Brewed in my “take to work” thermos. I am getting a buttery aroma that I didn’t even get from the Buttery Shortbread Cookies tea, and a sweet raspberry smell, but once again, that peppery scent from the honeybush. This has black tea, green rooibos, and honeybush… are all of those really necessary?
I am getting a bit of a buttery note and a raspberry jam vibe from the flavor, so I definitely see what they are going for. Maybe a very subtle nuttiness, too. And I am tasting the pepper, though a bit lighter this time than in some of their other blends (probably from the honeybush being cut so much). But the base feels a bit thin. Even drinking it, I’m confused what the black tea, green rooibos, and honeybush together are really contributing. I can’t even taste the black tea, and the fact it was labeled as a black tea is why I chose to brew it as my “work” cuppa (caffeine!) It just… feels like an herbal tisane to me, if that makes sense?
I like the flavor on this one, I just think the base likely needs some further tweaking.
