Freddy’s a little creepy, goofy, and nutty – kind of like this blend of Honeybush and Rooibos Flavors.

Over the past week or so, I’ve been trying to focus on some teas that could be considered “romantic” Valentine’s teas. While I don’t think that I’d want to kiss Mr. Krueger, this custom blend created by my SororiTea Sister, Jennifer aka TeaEqualsBliss, is a delicious alternative to going mouth-to-mouth with Freddy. It is a blend of Adagio’s honeybush orange, rooibos cinnamon apple, and rooibos almond.
While I am not always particularly fond of rooibos, I do like the combination of rooibos and honeybush together. Somehow, when blended together, the honeybush softens the tames funky tasting rooibos. The two taste better together than individually, in my opinion.
The orange flavor is the most distinct note in this cup, but it doesn’t overwhelm. It is complemented by the apple, which softens the tangy citrus notes, and lends a very smooth sweetness to the cup.
The background is nutty and has a hint of woody undertones. The nutty flavor is further accentuated by the almond flavor. While it is not a particularly strong note, the cinnamon gives the overall cup some interest and depth.
A tasty tisane that can be enjoyed any time of day!
