This is the first cup of honeybush I’ve ever tasted, actually, and I was able to try this interesting flavor thanks to Kristin’s generosity. It’s not as strong as I had expected, and I’m not sure I can taste the cream cheese part, to be honest… just a really delectable raspberry tea. And I usually hate berry teas, so I’m really impressed. I’m learning not to say ‘never’ about any variety of tea. I’m really trying to use my imagination to get this stuff to match the photo of the gooey danish, but I think I’ll just settle for liking it as something simpler than what I expected.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec
Cofftea

I agree, it’s a great raspberry tea… but the cream cheese is all but nonexistant.

Kristin

That is exactly how I felt about it. Don’t get too attached to it since they are out of it forever (unless someone convinces Frank to reblend it).

Cofftea

No way would I get attached to a tea that tastes like it’s missing an ingredient that’s in the name. I realize this is not a black tea- but I wonder how the cream cheese flavor compares to that in Zoomdweebie’s cream cheese flavored black tea.

Lisbet

Heh, what I am really jonesing to try on 52teas right now is the Peanut Butter Chai, the Gingerbread Rooibos, and the Champagne Mojito. Oh, and the Buttered Raisin toast one (but I’m not sure I want a full bag of any of these is the problem! I’m so fickle!)

Kristin

Liz – the buttered cinnamon raisin toast (whole bag) is sitting in a drawer waiting to come to your house. I didn’t like it. Don’t buy it since I am going to send it to you.

Lisbet

I don’t think I’m going to wind up buying any of their stuff since I get all grumpy about having to buy a full bag without knowing if I’ll like it. Hmph to no samples!

Kristin

I know. Every time I buy something without getting a sample first, I hate it. Although i recently had a sample of something and then ordered a whole bag because I loved the sample… and then the whole bag tastes different to me. Seems like I can’t win!

Cofftea

Then just put it up for swap. At least you get free shipping no matter how much you order- not many companies do that.

Kristin

@Cofftea – I definitely will have a swap pile going soon too.

Cofftea

Idk, I probably should have tasted unflavored honeybush 1st- this was my 1st too.

Lisbet

Ohhhh free shipping? Ok, that’s a real bonus.
