Unflavored, non-oxidized African honeybush. Surprisingly complex: light and sweet with a hint of lemony goodness.
I LOVE this as an iced tea. I’m normally all about the flavored teas, but this is such a nice, naturally sweet beverage, kind of like a nice Chinese green tea, except that it has a mild (and pleasing) lemony flavor to it.
Green honeybush? Is there a red honeybush like rooibos?
Oh yeah. We use the red honeybush in several blends (Pina Colada Honeybush, Raspberry Cream Cheese Danish and the Pomegranate Honeybush).
Oh wow! What’s the taste difference?
Well, the green Honeybush seems to be citrusy. It’s almost downright lemony. The red is more like rooibos, but without the woody aftertaste. It is sweeter and smoother in my opinion. I actually prefer it to rooibos myself.
I don’t like red rooibos at all and have yet to try green.
Green rooibos also has a kind of citrusy flavor to it, but not as pronounced as the green honeybush. We did a green rooibos with strawberry that was delicious (http://www.52teas.com/2009/02/26/strawberry-green-rooibos-experiment/).
Haha… um that was actually a link to (my… hehe) Mayan Chocolate Chai. =D
That is REALLY bizarre! I just pasted the address http://www.52teas.com/2009/02/26/strawberry-green-rooibos-experiment/ here and it links to a different tea. Very strange.
Sure, you tempt me w/ a sold out tea, shame shame =D
ha ha. Sorry. We will do another blend with green rooibos someday. Green honeybush too.
