drank Strawberry Pie Honeybush by 52teas
2225 tasting notes

I did it. I finally placed my 52 Teas order. I ended up with 19 different items and it came out to about $65. Not bad.

I am having a cup of this tasty tea to celebrate. When I first had this I loved it so much. It was the perfect tea. Now, though I still like it, I find myself longing for that first cup. The strawberry is a little lackluster today and I might even detect the pepper that others have mentioned. The cinnamon is also a tad flat today. With all that said, I swear it is still a good cup, just not great when compared to the explosion of strawberry pie flavor I remember.

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
