I generally dislike fancy-flavoured tea but this one caught my eye because I’m almost instantly sold on anything related to bees. Well, I’m mostly glad I took the plunge — this smells pleasantly of honey and vanilla, and because it doesn’t contain any caffeine, it’s nice for you to relax with, even late at night. I foresee this coming in very handy when I am struck with yet another bout of insomnia.

As per serving suggestions, I sweetened it with a teaspoon of Manuka honey and the result was something that tasted like … honey chrysanthemum tea … with a lingering vanilla aftertaste. I’m kinda neutral on this. I can drink it every now and then, but it probably wouldn’t be my beverage of choice if I could have proper tea instead.

This feels like such a redundant review.

The review was informative for me. I’ve been on the fence about Manuka honey since it’s so expensive, but I may splurge. Right now I’m only adding brown sugar to herbal teas. Good luck with the insomnia.

I’m glad you found it useful! Yeah, Manuka is so horribly expensive, but I bought it because of its purported health benefits. If you’re just looking at honey as an alternative sweetener for your herbal teas, I think regular ones will do the trick. Thanks for the well wishes. 8)

Bio

I’ve been a casual tea drinker for some time now, but have only recently started to approach this whole tea-drinking business more seriously, exploring my options and paying more attention to what I buy. I’m partial to the delicate flavours of “traditional” no-frills Chinese tea but ironically enough, have fallen in love with fancy vintage bone china teacups. Heh.
