Taster’s Review:

I usually approach the tisanes from 52Teas with a certain amount of tired disinterest.  Not because I haven’t enjoyed the tisanes from 52Teas, but because that’s my general attitude when it comes to tisanes (and not just those from this company!)  I – quite simply – prefer blends with camellia sinensis in them.  That’s just me.

And even though I tend to find myself sort of bored with tisanes, I usually enjoy them once I get around to actually brewing them.

And that’s true of this Cinnamon Peach & Apricot Honeybush from 52Teas.  This is actually quite good, much better than I expected it to be.  The peach and apricot are a naturally delicious combination.  For example, I love peach cobbler, and I love apricot cobbler … but even better is a peach-apricot cobbler!  The two fruits just taste better together.

And this tisane – when served warm – tastes a little bit like a peach and apricot cobbler.  The naturally nutty, sweet notes of the honeybush offer a “crust” sort of flavor to the cup, while the cinnamon offers just the right touch of spice.

But where this tisane really shines is as an iced drink.  It is fruity and sweet, with just enough zesty cinnamon to offset that sweetness and give the cup some balance.  The nutty flavors of the honeybush seem to subdue as the tisane cools, and I taste mostly fruit and spice.  It’s a refreshing, tasty beverage that both my daughter and I enjoy.

This tisane doesn’t really need any sweetener to enhance it, but if you do decide you want a little extra sweetness to it, try adding a little brown sugar to it.  This really amplifies that peach-apricot cobbler taste I mentioned earlier.  And a splash of milk or cream will give it a really decadent, creamy flavor that is absolutely YUM!

So even though I started out kind of feeling lackadaisical about this tisane, it proved to be a really tasty treat.
