I agree that this is not a strong-tasting tisane. In fact, brewed, you might mistake it for some really pleasant-tasting brownish water. It really doesn’t taste of much, and I couldn’t smell the watermelon in the bag, in the tea, or in the brewed leaves. Honeybush is my friend in general, but this is the only time I’ve tried it green, and, well…maybe green honeybush HAS no flavor? I’m going to try this iced with some sugar next time and see if that brings out the flavor.

On the upside, it doesn’t have any unpleasant aspects.

Hi, I’m a librarian, SCA member, and tea lover from Madison, WI. I’ve been drinking tea all my life, but have recently become more of a fanatic about it. Single, straight, and looking. Would love to take a date to one of the great tea places here in Madison!
