A re-review of this tea
When I first purchased this tea last year I found it a little bland (mostly a woody taste with a very mild citrus taste that barely pops through). However, I just purchased another 50 grams and decided to give this tea another shot.
First off, I’d like to say that I’m sure they reformulated this tea. The package says honeybush, lime pieces, and orange peel. Nothing about lemon. With that being said, I brewed up this tea and my sentiments are the same: still a little bland. However, I have been adding lemon myrtle to the mix and I really enjoy the tea this way. Just like rooibos, I find it’s too bland on its own, but mixed with other stuff it’s a nice base tea. Still going to keep the rating at 69 on it’s own, but the way I make it with lemon myrtle, I would rate it probably a 75.
Side note: there is a local tea shop in my town called International House of Tea that I have yet to go to and they sell a sampler pack with different honeybush blends. When I get below 25 teas (minus the 24 days of tea samples (If you minus those ones out I’m at 27 teas…) I want to hit that place up and buy different sampler packs to try them out!
