This came as a Christmas gift from my brother with 3 other Teavana teas, I am tempted to tell him I don’t need any more tea but it’s hard to pass up tea gifts, isn’t it?
I’m not a big expert on honeybush, I’ve just had a few that came from 52Teas. I think its more appealing than rooibos but it seems to be more rare.
I let this steep for over 6 minutes by accident, my cup came out really dark. The resulting flavor seems to me like carob. It reminds me of Teecino which I don’t really mind. The vanilla is a nice addition here (but not really prominent) and then I ended up adding almond milk which doesn’t seem to be as good for tea as my usual Silk soymilk. It does have a pretty sweet aftertaste which is good for a dessert tea.
It is acceptable but I doubt I’ll be clamoring for more when the current supply runs out. I am inspired to look for some more honeybush teas now, however.
