Luxurious and inexpensive tea
I went out for tea with a good friend of mine a couple of years ago. We were all set to gorge ourselves on caffeine but one the teas available was rooibos cocoa mint. Well, we had to try it. It was addictive.
The brand they offered is not stocked by my local grocery stores, and the chi-chi stores further out don't stock that particular flavor. I did know that I was going to grow chocolate mint so I figured I could be patient. (It also helped that the friend who made this delicious meal got a similar tea and was happy to supply me with cups anytime I visited.)
I also like to make tea from pineapple sage. I'll just pour hot water over a bunch of cut pineapple sage leaves and allow them to steep. I also like it a little sweet, so I add a smidge of honey.
