Tea of the Week for April 23, 2018!
I have received quite a few requests to reblend my Rocky Road black tea - and I'll eventually get to that, I promise - but I got to thinking that the flavors of Rocky Road might go nicely with a base of caffeine-free Honeybush and Rooibos. That sweet, naturally nutty taste of the two herbs would enhance the almond notes of such a blend. So I decided I'd try it.
I didn't try to focus too much on the "ice cream" aspect of this, instead, I just went with the flavors of Rocky Road: Chocolate (cacao shells & nibs), Marshmallow (root) and Almond (nut-free essence). I also added a few white chocolate chips to add just a touch of creaminess to the cup (and they're vegan, of course!)
This is really quite a tasty low-caffeine treat. I say "low-caffeine" because while the honeybush and rooibos do not have caffeine, there is probably some caffeine to the cacao nibs and shells. And while I'm no expert when it comes to caffeine, I don't think the trace amounts that the nibs and shells would introduce to the cup are enough to keep you up at night - so I think this would make a really lovely 'late-night' sweet treat!
It's a sweet, chocolate-y, nutty, marshmallow-y cuppa!
