440 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…
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. 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.
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
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.
