70

So this morning, I reached into my 52teas box of chocolate teas intending to have a delicious cup of chocolate caramel black tea as my first cup of tea for the day. I portioned out a single serving size and noticed I would not have enough leaf left from another single serving size so I measured the rest into my steeping basket and got a larger mug. Then I went to rinse the tiny tin out to keep. And noticed I’d used the wrong tea. Oh well, it was already in the steeping basket. There was no turning back now!

Being the last of the tea, the cup came out stronger than usually. At first, I thought too strong but a little way in, I was liking it. It was very creamy this time, I’m guessing the white chocolate.

Then something wonderful happened. I had somehow distractedly left less than an inch of tea in the bottom of my cup, which became quite cold. I decided to gulp it down anyways before I made another cup. Omg! Bingo! There it is – white chocolate strawberry. This tea has been good but had never tasted exactly like it until then. But it was totally noticeable cold.

I’m upping my final rating of this tea to a 70 (high nice/low good) from a 64 initially before I decupboard it. Overtime, it’s tasted more and more like white chocolate and fruit/strawberry and I’ve come to like it quite well.

Would I order this again? 2.5 (neutral to maybe)
While I would definitely drink this if I had it lying around, I’ve had better 52teas, chocolate teas, and chocolate teas from 52teas. So I think others would trump this when making an order. But it’s a moot point. 52teas is a mostly limited release company and this was part of a sampler.

Bio

I’m 33 years old, studying pharmacy, and have a surly cat named Bin. I love tea, coffee, beer, wine, and most things food and beverage related. I also love music, movies, reading, writing, and learning new things.

I’ve drank tea all my life but about five to six years ago, my close friend Spautz got into tea and got me more into tea. I drink black teas and tisanes/herbals most. Since receiving a variable temperature kettle from my parents for Xmas this past year, I’ve been drinking more greens, oolongs, and whites. I’m very very new to puerh. That is, I’ve had only one.
