drank Tropical Eyebrows by 52teas
357 tasting notes

I finally got around to planting my garden today. It’s a nice and hot day so i wanted a fruity tea to make into an iced tea for sipping while digging. I don’t ever buy fruity teas so I dove into my swap pile and pulled this one out from KallieBoo!. Sounded perfect. I brewed it up extra strong and then poured it over some ice.

It’s really good. I’m terrible at naming fruit flavors. Especially tropical ones. So all i can say is that it tastes like tropical fruits and a really interesting green tea. I read a previous review noting its smokiness and it does have a smokiness to it, but not a ‘smoked’ (i.e. smoky meat) flavor per se. This might sound strange but it kind of tastes like what I can imagine licking an ash tray might taste like, but in a good way. I don’t know how else to describe it. It’s not strong. Just a hint of it in the aftertaste. I can totally see adding this to my cart next time I see another 52teas tea that sounds interesting. Thanks KallieBoo!!

Bio

I love tea. And I love beer. I spent my twenties thoroughly enjoying all that beer has to offer but now that I’m into my thirties and a stay at home mom of 2 little kids and 1 big kid, I spend more time enjoying tea.

I joined steepster in Feb 2013 and it’s crazy how much my tastes have changed since joining. Before, I liked cream and honey in all teas and loved mostly dessert blacks. Now I almost rarely drink them, but enjoy them from time to time. What I love more than anything are straight rich black teas, Fujian, Laoshan, Rizhao, etc… I also love pretty much any black tea that the little leaf hoppers have gotten their teeth on.

I’m still not too into the green/white/oolong varieties. I keep trying to but my tastes are evolving pretty slowly on that front.

Overall, I just enjoy tea. Something about it that just settles me.
