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
