drank Sheri's Blend by 52teas
862 tasting notes

Alright – so this is my first exposure to 52teas – I was positively drooling over the coconut cheesecake blend, so I decided to order that and the Valenteas as well to try a few others I was curious about. This is one of them.
First off, this is REALLY true to taste. I get the apricots, and I get the cinnamon and I can’t believe how spot on they are.
BUT, I don’t know that I really like it, either. Maybe it’s that I don’t like rooibos? It seems like there’s an aftertaste that just kind of ruins the experience for me. Vaguely like… licorice?
I don’t know. I definitely give it a moderate rating for it’s accuracy, though; it’s just not necessarily to my tastes.

I have come to the point (as of October 2014) where quality in tea is more important than quantity. Especially because I’m a seasonal tea drinker where hot tea is concerned, and a SLOW one to boot. I generally don’t resteep only because I’d be here all day if I did, though I do break out a gaiwan from time to time.

I adore French teas in practically every iteration, Japanese Sencha (specifically from the Uji region, as they offer the most seaweed flavor), and Dan Cong oolongs. I am trying to focus on plain teas and so companies like Verdant, Upton, and Butiki are on my favorites list.

When it comes to tea, I feel like the 10th Doctor says it best:

“Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses. "
