I absolutely loved this Honeybush with so much flavor of orange and mandarin it hardly needs any sweetener at all. It is a wonderfully soothing late night tea.

A blend of fragrant Honeybush and sweet, juicy fruit flavours.
Honeybush, from the Cape in South Africa, has a sweet, aromatic richness that brings herbal notes to the zestiness of orange and sweet mandarin in this amber coloured infusion. This deliciously balanced combination is naturally caffeine free and has no added sugar, so it’s ideal for drinking when you want a little taste of Africa.

I grew up drinking Twinings tea, it’s what my mother always had in the house, and to this day I keep it on hand for guests. Whenever I see a different variety I like to try it out, they make an excellent bagged tea. If you like orange I would give this one a try, but I thought it was a bit bitter for my tastes.
I am very intrigued by the ingredient of African honeybush as I have run across it in a few teas that I have recently tried. It seems to add a pleasantly light sweetness. I love that the orange and mandarin notes sing in this tea with the same sweet/tartness that you get when eating the fruits themselves. I bought this tea to share with my sister-in-law the day we had planned to go to a hooka bar that she says has excellent teas. Unfortunately the hooka bar was closed, so we had to make our own fun. I bought this tea because the name sounded like something that you might find in a nice tea room. I would describe this tea as demure in all the right ways!
Bitter, bitter, bitter taste! To me, this tea has an unpleasant bitter aftertaste. The beginning, warm and orange, then bitter yuk! I had to add 2 stevia sweeteners! I try to taste the tea and not muddy it up with loads of milk or sweeteners. That said, some teas I enjoy doing milk and honey or stevia or agave. A fruit tea like this is generally not one of them. :(
