The initial scent of this tea is of a very strong peach. Once steeped, the color is a red-hued honey. This is my first time having honeybush, so I’m not sure what to look for in taste, but I don’t think it matters since the most dominant flavor is peach. It also has some tropical undertones from the pineapple and the apricot, but mostly I taste peach, which is fantastic in my book. I drank this hot, but I could see myself enjoying it iced as well.
