One of the harder things, as a mother of multiples, is to find a moment to myself when I’m not fraught with jangling nerves from listening to the cacophony of shrieks and crashes in stereo.
Extricating myself from the maelstrom of motherhood isn’t easy, so I’ve got to take my “me” moments when I can.
One of my favorite “mini vay-cay” things to do is to hide from my lovely, sweet girls and enjoy a “cuppa” (that’s British for ‘cup of tea’) and read the latest issue of Tea Time magazine.
So I was very happy to be asked to review Red Rose Tea’s newest flavor: Sunset Spice.
A premium blend of black tea, natural orange flavor and a touch of cinnamon and cardamom.
After opening the box, the first thing I noticed was the scent of of the spices – this is definitely something I was looking forward to drinking! It smelled so yummy, like a spice cookie!
So I got the water hotted up, and poured it in, letting it brew 5 mins. (directions say 3-5 mins)
After adding a little milk and honey, I took a sip. Ohhhh….nice! It was pretty smooth, and unlike other teas, after the first burst of flavor, it didn’t fade. The aftertaste was like color after color coming in to play, like a beautiful sunset!
The cardamom, then the cinnamon, then finally the orange, lingering like the final melange of hue before nightfall, leaving you with a pleasant memory, and the desire to do it all over again!
Red Rose Tea knows their business – they’ve been making fine teas since 1890.
