Drink: Peach Apricot Honey Bush
From: Anna Marie's Teas
Price: $5.90 / 2 oz.
Since there are a limited number of tea shops around the KC area, I tend to visit shops frequently to try new blends. The ladies at Anna Marie's in Liberty are friendly and informed about all things tea. During my last visit, I was fortunate enough to snag some tea samples to try. This organic and caffeine-free green honey bush tea is mixed with natural pieces of orange peel, apricot, peach, candied pineapple, candied papaya, and rose blossom leaves.
The drink: sweet, refreshing, fruity.
Honeybush is an herbal tea, similar to rooibos, but sweeter. It makes for a strong flavor of fruitiness and natural sweetness. You won't need to add any sugar or simple syrup to this tea. Even when I mixed 1 part tea to 3 parts water, it had plenty of flavor and sweetness: perfect for hot summer days.
