drank SBT: Pink Lemonade by 52teas
1006 tasting notes

Another awesome iced tea! I’ve said it before, but I’m really, really impressed with these. This one is no exception. As soon as I opened the packet, I could smell Pink Lemonade, just as I remember it from my childhood. From the first sip, this tastes almost exactly like Pink Lemonade too, only with less sugar and the bonus of being in tea form. I’m glad Frank pointed out that there’s cotton candy flavouring in the mix here, because I could taste that almost immediately and I probably would have been a bit confused! It’s the cotton candy that provides the “pink” here, I think (ooh, rhyme!!), which is them complimented beautifully by a relatively strong, but not bitter or overpowering, lemon taste.

This is another one of those flavours I would have thought it shouldn’t be possible to recreate as tea. Apparently it is, though! This is the perfect choice for the hot, summery day that today has become. It’s sweet, tasty, refreshing, and it’s one of the only cold drinks that keeps my caffiene cravings at bay! I don’t know how I managed before I found these. They’re simply amazing! Great work, Frank!

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 now 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.
