Episode 013: Organic Chocolate/Mint Rooibos Tea Blend

This blend from ESP Emporium is weird. It’s supposed to be a chocolate/mint rooibos blend, but you really don’t taste chocolate or mint in the resulting brew!

Rooibos is the base, which is good for a flavored blend like this. But you really taste the anise more than anything else. The mint that is in this blend is overshadowed completely by this. For some reason, the description on the website says there’s hints of vanilla and coconut. Are we tasting the same tea?

Episode 016: Chai-napple Gunpowder

Today I’m reviewing another fun blend from Zoomdweebie’s 52 Teas line — chai-napple gunpowder. They’ve mixed traditional gunpowder green tea with chai spaces (cinnamon, ginger, caramon) and freeze dried pineapple.

As a hot tea, this didn’t really float my boat. But once it cooled down to room temperature, those spices really came out and it was quite enjoyable with the sweetness of the pineapple. I can imagine this would be really tasty iced! Give it a try!
