I was a little disappointed when I first tasted this honeybush, but it was entirely my own fault. I brewed it up and poured myself a cup. When I tasted it, I felt let down with the lack of flavor. I left the rest and carried on with my laundry. When I returned I added a bit more of the brewed tea to my cup to warm it back up, but since I left the tea steeping, the flavor was much more true to what it was supposed to be like. Darn me and my excited impatience! This tea smells so good I even managed to get my husband to have a few sips, which is very remarkable since he refused to try almost all of the teas I’ve made in the past.

I have a feeling this would taste even more amazing as an iced tea in summer. I don’t think my sample will last that long, so hopefully I’ll catch it for sale sometime between now and summertime. A definite repurchase.

Thanks for letting me know. Now I will have to stalk the site and purchase strategically depending on what might be coming up next. Now I’m even more tempted to peek at what is up next…must…resist…temptation! hahaha!

Hmmm…for any of you who peeked ahead, would you mind sending me a personal message of how many caffeine free teas there are in this 12 teas extravaganza? (Please don’t post it here- we don’t want to ruin the surprise for others with these types of hints). This way I might be able to place my next 52teas order at the best time to catch all the ones that I am likely to use up most quickly before they are sold out.

I had the same experience with Honeybush when I tried it… I haven’t ‘recovered’ yet. I should probably retry again, when I tried it all I could think was ‘But.. but… but it said HONEY bush…’ :P

@JC – I definitely recommend giving honeybush another try, especially if you already have some in your cupboard. I have a tendency to just leave it steeping, and I like it best when it’s steeped well over the recommended time for most teas. Fingers crossed that you enjoy it much more if you decide to give it another chance.

That’s my mug! I’ve never really been a huge fan of Winnie the Pooh, but I like the fact that this mug is more or less clear. Plus, I can’t help but giggle when I say “ewww …I have Pooh on my mug” and people in the room gawk in horror before realizing I’m talking about Winnie. Am I easily amused? heck yeah!

A little something about my interests? – In no particular order, I love tea, makeup, paper crafting (card making), home renovations, and gardening.

As a rule, I tend to drink my tea without adding anything, but if that doesn’t work for me, I indulge in the fact that rules are meant to be broken. Yep! I’m such a rebel…sometimes I even color outside the of lines :P
