OK, the purpose of my blog is not to push products, but every once in a while, I need to share something I really love. Red Velvet Chocolate Tea is one of those things. I like chocolate a little too much, so I’m always looking for low-calorie versions of it. This stuff has no calories as far as I know (no calorie count on the canister) and it is delicious.
The ingredients are a little unusual: rooibos, chocolate, vanilla and beet root. I looked up rooibos, and according to Wikipedia, it’s “a member of the legume family of plants growing in South Africa‘s fynbos. Rooibos is used to make a herbal tea called rooibos tea, bush tea (esp. Southern Africa), redbush tea (esp. UK), South African red tea, or red tea.
Yesterday, while brewing some of this stuff, I noticed the dining room light fixture reflected in the cup and snapped this with my iPhone:
Yes, my real first name is on flickr and that’s fine. You can call me Ms. Pearl or Carole or whatever you wish. I do want to keep some anonymity so I can continue to take photos without people freaking out. I’m very happy to look like just another tourist. I am also careful to not exploit anyone or anything for this blog.
When we were in San Diego in November, I saw the coolest guy playing saxophone in Balboa Park, but he was busking and that crossed a line for me. I’ll be writing more about this subject tomorrow….
