drank Lemon Drop Cooler by 52teas
2878 tasting notes

I scavenged for this, not because it fits the March list (discontinued—this is an original with a Frank label on it), but because last night I wanted to melt the glop in my throat with something extremely lemony. Due to its age, I doubled up on the leaf, but it was still as pleasant as I remember it. The rooibos didn’t interfere with the lemon and vice versa.

This is one that I won’t be able to recreate because I’ve not been able to source green honeybush anywhere, unfortunately. :( Any reblend would be a new interpretation/version of it but obviously without the green honeybush unless I’m able to find a source for it.

I didn’t read the label carefully enough to catch green honeybush! No wonder I like(d) it so much. I don’t know if it had much of a fan following in its original days.

yeah, it seems all the focus was on the oxidized honeybush and not the green – and I can’t find it – none of my usual suppliers carry it. Green rooibos is fairly easy to find, but not the honeybush.

I didn’t even know green honeybush existed! Now I’d love to find some somewhere.
