I’m probably not the best person to review this type of tea seeing as how I don’t like to drink plain black tea much but I wanted to give it a shot at least. Not judge a tea by it’s tin, ya know.

Not getting much of a chocolate or malty flavors. It is very earthy. Somewhat grassy but not as much as a green tea would be. For a plain black tea I don’t mind it. Good hot and cold.

As I start steeping this tea I know I am a bit apprehensive about the mint. However, as i put the sample into the teapot and smelled it’s dry essence I knew it wouldn’t be a problem.

Now as I stand here drinking it I do quite like it. It’s like a cup of white mint hot chocolate without all the guiltiness. Though I must admit there is a lingering metal aftertaste thst is bugging me.

Hot chocolate. That is what this tea smells like. When steeped it also has a slight hot chocolate flavor to it. It reminds me of a really good hot chocolate that I can’t remember the name of. Godiva? maybe… Numi has done a great job once again. I love most of what I’ve tried from them and this one is another keeper. The other thing I love about this tea is that the puerh and the chocolate not only mix well but also don’t try to over power each other. Perfectly proportionate.

Flavors: Chocolate

Steepster is not only good for learning about new teas but also new things like stonefruit. Never heard of it but it seems to go quite well with this tea. Its a smooth blend and the dry smell is quite lovely. Kinda flowery but more on the fruity side. When steeped there is still a bit of fruity smell but the black tea comes out more. I’m also findings the black tea is stronger then any other flavor.

It’s nice to be able to try different jasmine teas. Generally I drink green jasmine tea but I’ve been broadening my horizons with different tea/jasmine mixes. This one is quite enjoyable. The jasmine flavor is light and delicious. You can smell the jasmine flavor in each part of the tea and this was one of my indications that it was going to be good. I opened the bag and wow!, and then as soon as I steeped the tea, amazing! and then there’s the smell it gives off while you drink it… ahhhh so good.

This is what I would consider a high class jasmine tea.

Love Genmaicha. The earthy, grassy, and rice flavors. The way its good hot and slightly chilled. Honestly I find that the true flavor comes out as it cools down. That is the case especially with this tea.

Preparation
1 min, 30 sec 1 tsp

I think I must have done something wrong. Either that or this sample has been sitting too long. I taste no orange notes and on top of that I don’t taste that wonderful oolong flavor… i shall have to try again at some point.

drank Candy Corn Black Tea by 52teas

I let it steep a bit too long because I didn’t want my bacon to burn. Even so it’s still drinkable. I love how the candy corn melts into the water and creates such a satisfying flavor. Kinda wish I had a few more candy corns to add to it.

160 °F / 71 °C 5 min, 0 sec 2 tsp

It’s a good tea but not one that I would buy for myself. It does indeed have an imperial taste to it. Reminds me of something they might serve at high noon with a biscuit. In some ways this reminds me of a Ceylon. Maybe that’s why I’m not such a fan. The added flavors make up for that though. It’s a good blend, even if it is a little weird.

Preparation
3 min, 15 sec 1 tsp

Tea. Like coffee and many other things, is basically just flavored water. But don’t you tell any tea or coffee drinkers that.

I’m willing to try out any type of tea, except of course the ones they suggest nursing mothers to not drink. (Like ginseng tea… and I love ginseng sadface)
