I would be the first to admit that when I go to make a pot a tea I almost automatically reach for either an oolong or a black tea. For some reason tonight however neither sounded good. I wanted something crisp and refreshing. I found this packet of rooibos sitting in my samples and it seemed to fit my craving.

This blend has of course rooibos along with lemongrass and marigold flowers. It has a crisp almost tart aroma of lemons when dry. Perfect! I set it up to brewing using 1200 ml of water to 2 tablespoons of the blend. According to the recommendations on the package, I set my water temp at 200 degrees and let it steep for 5 minutes.

The liquor of the blend is medium orange red and it has a creamy vanilla lemon aroma. I haven't ran across this scent before but it is delicious. This infusion is really sweet on its own and as creamy as the aroma indicated. It would almost be too sweet but the citrus from the lemongrass does an excellent job of cutting it. It almost reminds me of a hot lemon cream soda.

It wasn't exactly what I was looking for but it makes for a rather tasty drink. I would recommend this is anyone that is looking for a caffeine free dessert tea, or more properly a dessert infusion. I know that I am adding it on my wish list especially as it has enough body to be satisfy a black tea drinker.

Special Offer! Free shipping on all purchases over $50 from AmericanTeaRoom.com.
