I’m giving myself a break because the reality is the whole world is dealing with a pandemic. I will not stress myself out about keeping up with my blog. I will do better and eventually get back on track. I’m getting things a bit more organized and will be scheduling some review posts soon so keep an eye out for those.
Just wanted to say a proper hello and life has been busy. My reading is not as consistent as it has been in the past for said reasons, but I have been drinking drinking tea with regularitea. I am opening myself up to the idea of being brevity on the blog along with more content that’s easier to create (tea) because I consume it so much.
Crème au Caramel Rooibos from Natur’el Tea
There is a story I’d like to share about this tea but I’ll save it for later. This rooibos blend is full of caramel goodness 5 minutes later and beyond.
- I used 1 tablespoon of tea, steeped in 1 cup of water as listed below with the following results
- 1st steep: steeped at 212°F for 5 mins – call home and share some of this caramel with someone you love
- 2nd steep: steeped at 212°F for 10 mins – the caramel notes aren’t as strong but present and plentiful even after steeping for 10 minutes.
- Both steeps topped with frothed almond milk mixed with hazelnut creamer.
important note: herbal blends are typically more forgiving with longer steeps. Since they are not made from the tea plant (Camellia sinensis) you can steep it a little longer.

“Do you both want to come to my house for tea?” asks Rose.
Eudora regards her for a moment. She doesn’t want to but is starting to realize that it’s difficult to refuse Rose.

THIS. BOOK. ALL. THE. FEELS. I tend to enjoy a book with an older protagonist and Eudora didn’t disappoint. I’ll share more thoughts on this one in a separate post. Thank you publisher (William Morrow) for gifted copy for review.
