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.

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!

Ah, tea. My love for you is ever changing. At my last update, I was all about the rooibos and now I hardly drink it. I only occasionally had an oolong and now I have one just about every day. I’ve learned the art of resteeping and coldbrewing and kombucha. I have a lovely little tea pet named…well, I haven’t decided on a name for him yet. I also have four live pets, a tabby cat named Rosabella Francis (Bella for short), a ginger cat named Orange Julius Pekoe (Pekoe), a white and grey cat named Earl Jean Grey (Earlie), and a red foot tortoise named Da Hong Pao (Pao). So if you see me referring to my girls, I don’t have kids, just animals.

As for tea, I love oolongs, herbals, and black tea. Since I am no longer working, I no longer feel the constant need for a mate energy boost, though I do still reach for it from time to time. I also drink less matcha, though I do throw a spoonful or two in when I’m making smoothies. Most of my tea I drink coldbrewed, and since I discovered coldbrewed rooibos was giving me headaches, I’m drinking less and less of it. Straight pu-erh is not a thing I enjoy, but there are a few flavored blends I like. Greens are still too finicky for me to bother with hot, but they make great cold brews.

I am by no means a tea purist. I greatly enjoy flavored teas and I put sugar in all of my teas. It’s just how I do.

I think I’m going to name my tea pet Mr. Turtle. Even though he’s a tortoise.
