55
drank Weeping Angel Tea by 52teas
554 tasting notes

Received a sample of this in a swap from someone but I’m afraid it’s been so long that I can’t recall who. It’s a miracle that I even got around to drinking it with a newborn around so let’s just focus on that!

Unfortunately I had no idea what flavored I was supposed to be tasting as I drank this, since the description was wiped out on this new version of Steepster. So I was going in blind.
It reminded me a bit of Kusmi’s Caramel tea. No popcorn or buttery toffee taste that I noticed. (I looked it up right now on the website). I found the flavoring very mellow and subtle, which can be looked at two ways -

1) since when I was pregnant I was immensely turned off by the smell of all my flavored teas, the fact that this wasn’t super flavored (aka fake/chemical) tasting to me may be a good thing
2) I kinda wish it had been more tasty…buttered toffee caramel corn sounds delish.

This tea is at least a year old since I received it before I got pregnant, so that might have something to do with the lack of amazing tastiness, but from what I recall of the 52teas I’ve tried, most have underwhelmed me anyway.

edited to add: I should probably comment on the Dr. Who-ness of this blend. I don’t get it, Weeping Angels don’t go well with delicious caramel popcorn in my mind. But I suppose I wouldn’t drink evil, pigeon poop flavored pu’erh tea anyway (because pu’erh tastes like fishy dirt to me, so there’s an association I can back!!)

Bio

Hello!

I love tea. I love my baby daughter, my husband, my dog Wally, Netflix, shopping, and tea. Some other stuff too, but these are the most important!

Some favourites -

Butiki teas in general, I love how the flavours are subtle and not fake tasting and don’t overwhelm the tea base. Trust that I will be dramatically mourning the loss of this company!

Harney and Sons, Teavivre, Whispering Pines and Mariage Freres are some more tea companies I appreciate. Along with Davidstea as it was the ‘gateway drug’ to my tea addiction. Though I’m mostly over it now, I’ve definitely moved on from the artificially flavoured teas and am trying more quality straight teas!

My ultimate goal is to try as many French teas as possible – and to finally find a source in Canada for Mariage Freres so I can buy Wedding Imperial, and Black Orchid for sure.

I would like to try any Taiwanese Assams that exist in the world!

Also continuously on the hunt for Fauchon – La Naissance.

When I rate, it goes like this:

85 -100 = WIN! awesome, I love this and keep it on hand
70 – 85 = pretty darn good but I don’t NEED to own it
55 – 70 = not necessarily terrible but not a tea for me!
30 – 55 = missed the mark as far as I am concerned. Wouldn’t drink it willingly.
0 – 30 = I likely won’t rate this low very often, so if you see it, consider the tea a great big FAIL and probably disgusting.
