Mmmmm… This tea is magical. It smells so delectably limey. I feel the brightness of the lemon all over my tongue. I get a sense of crust and cream cheese in the smell but not really the taste. There’s a smooth earthiness from the honeybush in the finish. There’s also a tingle in the back of my throat as I swallow. Kinda like a ghostly fizz. I love it. I also love that it’s not actually tart, but only hints at tartness. It’s very refreshing!
I’ve never had a honeybush tea before, but this is a good first impression. I definitely taste something similar to rooibus in this, but it lacks the strong medicinal flavor I associate with rooibus. I wonder what plain honeybush tastes like…
Anyway, I could drink tea this everyday! I can’t wait to try it cool.
Thank you LiberTEAS for the generous sample!
Edit: somewhere in my crazy mind I thought this was rooibus… I’ve fixed it so it doesn’t sound insane anymore.
