drank Apricot Fusion by 52teas
247 tasting notes

It was so nice waking to Apricot Fusion this morning! (Thank you, Breville, for adding a timer!) Last night, when I opened the package, I could smell the fruitiness. It was a clean scent that mingled nicely with the grounding smell of tea. I was really excited about this tea, having tried another of 52Teas’ flavors, and not having been disappointed.

I wasn’t sure at all how long to let it steep, or at what temperature, so I picked one between green/white tea and oolong temps. 180 for 1 min 30 sec. When I came downstairs, my kitchen smelled heavenly.

So, I take a sip, expecting fruitiness, but it was quite muted from what I could smell. I take another and the same. I almost get a vegetal taste mixed in. Kind of asparagusy. Not a great mix for apricot. Still, something compels me to continue sipping. As I sip, I find that I’m enjoying it more and more. It’s nice. It’s not what I had hoped for, but it’s still good. I’ll try it again with a lower temp and a longer steep time.

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 1 min, 30 sec

I’ve always been a tea lover. When I lived in France during college, I really loved the tisanes. Over the past couple of years, I’ve branched off into loose teas. I’m not very knowledgeable about teas, but I’m really loving the learning process!
