This just arrived today with my second order of Cinnamon Roll Honeybush (yes, I am a fan!)

I was not expecting to like this much at all but I wanted to give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised! I don’t normally like banana in tea but this is very tasty. The coconut is more of a back-note and they both complement the mellow, roasted quality of the hojicha pretty well. These flavors are pronounced but they are not nauseating or artifical tasting, both of which can be an issue with flavored tea. There is a slight “cream” feel to this but I did cheat and punch it up some by adding vanilla soymilk to it also. Here is a nice afternoon or evening dessert tea which is also light in caffeine. I got two steeps out of this and they were both yummy. :)

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it
