I’ve been on an anything-but-honeybush kick lately, but we’ll see if this one is enough to persuade me out of that particular funk…this brew came out richly red and almost overwhelmingly smelling of blueberries. I can still pick up the cardboard rooibos/honeybush smells that are icky, but I’ll give it a try regardless.
One sip in and I must say that I’m impressed. I added 1.5tsp of raw sugar and it did a fairly good job of bringing the berry flavour to the forefront and boosting the pastry notes that make this taste delightfully close to an actual streusel.
I’m still not the biggest fan of honeybush, but I would totally buy this one again…it was delicious.
