255 Tasting Notes
I LOVE black currant in teas. It’s my favorite in black. So this being paired with white tea intrigued me. I got it with the V-Day sampler.
At first, I didn’t know what to think. I had to kind of just sit back, and enjoy the tea. I would of loved more black currant! But with every review I write with black currant flavored teas, that’s my complaint, so nothing new. It is very delicately flavored. Stood up for 4 rebrews.
This reminds me of another tea called Brazilian Delight, which I prefer to this one. It just has more fruit, and the black currant was more pronounced. It’s sold by Todd and Holland, but I googled the ingredients and saw other places selling the exact tea.
I like this tea, but I would of enjoyed more fruit. Though more black currant would probably hide the actual tea flavor, which it nice and light. Very nice iced.
This is my very first experience with silver needle. Well, I am a fan now! This ranks up there with having REAL sencha. And that changed everything for me.
I received this sample from Doulton. This tea is quite amazing. I got 4 rebrews from it, adding 1-2 minutes to each brew. And it’s great both iced and hot. It’s just so perfect, it has such an elegance to it. For being such a light brew, it produces such a loud flavor.
Thank you Doulton for this tea. It is quite amazing, and I am now addicted. I want to marry this tea.
I got this via tea swap with my friend. I can’t tolerate mate plain, but with other flavors, I can. And rooibos, too? I like! The blend is quite tasty and original from other chai teas. It’s like a tropical chai. I bet some coconut milk would be tasty in this. I took it with sugar and cream. I really loved the blend of spices.
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.
