My Cuppa: Rooibos and a few other goodies!

Just recently, while I was visiting Steeped and Infused, a tea shop in my neighbourhood, I came across a Rooibos blend they had on sale that sounded amazing! It was called Cinnamon Apple Yogurt. It was a mixture of cinnamon, apple bits, cornflower blossoms, some natural flavouring for the yogurt, I gather, and of course, Rooibos. I loved the appearance in its dry form where you could see specks of the blue cornflower and large particles of the apple. I thought I’d give it a try and purchase a small packet.

Rooibos and something blue!

To prepare this tisane, just follow the instructions from a past post I did on Rooibos. I used 2 teaspoons of Rooibos for 2 cups of water this time around. Make sure to use a sieve to remove the large particles after the infusion. Then sit back and enjoy!

In its dry state, I could really detect the aroma of cinnamon and apples. It was like warm apple pie! This scent was still prominent after infusion. I could even taste the cinnamon and apples. It was not strong nor bitter. I could not, however, smell or taste anything remotely like yogurt. It was likely something very subtle. Other than this, I think this is a lovely tisane and something I would definitely purchase again.
