1422 Tasting Notes
This smells like coffee, has a whallop of rooibos, and tastes strongly of toffee and caramel – so basically, I need to avoid sending any of this to JustJames! :)
For anyone missing that trifecta however, I do strongly recommend this tea. There’s zero rooibos flavor, and just toffee caramel deliciousness. Huge thanks to Roswell Strange for reviewing it, just in time for me to order some along with my beloved Caramel Pu-erh.
This smelled an awful lot like rooibos out of the bag, and after steeping, which concerned me somewhat. I can still taste rooibos, which drops it down a few notches for me. I do get orange right off the bat, although it smells strongly of lemongrass to me out of the bag. I’m missing any chocolate anything, although perhaps I’m comparing this to L’Automne by Fauchon, which has the chocolate right at the front of the sip. This is okay, and I’ll be good finishing it off, however I doubt I’ll order more.
Dammit, I love this tea. Really, truly love it. I dunno why I gave it such a low rating before, because I’ve been craving it… so much so that I had a cup very, very late last night, be damned the caffeine! So incredibly delicious. I’ll have to order more of this when I (eventually) run out. Also made me want to try the other TARDIS I have, that one the TARDIS (Blend) by Cara McGee. Sadly, I’ve yet to find it in my out-of-control stash. Upping the rating.
This is tasting… less amazing than the first time or two that I steeped it. It’s just… okay now, although a bit buttery and fruit-like, I’m just missing anything really wowza tonight. Unsure why, I’ll have to try again soon, considering how darn expensive this tin was!
Wow. WOW! So delicious, and surprisingly so. I’ve had a bit of interesting luck with 52 Teas of late, so when an order came in today, I said… hell yes! I’m trying this.
Huge pieces of blueberries adorn this tea, and it smells absolutely divine – like a strong blueberry spun sugar, the kind you’d get at some festival that focuses on yesteryear or maybe a 60’s themed candy shop (of which yes, I’ve been to both!)
Drinking this is amazing. I’m so blown away by it. It’s light blueberry with sweet, sweet, sweet sugar attached. Far from cloying, it’s just perfectly light and airy. I may need to order more before Frank runs out of reblends.
Pretty sure this is what I had at the newly opened coffee/tea shop just a few blocks from my place. Interestingly, it’s called Camellia yet they’re more of a coffee place, AND there’s a tea house also opening next door.
So, I wanted to try something unique, and this called to me. Soursop?! Okay. It smelled like a dark berry with a hint of sourness, however brewed it smelled more.. floral. I ended up dumping it unfortunately, as it was all floral and soapy tasting to me. I’ll have to talk to the shop owners to see if it was perhaps their first brewed tea made (it well could have been) or if this is how the tea is naturally supposed to taste.
