100 Tasting Notes

Wow, I am gulping this down like there’s no tomorrow. I picked this up as a gift to myself for getting through hectic holiday shopping (which is my own fault since it’s Dec 22nd). The coconut and chocolate are definitely there (I’m glad I picked them up since they’re two flavours I have trouble tasting in teas). I added soy egg nog to it since it was the only milk substitute in the house and the spices are giving the tea a nice kick.

After a disastrous attempt at steeping a tea that was supposed to taste like chocolate, I brewed up a cup of this and hoped for better results.

This was lovely. Without milk, this had a nice, creamy texture. I had a bit of trouble finding the chocolate and I know this might sound odd, but I think I was looking for it a bit too hard? Because when I zoned out and took a sip, there it was in the aftertaste.

A very pleasant and light in all the right ways tea!

I’ve never had lime Jello before, but I’ve had many a lime Lifesaver and this tea tastes exactly like one (after I added a squirt of agave). I’m getting from this the same thing I’ve been getting from Frank’s other blends – a nice, full flavour. Because of it being the holidays and money being tight, I can only order a couple of the 12 Days teas and this tea will probably be one of them.

That SOUNDS amazing! One day soon I’m gonna have to fancy up a cup for myself. You’ve inspired me.

I’ve had this many times but this is my first time logging this. I’ve been resteeping a cup of this all day at work and as soon as I got home I brewed up a fresh pot of it. It seems I can’t get enough of this blend!

Nice and creamy with real tasting strawberries, I’m so glad I bought a tin of this.

I usually don’t dig anything spicy or anything mint chocolate, but I was a fan of this.

It also probably had to do with the Kahlua I slipped into my mug. What? It’s the holidays, I’m allowed to relax.

Day 2 of the Christmas sampler!
I’m glad I’m not alone in thinking it smelled like bubblegum. I was really happy to see that today’s tea has bananas. One of the first teas I tried from 52Teas was Monkey Fart (hee!). I loved the way Frank captured the banana flavour (it was punch-you-in-the-face candied bananas rather than the more organic somewhat bland banana taste).
1 tsp in 350ml of water steeped for 2 mins. I love the creaminess of this tea! I get a really strong banana flavour (but interestingly enough, it isn’t a candied banana taste. It’s a nice flavourful creamy banana taste.)with hints of orange and pineapple in the background. I’d really love to try this iced.
Like with the Cotton Candy tea from yesterday, I’m sad that I can’t order a pouch of this (but I’m still glad that I got to try it!).

FYI: each of the 12 Teas of Christmas have been reblended and will be made available day by day during the 12 teas, so if you want to buy a full pouch of this or the cotton candy, they are available now under the Revived section of our In Stock page here: http://www.52teas.com/in-stock/

This is the best (and potentially dangerous) news EVER.

2 tsp in 500ml water. Brewed in my Breville 1 Touch for 3 mins.
Holy. Moly. This is delicious. A small touch of astringency which was quickly remedied with a dab of agave. I’m not used to drinking black tea this bare and I need to start doing it more often because damn, I am in flavour country.
I’ve tried two other black teas by 52teas (Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake and Coconut Cream Pie) and wasn’t impressed by the base, but maybe I must have been overstepping or maybe this blend uses a different tea base because I am in love.
Scrolly button thing isn’t working on my iPod but I give it a rating of 85. Yum!

Bio

I’m a queer lady in my late twenties who loves cats, comic books, travel, and photography. I fell in love with tea in late 2011. My “tea corner” is now threatening to overthrow the kitchen! I’m the worst at writing so I’m sorry about the babbling messes my reviews will most likely be.

DAVIDsTEA was my first introduction to loose leaf tea and I’ve remained pretty loyal to them (especially since they’re a Canadian company so their shipping price isn’t ridiculous and delivery is speedy!) I’ve recently ventured into teas by 52teas, Della Terra Teas and the Metropolitan Tea Company.

The first teas I really enjoyed were dessert ones (and I still overloaded them with sugar, blech!). I still like them but now I’m trying to get into less-sugary teas. I loooooove me a good genmaicha and have a weakness for most oolongs.
