Creamy Honey Oolong – Embrew Tea

I will start off this review by saying that I am not the biggest honey fan in the world and I was not at all excited to review this tea. But, who knows I may be surprised.

Now the tea was definitely creamy not an ounce of bitterness to be had. Now the only thing that I didn’t like about this tea was, you guessed it, the honey. Now I will say this, the main reason why I don’t like honey is because of the sickly sweet taste it has. And that taste is overpowered when it comes to grocery store honey so I knew that my taste buds were aware of the low-quality honey it has had before.  Now this tea was a more downplayed sweetness to where the honey flavor was. In other words, this tea had a nice and soft honey flavor.

Now to the specifics of this tea. It is kind of pricey for $15.95 for a 10 tea bags, so about $1.60 per cup of tea. But I think the price is somewhat justified for on their product page (found here) the honey that is used is 100% real honey granules and it seems that they use only the finest oolong that can be found.

Now, will I ever purchase this for myself?

Probably not. But I definitely know a couple of people who would love this tea. For it is a great tea for honey lovers for it is not too much honey. It seems like the perfect cup to have when you need a pick me up and it would be fantastic when you are under the weather with just a drop of lemon.

See you for the next cuppa!

  1. Have you tried using maple syrup? I started to not be able to stand the taste of honey in my tea for some odd reason. So I started using m/s & now could never go back to honey. I now use m/s in coffee only, unless the tea I’m drinking is bitter. A little bit of m/s goes a long way.

    1. Oh thank you, Marie, I am actually surprised that I have not thought of that before! I will definitely try that when I get some syrup next time, hopefully, I can find the fresh stuff!
