I’m not sure what to write about this one, so I’m just going to transcribe the discussion between Missy, myself, and our daughter:

Dylan: “It is kind of weird that the flavor is so passive on this”
Missy: “Right? It’s fairly tame, with just a little blackberry at the end”
Dylan: “You can’t even really taste the Rooibos”
Missy: “Yeah, where’d the honeybush go?”

It truly is light enough that we weren’t sure whether it was honeybush or rooibos (the bag says rooibos). At this point, Missy called our daughter in, who we’ve been trying to get to be a little more discerning on how she likes different teas and tisanes.

Missy: “Here, taste this”
Dodge: “It tastes okay. Not like bad okay, but pretty good okay. I would drink this”
Dylan: “I just think its weird that there isn’t that much flavor”
Dodge: “Dude, what are you talking about, there’s tons of flavor!”

Just proves the point that people don’t taste things the same.

If I say this people will burn me at the stake, but I ordered several times from 52 tea’s and every time I didn’t like the taste so I just don’t order anymore. Something about whomever does the flavors and my own taste just does not click. My point being like yours…to each their own.

Missy

I know such cute creatures too…..

Dylan Oxford

Haha, its funny that I actually said rooibos. I think Missy actually said wallaby, but I wrote honeybush. Not sure why.

Bonnie – some of 52teas blends don’t hit me right either… but others… man, there is nothing like it in the world. I need to sit down and write a review of the ginger ale bai mu Dan. It is so good! And so unique! That’s part of it for me too… he goes out on a lot of limbs it seems. And I like fostering that.

Some of their blends are fantastic, others not so much. I do like supporting them too.

Bonnie

Sorry for being so harsh but after the cherry cheesecake blech and the pancake tea was not that good and one other was just aweful that I could not hack it. I mean, was I going to try again? I had 3 strikes in a row and never a hit.

Missy

What works for some doesn’t always work for everyone. Our daughter is a perfect example. We her have taste many things and she is generally at the opposite end of the spectrum from us. Her favorites are tisanes. I suspect her palate doesn’t accept actual tea well right now.

Dylan Oxford

Nope, I totally understand. You gave it a good honest effort :)

Angrboda

I’ve noticed that sometimes as well. I had a blueberry flavoured one once where everybody else talked about how all their teaware they had used it brew it just smelled strongly of blueberries afterwards, and I couldn’t find as much as a smidge of blueberry in it anywhere.
How old is Dodge?

Bio

My fiancé and I are beginning to enjoy tea infusion, and it’s slowly becoming an interesting hobby that the two of us can share. Maybe not slowly… it’s somewhat amazing how much tea you can buy when everything looks shiny and new.

Tea Rating system:

90 – 100: This is a tea I will always have on hand at work, and at home. I will leave it on altars as offerings of perfection.

80 – 89: This, or one of it’s close cousins, will likely be in my cabinet at home. When this tea runs out, I will buy more. I’ll always wonder if there is something better, but be too afraid to look to stray from home to find it.

70 – 79: Definitely good, but not a clear winner. I enjoy it, I’ll finish it, but I probably won’t buy it again until I’ve exhausted all other versions of this product from any reputable retailer. Though, it may enjoy a resurrection for custom blending.

60 – 69: This tea is okay, but definitely not something I’m going to brew again. I’m going to give what I have left away.

30 – 59: I didn’t finish drinking this tea. I actually poured it out, and went for something else. I’ll still give this tea away, but I’ll do it with a warning and a plead for forgiveness.

0 – 29: This tea is riding securely towards an iceberg at the helm of the failboat. I’ve taken this out of my tea tin, and laid it on a napkin as potpurri. I do not consider it fit for human consumption.
