First steep of 5 min was too long; 2 min works best for me. Not getting the lemon or the meringue. The prominent flavours are cardamom and clove. I look forward to experimenting with this tea. For anyone craving lemon-cardamom flavours, I recommend Lemon Cardamom Chun Mee and Sun and Cloud Mist, both 52teas’ blends.

This licorice mate is delightfully not a single-note anise tea. It smells and tastes like black licorice candy which matches the smoky quality of roasted mate. In fact, the dark flavour is akin to drip coffee especially sipped scalding hot. With no added sugar which is my preference, this tea is dessert-like. I don’t really notice mint but there is a cooling effect that could be menthol. The strength of flavour carries through the second cup which is good because mate, in of itself, survives multiple steeps.

This moment, right now, I can imagine licking at a gob of salty crunchy peanut butter off a spoon. The cheesecake element is more subtle but this is the closest I have imagined tasting a real flavour within a dessert tea without detecting an alcohol-like artificial essence.

A perfect dessert tea without calories. I get the milky creamy essence of this amazing Ti Quan Yin. I am bathing my face in this steamy goodness. Thank you Kyle for sharing this tea with me.
