“DH and I made this interesting drink tonight. From May 2008 Bon Appetit. We found the Rooibos herbal tea from the "Home Goods" store by our home (also linked to Marshalls Dept store where I am from). I don't usually care for tea, but I liked this drink. Go easy on the rosemary sprigs (maybe use small ones), otherwise they can taste kind of strong in the drink.”
