Have you tried brew it in hot water?

Arby

Yes, I just don’t enjoy vegetal teas. I don’t think honeysuckle buds are something I will be brewing again.

TeaVivre

It’s okay, maybe your tastebud just can’t totally enjoy its taste!

Arby

I’d like to learn to enjoy it, or at least appreciate it more. That’s why I’m trying some more green teas right now.

Bio

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
