With sweet honeybush as the foundation, they’ve layered on freeze-dried peaches and apricots along with cinnamon chips to create a blend that’s just as good to smell as it is to drink. (But you probably just want to drink it.)
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!
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.
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!
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.
