520 Tasting Notes


Not a Fan TTB. I am very much a fan of this tea. Some really great vegetal and grass notes. I’d really like to do a cold steep and see how it turns out. It’s more of a green then an oolong I think. It has more of a green flavor then an oolong flavor but it definitely has some of those smooth oolong qualities.

Flavors: Grass, Vegetal

Not a fan TTb. You really have to be a fan of smoky teas in order to enjoy this one. And I am not a fan so I can only say that all I taste is smoke. Actually I feel like I am sipping on a campfire. It tastes exactly like the smoke that follows you around a campfire and makes your eyes water and throat burn. I can’t finish this…. Campfires do not belong in my mouth…


Ok, I wanted to try this from the box but now that I’ve read this, no.


Not a Lapsang Souchong fan either? hehe yea I definitely think out of all teaas this one is definitely a required taste and then some.

drank Rhubarb Green by Adagio Teas

Ok last tea for the night. Not a fan TTB. This one is either stale or … I dont know… I feel like I’m just drinking hot water. Hot water with a lil flavor. Its not even getting that bitter and its been at least 3 mins. Rhubarb in tea doesn’t usually bring out rhubarb flavor.

drank Chocolate by Adagio Teas

Not a Fan TTB. It’s been a hard day for me. I need a bit of a pick me up. And those fruit snacks did nicely. Not quite sure of what to think about this tea though. It has chocolate flavor to it; and the smell is actually quite good. But it’s somewhat artificial. The flavor that is.

Not a fan TTB. On a layover and its raining outside. So I’m just going to drink tea and watch anime.

Vegetal notes mainly but also grass and some marine notes. I feel like there isn’t much to say about this one.

drank Not So Vanilla by Tippy's Tea

Not a fan TTB. This doesn’t pair well with mac and cheese. Really a unique vanilla tea. for some reason I keep thinking of bourbon. Something about the woodiness of the base. The vanilla flavor doesn’t really hit until the after taste.

I love this review! That’s too bad that it did not work well with the mac and cheese and you did not enjoy this tea as much.

Not a fan TTb. As much as I love green tea, this is one that I’ve never really liked. I keep trying but it’s just never gotten a special place on my palate. Hay and grass. This one seems a bit old to me. I’m not getting as much flavor out of it as I feel like I should be. Maybe its the intense hay flavor I’m not liking so much that this one usually reminds me of.

On a side note. If you ever get a chance to go to the Temple of Heaven, do it! It’s amazing.

Not a Fan TTb. I regretted choosing this one after I smelled the dry leaves. Personally I didn’t like the smell at all. But like a book I figured I’d give it a chance. This is an odd fellow. I taste brandy.

Actually, I’m really glad I had this tea now. My grandma liked to drink tea and brandy. This is to you grandma.

drank Coconut green by Zen Tea

Not a fan TTB. This goes down so smoothly! So smooth I’m kinda amazed. I had a bit of a breakdown. Missing my grandma. I needed a bit of a pick me up and this did nicely in helping with that.

All of the flavors blend so nicely. Nothing is too overpowering. The sencha base is a great choice.

Flavors: Coconut, Cream

I’m glad to hear that the tea helped!

Not a fan TTB. I’m hoping people reading my reviews from this TTB aren’t thrown off by the name of it. Anyway, 52 Teas I’m sorry you are going out of business. I wasn’t a big fan but I will admit you had some of the most inventive tea names ever.

As far as this tea goes. It’s not bad. Not quite cherry cola but it works. In a subtle way. I think when you call a tea a soda name it throws your brain off because your brain expects bubbles. The base of this tea is really nice. Slightly woody. Works well with the other ingredients.

I think out of everybody who has tried this, you liked it the most :)


Maybe this tea would work well as a tea-soda

Where to being… well, I’ve been drinking jasmine tea for a long time. It still remains a favorite of mine but I’ve now added any more.

Green teas are my favorite. I like black tea but generally prefer it flavored. I’m finding a new love for oolong. Especially the type that leans more toward green. Whites are nice. Rooibos can be a hit or miss, but honeybush is better. (Golden Honeydew by Lupicia is the best). I don’t mind herbals but it really depends on the ingredients.
