Thumbs up!"The flavor profile to my tastebuds was dominated by the green rooibos and chamomile, which come together quite nicely. The interesting thing is that this actually does taste like it was prepared with a drizzle of honey."

bostonlemonhoneychamomile"Organic certified South African Green Rooibos, is blended with organic chamomile, organic lemon peel, organic osmanthus flowers and organic honey flavor for a relaxing and fragrant tea that is both rich in antioxidants and naturally caffeine-free." ---Boston Tea Company website.

Since it is almost 9:00 p.m. as I sit down to enjoy some tea and write a review, I know that it is in my best interests to pick a caffeine-free option. Since nothing amongst my samples was calling my name and imploring me to review it, I decided on this night-time blend from Boston Tea Company. Boston Tea Company is a company that I am not unfamiliar with at this point as I have had the opportunity to try a number of their blends through Teaviews.

My sample package contains the ingredients described above and smells surprisingly like honey! I don't think that I have come across another blend with an organic honey flavor... In fact, I am not sure if it is a 'flavoring' or if they actually squirted some honey into the mix. I scooped the blend liberally when preparing this and infused for 5 min with water brought to a full boil. I did find that I enjoyed this blend best when it had an opportunity to cool for a couple of min. The flavor profile to my tastebuds was dominated by the green rooibos and chamomile, which come together quite nicely. The interesting thing is that this actually does taste like it was prepared with a drizzle of honey. The honey flavor is also a dominate player in the blend but it shows up more in the finish and aftertaste. Oddly, the honey flavor seems less sweet than when you use actual honey suggesting that they have used a honey flavoring. While you could certainly drizzle a bit of actual honey into the blend if you wanted it to coat your throat when sick or something, the flavor itself is strong enough that an addition is not really necessary. The lemon peel and osmanthus flowers are a bit lost in the blend though I suspect that they contribute something to the blend that might be missed if they were not included.

Overall, this is a tasty and well-done blend from Boston Tea Company. If I were placing an order with them, this is definitely one that I would place in my shopping cart. If you are a lover of green rooibos, chamomile and honey, then this is one that I would recommend to you. I thought that the honey flavor added that something unique to the blend that makes this one worth consideration.
