852 Tasting Notes
Thank you 52Teas for sending this!
The smell of this tea is sooo yummy. When I opened the bag I saw whole cloves hanging out. That scared me a little.. but it’s so good! I can barley taste them. :) In fact, they fit in just perfectly! I was expecting more of a chai flavor but it is so much more than that! Mmm :) such a perfect drink for a chilly day.
Adagio sent me this as a nice sample! The smell is wonderful! Grapefruit always reminds me of breakfast so this had to do as a morning, start off tea. I am always afraid of the grapefruit being too overpowering of the tea flavor or being too bitter, but this actually blends nicely with the oolong :] It’s not too strong and you can still taste the oolong.
When I open my package it smelled SO good! The first few sips were very strong with clove. Not a fan of strong clove… But as it cooled I got a bit more of the cheesecake and caramel. It’s actually pretty good :) I almost doubted it with the strong clove beginning.
I have been eyeing this one for such a long time! Well, I finally ordered it and when I opened the bag it smelled like chocolate ice cream! Mmm :] The smell of the steeped tea is so relaxing. I’m about to fall asleep so hopefully this mate will kick in! I love roasted mate and that’s mainly what I’m getting from this. The chocolate malt lingers in the aftertaste. It almost reminds me of warm rocky road ice cream. Mmmmmmmmm :]
Thank you Tattooed_tea!
This is a pretty rooibos with all the colors and petals in it. This has a weird fruit flavor to it. It kind of reminds me of fruit punch. I can taste pineapple and coconut. And maybe a bit of vanilla. There is different fruit flavors with each sip but that darn coconut just keeps wanting to over power them. I like it and I’m happy I got a chance to try it, but this may be one of those teas I just don’t run and order right now.
I was excited to see a wintergreen matcha! I love wintergreen! It is my favorite flavor out of all the mint flavors you could find. I’m happy I saved it for last. Last is best of all the game, right? You can find it here:
MMM this smells like wintergreen Altoids! I could eat a pack of them a day. And I do :[ My wintergreen Altoid habit is getting expensive.. haha The smell is very strong and wakes my senses up a little bit. It’s slightly spicy, slightly sweet. It made my entire tv room smell like wintergreen. Now let’s see how it tastes…
Woo! It even tastes like wintergreen Altoids! The flavor is spicy, sweet, and cooling. I feel like mints and green tea go together quite well. In this case they make a perfect couple! They compliment each other. You think it would be weird hot but I almost prefer it hot! And it makes an excellent iced matcha as well, obviously.. I can see myself running out of this quickly. This is a very unique one, too. I haven’t seen many wintergreen flavored teas around so I’m very happy I found this one :] I’d recommend you give this one a try if you are a fan of mint teas!
