Before I start, thanks to JennyFur for this one!
Well. I’m sick. Not throw-up sick, but sore throat just want to chill in bed sick. I decided to opt for some tea. I was sick earlier this week and got some earl grey and that didn’t help at all :( I saw this and the “honey” and “vanilla” caught my eye. Also, it looked small enough to be able to be steeped in my Aladdin travel mug. Perfect!
I steeped 1.5 tsp in 12 oz of water for the recommended time and temp of 5 mins @ 212. Gotta let it cool a bit first :P
Well, there is a ton of debris in my cup. I don’t blame the tea, it was nearing the end of the bag. I’ll just make sure to leave a few sips left so I don’t drink up that debris. This brewed such a pretty dark amber, like a thick honey (fits the name :) ). Time to drink! Mmmmm, light and smooth, good for my throat. It tastes good too. A tad on the weaker side, though. This may be going on my reorder list! We’ll see
As I finish this, I am starting to get mixed feelings. There is a taste in this tea that just doesn’t hit the spot. Despite that, I like this tea because it is smooth and light enough that it doesn’t irritate my throat. Maybe I’ll get a different flavor honeybush. I like apricot jam so maybe I’ll get a sample size of the honeybush apricot.
Overall, I enjoyed this one because it was good on my throat. However, there was a flavor that didn’t seem right. I’ll try another flavor of honeybush and see if that “fixes” the problem. I have enough left for another cup so I will maybe have that tomorrow if my bad throat persists.
