I’ve really been feeling the fruity rooibos teas lately. They’re comforting in the colder months, with the fruitiness making me think of warmer weather. Kimberly’s Kupboard Green Roo-Berry is no exception. This green rooibos is one of my favorites because of its blueberry flavor, and I’ve really been enjoying it lately.
I really love that this tea is both all-natural and caffeine free. A few fruity and floral elements give it a great flavor, without the stress of anything artificial.
Ingredients: green rooibos tea, blueberries, rose hips, hibiscus flowers, cranberies and blue cornflowers.
Upon opening (and brewing), the first aroma I noticed was blueberries. And I LOVE BLUEBERRIES! They’ve always been a favorite fruit of mine since I was little, but I’ve never before had a blueberry tea so I was excited to try this one.
The rooibos and hibiscus flavors also stand out, while rose gives this blend a smoothness. To brew, I steeped this for 15 minutes with near boiling water. I didn’t think it needed any sweetener, but honey or agave would taste great and take this tea to the next level.
Overall, I love this berry tea. It brews a nice rosy color, and is a tasty treat on a cold winter day when you’re missing summertime. If happiness was a cup of tea, this would probably be it. It’s comforting and sweet, not bitter at all. If you love berries and hibiscus, and don’t do well with caffeine, this tea is perfect for you.
Also pictured above is the awesome handmade Galentine’s Day card my good friend Rachel from Life of a Female Bibliophile sent me! She always makes the cutest cards, and they make me so happy when they show up in my mailbox. If you love books you should check out her blog, it’s got great posts. It has also recently gone through a redesign and looks fabulous.
