There has been something I don’t like about some 52 teas blends that I couldn’t put my finger on. Over the months, I have figured it out. I for one don’t think I like honeybush, the flavour to me is so strong and dominant that all of the blends taste so much alike. But I also don’t like the cinnamon flavouring Frank uses, there is something very medicinal about it. I am assuming it is the cinnamon as that is the common ingredient of the blends I don’t like. Needless to say, I don’t like this blend either. The honeybush is just too strong and the cinnamon flavour just isn’t that natural, comforting cinnamon flavour that I love. My Dad was up for Christmas and enjoyed this tea so I think I will bring it down to Vancouver with me when I visit them in a couple of weeks.

Bio

I didn’t drink a lot of tea growing up, just the red rose my nana would make me with about 3 teaspoons of sugar added to it. I started getting into loose leaf tea about a decade ago when I visited our local tea house and tried Rooibos for the first time, though I only drank it on occasion. I didn’t get serious about it until David’s tea came to town. I was on a diet and wanted something I could drink without sugar that had a lot of flavours to choose from.

I prefer black teas, but oolong and green come in a close second. White and guayusa are in the middle, while mate, rooibos and herbals are at the bottom of my list.

Likes: banana, jasmine, pumpkin, lychee, blueberry, chocolate
Dislikes: orange, ginger, rose, hibiscus, butterscotch, honeybush

My non-tea related interests are music, camping, poker, softball, snowboarding, biology and animals. I have 2 dogs and they are my whole life.
