702 Tasting Notes
Mmm honeybush. I’ve only tried flavoured honeybush teas thus far and I’ve really enjoyed all them. Some more than others. I’m so excited I discovered honeybush since I don’t care for the taste of rooibos at all. I was surprised to discover honeybush is actually much more popular than rooibos in South Africa.
Also, completely not tea related I got an awesome new sweater at Lululemon and the rule I have is if I get something new, something from my collection has to go to pay for it. It was a difficult choice today. Ridiculous, I know.
Thanks Cavocorax for this one.
This is really reminding me of David’s Santa’s Secret. There is something different though. I’m thinking it’s ever so slightly creamier? I could be wrong. I’d have to try them side-by-side to know for sure.
It’s not too chocolatey, which is lovely. And the mint really comes out in the end. I’m enjoying my cup of this one.
I just don’t think I’m a fan of strawberry teas, but as far as this tea went it was quite delicious. They really got both the strawberry flavour, and especially the cream flavour down. The black base added a nice touch – it wasn’t overpowering at all and balanced the flavours out well.
Thanks Cavovorax :)
This tea is fascinating. I just received it in the mail yesterday so perhaps I should’ve waited a bit longer to try it? I also don’t think I’ve come even close to perfecting being able to taste the flavours through the honeybush base, but I’m working on it.
I’m getting a subtle creaminess from the marshmallow root and mostly a strawberry taste aside from that. I’m not completely sure how I feel about the taste. I think I’ll let it sit out a few more days before I try again.
Yum. I got this on a whim with my first ever 52Teas order and I’m quite pleased with it. My newfound love of marshmallow root compelled me to add this to my cart.
The lime taste is really lime jello to perfection. I love the addition of marshmallow root, just because I love marshmallow root haha. It’s really a lovely tea.
I can’t say I’ve ever even heard of lime jello salad, much less tried it, but I’m enjoying the tea regardless.
Update: The second steep of this is still quite tasty. I’m very happy with this tea.
I saw hibiscus in the ingredient list, but went ahead and picked up 10g of this anyway, just to try.
I’m happy to say the tea does not steep a deep pink-red colour that normally happens with hibiscus and it smells very passionfruit-y. The scent is reminding me of something fond I had when I was little, but I can’t quite put my finger on what that is.
Initial sips are all passionfruit. Yum! And YAY, no hibiscus overwhelming flavour! There is a very subtle tartness that I’m enjoying. Overall, this tea is really well done.
I can imagine this would be good cold too, but usually even when teas are good cold, I still prefer them hot haha.
Update: The second steep of this has slightly less flavour, but still lovely.
