Leaf Type: Honeybush
Where to Buy: 52Teas
Oh, and this week’s amazing tea? How about a honeybush with freeze-dried orange and pineapple bits and organic pineapple and orange flavors? I think it’s a nice refreshing tea for the start of spring.
Learn more about this tisane here.
Orange Pineapple Honeybush: it almost sounds like a breakfast juice or a smoothie rather than a tisane, doesn’t it? And when it’s served cold, it almost tastes like a smoothie or a fruit juice.
The orange and pineapple are sweet and tangy, and after I take a sip, my taste buds seem to perk up and take notice of the bright fruit flavors. I find that the orange and pineapple seem pretty even, with more orange notes coming forward during the beginning of the sip and more pineapple emerging toward the finish and into the aftertaste.
I don’t taste a lot of honeybush and I don’t really mind that because I’d rather taste the orange and pineapple versus the honeybush anyway. But, I do taste some of the nutty, honey-sweet notes of honeybush. These notes are really quite subtle compared to the fruit flavors though.
An enjoyable cuppa. I like this one better iced, though, because it’s a really refreshing flavor combination. When served hot, I found that this does have a soothing quality to it, like something I’d like to drink if I were feeling a little under the weather.
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!
