A sample from KittyLovesTea! This is another one I never thought I’d have the opportunity to try, but it just goes to show that you never really know. I love Frank’s older honeybush blends — they just seem to have something about them that I miss in more recent creations. Not sure what it is exactly — I’ll have to put some more thought into that and try and work it out! Anyway, this smells pretty bland while brewing, but really comes alive to taste. I added a splash of milk to try and augment the buttery, bakey flavours, and I think it worked pretty well in that respect. I was also trying to tone down the base a bit, although possibly I didn’t need to because I’m not tasting much honeybush at all really. It’s pretty subtle, and gladly. I’m getting orange, but not cranberry so much. It just about starts to come out as it cools, but it’s almost undetectable. There’s a definite “scone” taste, though, and that’s what I was really looking for. Combined with the orange, it’s a pretty heavenly tea flavour as far as I’m concerned. I might try it without milk later on to see how that works out. I’m definitely looking forward to a second cup after a difficult week! It’s truly gorgeous stuff. Thanks again to KittyLovesTea for sharing this with me.
