Tay Teas Better Than Sex

19Nov09

I know, when you read the title, you may get a bit put off. Is this a tea review? You bet it is! I was generously sent a 4 ounce tin of Tay TeasBetter Than Sex, which is a rooibos tea flavored with mint leaves, vanilla, and dark chocolate. I didn’t have my hopes too high for trying this one, because I have never been a big fan of flavored rooibos blends in the past. I often find their flavor way too overpowering, like Teavana’s Hazelnut Dolce tea, which was a huge disappointment. However, when I wafted the leaves for the first time, I knew that something would be different about this tea. I brewed my first cup using two teaspoons of the tea (I like my rooibos strong), and 8 ounces of boiling water. I then infused the tea for around 4 minutes, which is similar to what they suggest. I took a taste and I really enjoyed it! As I got further into the cup, I was even more intrigued by its minty flavor. The chocolate in the blend itself was not too prevalent in the taste of the tea, but more in the aroma, where it could be smelled clearly, which complemented it well. The rooibos gave a nice balance to the mint, creating an invigorating taste and sensation (with the exception of its lack of caffeine), and I thoroughly enjoyed a cup and have made it part of my bedtime routine. I highly recommend this tea, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
