Tangy, like a sour apple, sweet like a pineapple, and creamy with a a fragrance of banana is how I characterize the cherimoya. While this tea is not an exact replicate, its flavor profile is right there. I am glad it isn’t an artificial scent. The woodsy green rooibos allows this tea to be resteeped with a lingering flavor that still comes through. I coldsteeped my cup after brewing with hot water. Not a must-have but definitely try it if you like a unique fruity herbal blend.

Strong scented floral lavender, not at all camphorous. I enjoyed it as an herbal tea with the enjoyability of the dry astringency that Ceylon tea brings. I took it plain as is my custom for most teas, without addition of sugar or milk. It won’t be my daily go-to but I look forward to adding this to anything I want lavender to stand out.

I love this banana tea. The green tea/Genmaicha aspect gives it an interesting, almost banana pudding taste although I don’t get the cheesecake at all.

Tastes like DT’s Cookie but with a black tea base. Caramel and chocolately. Fun plus the darn cute art design on Lupicia’s tins get me every time.

Other reviews for this honey bush seem spot on but my palate is unable to identify which is rum flavoring and which is lime which sounds odd. The lime, as I can tell smells more lime peel than juice. I can taste occasional flashes of sweetness which I’m guessing comes from freeze-dried strawberries. I am definitely returning to leaving another note when I try this again. Not sure if honeybush coldsteeps well. I chose this tea because all of a sudden had a craving for a strawberry white so I am considering buying the Strawberry Mint Julep White.
