I had no idea that honeysuckle is so good for you! I read up on it a bit to figure out the best way to steep it, and apparently it has all sorts of health benefits. We used to pick honeysuckle flowers all the time as kids, but I don’t see them much anymore. I think my dad may have one in the woods near his house. I’ll have to look next time I’m there to see if I might pick and dry a few.
The flavor is not anything like I expected. I expected sweet and nectar-like, like I have experienced in the past with the fresh flowers. This is vegetal. In fact, it smells exactly like lima beans after steeping. The taste is bitter and also dusty. Just completely different than anything else I’ve tasted!
I’m certainly glad I was able to try this and also learn that honeysuckle can be steeped as a tisane. I’ll be interested to see if other companies might have honeysuckle that tastes different. Teasenz has one that looks really beautiful. I wouldn’t mind trying that one.
Flavors: Bitter, Dust, Lima Beans, Vegetal
