I think that this was one of my first (if not the first) honeybush iced tea that I tried from SBT. Since then I’ve tried several others and have really come around to embrace the iced honeybush teas.
This one is yummy. Very refreshing. Not exactly what I would have expected to say about a tea that is “cinnamon roll” flavored. The honeybush works well with these flavors. The natural nutty tones as well as the sweetness of the honeybush lends a sort of bready/doughy flavor that enhances the “pastry” flavor and the butter notes of the flavoring elevate that even more.
The cinnamon is sweet, not too spicy cinnamon. It doesn’t taste like a candied cinnamon. It’s more like the stuff you’d sprinkle on your morning toast (or … like what you’d taste in a cinnamon roll.) There isn’t a heavy “icing” flavor to this, instead, I get a light creamy vanilla tone. It’s more like a “light” version of a cinnamon roll, not like the ones you’ll get in the mall that are over-slathered with the icing.
My daughters really enjoyed this one too.
