Side note for my brother – ITS VEGAN! :)
Smell from bag – DROOL OMG Divine!
Slightly Tart Citrusy – Buttery – Creamy – Dreamy.
Water is about to boil and I am about to steep I am literally feeling my mouth water up with anticipation!
This had better be good lol.
This is my second flavor from 52Teas and the first one did NOT disappoint!
Oh and I am using my “big” teapot for the first time ever, because I have super high hopes. :)
I only wish honeybush did not have such a long steep time!
YAY its done!
Smell in cup: YUMMY makes me want to burn my mouth!
Its actually REFRESHING! how can that be? Its SO not good for you with all this cream, butter, candy like flavor…hummm….I get the orange or is it cranberry on the sides of my cheeks, MOUTH cheeks that is. Also on the mid part of the tongue, creamy on sides of tongue, this is a treat for the taste buds with different flavors and textures bouncing off one part to the other. I have not had honeybush before so I am not sure what to expect from it – not getting a typical “tea” flavor of any kind.
No astringency, no after taste, excellent flavorings!
I find the buttery flavor coming through now on the aftertaste but it does not linger and that is good. Makes me want another sip but does not “turn” into something terrible.
Its odd – every sip brings something a little different – now I am getting the butter in the full mouth.
I am anxious for the next cup which I will let cool down some to see how it tastes that way then will add some sweetener to the next cup to try that as well. This is one I want to play around with BUT is perfection just as is!
You know if you are worried about flavored teas or “sweet” teas this is not going to disappoint you at all! Its not sappy or sticky sweet and there is no lingering negative flavor additive effect OR sugar effect.
Very pleasant all the way around.

Bio

Most of my reviews will be “snippits” of full reviews that can be found at http://sororiteasisters.com/
Posted every evening at 6 EST.
I usually try to post the exact date that the full reviews will post however sometimes post dates need changed so it may not always be correct. Generally the dates are correct however.

About Me:

Most of my reviews, although not all, will be quite favorable of the tea. This is not because all tea is excellent, but more so because I generally will not waste my time on an inferior tea. If I do not care for a tea I won’t continue to drink it let alone spend time reviewing it. If you see a review by me you basically know it is a quality tea. Granted it may not suit your specific taste buds, we all like different things, but as for a tea on the whole it is a good one, from a good company.

I am a spiritual advisor by profession.
I have two “young adult” children.
Four cats and three dogs.

Some of my hobbies include gardening, essential oil therapy, natural perfumery with essential oils, and cooking.

I look for complexity overall in any tea, dimensions to the flavors.

I believe tea should evoke a feeling, thought, emotion, or attitude.

I enjoy most all oolongs, blacks, whites, and greens.

I always love to try a good yellow tea.

I favor unadulterated teas but I do have my longings for a good flavored tea now and then so I don’t rule them out by any means!

I enjoy green rooibos don not like red rooibos.
