This honey-flavoured, honeybush tea is just about the sweetest energy-enhancer around. It has all the zest of real lemon and lemon myrtle, and all the smooth flavour of rooibos and green rooibos. But the real secret ingredient? Green maté. It provides a beautiful burst of energy for both mind and body. Strewn with calendula petals and cornflowers, this is the nectar of choice for busy bees.
Ingredients: Red and green rooibos, honeybush, green mate, lemon bits, lemon myrtle, calendula petals, blue cornflowers. With artificial and natural flavouring*.

I have mixed feelings about this tea. I have had it multiple times as a latte from the store sweetened with agave. I bought myself a 50g bag of this for home. I just tried this today and unsweetened without milk the flavour and sweetness is completely missing. Since I have started really enjoying good quality tea I have been drinking my tea`s without milk and sugar and I have enjoyed the majority of them. I would prefer this tea if the sweetness of the smell and the honeybush would come through in the tea straight.
Honey-sweet with a hint of floral, this always makes me feel like I’m drinking nectar. It’s not cloying, but pleasantly sweet, and goes down very easily. Plus, high caffeine, which I also appreciate right now — sleep and I were not on the same page last night.
I really should consider keeping a stock of this one. It’s well worth it.
I was really excited when I first got this tea because honey is pretty much my favourite food. So while it’s not exactly healthy to eat a jar of honey I figured this would be a great substitute. And considering the smell of sweet honey goodness along with something floral is so potent…I couldn’t say no c: Side-note, this review is extremely biased as I’m obsessed with sweet things and anything I can associate warm, lazy days with. Also, fyi, this is the tea I chose to get when I returned DT’s Toasted Walnut green tea. I have a review on that number if you’re interested.
When steeping, the aroma it gives off is the same but with more of a body. It’s so strongly sweet it fills up my suite with its smell, which is great! I like it when my place smells cute without nasty plug-in fresheners or cheap scented candles.
The colour actually looks like a nice dark amber honey. This is the tea I appreciate most when it comes to colour. Just gorgeous. As for taste….holy cow, no need to add sweetener here! While it doesn’t taste like the honey I’m used to (local naturally harvested stuff) it does have a lovely honey nectar quality to it. It’s sweet in the best ways possible – without being sickly or have the need to add unhealthy sweet stuff. I also taste floral, tangy, woodsy notes which adds to the feeling to being in a warm field with wild flowers and buzzing bees 8D As for the mate, which is suppose to be a big part of this tea….I can’t taste it. Or maybe I can but I’m just confusing it with the other flavours. I dunno, I’ve only have straight mate once so my palate isn’t that great when it comes to it. But the mate isn’t useless! This tea is my go-to tea on mornings when I have to go to work. It does a nice and gentle job of waking me up. Also it just makes me happy c: Very important to me considering I’m just the worst person ever if I have to work morning! Yep.
I must say though, this tea is so gross if it cools down too much. I think it’s the lemon myrtle (makes it taste soapy and off). If this was properly made into an iced tea it would probably be fine…I must try this sometime c:
Otherwise, great tea – I lurves it!
This is a very aromatic tea. The dry leaves have the warm, comforting smell of honey, and, once brewed, the tea envelops you in an aroma of sweet honey and there is a pleasant aftertaste of chocolate/coffee. The flavour of honey becomes more intense the longer you sip. This would be a wonderful tea cappuccino, and I find it could use some milk froth on top to cut through the strong flavour of the mate. Overall, this tea has a wonderful aroma with a pleasant taste, and brews very well to a nice gold amber colour. I recommend brewing it in a clear glass or white cup to truly appreciate its colour.
This is so sweet and floral and lovely! It’s the only mate I can seem to drink of late, I think due to my late night study session mate binges while I was in university. The taste of the leaf itself, naked and without tasty additions to embellish it, just kind of makes me shudder now, even though it was a taste I always enjoyed.
This one, though. This is just pure tasty goodness in a cup. I first tried it iced in store, and I still prefer it this way over hot. once cooled, the mate flavour is less distinguishable, and instead all I taste is a delicious floral honey. The scent is so strong that it refuses to stop lingering in my davids iced tea mug, despite several washings and reuses.
This mate has got me wondering about the other mate blends that davids carries, and whether I’d like them. I think I’ll have to give them a try.
A boring, overly lemony flavor hot turns into a fantastic treat when you put some honey in it and pour it over ice. This is a summery blend I’m glad I tried, but not something I’m likely to keep around at all times.. the lemon flavor just comes through a bit too much.
