Advent Tea 9: Organic Cinnamon Rooibos Chai Tea

Today’s tea was the first rooibos tea featured in the advent calendar of tea.  The name of the tea is a very apt description of the ingredients: rooibos, cinnamon, and apple.  Simple with few additives. The dry tea has a beautiful rusty colour to it and when steeped the tea smells faintly of cinnamon.   It’s caffeine free so didn’t provide a morning pick me up but was a tasty warm beverage.

I liked that the cinnamon wasn’t overpowering in this blend.  But I was a bit disappointed that it didn’t really have the flavour that I normally associated with chai.  It’s good just not what I was expecting.
