Just got my honeybush samples... one vanilla and one apricot. I brewed the apricot and was surprised to find I like it very well. It was much sweeter than I'd expected, and as you said, nothing like Rooibos (which for me is a good thing).
I drank about half of it, and it got a bit too sweet, so I mixed the 2nd half with some leftover formosa oolong and it made a nice blend. I'm one of those people who usually sweetens tea, and this needed no sweetener at all.
Interesting taste... won't be something I'll drink every day, but its nice to have a caffeine free option in my cabinet. I'm looking forward to trying it iced, and I think it will make a nice blender with other teas that need a boost.
Thanks for the recommendation!
