Okay, my idea.
Does anyone else enjoy the tea hobby?

I'm very new to it. My variable-temperature kettle (utiliTEA) and brewer (ingenuiTEA) and ThinkGeek tea sampler arrived yesterday, and my Adagio teas should get here today. I'm making a chai latte with the Pirate Chai tea. I frothed milk on the stove for it. It's steeping now. I probably will have to do this a few more times before I get the timing right and can keep everything hot enough. I'm insanely excited to try my Merlin and Arthur fandom blends and other new looseleaf teas today. :D

I wanted to add that I recently had a cup of rooibos with rose hips that was very nice. I'm not sure where I got it from as I found it in the back of my stash of teas that I've collected over the years. But if you were to add a little honey... bliss.

Also, I wasn't aware of cactus (cacti?) flowers used in teas. Makes sense though and sounds nice.
