rooibos latte

"We're out of cocoa." I think I must have pouted a little, because the barista was quick to react: "But you're looking for something non-caffeinated? How about something off-menu?" Intrigued, I asked him to expound on his suggestion. Rooibos tea put into the espresso basket and brewed like espresso? Then filled up with steamed milk just like a latte? Yes please!

And after adding half a pack of sugar (as I am wont to do with rooibos), I sat down and sipped the warm concoction, down to the dregs, accompanied by a good friend and healthy serving of laughter.

CONSUMED: Agro Cafe; Granville Island (in Railspur Alley), Vancouver
