Another one finished off! I decided that what I really needed was something black and fruity sweet, not something plain black.

So I took the rest of these leaves, again, enough for just half a pot, and botched the brewing. I put them in the pot, but by the time the water was done boiling I’d forgotten that I only had enough leaves for half a pot so I filled it up. I don’t like pouring a botched brewing away without tasting it first, so we’ll see if I just wasted the last of my leaves of this one.

Yes, it’s definitely a bit on the weakling side. It’s still tasting like a black tea though and there’s they sweet fruity note that I wanted clear enough. It just doesn’t really have much body. But that’s my own fault.

I like it. It was fun to try and I’m curious about this guanabana fruit. Unlikely to ever get to taste one, but still. I kinda suspect that I would like it. But it’s not a tea that I feel any need to stock up on.

Suzi logged this yesterday and reminded me that I still had some left in my sample tin. I bought it primarily because of the odd name. Never heard of this fruit before, but if I ever get to South America (doubtful, considering my fear of travelling) I’ll have to make sure to try and taste it.

It’s sweet and fruity and tastes tropical. If I knew what the fruit really tastes like ‘au naturel’ my review of it might be difference, but as it is I’m thinking it’s a fruit I might like. So this is my morning cup on this grey and dismal looking thursday. I understand the majority of you lot have a holiday today, so I’m guessing a lot of people won’t be around. Wow… bad day for me to get addicted to the live stream, but there you are. My life in a nutshell.

Heh, being that Thanksgiving is traditionally a holiday centered around family, you might find quite a few people hiding out on Steepster regardless. I distinctly remember a Thanksgiving we spent with family out in Ohio, where I told them I was doing schoolwork but I was actually playing mini-golf on candystand.com. My cousin found me and in exchange for not telling we played two-player for the rest of the afternoon.

Suzi

Ha ha, I’ll still be around. I had to skip out the festivities and work on a paper for school :-p

Angrboda

Don’t go playing minigolf instead. :D

Awww I hearts my Steepster Peeps today. :)

Suzi

Hey, congrats on the $2 shipping w/ 52teas :D You had me cracking up over in Steepster Select!

Angrboda

Hey, this place is AWESOME! Now I want to build a statue of 52Teas out of used leaves and worship at its feet.

My Thanksgiving was back in mid-October so this is just another day for me. ;)

While I wasn’t completely convinced of this when I first reviewed it, I have an addendum to make.
It is absolutely splendid iced!

I had never heard of this before, but apparently it’s some sort of tropical fruit that we others can’t get because the fruit doesn’t transport very well.
The dry leaves smell weird. Sort of fruity and bitter at the same time. Like a very old orange. At this point I’m sceptic. Very sceptic.
Colour is nice and golden and the scent is something familiar that I can’t quite place. It’s not mouldy oranges anymore anyway.
The taste is…. strange. Fruity. Adagio suggests something akin to candied strawberry and pineapple. I can’t really ‘find’ those notes but at the same time I don’t really disagree either. I can’t tell when I don’t know how the fruit is supposed to taste.

I like it. I don’t think I’ll stock up on it once I’ve got through the sample, but I like it.

I hate this tea. Steeped leaves smell like latex gloves and the tea tastes like liquid vegetables.

Really enjoyed this at Tbar in Philadelphia. Rich, warm, and flavorful.

Opening the tin, the amazing bouquet draws you in. It is as if I lit a stick of Jasmine incense and let the smoke waft up around me. This key characteristic is also the key problem with this tea: the bouquet overpowers the flavor. It is like drinking a bottle of perfume.

light and refreshing – but not as flavorful as other jasmine teas I’ve had, or other jasmine pearls for that matter

2nd steep, still awesome, not bitter, picking up more of a spiced aspect.

At this point, I’m feeling a slight caffeine boost from steep #1, but not as much as I have when previously drinking Jasmine #12. A good thing. And thus, I will assume that over-steeping = over-caffeinating.

One of my classic all time favorites – very smooth and mellow, delicate and fresh.

I usually get a pretty serious caffeine buzz from this tea, too – so I’ll update you on whether or not that’s the case today in my followup 2nd steep post
