1) Pre-Taste: Got this from a friend (just because) and it smells great. I’ve also never tried honeybush (to my knowledge). I sweetened with honey as directed. No cream though.
2) First Sip: Sweet, peppery, and I’m getting the ginger for sure. The oneybush doesn’t taste tea-like just yet.
3) Second Thought: It’s odd, but it’s ‘red’ I taste. The honey blends right in, but I guess the red is the honeybush. It’s a very similar taste to rooibos really. Only a hint of the citrus comes through.
4) Afterward: I’d like to try this honey sweetened a bit more and iced. But it’s not bad at all. I think I just need to do more with it. And steep it for longer.

Flavors: Ginger, Pepper, Red Fruits, Rooibos

Boiling 4 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 10 OZ / 295 ML

Travelling the world, one sip at a time.

A guide to my brewing:
At home and on the go, I typically infuse in a DavidsTea Travel Mug (16 oz) or use DavidsTea drawstring filters. I’m hoping to use home infusers and proper teapots soon (especially since I got a new kettle).

A guide to my ratings:
0-19 – Didn’t like the tea/would tell others to avoid.
20-40 – Didn’t like the tea, but would not avoid it.
41-60 – On the fence about the tea. Might try again.
61-70 – Would drink again, but wouldn’t stock it.
71-80 – Will try again and might recommend.
81-90 – A good tea. Would recommend and stock.
91-100 – A favorite/perfect tea. Highly recommend..
What I’m looking for: advice on infusers, teapots, and recommendations on teas I’ve never tried. Hoping to study new teas to me: whites, floral & food infusions, flowering, cake pu’erh, guayusa, honeybush, yerba maté. Basically not your basic black (my comfort zone).
About my Cupboard:
I’m using the cupboard to keep note of my current tea stock and add to it accordingly when shopping or tasting. If I added every tea I’ve ever had to my cupboard it wouldn’t be an honest representation of me as a tea drinker.
