drank Candy Corn Black Tea by 52teas
1090 tasting notes

Thanks so much to QueenOfTarts selling some of this! A whole pouch! I wished I had this one on Halloween. I was craving candy corn for some reason (what, sugar? honey? wax?) so I thought I’d try this one. It didn’t look there was candy corn in the bag, but there actually is… though I wish there was enough candy corn in the bag for at least ONE corn to be in each cup. I only see a few! I put the candy corn in the mug so it could melt longer. I was wondering if it would melt.. and it does! Though it does kind of flake apart in a not-so-appetizing way. This very much so tastes like candy corn! (Again, sugar/honey). I can see if you usually put sugar in your tea, you’d be thinking: what is the novelty of this one? But the base tea is very nice too.. it seems like an assam, kind of hay/grassy. I was wondering if the second steep would still taste like candy corn with the piece of candy corn long gone, and it does!! So the flavoring alone, even on the second steep tastes like candy corn! I’m very happy with this one and it turned out exactly how I wished. Happy happy! Maybe that’s why I drink tea.. it makes me happy!

Hi! I love tea and trying new ones – it adds a bit of variety to my day! Books, music, TV & movies are my thing… and tea, of course.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! I was bored one day and found out that most of them have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
40-65 – Okay
1-40 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
