Why this Pumpkin Spice Rooibos Tea is Choice in the Fall
Orange colored tin? Sweet. Tetrahedron-shaped tea bags? Awesome. Pumpkin flavored, caffeine-free hot drink that takes two seconds to make? I’ll take it. In fact, I’ll take it so often that I run out of glass mugs for tea. Not yoking. So here you go: Pumpkin Spice Rooibos Tea from Traders Joe’s.
This Pumpkin Spice Rooibos Tea was not my first taste of a rooibos tea. My first time was at Starbucks after I asked for something flavorful, caffeine-free, and well, not boring like chamomile. Since trying their Vanilla Rooibos, I’ve seen rooibos teas everywhere. Rooibos is not really a tea (it’s a tisane) and it’s flavor is naturally robust and nutty. Sorta like coffee. And me.
This particular rooibos, Pumpkin Spice Rooibos Tea, is no exception: It’s packed with flavor. A little honey is all it needs. But, being impatient for it to brew, I topped it off with a little pumpkin spice and cinnamon, too. I like it very sweet, so I added a little of that stevia crap that Lydia is always putting in her tea.
‘Tis the season for pumpkin. And ’tis the season for hot tea. This Pumpkin Spice Rooibos Tea from Trader Joe’s is not only seasonal, but since it’s so choice in the fall, is in high demand. I went last night to re-up and found they were on back-order. Not surprising. I’ve had it once or twice per day since I got it my first tin.
Get it while you (orange) can. Now!
Not sure why, but tea bags shaped like this (tetrahedron) are so much more enjoyable to use than regularly-shaped, flat tea bags.
On second look, they might not be true tetrahedrons. Regardless, they’re engineered so much better than the tea bags I’m used to. Plus, the tag is very sturdy — easy for hooking on the mug.
That looks pretty pyramid-ish. Well, enough about the shape. Check the pumpkin rooibos contents. Dank.
I usually drop honey in the mug before adding water. Saves a spoon.
There’s already pumpkin spice in the tea itself. But I lack patience and ability resist indulgence.
Then I added more honey.
And, voila. Kick-ass, pumpkin flavored tea. Get some now.
