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.

Bio

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
