3907 Tasting Notes
A really refreshing lemon-flavored black tea. I like that it is more a sweet lemon note than a tart one. No puckering! Sort of reminiscent of a lemon-curd kind of taste. YUM!
The black tea base is even-tempered and somewhat mellow. Probably a Ceylon.
I cold brewed this first to make a half-gallon of iced tea, and then resteeped the bag hot-brewed. It was yummy, but I was hoping for a bit more watermelon flavor from it. It is tasty, but, not watermelon-y enough for me. I’m not sure if that’s because I cold-brewed it or not.
I can still taste the watermelon, but, I just want more. (I like watermelon!)
The tea is a nice, brisk, refreshing iced tea … and I’m really glad I tried it!
A really impressive rooibos blend. The blueberry is intense here.
The sweet, nutty flavor of the rooibos creates a sort of pancake-y kind of flavor, and accents the blueberry notes well. Very good iced or hot.

A delightful rose scented tea. The green tea tastes sweet and lush, with vegetative notes that are somewhere between grassy and vegetable, leaning a bit more toward grassy than vegetable.
The rose is very pleasant and floral. Not the right tea for someone who isn’t a fan of rose, but, if you like it … you should try this one!
This is one of the very best Genmaicha teas I’ve ever tasted.
It tastes exceptionally fresh and vibrant and sweet. A delightful roasty-toasty-ness to it. And something that’s a little different from other genmaicha – in addition to the Sencha tea and toasted/popped rice, this also has “rice cracker balls” in it, and this … just makes it taste better!
I love this stuff!
This one is really yummy. I’ve been wanting to try these teas for quite a while so when Harney offered free shipping a few months back, I grabbed a small tin of each of the Ambessa teas.
This one is deliciously chocolate-y and it’s a dark chocolate note. The nutty tones are sweet and accent the dark chocolate flavor very nicely. There are some caramel undertones and a hint of apricot in this blend. The apricot came around about mid-cup. A wonderfully complex and delicious blend.
The only thing I don’t like about this line from Harney is that it’s only available in sachets. I want loose leaf!
I enjoyed this tea. I was a bit apprehensive about it at first because there was hibiscus in it and I just don’t think hibiscus belongs in an Earl Grey tea, you know what I’m saying? But, the hibiscus contributes next to nothing to the flavor (thankfully!) and maybe only a hint of texture and color.
I tasted primarily black tea, bergamot and rose. And that’s what I wanted from this blend.

My last backlog for this evening. Hopefully, I’ll find some time tomorrow to add some more.
The dry leaf of this tea smells amazing. Definitely a worthy addition to the Cucumber “collection” that 52Teas has. (I still think about the Cucumber Strawberry.)
A very refreshing, delicious, unique blend. Those are words I use often when describing 52Teas blends … and for good reason. No, I don’t love everything they create, but, most of the blends, if nothing else, I really appreciate the uniqueness of them because you aren’t going to find teas like them anywhere.
This was an exceptionally memorable tea. I remember being so joyful about this tea that I even texted my daughter just to remind her that I love tea. She thought that maybe my younger daughter had gotten a hold of my phone and started sending out random texts. (My love of tea in this house tends to be a joke, because they don’t think anyone on earth loves tea as much.)
This tea is an example of WHY I love tea. It is amazing. Remember Dawn? From Simple Leaf? Yeah … this one reminds me of Dawn. I’m not saying it tastes exactly like that … but it is SO GOOD that it reminds me of Dawn which was also SO GOOD.

You really, really should try this tea.
YUM! Chocolate Covered Strawberries. Did I already say YUM? Because this tea is YUM!
The chocolate … well, if you know me, you know I always want more chocolate flavor. And that is true here. I want more chocolate. But, it’s a nice representation of chocolate flavor in this blend.
The strawberry is sweet and has a hint of tartness. It is a flavorful strawberry flavor that tastes authentic.
