Smooth & rich honey-vanilla infusion

Reading the other reviews, I feel like a lot of people have missed the point of this tea, mislead by the "honey" part of honeybush. Though sweeter than a rooibos, it is not a sweet tea by itself, especially when using real vanilla beans rather than an artificial extract. It's a wonderful disgestive tea on its own and steadies a lot of other teas heavy on spice. Try it with the Matevana and Peppermint and two scoops of rock cane sugar - like drinking a cookie, a recommended concoction for migraines. Honeybush is also good for pregnant/lactating and menopausal women, in addition to its advertised benefits as an expectorant (clearing the lungs). Do not brew this longer than 5-6 minutes. That works for fruity herbals, but honeybush is actual plant leaves. I hope the negative reviewers give this a second chance.

I should preface this by saying that I don't like anything very sweet and love unflavored teas, so perhaps that's part of why I do not love this tea. I love vanilla tea, but I hardly tasted the vanilla in this. The honey was overpowering and too sweet for me, and it had a very long sweet aftertaste. The smell is wonderful though. After trying it alone, I mixed it with Silver Needle white tea. That was better as it toned down the sweetness and honey. Next I'll try mixing it with a bolder unflavored tea like black or oolong. Overall, this tea is okay. If you are looking for a tea with a strong vanilla taste then this is not it.

    Comments about Teavana Honeybush Vanilla Herbal Tea:

    I was hoping this would be a very sweet dessert-like tea, but it's not too sweet even with plenty of rock sugar, I'm sure some would appreciate this about it. It does have a very strong honey flavor which I like. Over all not bad but not my favorite.

      Comments about Teavana Honeybush Vanilla Herbal Tea:

      Background: I am a college kid who hates coffee and hates plain black tea, but I still need caffeine. Therefore I found some black tea I can afford, but it tastes more bitter than other black so I added 4oz of this to 8oz of the cheap black tea and now it tastes divine, I can drink it all day. The sweetness and the strength of this tea overpowers the negative qualities of the cheap tea and really didn't add in that much cost per cup.

      Very good for mixing.

        This tea is pretty good on its own, but li like to drink it with a splash of half and half and just a little bit of sweetener. It is pretty rich and it is a very good soothing/calming tea. I love it!!!

          Comments about Teavana Honeybush Vanilla Herbal Tea:

          I find the aroma of this tea overpoweringly sweet and would have probably avoided it for that alone, except that the flavor of this tea is perfect for my hormonal sweet cravings! The tea flavor alone (unsweetened) is sweet enough for me, though I agree with those who stated that adding a little sweetener brings out the vanilla tones. This tea makes a pretty amazing latte, and is horrible iced. I also enjoy adding a splash of dark spiced rum to this tea on its own or in a latte.

          I definitely do not drink this tea on a regular basis, as I prefer richer flavors. Be careful to not steep this tea too long (less is definitely more!) as it drastically changes the flavor of the tea from a nice light warmth to a thick and cloying tea with a bitter aftertaste.

            I first tried this tea unsweetened and wasn't an immediate fan. Tried again with the rock sugar and now this is one of my very favourite teas. The sugar teases out the notes of vanilla and makes this a very nice, comforting tea; perfect for a cold day and a good book.

              I love tea, and drink it mainly with my family. We had a baby shower for my sister and this was one of three teas that I set out from teavanna. Strawberry lemonade/blueberry bliss iced tea, chocolate mint flavored and honeybush vanilla which all three were big hits. So was the passion fruit, blackberry, and perfectly pear white tea. My high suggestion for it is put a little creamer in and a tade sweetener of choice and sit back and enjoy... This is a desert tea if anything or great for parties... such a creamy rich flavor to it!

              Comments about Teavana Honeybush Vanilla Herbal Tea:

              I love white and green tea but they don't love me. I get heartburn/acid reflux from "regular" tea. So while checking out the herbals at a local Teavana store, the tea lady let me smell the honeybush vanilla. Blech! It smelled way too sweet and really turned me off. But many of the herbals have other ingredients that I shouldn't have because of health reasons. She insisted that I try a cup of the honeybush, however I wanted it and I reluctantly said, "Okay."
              Oh my, it was so surprisingly good! It is not bitter, like other teas taste to me, and it tastes like what my local natural foods store smells like...in a good way. I took some home that day and it is the only thing I drink now beside water. I mostly drink mine iced, but on a chilly night will have it hot. It is not so sweet that I don't add a little sweetner. I use a small amount of natural sugar and it is just perfect!
              I have recommended this herbal tea to my friends that drink herbals. I even gave them some for Christmas.
