drank Sun and Cloud Mist by 52teas
682 tasting notes

On the third day of Christmas, 52Teas gave to me…Sun and Cloud Mist!

I’d actually been looking at this on here earlier today, wishing I’d had the chance to try some. So you’ll understand exactly how delighted I was to open the sachet and find this.

It smells, as I’m coming to discover is normal for 52Teas, A-MA-ZING. Sweetly lemony, and so fresh. I can tell this is going to be a good one.

I’m not disappointed. Ohh, this is nice. It’s no secret that I’ve never been the biggest green tea fan, but this tea is perfect. I can’t imagine it working as well with any other base, and I could happily sit and drink it all day. Most green tea makes me wrinkle my nose a bit, but not this one. It’s not at all bitter or astringent, it just tastes of pure, sweet lemon cream.

I have no idea how Frank does it, but the man is clearly a genius and this tea is simply divine. Love at first sip.

Bio

Hi :) I’m Sarah, 25, and I live in Norwich in the UK. My tea obsession began when a friend introduced me to Teapigs a good few years ago now. Since then, I’ve been insatiable. Steepster introduced me to a world of tea I never knew existed, and my goal is not to TRY ALL THE TEAS. Or most of them, anyway.

I still have a deep rooted (and probably life-long) preference for black tea. My all-time favourite is Assam, but Ceylon and Darjeeling also occupy a place in my heart. Flavoured black tea can be a beautiful thing, and I like a good chai latte in the winter.

I also drink a lot of rooibos/honeybush tea, particularly on an evening. Sometimes they’re the best dessert replacements, too. White teas are a staple in summer — their lightness and delicate nature is something I can always appreciate on a hot day.

I’m still warming up to green teas and oolongs. I don’t think they’ll ever be my favourites, with a few rare exceptions, but I don’t hate them anymore. My experience of these teas is still very much a work-in-progress. I’ve also never really tried pu’erh, and that’s something I’m just starting to explore.

I’m still searching for the perfect fruit tea. One without hibiscus. That actually tastes of fruit.

You’ve probably had enough of me now, so I’m going to shut up. Needless to say, though, I really love tea. Long may the journey continue!

My rating system:

91-100: The Holy Grail. Flawless teas I will never forget.

81-90: Outstanding. Pretty much perfection, and happiness in a cup.

71-80: Amazing. A tea to savour, and one I’ll keep coming back to.

61-70: Very good. The majority of things are as they should be. A pleasing cup.

51-60: Good. Not outstanding, but has merit.

41-50: Average. It’s not horrible, but I’ve definitely had better. There’s probably still something about it I’m not keen on.

31-40: Almost enjoyable, but something about it is not for me.

11-30: Pretty bad. It probably makes me screw my face up when I take a sip, but it’s not completely undrinkable.

0-10: Ugh. No. Never again. To me, undrinkable.
