It’s the season
What’s the best fruit of summer? Hmmm, could it be the papaya? It’s just so luscious and tropical and undeniably delicious. Especially with a citrusy splash of lime and a smooth base of wild honeybush – a mineral-rich herbal tea that tastes a bit like rooibos, only sweeter. Ice it and you’ll find that soaring temperatures, burning sun and crazy humidity are really very pleasant. Caffeine-free

I didn’t want to drink this after I steeped it and smelled it. I may have over-steeped it.

I don’t want any more of it after my first sip.

Swoooooosh. What else is in my cupboard?


I applaud you for dumping it. Life’s too short for 11-rated tea!


Agreed, if you don’t like it, dump it and move on to something else.


Yeah I made some Butiki Peppermint Patty and Tealux Chocolate Monkey. Between those two I’ll get that awful taste out of my mouth.

:) I’ll take that first sip, but I’m with you guys – life’s too short for bad tea.

A) I didn’t realize how incredibly poorly rated this tea is.
B) I didn’t realize that this was a honeybush tea.
C) I didn’t realize that there was lime flavouring in here.

This could be interesting! I requested this as a sample in a DavidsTea order from a while back, and hadn’t yet gotten around to trying it. The aroma is vaguely fruity and a bit limey-citrusy. Nothing objectionable so far!

Given an average rating of 53, the flavour here is far better than I was expecting. Does it taste like papaya? Not particularly, to me anyways. It tastes like a generically fruit-flavoured honeybush, with perhaps a limey aftertaste. Although I dislike the medicinal flavour of red rooibos, I usually enjoy red honeybush, and this tea is no exception! That said, there is absolutely nothing special about this tea. I have less than a cup’s worth left in my sample packet, and will use it up, but certainly wouldn’t seek more.

So this was backlog.Decided I needed to drink it up.
Smells kind of like dried or stale fruit snacks.Not unpleasant but not Papaya-esque yet.

I heaped the tea and over I do with all DT herbals..I need full flavor…I will settle for nothing less.

I am afraid that the Rooibos(red honey bush) will kick all other flavors to the a bad significant other..taking all the sheets with them and leaving the other bum out and cold.

Once brewed smells fresher but still the same.I don’t smell fruit bursting out but I try all at least’s a strength and a curse.

as for taste…..well…………….tastes like honeybush..and a tiny fruity nudge not worth mentioning really.I oversteeped and doubled the amount and the fruit is barely there..

Tastes like a plain Rooibos..will trade to lindairvine ..because she likes the Rooibos.

Not much to say the numbers will say it all.

This was ok, sweet enough cold-brewed but maybe not enough papaya for me.

I grabbed this one yesterday when the Summer Collection came out. I couldn’t really smell it in the tin, but I decided to get it anyways. It doesn’t smell great steeped, just dark and woodsy. Almost like a citronella candle. It tastes almost the same as it smells. I can’t pick up any lime in here, which I was hoping for. Not sure if I like this one.

I forgot I had this sample today until I pulled out the collection to photograph. It’s probably three years old… uh oh… haha either way, here we go!

Well, I kind of forgot about this tea and now it’s warm…

The papaya isn’t too bad but it’s very mild and it’s woody. I don’t hate it, but I’m not really over the moon about it. Meh…

Meh. For some reason I taste soap. That’s the only thing I can really say about it unfortunately.

I received this as a sample from my online order. I had this tea hot but then forgot about it and now its lukewarm. The taste reminds of when I was a kid and I had fruit loops for breakfast, but in a more weaker diulted format…. Maybe its the lime in it. Anyways, the tea isn’t horrible but its definitely not something I would buy a bag of.
