This is our Tea of the Week for June 17 – and it’s what’s in my cold-brewed pitcher at the moment. I like this one as an iced tea – but I think this one is better served hot. Served hot, I taste more of the cinnamon which is still a rather subtle flavor when hot – but when iced, it’s much softer.
The star of this tea is the nutty flavor and it ties in well with the natural nutty tones of the honeybush. The banana comes through as an undertone. The cinnamon is just enough to cut through some of the sweeter nutty flavors. It works well together and it does make a refreshingly different iced tea.
