drank SBT: Mango Peach by 52teas
811 tasting notes

Made this one as per instructions. Steeped for 3 minutes in approx. 2 cups boiling water, then filled up the pitcher with cold water and refrigerated over night.

On first sip, it tastes like a strong but flat black tea with peach flavour. I added about 2 TBSP of white sugar. I felt the sugar made it sweeter but it also made the peach flavour less. The peach is what I taste at the beginning of the sip, and I taste mango at then end of the sip. In the middle, there is a bit of mingling of those flavours with the black tea.

Overall, not my favourite SBT but it is still good. It is better with sweetener added. I think it seems to be getting better the longer it sits.

Edit: Resteeped using same directions as above. I actually think this one is better on the resteep. The black base is very light, but I am getting more peach and mango flavour. The peach is more dominate than the mango. It tastes light and creamy.

Bio

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.
