From The Jasmine Pearl Tea Merchants

Very similar to tea in body and flavor, our Organic Rooibos is also full of antioxidants and minerals, but does not contain any caffeine! This mixture is called Honey Cup because there is honey flavoring and bee pollen blended with the herb. No sweetener is added (or needed). One of our best sellers!

Ingredients:
*Rooibos (Red Bush), Natural Honey Flavor, and Bee Pollen.

I knew of this merchant for years – knew they were a local wholesaler – but aside from their Cranberry Sencha (which I had at a coffee shop) I hadn’t sampled many of their wares. Until tonight. They finally had an actual teashop open, and allowed for tastings at the counter. I had eyed this particular rooibos blend for years, mainly for the inclusion of honeycomb. I tried it, liked it and bought some. But I wondered how it would stand up to MY way of brewing.

I steeped it for six instead of the recommended five. That and I added a glob of Greek honey to the mix. It probably didn’t need it due to the honeycomb and honey flavoring, but I was going for broke. And I’ll tell ya what…it was a good garnish. The cup was sweet, creamy, and nutty. The rooibos base with the added elements actually takes on the attributes of its cousin – honeybush. Which also makes me wonder, why they didn’t use honeybush as a base instead…perhaps they didn’t want to go for a trifecta. I dunno.

All said, a damn good drink.
