drank Honey Bee by DAVIDsTEA
1212 tasting notes

Yesterday when I was driving up to my parents’ house, I passed a pick-up truck with a trailer. There was a sign on the back of the trailer that said “You’d be REAL STUPID to tailgate me! HONEYBEES” and I could not stop laughing for a good half mile.

I need something like mate this morning. My parents were leaving for a shuttle to the airport in Atlanta at 4am (they live 2 hours north of me, so it just seems funny I came up here and now they’re going down there) and it woke me up, and some bug was in my room and as I was trying to fall back asleep it like flew right at my ear.

And I have to take care of the dog and I’m sure he wants to go outside before a time I normally want to wake up, so now I’ve just stayed up.

This smells a lot like honey but it kind of weirds me out that there’s not actually any in here? Once it’s steeped it just seems very apparent that it’s just flavoring because it just doesn’t have the real complexities of honey. I didn’t like it while it was still pretty hot, as it’s cooled it’s gotten better.

I want to add honey but I feel that might make it taste too sweet for me. There’s just something slightly weird about how it tastes, but I’ll probably finish what I have and just consider it something I tried.

Fun story! I was up early too with lightning and thunder 4:30 a.m.
Isn’t the honey flavor supposed to be honeybush?

I don’t think there’s enough in the blend to make any sort of difference, but it’s more of a real honey flavor than I get from honeybush (so like I guess between honeybush and real honey, haha), and definitely from something added.

I find it tastes like pollen.

Bonnie

OK Krystaleyn, do you regularly eat pollen?

momo

lol, I actually can see how it tastes like that. And I do regularly eat pollen when the trees bloom because there’s no way out. One day it was over 9,000 particles per cubic meter of air! Everything tasted like pollen.

I do!! bee pollen is nature’s vitamin :P
—and it does have a similar flavour!

Kittenna

Hahahahaha! I can see that any plant-related comment could get me in trouble :P I honestly am not certain that I’ve ever deliberately eaten pollen, but perhaps it associates with the smell of a very fragrant flower for me. My roommate and I actually had the same discussion about how we thought it tasted like pollen but weren’t sure exactly why we thought that.
