Leaf Type: Honeybush
Where to Buy: 52Teas
As cool as a cucumber and as crazy as a kiwi: I’d say that about sums up 52teas. With a twist of lime on the side. Here’s our caffeine-free African honeybush blended with freeze-dried kiwi and natural and organic flavors. A cool, caffeine-free treat. Well, cool if you make iced tea of it, I suppose.

The last time I checked, there were still quite a few pouches of this tea available. I’m really quite surprised by this … and maybe it’s just me, but, when I see a tea called “Cucumber Kiwi” … that’s something I MUST TRY! It’s one of those flavors you aren’t going to come across very often, and I love trying the unusual flavors.
But there is another reason for my surprise, too. I mean, this is a honeybush blend from 52Teas, and I have not found a tea company that offers better flavored honeybush blends than 52Teas. Some of their other blends may be iffy, but, most (if not all) of the honeybush blends have been stellar. One only need try a blend like Coconut Cheesecake Honeybush or Chocolate Malt Honeybush to know what I’m talking about here.
And while this one might not be quite as good as the Chocolate Malt or Coconut Cheesecake, it is REALLY good. The flavor is sweet and fruity, but there is just a hint of tartness in there too to keep it from being too cloying.
It has a very intriguing balance of flavors, it’s one of those teas that keeps me sipping just to try to nail down what I’m tasting. One sip, I’ll notice the kiwi as the strongest flavor … the next, I’ll taste a strong burst of citrus-y flavor. In the next sip, I’ll notice the cool taste of cucumber. It all comes together in such a pleasing way and I really like that.
