honeybush – The Year of Tea

Category: honeybush

Episode 038: Black Coconut

Surprise! It’s another tea from Just Add Honey! I get these in my semi-monthly CSA pack. Their black coconut blend has a lot of great ingredients — black tea, honeybush (for sweetness), cocoa, coconut…and apple?

Even with that odd addition, this is a pretty satisfying cup for morning or after-drinner drinking. Take the coconut flavor to the next level by sweetening this with palm sugar and adding coconut milk! Dessert in a glass!

Episode 063: Pina Colada Honeybush

Here’s another fun and tasty blend from Zoomdweebie’s — pina colada honeybush. Naturally sweet honeybush is paired with dried coconut and huge dried pineapple chunks to create a really great dessert-type cup of tea.

Steeping time is a bit long (7-10 minutes!) but it’s almost impossible to overbrew this. Sweeten this with honey to bring out the true flavor of the tea! Hot or iced, this tea is fantastic.

Episode 073: Lemon Drop Cooler

Zoomdweebie’s Lemon Drop Cooler is like an all-in-one Uptown (also known as an Arnold Palmer). This honeybush blend is packed with lemon flavor — lemon peel, lemon verbena, lemon balm, lemongrass, and lemon myrtle. That’s a whole lotta lemon.

The flavor really shines when this tea is iced. Not that it’s bad hot, mind you! Give it a try both ways and see what you like!

Episode 078: Georgia Peaches

Today I’m trying Just Add Honey’s Georgia Peaches — a fitting name for the blend since they’re located here in Georgia! A black tea and honeybush blend is used as the base, and peaches, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves are added.

It’s definitely more bitter than peachy, and I think that’s because of the clove and black tea combination. The peach flavor is heightened with ginger, so I think trying this with a bit of milk or cream might cancel out that astringency.

Overall…it’s just not that peachy.
