Last of my mini tin. The smell is sooooo good, that just smelling it is relaxing. Smooth tasting, not strong on the aftertaste. It’s ok but I wouldn’t reorder.

Firefly! This was my first order from 52 teas :)
I tried it soon after I got it and didn’t like it, there was a sharp sort of chemically smell and I didn’t like the taste at all but after reading some, I decided to let the bag sit a bit and try again later.
So on this second try, the weird smell has gone away and the taste is a nice roasted, toasted rice and hint of chocolate. It tastes like what I imagined it to be from the description so I’m very pleased.
I thought I would really like this one, but somehow the mintyness is putting me off…
It really does have a pleasant mint chocolate aftertaste but drinking the hot tea, I get more watery mint than I do any chocolate. I guess I just wished the chocolate was more prominent.
Sugar makes the fruit stand out and I do like this one much better than the candied mango chai that was my first try with this gift set.
I got this in my 12 HoliDays off Tea set and my family seems to like it. It has a festive red/pink color when steeped, it smells strongly of fruit. The ingredient list also says it has hibiscus and you can really tell, on the first steep the tartness made me think I’d accidentally done the Merry Cranberry tea. No need for sugar in this herbal infusion.
Another Hawaiian flavored tea bag from Lupicia. At first when I opened the packet and took out the sachet, there looked like there wasn’t enough in there. Lo and behold… after steeping the bag was full, the leaves really plumped up and unfolded nicely. The tea has a light fruity scent both before and after steeping. The taste is mildly fruity too, it is nice in this tea I get the tea taste and its not over powered by fruit. It doesn’t need sugar to make it taste good but with sugar added, the fruitiness comes out more. When I looked at the dry bag, it looked like there was a couple konpeito candy pieces too so added sugar is not necessary.

Oddly, with milk and sugar it tasted better and I could taste more spices than just the mango. Of course it could just be also that im getting to the bottom of the sample and thats why the flavor is different too. Still is not something I would buy more of though.
I did this one iced… Made a fruity juice. Not bad.
This one smells super fruity all throughout. The mango aftertaste is pretty strong. I don’t really get any chai taste at all, the tea is very sweet and juicelike. I don’t really like it much…
Yay milk & sugar… It’s been such a long day.
Found some tea I had forgotten about, one small sampler pack of “Hawaiian Flavored” tea from Lupicia… Haha, it just makes me laugh a little, right under the name “ANUENUE” it says that. It’s an individually wrapped tea bag in a foil type packaging, so even though I’m pretty sure it’s over a year old the smell was awesomely strong. It has an intense fruity smell kind of like candy. 2 steepings, the first one was very sweet, fruity and the second one more green tea flavor came out than fruitiness. I like this one, too bad the store is a plane-ride away.
My tea with breakfast today, complete with cream and sugar. I think I’ve only got enough for one more cupful, so I’m pleased to have actually liked it enough to go through a whole bag. I have so much tea right now that I won’t be re-ordering it anytime soon but maybe later in the year. I think there was more of the peppery taste today, not sure if its because I’m at the last of the bag… But it was good.
The smell of this tea is more appealing than the actual taste of this one so far. I had gotten the tin and there does not appear to be any jelly beans to be found.
