drank Apricot Fusion by 52teas
1011 tasting notes

This is tea 2 of 4 from my most recent 52teas order. Normally, an apricot tea wouldn’t interest me much, BUT the combination of this tea being a once in a lifetime offering and that it is from the master of blending at 52teas…I had to pick some up. There have been just a few white teas that I’ve really enjoyed with the most recent being Silver Needles, but I do love oolongs and greens. The ingredient list is very unusual and I was a bit worried about how long to steep this tea. Luckily some of the other reviewers included this brewing times to help me decide on a starting point.

The scent of this tea reminds me of peach more than apricot but that may be because I haven’t had anything with apricot in quite awhile. Initially I just taste the fruity aspect but that is followed by a softness that I associate with the Silver Needles I had once. There is something interesting to this blend that I can’t quite describe but I think I like it. The rating is subject to change after I’ve had a few more experiences with this one.

Bio

Formally known as mrawlins2

I am a former coffee drinker turned tea lover.

Black tea is probably my favorite type of tea, but I rather enjoy most types… I’m even developing a taste for pu-erh.

Rating Scale:
0-10: This tea is either flavorless or just plain undrinkable. I will avoid these teas in the future.

11-20: I was only able to make it through a few sips before pouring the tea out.

21-30: I may have been able to make it through the first cup but the thought of having another has me cringing.

31-40: Teas in this range are not horrible, but nothing I would seek out in the future.

41-60: Would drink if offered, but would not purchase for myself.

61-70: Okay, nothing special

71-80: Enjoyable, but I have to be in the mood for these. Probably would purchase if I found a really great price.

81-90: Pretty good tea, will probably be one of my favorites.

91-95: These teas are really excellent. I wouldn’t necessarily run out and buy more of these (just because there are so many teas out there that I haven’t tried), but I would miss this tea.

96-99: Terrific, very impressive.

100: This special rating is reserved for teas that are absolutely perfect in my opinion. I will only give out a rating of 100 to one tea per category (Earl Grey, unflavored black, dessert tea, Irish Breakfast, etc). These are teas that I really want to have around.

Perfect Teas so Far:

Earl Grey: Saint Isaac’s Blend (Russian Earl Grey) from Upton

Dessert Tea: Marco Polo from Mariage Freres

Unflavored Black: Emperor’s Red from Premium Steap
