Spring is upon us and with that comes delicious concoctions from our neighborhood Starbucks. One such drink is the new Rooibos Blossoming Rose Tea Latte, which features a rooibos tea base with rose syrup, steamed milk, and topped with hibiscus and rose flavoured sugar crystals.

Being a rose flavoured drink enthusiast, I couldn’t resist trying it. While it tastes amazing, I was hoping for a more natural and less sugary alternative. Luckily, I work at Kolya Naturals in Optimum Health Vitamins on 109th, and we have an abundance of natural loose teas that can be mixed and matched to your heart’s desire!

I got to mixing, and found a combination that tasted so similar I just had to share with the world!
