Okay so I’ve now had this tea three times. I waited awhile to review it as I thought maybe this is the kinda tea blend that will grow on me. Sadly no it’s not growing on me I do enjoy the smell of the dry leaf but once steeped I don’t get raisin I get fig or plum? On my last sip I do get a little crisp toasty flavor so while I don’t get the butter flavor which maybe a good thing. I don’t totally hate this tea I can see while people do enjoy this tea and I think that the flavors are there I just prefer a stronger range of flavors in my tea. Unless I’m having a green or white tea of course. I’ll rate this one high up there for being spot on flavor wise but it is not something I personally would reorder.

My hubby and son say this tea smells just like Honduran tamales. Which would make since since one of the ingredients in a Honduran tamale is raisins. I know your thinking raisins in a tamale(?) LOL all I can say is it’s a tropical thing! You’d have to taste to understand.

I had this a few times as well before I could figure it out. It did grow on me though. I wish it was stronger too =(. That’s my only complaint about 52teas. I feel that their teas would definitely be better as an afternoon tea instead of an early morning one.

I know I’ve tried the mojito, chocomate, and the one above and none of them are strong enough. I am hoping the I will like their Pina Colada Honeybush that AmazonV and I have arranged to swap! :)

True mojito, chocomate and pina colada are all strong enough. It’s the black flavored teas that aren’t. Though coconut cream pie was pretty strong. It’s weird… some flavors are stronger than other. Where’s the consistency!

The PinaColada one is strong enough and almost doesn’t need any sugar at all!

Yea! I can’t wait to try it! I never use sugar or milk unless it’s a chai and I don’t drink chai that much. I do add sugar to my iced tea though so that my hubby and son will drink it they would probably gag if their beverage did not contain sugar LOL.

New to the world of hot tea, being born and raised in Texas we typically only drink lipton black tea, sweetened and iced of course! I recently discovered the world of hot tea / flavored teas and am thoroughly enjoying my new little world of tea!
