A sample from VariaTEA! I’ve tried a few honey rooibos blends to date, and I’ve enjoyed pretty much all of them. Some more than others, it has to be said, but I’m pleased to say there’s not been a real dud so far. I’m encouraged by this one, because the dry leaf inside the bag smells very strongly of honey, and it’s not even touched water yet! I gave one bag 5 minutes in boiling water, and added a splash of milk.
To taste, this one has a strong initial hit of thick, syrupy, runny honey! It’s almost like drinking a cup of the real thing, only conveniently less sticky and viscous. The rooibos is fairly mild, and I think the milk helps with that a little bit. It’s very smooth and easy to drink, and the honey flavouring really shines.
This will probably be my last cup of the day at work, and it’s a good note to end on. The perfect sweet afternoon treat, and nicely calming and relaxing too. Sometimes I don’t realise how tense I am until I take a minute out, making teas like this a necessity. Yummy stuff!
sooo this was the other tea i had last night before passing out because i figured honey was good…and no caffeine was probably good. the best part about this tea was that it got me to my goal of 95 teas in July! woot woot!
i remember this being pretty tasty. not overly rooibos like but with a sweetness to it and at times an almost spicy note…but not really. not sure how to describe it. either way, this was a decent end cap to yesterday!
Final Count: 97 (surprise cavo teas!)
An early spring warmth had us craving something sweet, fruity, and possibly iced. After smelling a couple of Ceylon Tea Bush’s fruity options, my sister settled on an iced Mango Tropics with shot of peach syrup.
It was sweet, fruity, and it was iced, but its flavour left us both wanting a little more. It certainly wasn’t good enough to convince me to buy any for home use, but my husband enjoyed it, in fact preferring it to the Passion Berry he had ordered.
An early spring warmth had me craving something sweet, fruity, and possibly iced. After smelling a couple of Ceylon Tea Bush’s fruity options, I settled on an Iced Passion Berry, with a peach syrup shot.
It was sweet, it was strongly flavoured, it was fruity, it was pretty good. Not good enough to convince me to buy any of the leaves as I have other fruity teas at home that make wonderful iced teas, but it was pretty good.
Side note: my husband also ordered one, and ended up trading with my sister for her Mango Tropical Iced tea, as he found it a little too heavy a flavour for his liking.
I had my final interview today with Staples and I am hoping all went well. It was earlier than I am used to waking up lately so I have myself some extra motivation by deciding that after the interview I would drop in at the bakery that sells this tasty tea. So, on my way home, I picked up a tin and brewed it up when I got back. Now I am sipping on this deliciously sweet rooibos treat. Yum! Glad to finally have it in my cupboard.
Due to the temperature outside being unseasonably warm, I took over the extra food I got to store in a friend’s deep freezer. Typically this friend comes to me to have tea and study but instead she made me a pot of tea. This was a blend she got from her brother for Christmas and though I worried it would be too rooibosy for my taste, I gave her the benefit of the doubt that it would be a tasty cup. Furthermore, it had a beautiful honey smell that I could not pass up.
Tastewise, this was a delicious cup of liquid honey. Honey Bee is called to mind but it was no where near as cloying because the rooibos toned down the sweetness. A delicious blend that I will definitely be grabbing some more of when I go back to Thornhill.
