Today's post is mixing it up a little bit and I hope some of you out there are interested in it! I don't know if you're aware but I have a serious tea problem. I drink on average 3 cups a day, and since getting a milk steamer/frother last month my tea latte game has seriously shot up. Mmmm latte....
Anyway! In the interest of checking out some of my fav teas and with the goal of also being able to feature some of my several billion (exaggeration) tea cups I'm occasionally going to throw some tea reviews in with all the nails and beauty. Hooray diversification! The idea of reviewing tea at all was also inspired by one of my favourite tea (and polish!) blogs: Tea & Nail Polish! Check her out too, if you want to see more yummy tea!
Cotton Candy Rooibos Tea from the 2016 Carnival Collection
Ingredients: Green rooibos, sprinkles (sugar, salt, artificial flavouring, red 3, blue 1), mango (mango, sugar, citric acid, sulfur dioxide), brittle (sugar, hazelnuts, invert sugar), natural and artificial flavouring.
Directions: Use 1-2 spoonfuls and steep for 4-7 minutes at near boiling temperatures.
When I originally saw this tea at DavidsTea I was excited to try it because of how lovely it is to look at with the coloured sugar pieces scattered throughout. It's just fun to look at! But then I tasted it and I fell in love~
I can't stress how much this tastes like cotton candy. Like, you close your mouth and you legit feel like you have a mouthful of melted cotton candy. It is SO SWEET and SO GOOD! My preferred way of drinking it is with steamed milk in a tea latte with two pumps of agave (because I have a huge sweet tooth). And let's be honest after looking at that ingredient list: a normal person would not need to add more sweetness to this tea!
The teacup I'm featuring along with the tea today is one I inherited from my grandma. It's a gorgeous soft pink with gold floral etching all over, and the fun and girly look made it feel like a perfect match to go with a cotton candy tea. :)
If you want to give this tea a try head down to DavidsTea now to grab it because I don't know how long it will be here for! You can get a container of 85g on sale right now for $9 CAD!
So that's it for my first (second, technically) tea post! Let me know what you think, and if this is something you would be interested in seeing once a month or so from me in the future. Thanks for visiting! xx
