I cold steeped this, and drank it iced, and really enjoy it. I wouldn’t say it is a super strong flavor, but it also means it doesn’t taste too artificial. I recommend it for people who like berry flavors, but want something a bit different.

I enjoyed this iced. I can taste both blackcurrant and peach, which is a nice change of pace from one overwhelming flavor. Even if it is a good overwhelming. I didn’t get any wow factor here, but it was nice. I would only recommend being extremely careful not to oversteep – I brewed this at 160, normally only greens need to be that low for me, and it was still a bit bitter after three minutes.

I enjoyed my sample of this very much. A new, fancy tea to celebrate a new, shiny job. I am really really excited, and equally stressed. I will be moving to Virginia ASAP and teaching third grade at what seems like a very nice school. I am packing like a maniac, while trying to run a million errands to transfer pet sitting clients literally overnight, and doing the paperwork type stuff that comes with moving and hiring and the like.

But I took time to drink this this morning as a small celebration. With all the stress of my first year of teaching looming as well as a big move, I feel like it will be difficult for me to celebrate if I don’t make the time. I find this tea to be extremely tasty. Cocoa, malt, and hay is what I taste, though specifically slightly damp hay. Normally I am not capable of being so specific, but this seems to have a slight tang or sourness that is similar to that of wet hay.

I fell in love with this tea in Tokyo :)
I will just throw my opinion out there: There is no better Dian Hong to be had


New shiny job! Congrats!


Congrats! From a mom who recently had a third grader two years ago. . .Thank you! Third grade was hard on the kiddo. Teachers are awesome!

I appreciate the well wishes – I am excited. I hear third grade can be a tough year, but I hear it is one they make some of the most progress, so it sounds super rewarding. I am sure your kid’s teacher was so happy you are so supportive, it makes the job SO much easier, and it isn’t always the case.

I am not the biggest fan of this one, but not because the tea is poorly flavored. I just don’t care much for coconut in tea, or banana flavoring. But this is very desserty, and thankfully is drinkable. I appreciated the real coconut flakes, it made the coconut more real tasting and less like weird butter, which I often taste in other coconut teas.

Fruity and fresh, the berry in this is strongest. I do not taste mint at all, though for all I know it enhances the other flavors. I would enjoy it more with stronger mint. I do also get a tropical edge…but primarily red berry, particularly in the aftertaste.

I was surprised to end up loving this – when it was breweing, it wasn’t particularly fragrant. But as I take a sip I am really impressed. It does taste very ricey, of course, and the marshmallow flavor is strong. I always add a tablespoon of honey to my pitchers of iced tea, just to give a hint of extra sweetness per cup. It works really well with this blend. I never would have thought I would love icing a flavor like this, but it is one I would reach for over many of my fruity blends.

I think this is best when enjoyed hot. Iced, I found it kind of bland. I could taste the strawberry some, and the cake aspect was very very slight. I admit I might be comparing this a bit to the other flavors I have had so far, and they have been rather strong, which I liked, but this one, while pleasant, wasn’t my favorite.

So, so, so yummy. I wasn’t sure I would love the popcorn/blueberry flavor combo, but thankfully I was very wrong. I have never been able to taste the blueberry in a blueberry tea quite this intensely, and it is very sweet all on its own. I had it hot and let it cool and both were delicious. It held up really well to resteeping – the blueberry flavor was still strong, which I find rare. It was more balanced in the second steep, making it remind me of blueberry oatmeal. A must for anyone who loves blueberry.

The blueberry is surprisingly bright, isn’t it? Really good stuff.

A very accurate flavor, with pretty equal parts tea, marshmallow, and pineapple. I don’t know that I love this combo all that much, but anyone who does will enjoy this very much. I enjoy the quality boost of the company revamp – well worth a couple extra dollars per month.

Thank you!

As the first tea I’ve tasted from the new 52teas, I am very impressed. It is juicy and actually tastes like cucumber as well as the cantaloupe, which is super hard to do. Also, I got a respectable second steep out of it. I drank the second steep hot, the first iced, and really like it. I am very excited about future creations.

Now a certified teacher, beginning my first year in third grade this fall. I have been involved in the tea world about 5 years now. In that time, I have learned so much, and am hoping to learn even more by joining the steepster community.

In my non-tea times, I am usually watching netflix while writing lesson plans, cuddling my two kitties, or trying to find new things to do in a town that is sometimes a bit limited!
