528 tasting notes

Damn you, 52teas! Why do you have to keep making such intriguing blends?! We purchased airfare and accommodations for our European honeymoon this October, so our bank account is hurting. I should not be buying tea!!! But I just couldn’t resist this one!

…and the new Pink Lemonade Iced Tea…

…and some more Lime Jello Iced Tea…

…I guess I got a little carried away there. Shh, don’t tell the husband! :P

The dry leaf aroma is strongly ginger. Like ginger overload. Like sticking my nose in a spice container of ground ginger. The brewed tea aroma is still very gingery but also a bit weird. The tea taste is surprisingly light. Ginger is the main note followed by brown sugar and something cake-like.

I couldn’t tell you if this has a coffee flavor or not. I feel like maybe I can taste coffee, but then the taste could be imagined because I expect to taste it from the name. This is called Gingerbread Coffeecake on the Zoomdweebie website, but the package has “coffee” crossed out and “tea” written in. So, is it Gingerbread Coffeecake or Gingerbread Teacake? I don’t know, but either way it’s definitely yummy!

There’s not much of an aftertaste at first, but it builds the more I sip it. I decided to add a tiny bit of sweetener halfway through the cup. Mmm, now the spice really pops and the cake is even more apparent! This is delicious! It is heavily ginger and heavily tasty. ;)

It’s supposed to be a gingerbread coffeecake blend. I just despise coffee and don’t know why they have to call it coffeecake and not teacake.

lol, agreed!

OMGsrsly

Coffeecake is just a cake to be eaten with coffee. There’s generally no coffee in it, in my experience. :) If I make one, I tend to call it teacake.

Really? The one time I had coffeecake, it had swirls of coffee-flavored cake in it.

Entering the sweet blissful world of tea aromas!

Having discovered this website at the end of July 2011, I’m so excited to share my tea adventures with all of you! I grew up with my grandmother serving Twining’s English Breakfast with cream and sugar.

But on a trip to Seattle in 2010, I stumbled into a Chinese teashop and tried my first oolong tea. I was forever changed! I embarked on a startling new love for green and white teas.

With a world of teas to discover, I was inspired to keep a tea journal to record my thoughts and new favorites. Let’s get brewing!


My ratings are completely subjective and 100% my opinion. All ratings are given in relation to each other (ie. teas are rated in the order of my enjoyment of them). Therefore, my ratings will constantly change as I try more teas.


I love swapping!!! If you see something in my cupboard you’d like to try, just send me a message. If you’d like to trade, anything on my shopping list will do or feel free to send something else entirely. I’m willing to try almost anything (although I’m not really a fan of honeybush, red rooibos, pu’erh, Lapsang Souchong, & banana-flavored teas).
