1416 Tasting Notes
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.
I’m enjoying this a bit less than last time, however unsure as to why. Perhaps I need a shorter steeping time? It’s still delicious, just less juicy than the last time hot… more so cold. Still, it’s a lovely tea, and I’m so glad that JustJames sent some to me.
It’s only fitting that my 500th tasting note is with this superhero of a tea, right? I mean, I drink it more than any other tea in my cupboard of late while trying to bite whatever stomach issue my body seems to want to hold onto.
As always, this is tasty, to the point of being syrupy ginger in liquid form, and I’m quite happy with that.
When I drink this, I call this tea, “The Tea That Burned JustJames” because it was so darn spicy. This is the first time, in the however many times I’ve had it, that I too have found it spicy. Really spicy!
I need to mix this bag a bit better, methinks. I still love it, even more so with some sweetener.
Had a cup of this last night/this morning – which of course means 9:00am today as my last night, and 2:30pm today as my morning. Ha!
Been feeling out of sorts again, and have a sneaky feeling I’ve been somehow eating gluten/grains by accident. So, I’m going to the other route and detoxing, which started with this tea, and then moving on to a super high fat diet to get back on track again.
This tea definitely helped clear my head and my body of whatever was plaguing it last night/this morning. It still tasted mostly of licorice, however I’m cool with that.
