drank SBT: Neapolitan Ice Cream by 52teas
772 tasting notes

I never really was a Neapolitan ice cream kinda girl, I am a plain jane vanilla kinda girl. But I thought I would give this one a try. It sounded delicious. But this is not my most favorite SBT.

The initial smell on opening the package was of artificial chemical chocolate. But after a few minutes, once I took a step back and smelled, it did smell like Neapolitan ice cream, with the chocolate/strawberry/vanilla combo of flavours.

I brewed as per the directions on the package.

The initial taste was again of that artificial chemical chocolate. I added a few tsp of sugar, then it did have more of a Neapolitan taste. On initial sip, I get chocolate, and then immediately underneath that, I can taste strawberry. I had to wait a while before I got the slightest hint of vanilla. This iced tea reminds me of a cheaper Neapolitan ice cream that you buy in a box (not a pail), and its been in the freezer for a while.

Overall, it still makes a good iced tea. Just not my cup of tea.

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
