Hmm… I can clearly smell and taste what’s supposed to be the flavor of buttery pastry, but it just keeps reminding me of yogurt. I think it’s a personal association more than an error of 52teas’ part, but nonetheless I can’t get the idea that I’m drinking yogurt-flavored tea out of my head.
I like this tea, but I wish it had about twice as much fruit flavor. That’s what I expect from this kind of tea, and I think it would cover up the yogurt-y weirdness as well. It’s a good attempt, don’t get me wrong, and I appreciate that it’s a different approach to dessert teas than I’m used to tasting, but it could be a lot better.
That said, I’m glad I got to sample this! I’m definitely curious about 52teas’ other pastry-esque dessert blends, because I’m sure some of them are wonderful.
