Wow, this is just the most unusual tea ever! It really does remind me of cherry cola- and the smell is pure ‘cherry cola gum’ (ever had that before? I know lots of sweets come in this flavor and I imagine the same flavoring is used to make this tea). Anyway, it’s totally unexpected in a tea. As honeybush has the same reputed health benefits that rooibos does (antioxidants, calming, rumored even to help with allergies and tummy woog- google it!) this is a nice alternative to soda- caffeine free, too. I think I really do like it! I say ‘I think’ because I’m still getting used to it. :) I too feel as though I can detect a fizziness to it, and I usually don’t succumb to the placebo effect- maybe it’s not a placebo effect!
Such an interesting tea, that I got to try thanks to Kristin. I’m going to cherish the rest of this sample and then order my own.
p.s. my electric kettle pooped out on me mid-dorm life in the language camp! So I nabbed Adagio’s utilitea kettle and I am loving it. I can apparently send anyone a coupon for it so PM me if you’re interested.
