Honeybush (Bushmen's Brew) from Numi Organic Tea

Style: Honeybush – Region: South Africa

This actually reminded me a lot of black tea, which was surprising. I actually tasted a little bitterness, though I'm not sure where that came from as there is no caffeine in this tea.

If a caffeine free latte sounds good to you, this tea is pretty solid. It wasn't quite what I was expecting, but it wasn't bad.

Aug. 7th, 2014

The aroma of the dry leaves is woody, sweet, and a little bit sour. It reminds me a bit of sour cherries and melons with a touch of dried bamboo wood and hay

The taste is woody and caramel sweet at first, this fades to a nice dried fruit sourness, again the idea of sour cherries pops to my mind. Honeybush is very mu...

If it weren't for the honey I used to sweeten this tea, it would taste like hot leaves. Literally all you are buying is mildly-honey-flavored leaves.

I tried this one evening since it is a caffeine-free Numi option. It is not a true tea, but a tisane of a shrub variety related to rooibos. Now I really love rooibos, but this, to me, was even better, and I am definitely going to buy more, I liked it that much!

Here is a robust, comforting, and revitalizing liquor ...

I'm not passionate about this tea. It was mild and pleasant, but I'm not sure I'd buy it again. Overall, I love this company. They have great teas.

Organic Honeybush Herbal Tea from Stash Tea

Style: Honeybush – Region: ?????

57 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 31st, 2011

Aroma strongly peppery, much more so than a typical honeybush. Only slightly fruity. Very flavorful: a rich flavor with some bite, more like black tea, but with a smoother aftertaste. Mild, earthy finish.

Relatively simple and staightforward, but pleasing. Above-average for the quality I'd expect from a teabag.

Very fruity, but not in an overwhelmingly sweet way. The aroma has a hint of floral and citrusy qualities, and less of the peppery quality that Upton's BA28 has. Very full-bodied. Interestingly, the color of the liquor is slightly lighter than other honeybushes. Pleasantly sweet aftertaste.

By far the best honey...

This tea has an ineffable something I find difficult to articulate. Blossomy, subtly sweet, yet complex in flavor. Would love to drink more.

The dry leaves have a fruitier aroma than the brewed tea, which is almost totally devoid of fruitiness, and is more earthy and slightly spicy. Tones of black pepper in the aroma.

Very full-bodied. Aftertaste is a bit flat. Not terribly complex in the aroma, but still enjoyable. I prefer Adagio's honeybush, which...

Honeybush from Adagio Teas

Style: Honeybush – Region: South Africa

63 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 30th, 2009

Very sweet and fruity; this is without a doubt the sweetest and fruitiest honeybush I've ever tried. Almost candy-like, with an aroma like dried fruit. Less of the earthy or straw-like tones that I was expected.

A bit light and thin-bodied, however. Less rich than other honeybush I've tried.

I'm still not sure...

I find this tea very hard to describe in words.

The aroma of this tea is very similar to that of regular (fermented) honeybush, although perhaps a bit lighter: it is warm and rich, similar to Rooibos but less grassy. The flavor has some crispness but not much bitterness. There's little sourness in the initial flav...
