I got this with my order a couple of weeks ago, but this is my first time trying this particular tea from that order. I have tried the root beer float from NecessiTeas and that one was pretty good…
This is really very good.
I’m curious though, Frank… are those lilac blossoms or lavender blossoms?
I got my amazing envelope of goodies from TeaEqualsBliss and this was included. I’d never even heard of it before! Honestly, I’m not a big fan of root beer flavored things, but the bf likes them so I showed him this and his eyes almost popped out of his head. I brewed up a cup and he was in love! Apparently it tastes just like root beer, fizziness included. I didn’t try any since I was ensconced in my cassis & blueberry, BUT judging from his reaction this is a real winner. Thanks, TEB, for bringing this awesome tea into our lives!
Thanks to Jillian, I get to try this honeybush concoction. The smell from the bag is quite strong and sarsaparilla. I used to work at a cafe that made italian sodas and cream sodas and a popular one was sarsaparilla (root beer). I miss those syrups, quite the wonderful selection. I steeped this blend for 8 minutes in boiling water.
I’m not getting much of the “float” but the root beer is certainly there. I still taste the woodsy honeybush underneath the root beer, but I don’t mind it. I can’t see myself drinking this every day, but it is something I could see myself craving. Quite the treat. Thanks again Jillian for sending me samples!

Since I had luck with Smaug, I decided to try this blend even though I haven’t been overly fond of 52tea in the past. This one was ok. It did taste vaguely like rootbeer. The base was more smoky than what I was expecting and I could use stronger sassafras or wintergreen or sasparilla or something. It was just a little too mild for my root beer preference. Still better than the 52teas I’ve had in the past though.
This tea is very very interesting. I was a bit afraid of it. I mean, you know, hot root beer? I got up the nerve to try it today and was not at all disappointed. It’s really good.
The tea in the bag smells lightly of rootbeer and sweetness. Once brewed it smells like root beer. The dry tea leaves have big whole dried lilacs and jasmine flowers. It’s very pretty.
The tea tastes a little flowery and spicy at the same time. It’s actually a nice combination. The finish is where you really get the root beer float flavor. So, this tea went from being the scary bag in the tea drawer to a welcome addition. I actually glad that the root beer flavor in this is mild.
A big thank you to TeaEqualsBliss!
This tea smells like vanilla rootbeer. I was wondering about the jasmine and lavender being all up in there but I can’t really taste it. Or maybe it just blends in? Either way it makes the tea look pretty :D I am just getting little hints of rootbeer but I’m mostly tasting the vanilla and honeybush. It’s still really good though :] Thanks again TeaEqualsBliss!
So I finally made my first 52teas/SweetHoneybush purchase and decided to go with Root Beer Float! I was super excited to try this herbal, and I was definitely not disappointed. The herbal itself is even beautiful – with the jasmine and lilac blooms. The honeybush smells very much like a sweet root beer syrup, and I was worried that the taste wouldn’t follow through. But it’s great! The herbal blend has a dull root beer flavour and it’s very mellow. The roasted flavour notes of the honeybush also come through, which makes this a great base for a root beer flavoured tea! A great blend that I would recommend to honeybush – and root beer – lovers alike.
Day 2- 12 Teas of XMAS
Ok, after being insanely disappointed with day 1 (Smaug)*, this was slightly more exciting.
It is good, and has a pretty decent root beer flavor, but I am a huge fan of Butiki’s root beer float tea… and the Butiki root beer blows this one away, sorry to say.
*So as a geeky person, I can definitely appreciate that the Smaug tea was on the first day, considering the Hobbit just got released. I thought that was fun. However, these are flavors I just could never imagine enjoying in a tea. Hopefully I will work up enough courage to try it at some point, but most likely passing this one along to a friend :/
