Having this one a lot lately. Kind of a mellow, friendly blend of flavors.
56 Tasting Notes
The strawberry flavor is the strongest I’ve ever encountered with this tea. I didn’t care for this one the first couple of times I made it, but it has grown on me. A dash tends to blend well with other teas as well.
Keep trying this one but it just doesn’t seem to be growing on me. I’ve tried steeping with a few other teas with improves it somewhat. I can’t even put my finger on why I’m not liking this.
Got in the habit of having this most mornings. Went back to the store to get more, but they said they have retired both of these. So I bought a couple new ones to try, but I’ll miss this one. It’s probably good to break out of the habit though.
Was really excited to try 52teas for the first time. I love toffee, so I bought this tea right away when I saw it on their website. I thought the smell was chocolatey but I didn’t really get a Heath Bar smell. When I steeped I didn’t get any chocolate or toffee taste. And, am I crazy? If someone had just given me this cup of tea I would have sworn it was flavored to taste like hot chocolate. Hmm…will try again in a few days. Will hold off rating for now…
I had 5 cups of this Tuesday morning while working from home, and now I’m having more. I would describe this blend as easy or mindless. There’s not a lot of depth to it but it’s a lot of fun to drink.
Definitely can pick up on the peach notes. The chestnut and honey notes are more subtle. A nice light tea.
I was on vacation last week, and I chose to mostly take a vacation from the internet as well. So I didn’t get around to logging much, but I did have this most mornings. A nice way to start the day except the morning I made it iced instead of hot. Unless my taste buds are just weird, this tea just doesn’t work as an iced a.m. beverage.
Picked this up tonight. Had never tried it and it was cheap. The scent of apricot was incredibly strong, but much lighter when tasted. I think I’ll try an even shorter steep time next time. A good alternative to Lipton.
From one of the Bartleby’s own blends. The cafe is next door to the (somewhat) famous Mystic Pizza. Bartleby’s should be the one with recognition. But many people do tend to like eating cooked cheese more than drinking dried leaves.
Have had this two mornings in a row. Have just enough for one more cup. Will miss it and may order some in the future.
No notes yet.
Had this yesterday. (The 0 calorie stevia version, not the sugar cane one.) I liked this better when tea was one of the first ingredients. Now it’s carrot juice. I can’t even taste the tea anymore.
This brings back memories. Peach is one of my favorite black tea fruit flavors. And I had a coupon so I picked this up. It’s a lot less sweet than most other sweetened, bottled teas on the market. But, still, it’s almost unbearably sweet to my palate. I remember about 5 years ago I bought this and couldn’t even tell it was sweet. Our palates really do change based on how much refined sugar we ingest. Still a much better choice than other bottled tea brands. It was my “transition” tea.
On my third cup of this morning. This would be a good tea for coffee drinkers looking to switch. Its complex flavors are rich and thick and it’s a full-bodied tea with more than the average amount of caffeine. (At least it seems that way to me as I always feel a caffeine buzz when I drink it.)
Had some of this last night. Feels a bit weird adding this to my cupboard, but it is tea related and it is in my house…We added some lemonade to it—which is probably the first thing people trying mixing. Nice. Lemonade tea and vodka go nicely together. I wonder other cocktails could be made?
Made this while fixing breakfast and accidentally oversteeped it by about 5 minutes! Still excellent, now the flavors are just more bold.
Brought this to work to treat myself. Instead of having the really bad Timothy’s green tea we have in the office I had this beautiful tea. Yay, vacation starts in a few hours!
This is the brewed green tea that my local coffee shop serves. Not sure if they make the bagged version or the loose, but it has a really smooth taste. It always strikes me as a green you could like even if you don’t like green tea.
The flavor is heavy on the lemongrass which I like but might be too much for some.
I’ve been going there for four years now and always get a lemon wedge. But today they threw in a lime wedge. I shrugged. Heck, I love the lime. Why not squeeze it? Regret! So be warned extra citrus lovers…
Had another cup this morning. Steeped an extra minute which worked out well.
Usually I have this in the morning and I love it. It’s not overly sweet and I haven’t really understood why so many people describe it that way.
But this morning I could barely finish my little cup. Perhaps the maple chunks are heavy and now that I’m getting more than half way through the canister I’m steeping more into my tea. D’oh, gravity!
Received a generous portion of this from Mel. Love it. It’s nice and light and earthy. Great mellow tea for the evening.
Resteeped the leaves and added a pinch of rooibos key lime. The citrus flavors danced!
Tastes exactly like Kool-Aid.
Received this from Mel. I was really excited about this being Chocolate and Puerh. Then I read the description on the tea bag pouch that read, “velvety and vanilla.” So I got a bit worried. What happened to chocolate? Then I read the ingredients on the back of the tea bag pouch with more ingredients like nutmeg and cinnamon. Now it’s a chai? Darn.
I thought this was ok. Not being a fan of chai I could still drink it. The flavors seemed to mellow as I drank it even. But I thought the chocolate was the most distant flavor of the bunch. Not at all what I expected. But ok.
