Very floral notes. More than we were expecting. Sort of overpowering.

This is a very tasty green tea. I tried this at my school’s cafe, and wasn’t really sure what to expect, since RoT can be kind of hit-or-miss for me. While steeping, the tea smells very sweet and flowery, similar to my favorite Jasmine Green by Bigelow. This tea tastes a bit sweeter, though, and you really do taste the honey that gives it its name. Overall, I really liked it, and I am so glad I finally found it in a store near me, since school was the only place I could find where it was sold (besides online, since I didn’t want to pay for shipping), so I can now make it whenever I want to. A nice cup of tea to relax with for sure…no additives necessary! :)
Other than the Earl Grayer, this is the only of RoT’s flavored green teas that I can drink. While it’s nice enough, and the honey flavor pleasant, it isn’t something I bother to keep at home; just my go-to cup at Panera. It does hold up fairly well to a long steep, but some bitterness doesn’t bother me.
This smells and tastes very strongly of honey- an herby, delicious honey that I’d love to get in a skincare product. But I don’t like to drink the strong taste of honey particularly, so as soon as I smelled this, I knew I was in trouble. The green tea was overshadowed by the ginseng and honey. I did get a bit of an energy boost from this, but it meant that I felt a bit shaky and no more alert. I knew I wasn’t going to like this one going in- trying to make things taste like honey is never a great idea in my book.
Tea bag teas are usually not my thing but I thought I give it a try since the sample came with the brochure I ordered. The tea gave out a sweet smell of honey when I first opened and brewed it. However, I was not impressed with the way it tasted. While the smell of the honey was certainly dominate, I was not able to really taste much of it in tea itself. I was also expecting a certain sweet/bitter note from the Ginseng but I did not find any. The slight lingering after taste was a bit awkward/unfamiliar and somewhat unpleasant (perhaps I’m too use to the nice sweet after taste of Oolong teas). Overall, the aroma was nice but the tea was somewhat of a disappointment :-/
