This tastes exactly as the same suggests. Very, very nutty, with a touch of banana and an even lighter touch of cinnamon. I’d imagine this would be good with milk.

This is normally a flavor I would create for cooler weather – it seems kind of autumnal or even winter-ish. But I was in the mood for something comforting, so I went for it. I focused primarily on the nutty aspect of this cup – a stronger walnut flavor that is complimented by the natural nutty tones of the honeybush – and then added some banana and cinnamon to compliment the toasty, slightly sweet, slightly earthy nutty flavors.
And even though this is – admittedly – a very autumnal tea, I am loving every sip of it!
It makes for a lovely nighttime cup – for something just a little sweet after a meal. It’s a very comforting taste – and really, when I’m drinking honeybush, I’m usually looking for something comforting because of it’s naturally honeyed sweetness and nutty tones – so these flavors work themselves right in there with what I’m looking for when it comes to honeybush. It tastes like nut, it tastes honey-ish, it has a lovely, light banana note to it. The spice is really delicate. The cinnamon wasn’t put there to create a spicy taste at all – but just a little something extra. It offers a hint of contrast and it works wonderfully! This plays out so well – it tastes delicious!
And, it’s also naturally caffeine-free, organic, VEGAN, gluten-free and yes, allergen-free . . . even for those of you who are allergic to nuts. It tastes like nuts – without any nuts!

This is our Tea of the Week for June 17 – and it’s what’s in my cold-brewed pitcher at the moment. I like this one as an iced tea – but I think this one is better served hot. Served hot, I taste more of the cinnamon which is still a rather subtle flavor when hot – but when iced, it’s much softer.
The star of this tea is the nutty flavor and it ties in well with the natural nutty tones of the honeybush. The banana comes through as an undertone. The cinnamon is just enough to cut through some of the sweeter nutty flavors. It works well together and it does make a refreshingly different iced tea.
