My 1st honeybush and my 1st Twinings tea! For really not being that much of an orange person, I dunno what’s up w/ all these orange teas I’m drinking lately. Not only am I drinking a lot (like usual) of mandarin matcha, I’ve also had orange sencha this week- and now this.
I find it funny that this says it’s flavored w/ mandarin and orange. Isn’t mandarin a type of orange? When I take it out of the wrapper, I definitely smell orange- but I also smell a little bit of spice… is that the honeybush base?
1 bag/6oz almost boiling water, 5 min. The liquor is a reddish camel color and the aroma is almost exactly that of the raw leaf. It smells slighlty of orange jello, but there is definitely a more complex, grounded base to it.
Yay for consistancy! This tastes exactly like I was expecting it too. It still has a little jello aspect to it, but it’s also very rich and complex. If you love orange and honeybush, this is a must try.
