Where To Buy: Sands of Thyme
Ingredients: rooibos, cherries, flavor, cinnamon, orange peels, ginger bits, cinnamon sticks, candied pineapple bits (pineapple, sugar), candied papaya bits (papaya, sugar), candied mango bits (mango, sugar), cardamom, star-anise, cloves, vanilla bits, rose petals
You know when you go to Folk Art Fairs and you smell dried fruits and spices in potpourri…that’s what this smells like! This is very nice and very home-E.
The ingredients go well with the Rooibos here. I can first taste the cherries and cinnamon/stick as well as a hint of vanilla and sugar. I can also pick up on subtle hints of pineapple, mango, and anise. The after taste is sugary-fruity-sweet.
This is tasty! There is a lot going on here but it’s a fun and interesting cuppa!

April Showers from Element Tea smells like Raisins, Carrots, and candy…as I first move it from the envelop and put some in my cup. It’s a bright reddish purple in color. When I saw the color of the liquid I was so afraid – I was thinking there was Hibiscus in it BUT thankfully…there is NO Hibiscus! That’s Beet Root I must be seeing!!!!
My first impression and tasting notes I could taste Carrots and Pineapple, then I can taste sugar or a candied-fruit. Then Lemon…and even some raisin. The after taste is that of Lemon and Apple. Nothing is overpowering and everything is playing nice with each other!
As it cools the carrot, lemon, pineapple, papaya, and candied fruit pop thru a bit more.
Honestly…this is most unusual but I am enjoying this much more that I ever thought I would! If one ingredient is a bit more noticeable than the other ingredients it just might be the carrot but like I said before…nothing is too overpowering.
