 (34 reviews)

type: herbal

origin: south africa rooibos

caffeine: no-caffeine

price level: $$$$

Our Honeybush Vanilla combines the rich, warm dark sugar aroma of vanilla with the honeyed aroma and gentle earthy quality of Honeybush herb from South Africa. Soft, sweet and very 'beany' vanilla fragrance (like warm sugar cookies made with fresh vanilla beans). A comforting, caffeine free treat. Steep at 212°F for 5 minutes

      This was a delicious tea! I loved the vanilla! I also love honeybush. Gentle and earthy are great descriptions.

      This tea provides a great base for blending with fruity, nutty, or spicy teas. It adds a subtle sweetness and creaminess that elevates any tea to dessert status.

      This was the first time I ever had honeybush. (Disclaimer: I cannot stand its cousin rooibos.) This just had a nasty, chemically, plastic-vanilla taste to it that made me gag. I chucked it after a couple sips. Yuk.

      The adagio vanilla is very delicious! This is a simple tea, but if you like vanilla, you'll love this. I sometimes mix this with the honeybush chocolate and the honeybush hazelnut to make a nutella tea, and it's delicious! Good for blending with other flavors if you want to add some vanilla. Great simple tea.

      Vanilla is such a comfortable flavor it's easy to pair up with anything and strong enough to go solo. Makes a nice entrée for those new to tea as well - a familiar friend in a big new world of flavor.

    • 

      Simple, warm, comforting, DELICIOUS! Such a nice familiar combination. Great as a nightcap or with a dessert/meal.

      I got this tea as a sample and I enjoyed it. The flavors were very subtle and really liked it. I’d get it again

      A nice mellow vanilla to go with the sweetness of honeybush. Steeped at 212F for 5min, second steep for 6min.

      This tastes like plain honeybush tea to me. I don't actually taste any vanilla. So, while it is fine, I was hoping for a stronger creamy, vanilla vibe.

      The perfect vanilla honeybush. Great on its own and divine with a bit of mint.

      This used to be my favorite honeybush tea until it was unseated by Honeybush Apricot, but this one is still really good. Very good for late night sipping where you don't want to disrupt your sleep schedule, which is usually when I turn to this blend.

      This is a pretty good tea for when you just want tea and not any particular flavor. It's warm and smooth, but the taste is subtle.

    • 

      Adagio excels so well in other flavor categories, but everything that I've tried with vanilla has been a huge miss, unfortunately.

    • 

      The honeybush seems to be either just weak or old. Vanilla flavor has an artificial taste and aroma to it. Not terrible, but somehow off.

    • 

      My whole family really liked this one when it came in the communitea box.

    • 

      I love vanilla, and this one is nice for an herbal tea because the honeybush doesn’t compete with the vanilla flavor as much as the rooibos does in Adagio’s rooibos vanilla tea. (The rooibos vanilla is a nice tea too, though).

      Horrible. Tastes like artificial vanilla. Blech!!!

    • 

      Pretty good plain sweet tea. Light vanilla flavor that isn’t overpowering. Would be delicious paired with chocolate chip cookies or a vanilla ice cream.

    • 

      This was a yummy tea. The vanilla came though and paired well with the honeybush. A nice herbal pic.

    • 

      I could definitely taste the vanilla in this tea, but I also thought it tasted like raisins. I couldn't really enjoy it due to personal preferences.

    • 

      Yummy vanilla rooibos/caffeine free tea. Works great as a creamy element added to any tea

      Love vanilla, so this was great for me. The taste is similar to vanilla yogurt.

      I love the sweetness of honeybush tea, but I didn't get a lot of vanilla taste.

    • 

      I’ve never met a honeybush tea I didn’t like - Adagio’s are so lovely, too. The vanilla is a nice pairing with honeybush!

    • 

      Great rooibos tea. Very creamy. I like to add this to my chocolate tea to make it more delicious

    • 

      This smells delicious in the bag, like sweet vanilla cake or cookies. The vanilla flavor once brewed isn't as strong as it could be, but I do really like mixing this one with other flavors or having it on it's own with a bit of cream and brown sugar.

    • 

      It's ok, but to me the vanilla very light. I wanted to use it to add some vanilla to blends but the flavor isn't strong enough to come through.

    • 

      This was my very first tea I ever tried, so it will always hold a special place in my heart. The flavors are fantastic, its great on its own, with a little milk and honey, or a spash of brandy for those winter nights. This is my go - to after dinner tea.

      The vanilla tastes a bit artificial. Not terr able, but a bit off tasting.

      The earthy smoothness of the Honeybush works beautifully with the vanilla

    • 

      Not as bad as the rooibos vanilla. The honeybush works much better with the vanilla flavoring. Still a little artificial tasting

    • 

      Very good tea. No need for sweetener or cream. I really like it.

      This is my morning tea, I drink a cup of this every day. It's earthly, floral, and refreshing enough to wake me up

      I liked Rooibos vanilla until I tried the honeybush vanilla. This is an earthier more robust flavor that meshes well with my own personal blends. This is one I keep on hand at all times, both for its own sake as well as for blending.
