Great Canadian Travelling Tea Box

This one is pretty nice. As the name suggests, this has a nice light honey flavor and aroma. I don’t find the rooibos overpowering but I happen to like the taste of it. It’s not something I would keep around, but it was fun to try! I added a touch of sweetener to my mug to help bring out the flavor.

This one is honey rooibos. I feel like there is something weird in here – like just a hint of mint in the back. (Could be cross contamination). If that weird wasn’t there I think I would like this. The rooibos is nice and smooth, it’s sweet – nice.

Another offering from the Traveling Teabox. This one actually reminds me quite a bit of honeybush, despite having a purely rooibos base. Indeed I’m not getting any of the usual woody flavour which I can’t say I miss. The sweetness is smooth and subtle and quite natural-tasting.

I forgot about this one while it was steeping last night, and left it for around 7/8 minutes. When I got back to the kitchen, the whole room smelled of mead. Rich honey with a floral edge. The taste was stronger than previous cups have been, so obviously a good long brew is the key if a deeper taste is required. I’ve found this to be the case with various rooibos blends, although sometimes it just makes the rooibos more prominent. Not here; if anything, the rooibos fades into the background underneath the strength of the honey.

I can see myself drinking this either way depending on my mood. Last night I needed comforting as I’d got myself completely stressed about work, and the soothing taste of honey was just the thing to ensure I calmed down a bit and at least got a reasonable night’s sleep. I also like the lightness of flavour that can be found when this is brewed for maybe 4/5 minutes rather than 7/8.

This is a very versatile tea, excellent for those who like honey. Winnie the Pooh would be proud!

I picked up quite a bit of this during BrewTEAlly Sweet‘s stash sale. I had high hopes, but it’s turned out to be pretty meh. The base is fine – just a nice woody rooibos. The flavoring is bad. It smells and tastes extremely artificial. I’ve had unflavored teas with more realistic honey notes.

This tea is drinkable, but it’s not actively enjoyable. I used it mostly as a bedtime tea because I tend to fall asleep before finishing my cup and I never felt wasteful letting this one go cold. It doesn’t actually taste any better cold, fyi.

Oh well. Sipdown.

Great Canadian TTB

I got really excited when I saw this because I had an amazing honey rooibos tea a little while back. This does not compare to that though. It is nice but it has a much stronger rooibos flavor and though it is sweet, I am not sure if I would immediately recognize it as “honey”. Nonetheless, I am glad I got to try it so thank you AshleyElizabeth for including it in the box.

Thank you ashleyelizabeth for this tea.

This Rooibos smells very thick and treacle rather than honey but it still has that nice sweetness I was expecting. Putting that aside it at least smells natural and sweet enough that it may tone down the Rooibos.

A long 8-9 minute steep later and it smells much sweeter and honeyed, purer than the raw scent. It’s a little softer too so it is honey rather than treacle now.

Flavour is light, sweet and wonderfully honeyed. It tastes as pure as it smells and covers the Rooibos very nicely, so there are no chemical or strange flavours from the Rooibos at all (as there sometimes can be). It’s not overly sweet but at a nice level for myself and it leaves a lovely honey after taste.

Very happy I got to try this one, it’s very nice and I’m lucky to have enough to last me a while. :) I imagine it would be nice iced too, will have to try that.
