drank Honeybush by Adagio Teas
58 tasting notes

This was my first time trying honeybush and I just don’t like it. It smells cloyingly medicinal and tastes like something we should not have decided to eat. Luckily, I bought only a sample and my girlfriend liked it, so it won’t go to waste. I tried it plain and sweetened but it just wasn’t right for me. I didn’t finish the cup, a rarity. I haven’t added a numeric rating because I don’t know if this is a ‘good’ honeybush.

Bio

Here are the things I drink: Tea, water, coffee, beer, whiskey, wine.

I’ve been drinking tea since I was a little girl, but only recently began learning about tea and drinking loose leaf.

I prefer unflavored tea to flavored, tea leaves to tisanes, but I’m not inflexible and will try nearly anything.

I’m still learning, so thank you in advance for your patience and your help.

Also, I had to come up with a way to quantify my ratings because I was being really inconsistent:

100-90: Delicious, must keep in stock.

89-80: Excellent, a definite reorder.

79-70: Good, an occasional reorder.

69-50: Pleasant, but it was a one night stand.

49-30: Not good, but drinkable.

29-20: Bad, but I finished the cup.

19-10: Terrible. Couldn’t finish a cup.

10 and below: Undrinkable, requires mouthwash and counseling.
