Leaf Type: Honeybush
Where to Buy: 52Teas
This week we have caffeine-free honeybush blended with ginger, cinnamon and organic flavors, including cheesecake. I figure I don’t have to say much more than that, but it is AWESOME. Get some today.

Mmm! Tasty! I was confident that I’d like this Ginger Pumpkin Cheesecake Honeybush Blend from 52Teas, but, wow! This tisane has exceeded my expectations. It’s really yummy.
The fragrance of the dry leaf is really enjoyable – I can smell the ginger and the cinnamon, with notes of pumpkin. The nutty aroma of the honeybush complements the other notes to create a very delicious scent that made my mouth water when I first opened the pouch.
Every component in this blend marries very harmoniously together. The ginger is not quite as strong as I expected given the name of the tisane. It stands out, but it doesn’t come off as super peppery or spicy the way ginger often does, especially when it is a key ingredient in the tea blend like it is with this blend. Instead, Frank (the chief Zoomdweebie at 52Teas) added just enough ginger to add a “zing” to the cup without allowing it to overpower the balance of flavors.
The cinnamon comes through nicely, but again, this is not overly spiced. Everything is pleasantly balanced so that I can also taste the notes of cheesecake – tangy and creamy! – and even the more delicate notes of pumpkin. The nutty, sweet tones of the honeybush complete the set of flavors.
This is really good served warm as a latte (warm up a little milk and add a splash of it to your cup, you’re in for a treat!) and it is surprisingly delicious iced too. A very refreshing take on some favorite autumnal flavors!
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!
