Beautiful orangy color. Smalls like a perfectly balanced black tea blend. Tastes so too. A bit of sweetness, a bit of bitterness and a bit of smokeyness. Smooth and gentle yet very flavored. And the flavor last for a while. It’s a delicious one.

I’ve never tried honeybush tea before. I can see why they called it honey-bush. It has a sweet honey note to it. Very drinkable. Quite exquisite mild taste. Reminds me of something that i can’t quite define.

Now a bit of education:
“Honeybush tea is made as a simple herbal infusion. One of its early recognized benefits as a tea substitute is its lack of caffeine, which makes it especially suited for nighttime consumption and for those who experience nervousness and want to avoid ordinary tea. As a result, it had a reputation as a calming beverage, though it may not have any specific sedative properties.”
“The tea can be consumed daily, or can be rotated with other beverage teas, such as Rooibos and ordinary tea. For treatment of coughs, or as an aid in regulating blood sugar in diabetes, or helping reduce menopausal symptoms, the tea would be taken several times per day.”

This is a very yumy one. It’s grassy and nutty and tastes of autumn :) Not sweet, not bitter, just right and smooth.

Very dark leaves. They smell too yummy. Like fresh grass plus yummy hot roast chestnuts. Smells like winter. And funny enough today the cold weather has started here. This could easily be the best smelling tea leaves till now.

But lets see how it tastes :)

Tea is bright yellow. Smells similar to the leaves.

Mmmmm first impression is full roast taste. Smooth, nutty, roasty. It didn’t wow me but it’s quite a good one.

Leaves smells sweet, flowery. They look a fit lighter than usually.

Tea also smells floral. Tastes the same. Gentle. Tasty.
This is a boring review…

Leaves are dark green, they smell raster fresh grassy.

Tea is very light yellow. Also smells grassy.
Surprise, surprise, it tastes very grassy! It’s quite delicious. First sip seamed a bit watery but I changed my mind with the second one. It’s just as smooth as it should be. It only has a hint of nutty taste, mostly grassy tho. More green that oolongy.

(sipping further)

Leaves a really nice aftertaste in my mouth. Mhm, I like this one…

What I like about Yogi Tea’s is the little messages that come with every bag.
What I don’t like is too much spices, and barely any traces of actual tea flavor. But then again I guess that Aztecs didn’t make their potions with tea ;)

So the little message is:
“The mind is given to you, you are not given to the mind.”

My mind would disagree :)

So, on to this tea. I remember only not liking any of their spiced teas, I only find the morning green one ok.
Idk whats the color of this tea. This cup is black inside. I’m guessing brownish.
It does smell like chocolate, doesn’t taste like it. Well only in cacao hints perhaps. What I really do taste is liquorice. I can eat that only in candy shape. This way it ruined the tea. Kinda like hibiscus does it to teas.

So conclusion, it’s not yucky, it’s drinkable, but it’s not smooth and not well balanced with flavors. Choco tea should be smooth and creamy. Makes me wanna go make myself a cup of hot cocoa.

This tea has nice orange color and is very sweet and drinkable. The tropical taste really suites rooibos tea well. Perfect substitution to a fruit juice.

When you get a tea packed by germans, well, you get what you are supposed to get. Not many surprises there :)
This one is very yellow when steeped (pretty color), smells of freshly cut grass and is very grassy. Not sweet, slightly soury but not in a bad way. Very drinkable quality green tea.

Leaves smell very grassy green teeish, promising.

Mmmm the smell of tea is quite powerful and nice. Color is bright yellow.
Tastes sweet, very flavored, super smooth. Idk how I would describe the aroma. It has a bit of a nutty thing but also something almost a bit fruity and also flowery. Yeah, complex but yet so simple and delicious. Just yummy.

EDIT 4 months later:
still a n00b here but starting to get it ;) i try to buy loose tea but i got a lot of teabags too cuz it’s easier to find here. from not liking black tea ended up love it. green can be quite good too but waiting for more real ones to try. whites are sometimes awesome, sometimes not, rooibos and fruity blends are a good replacement for juices… and so on… still excited about every new tea… loving it more every day :D

since my favorite hobby is photography i take photos whenever something is interesting. including my tea making process…
