This tea smelled delicious dry…and steeped. But the taste…it just fell flat, pardon the pun. My wife just about said it all: It tastes like drinking a candle. I didn’t care for this one at all, which made me sad. I always want to love the teas from 52teas, because everyone raves about them, but I never do. I own six and none of them live up to what I expect.

Maybe we’re not meant to tea.

(Get it? Get it? I’m funny)

Did you try it iced? I preferred it iced with a splash of soda water.

it sounds like it should be yummy indeed!! I do love cherries… maybe you need to let the flavours sink in for a bit? I’ve heard that suggested elsewhere

I’m going to try it iced, but if that doesn’t improve the flavor, you are more than welcome to it, Indigobloom!

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
