Really surprised that I haven’t written a note on this before. Finishing it up tonight with the fam, and with it the entire Adagio honeybush sampler. Yay for the sipdown.

As the flavored honeybushes went, this one was pretty good. The apricot flavor masked any woodiness, and worked really well with the natural honey to add some sweetness to the taste. The apricot is subtle, but present, which is nice. If it wasn’t subtle it would risk heading toward artificial. But what I like best about it is the mouthfeel. It’s very soft to the mouth, balmy almost, and really soothing to the sore place I’ve developed as a result of this virus.

I’m having a lot of fun introducing my sons, 7 and 9, to the decaffeinated infusions, and the older one professes to love this one. The younger one fell asleep before he could give it a try. ;-)

I love soothing teas when under the weather…hope it makes you feel better. I think involving kids with infusions is awesome! I started doing it with my 3 year old nephew and he’s fascinated with watching me prepare fruity blends, and he thinks blowing on it to make it cool down is hilarious :-)


Wow, 3 years old! Awesome! My kids had rather unrefined palates at 3 (see previous mac and cheese discussion). The older one was a functional vegetarian and really ate only cheese, mac and cheese, eggs and avocados for the longest time, which is odd because when pregnant with him I craved steak and hamburgers. But they’re both now to the point where they’re curious about tea which has made it quite fun. I’ll have to bring out some fruit blends and get them going on those.


Yes he’s so curious, and he always wants to drink whatever I’m having. He loves everything fruity so I brewed some Youthberry / Wild Orange Blossom Blend from Teavana (the only Teavana tea I keep now just for him) and he loved it! I always add maple syrup or honey in his cup though., so much healthier than KoolAid!
Lol at your kid’s functional vegetarianism :-)

Had a second cup, just as good as the 1st until my puppy stuck her nose rudely into my cup when I turned to answer the phone.


Aw, yay pets! I have a cat that likes tea and tries to sneak sips in and likes everything from sweet iced tea to Formosa Oolong. Silly thing.


Couldn’t be too mad at her. Gotta love their cuteness!


Puppies have a habit of doing obnoxious yet completely adorable things like that.

Quite a lovely, sweet tea. Perfect in the evening, when I can’t have caffeine.


Hey! Good to see ya! Haven’t seen you around here for a while!


Aw, thanks :) It’s hard juggling so many social sites – Steepster slipped under the radar for a while, but I’m going to try to update more regularly!


Yeah… I am very rarely on Facebook at all and my husband is trying to get me involved there with different games and such … I told my husband that Steepster is my Facebook. LOL

I added an extra scoop of chippies. Added an extra minute. Still tons of “dust” in the cup. There was a more prominent smell of apricot, and the first cup was a notch above meh, but just barely. Second steep and we’re back to flat out meh. Not gonna reorder. M

Smells fantastic. The fruit flavour is a little too mild. It goes great with the rooibos peach.

This was the first time I had ever tried a Honeybush tea, and I’m pretty impressed. The apricot was lightly sweet and not artificial-tasting at all. The fact that it doesn’t have caffeine is just an added bonus!

Love this tea. Nice mild honeybush with a vibrant apricot taste. Perfectly balanced, and you can’t oversteep it.

Thanks to carol who for sending me a sample of this! I enjoy Adagio’s apricot flavor; I’ve tried their apricot black tea also. Here, the flavor is bright and sweet, without being too overpowering. Plus it goes well with the peppery-sweet taste of the honeybush. I generally prefer honeybush over rooibos, and this is one of the better honeybush blends I’ve tried. (I haven’t tried many yet, but still!)

I got this sample for free with my Adagio order. All I had to do was share on Facebook, and since I changed the setting the “private”, no one even had to see it. Win/win! Dry tea looks like honeybush with yellow flower petals and a few dried fruit pieces. It smells very artificial – like apricot candy. Steeped 5 minutes.

The aroma is fairly ho-hum… Just honeybush and apricot candy. The taste is even more so. There’s not enough apricot flavor, even with added sugar. So it mostly tastes like peppery honeybush and a little fake apricot. No thanks. :P
