|organic cinnamon rooibos chai by DAVIDs TEA|
Look at that! Looooook at thaaaatt!!! Do you see that gorgeous deep rich red? This is fire. Red hot embers. It glows.
This tea with a too long name claims that it “enhances your ability to concentrate”. Do I need that? Well, I’m sitting here writing a blog about organic cinnamon rooibos chai instead of writing a paper about online formative assessment, and before that I was reading a juicy expose about Scientology, and before that I was washing the dishes, and before that, I was searching for a replacement drill battery,and….well….concentration is in short supply around here.
So, I`m not a huge fan of chai these days. I went through a chai craze a couple of years ago, and I think I got all chai-ed out. The cinnamon was always too strong. I don’t like the ‘hot’ spicy taste too much. But I`m enchanted with the fiery red rooibos and the promise of ‘enhanced concentration’, so I’m gonna give it a go!
Opening the tin, it smells like Christmas. The combination of cinnamon, cloves, and oranges always smells like Christmas to me. I should have had this one a month ago when the Christmas lights and stockings were up!
Brewed, the tea is a deep glowing red and smells like cinnamon hearts. There we go…Christmas AND Valentine’s Day all in one!
The taste is WOW! Nice! It’s a sweet cinnamon and orange, without the fire! It’s a very pleasant cinnamon…not too hot. This could be the perfect chai! I think the orange balances it beautifully. I can’t believe this cinnamon! It tastes so good, and isn’t burning my tongue! This is delightful!
Ohhh… I’d better go now…time to get back to work… I feel some concentration coming on.
This rooibos (which isn’t really tea, by the way) is available at DAVIDs TEA.
