This tea is how I first fell in love with honeybush. It is very sweet, flavourful (it re-brewed three times quite well), and smells like nectar. The dark orange brew is also a bit on the woody side, but in a really good way. It has none of the unpleasant quality that tea can have (astringency, tannic, bitter, leafy/grassy/vegetal), it is incapable of being any of those things, no matter how you brew it. A friend of mine keeps herbals around for when company comes over (she only drinks coffee), and I think I’ve almost consumed the entire box now.

If you enjoy rooibos and caramelized sugar, you will enjoy this herbal tisane very much. It is a top notch honeybush, but a bit plain when you are used to flavoured blends/variety like I am.

Flavors: Brown Sugar, Honey, Nectar, Nuts, Sugarcane, Sweet, Winter Honey, Wood

185 °F / 85 °C 5 min, 0 sec 17 OZ / 500 ML

Looks like I need to try this herbal. I’ve only had red rooibos so far but this sounds delicious

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
