33 Tasting Notes
This is decent, although it’s pretty much woody honeybush with the merest hint of a mango half-remembered. I can’t decide if it’s better hot or iced, but maybe hot because cold and woody is kind of a weird flavor. A little bit of honey takes the edge off of the woodiness, and if I made it again I might steep it for less time. I’m also tempted to try tossing in a few chunks of actual dried mango.
I made this hot and it was a tad disappointing. Something about the warm fruit was a little off-putting and I wasn’t getting much of a tea-flavor. I’ll have to try again and vary the steeping time/water temp because it smells so good that I know it can taste better than this first attempt.
