Stacy very kindly threw this in as an extra sample in my recent Butiki order, and I’m really glad she did. It’s not one I ever would’ve picked out for myself—I pretty much never drink soda and don’t think of myself as a root beer fan, although I loved it as a kid. And this really does taste just like root beer, just not sweet. It’s even sort of creamy, hence the float part. I tried this both hot and cold—I cold-steeped my leftover leaves—and, while hot root beer doesn’t sound great, I found this blend (surprisingly?) delicious either way. I don’t come across too many honeybush-based blends, but this one’s making me wish I did—it’s much smoother, far less woody, and maybe a bit sweeter than (red) rooibos.
