From 52teas

Spring always makes me a bit nostalgic for autumn, so, fair warning, this week’s tea and next week’s tea might put you in mind of October or November.

Here’s our premium African Honeybush, blended with real dried red delicious apple bits and natural apple and caramel flavors. The sweet apple and rich caramel flavors are a great complement to the honeybush. I’m sure you’re going to love it.

Several of our regular customers have pointed out that I “have a way with honeybush,” so don’t miss out on this latest honeybush blend.

Thank you to oOTeaOo for sending me this tea in our christmas swap!!!

Observation 1:My first honeybush! The boyfriend prepared this tea, he steeped it at boiling for 5 minutes. This liquuor steeps a pretty amber color. Was steeped loose in the teapot.

Observation 2: Naked, this tea has sweet notes with a prominent apple taste. Beneath that I can taste what I assume is the honeybush base followed by a light aftertaste of caramel.

Observation 3: With sugar to taste, I can mainly taste caramel, the bright apple flavor seems to get thrown to the background under sugar. The honeybush base is still prominently. best preparation for me

Observation 4: With milk, the honeybush runs the show with just a few drops of milk. Apple lingers above the flavors of the base.

Observation 5: With milk and sugar the honey bush and caramel are definitely prominent. I taste nuances indicative of apple.

Overall: I enjoyed this honeybush, I don’t think it will take precedence over rooibos for me, but it is very good and drawn my attention to 52Teas. I think the balance of the flavors needs to be adjusted a bit. It tastes like caramel and tastes like apple, but not at the same time. I would add more apple and maybe something nutty. Caramel apples are often covered in nuts and I think it would have been a nice touch.

Boyfriend review: Needs sugar, but very good with it.

I find this one smells great but the flavour doesn’t really follow suit. It’s pleasant and the honeybush is nice but I only get a kind of muted caramel flavour from it.

I don’t know where this came from, but the boyfriend asked if I thought it smelled like cigarettes. I didn’t, but apparently he did.

It has a fantastic scent. The flavour is a delicious balance of caramel and apple. Now I long for Autumn.

This one isn’t as tasty as the banana unsweetened, but once you add sweetener, I am definitely getting apple and caramel. Almost reminds me of the Celestial seasonal tea I love Caramel Apple Dream, which of course, I can’t find anymore. This will be a good substitute. Keeping it.

I love the Caramel Apple Dream tea, too! They have it at Walmart.

@teaqueen: Though I loath to go to Walmart during the holidays, I might just to have to make a trip to see if they still have this in stock since I’m nearly out. =/

teaqueen

I hate going to Walmart at this time of year too :( At least it won’t be too crowded in the tea aisle (hopefully).

Teeny Tiny TTB Round 2

Time to switch to some caffeine-free options! Yes, it’s the weekend, but I’d rather not completely ruin my sleep schedule. :P I haven’t been too impressed with the 52teas blends I’ve tried in the past, but this sounded interesting so I figured I’d give it a chance regardless. It appears to be just honeybush and flavoring – I don’t see any mix-ins. Dry scent is just a hint of caramel (I don’t blame any of these teas for not having a scent since they’ve been in a tiny box with a ton of other samples).

The steeped tea smells like… pie crust? Eh? There’s a little bit of apple aroma, but no caramel. Ugh, this is just weird tasting. The apple is sharp and almost alcoholic tasting? And it does taste like salted pie crust, not sure if that’s from the honeybush or what. I don’t really taste caramel. Overall, this is a weird one. Not horrible, but nothing close to what it’s supposed to be. Also, it’s leaving a weird artificial pie crust aftertaste in my mouth, egh.

Overboard TTB.

This is an ok tea. Tastes like honeybush and caramel. There’s a tiny bit of a chemical aftertaste, which I don’t care for. I’m not tasting any apple at all, which is disappointing. Not bad, but not anything special.

I associated that chemical taste with a weird vinegary kind of thing. Wasn’t my favorite, either.

I didn’t think the aftertaste was too bad, but overall this was kind of unremarkable.

Here is an autumnal one…. Someone else on Steepster gave this one a high rating after steeping for five minutes, so I tried it that way. I’m not sure how old this pouch is (I’m starting to wish all tea shops would put dates on their teas just so I’m not misjudging any teas that are really old and I don’t know it). The flavor isn’t very distinct – not very caramel or apple. Hints of apple and maybe a little sweetness. I could always use some honeybush blends around though. I love the pinkish color of the mug. I’m glad it isn’t rooibos anyway!

I was so sure I’d logged a note for this one. So sure. Apparently not, though!

I’ve tried this one twice now. The first time, I unthinkingly added a splash of milk. I’m not really sure why, just habit I think. The milk washed out most of this flavour, and it was just like drinking a cup of honeybush or rooibos. Okay, but nothing special.

I was more careful the second time, and there were no further milk-related incidents. In it’s natural state, this is a delicious blend. The caramel flavour comes our first, and is mild, but it’s definitely there. It’s like a thin caramelised sugar coating on an apple, which (surprise, surprise) is exactly what it’s supposed to be. The apple flavour is also fairly delicate, but it cuts through the initial sugary sweetness with a slightly sharp/sour tang. It’s a pretty perfect combination! The honeybush base is smooth, and adds an almost honeyed quality to each sip. It’s perfectly in keeping with the caramel vibe this one has going on.

I would have liked the overall taste to be a little stronger – more caramel, more apple – but it’s fine as is. It just needs a little focus to really appreciate, but that does make a change from some of the smack-me-in-the-face flavourings I’ve experienced recently.

I’ll enjoy the rest of this pouch, and I’m looking forward to comparing it with the oolong version that’s also sitting in my stash. When 52 Teas get flavouring right, they definitely get it right!

Thanks to The Cookie Lady for sharing this lovely tea. This is a nice relaxing (no caffeine) tea for my evening. The honey bush is present but not overpowering. The caramel and green apple are good. Well balanced flavors. Quite enjoyable and comforting. Not a top tea but nice on this fall evening.

Flavors: Caramel, Green Apple
