drank Peach Cardamom by 52teas
475 tasting notes

I cold brewed this one because it just sounded like a tea that wanted to be cold brewed. I have to say, when I first opened up the bag, I was hit with this strong smell of maybe cardamom? I’ve only ever had a subtle cardamom flavored ice cream, so I don’t really know what to expect from it. Anyway, after cold brewing, that strong cardamom smell toned down just a tad but was still very overwhelming. I couldn’t even really taste anything other than that. It was also a perfume-y tea in taste, which put me off. So, in conclusion, this tea was really not the tea for me, but I will leave it unrated due to my limited knowledge of cardamom. Thanks to Pyroxy for sending me some to try out!

Bio

I’m a California girl temporarily located in Boston for school (brrr). I only recently got into teas because I’ve never really liked coffee (too bitter), but I have been a daily barley tea drinker since I was little.

Through some timid tastings and exploring, I so far like:
-Japanese green teas (genmaicha, hojicha, sencha, etc)
-Oolongs! (Most kinds except formosa and dan cong so far)
-Straight black teas
-English Breakfast teas
-Fruity teas (peach, apple, strawberry, other berries)

NOT a huge fan of rooibos, matcha, heavily artificial tasting teas, or anything gingery or peppery, but I’m trying to keep an open mind and taste everything that I can!

I’m trying to sample more straight teas and have been having pretty awesome discoveries so far. Thank goodness for sample sizes!

My tentative rating system:
90-100: Woohoo! I’m loving it, and I’m definitely restocking when I get the chance and/or crying when I’m out.

80-90: Yum! I’ll try to restock if it fits in my budget when I run out.

70-80: Probably would not buy again, but it was nice enough to finish the cup.

50-70: Would not choose this tea for myself if given the situation, but would not reject it if someone offered it to me and would gulp down politely.

50 or less: Nope. Don’t care to taste that tea again, sorry!

I’m always down to swap, so send me a message if anything in my cupboard is calling your name!
