Very sweet, very smooth. I’ve only mixed it with other teas so far and it blends really well with almost everything.

Indulge in dessert-inspired sweetness that brings out the wild honeybush and tames it into a creamy confection. The South African honeybush is grown in the wild and carries soft, clear honey tones when it’s blended with sweet vanilla beans. The result is a smooth, warm and friendly, creamy dessert tisane.

I wanted so much to drink a good vanilla tea today, so I made myself a cup of Honeybush vanilla. But yet, as I took the first sip, I remembered why I love/hate this tea….
It is a good tea if you’re looking for a sweet vanilla tea. But… I always finish my cup with a little “sickness” because I find it too sweet for me. The flavor is great, but the “honey” aftertaste is a little bit overwhelming. This is why I always struggle when I drink this tea: love the vanilla/hate the sweetness. Maybe if I blend it with something else the sugary taste will be more subtle.
Note: DO NOT add more sugar to this tea (unless you want to fell sick).
To be honest I think rooisbos is one of my least favorite tea types; not to say they’re all awful or anything, but I tend to dislike them more than the rest. That being said, I’m not particularly a huge fan of this tea when brewed by itself; somebody had mentioned honeybush giving a fairly soapy aftertaste, and I definitely agree with that. It does, however, serve me very well for mixing! I combine it with some dark spicy chais to sweeten em up!
One of my favorite teas from Teavana but not because I love the flavor by itself (it’s good but not something I gravitate toward.) I love it because it’s a magnificent blending tea. It adds the right amount of sweetness to any other tea, specifically when used iced. My favorite thing to blend with this is Teavana’s Sevenberry Sangria.
