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!
