696 Tasting Notes
This tea is fascinating. I just received it in the mail yesterday so perhaps I should’ve waited a bit longer to try it? I also don’t think I’ve come even close to perfecting being able to taste the flavours through the honeybush base, but I’m working on it.
I’m getting a subtle creaminess from the marshmallow root and mostly a strawberry taste aside from that. I’m not completely sure how I feel about the taste. I think I’ll let it sit out a few more days before I try again.
Yum. I got this on a whim with my first ever 52Teas order and I’m quite pleased with it. My newfound love of marshmallow root compelled me to add this to my cart.
The lime taste is really lime jello to perfection. I love the addition of marshmallow root, just because I love marshmallow root haha. It’s really a lovely tea.
I can’t say I’ve ever even heard of lime jello salad, much less tried it, but I’m enjoying the tea regardless.
Update: The second steep of this is still quite tasty. I’m very happy with this tea.
I saw hibiscus in the ingredient list, but went ahead and picked up 10g of this anyway, just to try.
I’m happy to say the tea does not steep a deep pink-red colour that normally happens with hibiscus and it smells very passionfruit-y. The scent is reminding me of something fond I had when I was little, but I can’t quite put my finger on what that is.
Initial sips are all passionfruit. Yum! And YAY, no hibiscus overwhelming flavour! There is a very subtle tartness that I’m enjoying. Overall, this tea is really well done.
I can imagine this would be good cold too, but usually even when teas are good cold, I still prefer them hot haha.
Update: The second steep of this has slightly less flavour, but still lovely.
Oh I love Fringe. I miss it dearly now that it’s gone.
Thanks to Jackie T for sending me this to try out.
I’m getting the strawberry flavour alongside the honeybush, and it could totally be mind over matter, but this tea is reminding me of Walter. Sigh. Fond memories.
I definitely need to get more honeybush teas under my belt. I’m enjoying all the ones I’ve tried thus far, but I sometimes find it difficult to taste the flavour amidst the strong honeybush base.
My fiance has the initital steep of Coconut Grove this morning, and I’m having the resteep now.
This tea is delicious. I love coconut, so I’m not surprised. The coconut and white tea clearly come through. It’s lovely.
A while ago I tried David’s straight white tea Bai Hao Yin Zhen and added shredded coconut from my cupboard and it tastes exactly the same. I’ll probably just save myself some money and do it that way :) Highly recommend.
This is delicious! The mint is very subtle, but clearly there. The accompanying ingredients make a great mix for this tea. I can taste the pineapple and the coconut. It’s nice that none of the ingredients are overwhelming. This tea works so well, and I can’t wait to try it chilled.
The best part was definitely my fiance, who HATES mint, tasted a sip of mine instead of his and exclaimed “This is my new staple! We need to get tins of it, now!” haha.
Yay I got the summer teas today!
Okay, so this one smells and tastes just like Mango Madness. The ingredients are almost identical as well. It’s a yummy tea, and I just put the second steep in the fridge because I think it will be much better chilled.
As far as mango taste, I’m not so sure. It has almost a carbonated feel to it. Regardless, it’s a tasty tea.
Thanks Aimee Popovacki for parting with a few cups of this for me :)
This is a lovely tea. Both the raspberry and mint are present. Neither are overwhelming and compliment one another nicely. I’m chilling a second steep in the fridge to try cold, but the hot tea is awesome. I’m sure it can only get better.
Update May 9/13: The second steep chilled is great, and I also had the third steep hot last night and that worked out wonderfully also!
Thanks teapot1 for sending me this :)
I don’t have a glass teapot, or any teapot for that matter. I make each cup separately in my mug so unfortunately I can’t appreciate the full beauty of this treasure.
I let it steep for 6 minutes, despite my intuition saying not to, just because it wasn’t opening! It still barely opened at all, just the very tips started to curl. Perhaps the resteep will yield better results in that area.
First few sips, I’m really not getting much flavour at all. Perhaps it needs to fully open to get the flavour out? That would make sense. Hmm. Perhaps I’ll put the infuser back in.
I let it steep for close to ten more minutes and still essentially no flavour. How unfortunate.
