Roastorama

Yesterday I reviewed a handful of teas and mentioned one that I’m giving a try, namely, Celestial Seasonings Roastorama. I’ve made two small pots of it so far and it gets two thumbs up from me and by BIL. It has a robust and earthy flavor that is strikingly similar to that of coffee. It is delicious! If you try it, go into it with an open mind, not expecting it to be coffee or black tea. Give it a few sips. It’ll be wonderful for you!

My brother-in-law and I both tried a sip yesterday, held it in our mouths testing it out, and realized that it was pretty good, but different. Second sip we liked better, and by the third sip we were drinking it as if we’d been drinking this tea for years. It was lovely. He likes his straight up or with a little CoffeeMate Hazelnut creamer. I like it straight up or with a touch of sugar and milk. Either way, it is delightful.

    There are a few other alternatives you might try, for that “tea” taste. One I love is Rooibos Chai, which has the spices of a chai (usually vanilla, ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, etc) but with a rooibos (african red bush) base. It’s a bit brighter-tasting than traditional Masala Chai, but no caffeine, and works well with milk and sugar.

    I also once had a tea/decoction made from Chaga mushroom, which tasted like a mix between coffee and hot chocolate. Hard to find it in the United States, but a great medicinal.

    Thank you so much for these suggestion! I’ll look into them soon! And, of course, review them. 🙂
