252 Tasting Notes
I finally got to try this tea. I hate licorice most the time. Especially black jelly beans. So this wasn’t a tea I was super excited to try. It has star anise in it, which I like.
It was nice for what it is. It probably would of been nicer iced. It was nice white tea. I only enjoy of star anise in other teas, where it’s blended with other flavors. Or in Thai tea.
I got this from a friend I went to school with. I opened the bag, and it smelled like bowl of tom kha kai. I LOVE that soup, could seriously eat it everyday. So I am already very excited to brew this. I did what Jillian recommend, but brewed in 1 1/2C 2%milk, 1/2 C cream, and and 1/2 water. I simmered it for 3 minutes. I would even brewed it longer. I sweetened with sugar and a little honey.
It has a little Fruit Loop like taste to it, too .Very yummy. Wonderful blend of flavors with lemongrass, coconut, ginger, cinnamon. Wow, best blended chai I have had, seriously.
If you are a fan of Thai food, this tea is for you. I will have to buy more…
True to it’s name with real apple flavoring. Their flavored senchas are really tasty, this is the second one I have had from them. I like the pineapple flavored better, since I love pineapples more than apples. I have had other apple teas where they are more granny smith, this one is more sweet, like a gala or even red delicious. This is the best apple tea I have yet. It’s juicy like. Very nicely done.
If I loved apples, this would be my tea. I really would love to try a coconut or passionfruit tea from them, if they do expand their flavors.
Thank you Shinobicha for a taste of this. :)
I first drank it iced with cream and sugar The cream and sugar wasn’t needed, and actually made it dull to me. I prefer this tea naked. This tea has a nice creamyiness to it on its own
I can get a hint of each flavor, the chocolate comes out nicely the most. I would liked more vanilla and strawberry. Still, wonderful iced.
Ok, I don’t have a Valentine, I got myself the Valentine sampler for myself, that’s ok, right? Actually, I got two of them! I started off with this tea. I’ve been wanting a way to try 52 teas, but not buy the entire 2 oz bag. So this deal was perfect! This sampler should stay, since it’s a great way to try teas without forking for a whole pack! Now I see why others say this place could hurt your bank account.
I love my chardonnays buttery. And I love the buttery tea of certain green and oolong teas. But this tea has the actual taste of butter! Love it! I can’t eat bread anymore, but this tea allows me to still have it in a way. 52teas is my answer for my gluten cravings, yay!
I made it was cream and sugar, but was great naked, too. I love the small hint of toastiness. Raisin was nicely there, and I am not always a fan of raisins. I would of liked more cinnamon, but I’ll probably add more when I brew it next. I wonder how this tea would taste if made with houjicha, though it’s great the way it is.
I bought this after receiving a gift card for William Sonoma. I have had this tea on my shopping list since I first joined steepster. And I finally cracked it open. The smell that came out was amazing. Smells of strawberries, freshly baked chocolate cake, deep vanilla, and some floral. What a perfect Valentine’s Day tea! :)
The brew wasn’t as strong as it smelled. Still a lovely black tea, very enchanting. With the name Marco Polo, I was thinking more spices in the tea. I love the ending taste of the tea, that has to be the flowers. This is a very original flavor. I just wish it was more affordable.
I haven’t had pu-erh loose yet, just from Numi. This tea needs to grow on you, it seems. I am with Cofftea were I was nervous to try it. I kept all the Golden Moon samples I wasn’t sure of for last. I brewed it in 1/2 milk and 1/2 water for 4 minutes. I could drink this again, but I wouldn’t buy it.
Thank you LiberTea for sending me some of this chai. It is a lighter chai, I like the almond background. I would loved more almond to it! The green tea base was hard to taste. The blend of spice were different and nice. I brewed it in 1/2 milk and 1/2 water, and later added sugar and honey. Overall, a nice chai tea.
