Summer-time is HERE! And it’s a great time to relax with an icy tumbler full of our latest Tea of the Week.
Here’s a blend of caffeine-free honeybush and fat freeze-dried strawberries with organic flavors of strawberry, rum, lemon and lime.
If an icy tumbler of this doesn’t put a smile on your lips, you might want to check your pulse.

Summertime is almost over. Even though it’s not quite autumn in these parts … another week or two and it will be! We’re already getting the crisper, cooler weather and even some rain! And I’m happy about that because autumn is my favorite time of year.
This Strawberry Daiquiri Flavored Honeybush from 52Teas is very summer-like with its fresh, juicy strawberry taste … and it’s letting me enjoy some of the best of what summer is about without having to endure the hot weather right now.
I taste a little bit of rum-like flavor to this. The strawberry is the strongest flavor, and that’s quite alright with this strawberry fan! The lemon and lime compliment the strawberry nicely – adding not too tart a taste to the cup … just a little something that really perks up the flavors and brightens the overall taste.
The nutty sweet notes of Honeybush are also discernible here, but I don’t taste a lot of Honeybush flavor here. It’s not completely masked by the other flavors … there’s just enough there to remind you that you’re drinking a honeybush tisane and not a warm Daiquiri. (Well, I’m drinking it warm … although it would be very delicious iced too! I think I’m going to have to brew some of this for my iced tea tomorrow!)
Another well-crafted blend from 52Teas.
And while I’ve got your attention, I wanted to tell you that the creator of 52Teas – Frank – is trying to re-open his tea bar in Wichita, Kansas … but he needs OUR help! Please consider visiting Indiegogo and donating to the cause! And … there are lots of different perks offered for donating, too!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
