drank Turtle Cheesecake by 52teas
944 tasting notes

Realized this had been sitting for a bit, and it’s almost gone anyway because I shared so much in swaps, so perhaps I’ll get to sipping it down this week.

Brewed at a really low temperature because I was also brewing a green at the same time, and it seems to have change little. It smells right, I definitely get caramel and a hint of chocolate in here, however I’m still missing cheesecake. Boo.

Still sounds absolutely delicious.

It’s… just okay. I had hoped for more out of it. Or maybe I’m just demanding! :)

I found myself saying that about a lot of 52teas blends, really…

Allie

Agreed. I find many of the 52teas blends lacking, this one included. I didn’t log it yet, because I thought it was by an error on my part.

Profile

Bio

Teaholic, with a leaning toward rooibos, green, puerh and white teas, although I’m trying some black tea again. Missing living near a tea shoppe that offers a lot of options; my only (within walking distance) choices are currently mall-bound. Still, I have a whole cupboard dedicated to tea.

In addition to loving tea, I’m a dating columnist, single mom, nerd, and avid knitter. I read way too much, type even more, and spend my ‘free’ time either running, swinging kettlebells, or hanging with friends.

I love tea swaps, and will gladly swap anything I have that I have enough of to share.

Allergies: Strawberries and all grains. I’m having a mild allergic reaction to both lavender and some roses in tea, and thus I’m avoiding these for now as well. I also avoid sugar and Splenda where possible.
