In some of Frank’s blends, the black tea is too astringent or bitter, but that isn’t the case with this tea … it is moderately astringent but I don’t get any bitterness. It’s quite pleasant.

The blueberry is a mild flavor, a bit more mild than I would have liked. The marshmallow is also quite mild. BUT… as the tea cools, the flavors pop. The tea that is in my mug has dropped in temperature (warm, but not hot), and now I can really taste the blueberry and marshmallow.

It would be better, I think, with some vanilla in it. This might give it the sweet, “confection-like” nature of the cereal by which it was inspired.

Overall, not my favorite from 52Teas, but it is certainly enjoyable.

PS: Frank, if you’re reading this – and I know that you are! – next year, how about Count Chocula? That’s my favorite Monster Cereal. And… please put real marshmallows in it instead of marshmallow root. :)

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
