I ordered the reblend of this tea back when it was reblended because this was one of the more memorable teas that I’ve tried from 52Teas, and it’s been a while so I wanted to taste more of the Dreamsicle goodness.
Unfortunately, the reblend just doesn’t seem to live up to the memory of the original. I’m not sure if that’s because the memory has somehow become exaggerated with the passage of time or because the reblend just … isn’t quite as good.
There’s a lot of orange flavor to this, but, the vanilla notes seem to be a bit too subdued. That said, the Darjeeling notes are quite nice. Crisp, wine-like, fruity notes, and wood tones.
Overall, it’s good, but it just isn’t as good as I remember the original being.
