut. It is then followed up strongly by both the tartness of the pomegranate with the lingering aftertaste of the blueberries. It is rare that I find a blend where the flavors are so distinct and come in waves. It is a very tasty change.

This is one of the better rooibos blends I have ran across and I will be picking up some the next time I order from White August. I do have to admit that won't be very far off as I have fallen in love with blends from this vendor.
