Costco Vonbee Honey Citron & Ginger Tea Review

It’s the kind of thing that you look at the gigantic jar and think sweet, I can eat alllllll of this. Myself. Now where can I hide it so my kids and husband don’t find it? Now, should I hoard the whole jar? OK, that’s another conversation. But if you’re wondering if the Costco Vonbee Honey, Citron & Ginger Tea Base tastes good? YES! It’s too good! I’ll eat it on a spoon, I’ll eat it on the moon, I’d even eat it with a baboon…on a train, in the rain… Haha, you hear me, right?

I actually wouldn’t mind if it was a smidge less sweet, but make no mistakes, I’m NOT complaining, it’s delish! I would say its most similar to a marmalade, if I were to try to compare it to something. Great citrust flavor, the ginger is such a great complement. Costco fans rave about it’s medicinal powers for colds and flu – I am not sure about that – but it does make a delicious cup of tea, which your kids will probably want to drink when they don’t feel well. So there’s that!

What I Don’t Like…Costco Vonbee Honey Citron & Ginger Tea Review

Vonbee has recently changed their ingredient list – it no longer has high fructose corn syrup! We used to have beef with that, but we’re happy to see it’s been updated. Make no mistake this isn’t “health food” lol, but we definitely prefer the new ingredient panel! Thank you Vonbee!

  1. I’ve used it as hot and cold tea, and I think I’ll try it to glaze some chicken. Ooooh, with vanilla ice cream!

    1. GLAZE CHICKEN!! Wow, I hadn’t even thought of that but it will be great – now that you said that, I’m also thinking ham glaze! Brilliant, thank you SO MUCH for sharing I love those ideas!!

    1. Wow, that’s a big price difference!! Thank you for sharing – I’ve updated my post to reflect the variation in pricing in different regions. Thanks again for sharing!

  2. I noticed the ingredients listed now doesn’t include the corn syrup. Wonder if they removed it?

    1. Thank you for letting me know! I’ll have to look next time I see it and update my post! Is it now just made with sugar?

  3. This is garbage. Just sugary syrup with lemon slices in it. I was hoping for a good lemon/ginger tea, but you can’t even taste the ginger. Worst tea ever.

  4. This is absolute garbage. I bought it hoping it would be a good lemon/ginger tea. Was wrong. No ginger taste at all, just sugary syrup with lemon slices in it. A horrible tea.

  5. I live in Niagara Falls, Canada. Only once did I see the Ginger-Honey-Lemon Tea Mixture in a Costco and bought it. I love it but……………like with so many other things, it’s there at one time and than it’s gone!!! When I went back to get more, they had the Apple-Honey-Cinnamon tea, also from VonBee. I bought that one (which is not available anymore either). The Ginger is my favorite, I really wish, Costco would stock it again in Canada.

    1. Yes, the Vonbee Honey Citron is definitely a fan favorite! We don’t have it at my Costco, but there is a Costco nearby that always has it – just mentioning in case you have multiple nearby Costco stores, it’s possible another store has it. Fingers crossed it’s back soon!

    1. It’s in some stores now. We have it in Hawthorne, CA (but don’t have it at the two other nearby stores). You can ask at the front of the store to see if it’s carried in your store or near you – and ask them to carry it. Just give them the item number, and they can look it up.

  6. I absolutely love this tea. I was vomiting and couldn’t get my stomach to calm but this Vonbee honey ginger and cítron was delicious and did calm my tummy immediately. LOVE IT ❤️
