Today has turned out to be a 52Teas honeybush blend day. It just turned out that I had a few one or two cup samples of their honeybush blends and since I splurged excessively this Black Friday I need to clear a lot of space in my cupboard. Samples are one easy way to shift a few things, realistically I need to keep drinking as much as I can.
Which brings me to an idea I was thinking of for my friends and followers only, since I have so much tea I would like to gift away three packages of random samples to people. All you have to do is message me via this post to claim one package and I will sort things out. It’s first come first serve and I’m happy to ship internationally.
Back on topic of the tea. Once steeped it has a creamy cocoa scent with a soft hint of strawberry. Enough to actually smell like Neapolitan though.
Flavour matches the scent nicely, it’s like creamy cocoa with something sweet and fruity (in this case strawberry) lurking around the after taste. For such a long steep it’s only medium strength and has no honeybush characteristics ie no sour tang or medicinal taste.
It’s nice but I have a feeling if I want the flavours pop just that little bit more it needs some sugar.
Holy Moly that is much better. It’s twice as creamy and the strawberry stands out more now it’s sweeter, but at the same time the cocoa is still very much present. It’s very Neapolitan, I can see why this is such a big hit. I think this is one of my new favourite 52Teas honeybush blends. Certainly the best I have tried today. :) If I get more I will try it iced.
