I have nicknamed this “spermy vegetable tea,” because the leaves are in the shape of sperm and the tea smells like vegetables (broccoli, I think).

Fortunately, this tastes better than it smells. The taste was actually just fine; it’s very light and soft (no spices, no bitterness). But the scent that reaches my nose as I’m sipping the tea is a turn-off; it would taste much better without the smell.

I don’t have a huge stash of non-caffeinated teas so it’s nice to have one more to choose from, but the other ones I have are much better so I doubt I’ll use this much. I anticipate I’ll have at least another cup or two in the future when I need something mellow, but otherwise this is not a get-again tea.

(Tea from silentrequiem. Thanks!)

I like your nickname for this. HA.
I think my parents must have dumped a ton of sugar into honeysuckle tea because I remember really liking this as a child.

I have fond memories of drinking flower teas at Chinese restaurants when we went out to eat, so I was happy to find some honeysuckle tea. This was a disappointment, and I’m not sure if it’s because the quality of the tea is just bad, or if my parents just doctored the pot with tons of sugar when I was a kid (possibly both).

I did not love this tea. First, when I opened the tin, the dried honeysuckle smelled almost moldy, which was an instant turn off. I sucked it up and steeped a couple pinches (hard to measure this tea) of the flower buds. The flavor was extremely light. It wasn’t unpleasant, thankfully – I wouldn’t have been surprised given the smell of the dried tea. But was just much lighter then I expected.

Thinking about it, the honeysuckle buds looked immature – they weren’t even close to fully opened, and I seem to remember the tea we used to drink having mature buds.
