drank Pina-Colada-Da-Vida by Brutaliteas

This flavor is pretty mild and pleasant. I taste a lot of coconut and a bit of fruitiness. I’m not sure I’d guess pineapple specifically. I wouldn’t order this, but I’m enjoying my cup much more than I expected.

drank Peach Zing by DAVIDsTEA
1592 tasting notes

This is pretty light, fresh-tasting, and refreshing cold. It’s a little peachy, and the fruit is blended nicely with a really pleasant ginger. There’s no tartness, just nice fruitiness. The resteep was mild and delicious. Even when I oversteep this, it doesn’t get tart or weird. This is a blend I’d totally get again on sale. It’s quite heavy, so my 2 oz only made a few cups.

drank Tangier Things by Brutaliteas

I taste some sour red fruits and some coconut. It’s decent cold, but not amazing. It’s a little too tart, and though I bought this 1 oz bag in December, it tastes like the coconut is already starting to turn. I guess I finished my bag just in time!

Hmm it’s hard to describe what I think of this tea. I guess the main word I’d use to describe it is…unnecessary? 52teas does a delicious genmaicha, and the candy cane is really refreshing and nice. I’m just not convinced the two need to be paired. In some sips, they went together fine, but in others the roastiness and mint seemed sort of at odds. The only flavors I get are that bright, sweet mint and the toasted rice, but I’d prefer them separately.

drank Cherrie by Brutaliteas

The black tea is a little harsh, and that’s the main thing I notice. I allowed this to cool to room temperature and added sweetener and milk. I feel like that improved the flavor a lot. Now I can taste a mild, but pretty fresh tasting cherry flavor. I still don’t really like the way it mixes with the black tea. I wish the flavoring were stronger and the black tea were a little better. I also didn’t taste any chocolate at all.

This is my favorite black tea I’ve had from Necessities for sure. It’s a great mix of woody desserty cinnamon and maple. The black tea is a nice base for it. The flavors are decently authentic and tasty. With sugar and milk, it’s so tasty and wonderful.

The first time I had this, I thought it was a little more thin and metallic than I’d prefer. I tasted green banana, but really no butter or bread. I’m drinking this for the second time, and again I taste a lot of green banana, but the base tea isn’t really combining in a smooth and tasty way. And I’d prefer a more caramelized banana flavor. Still no butter or bread, unfortunately. I definitely prefer other 52teas banana teas.

Unlike most people, I despise banana bread. I like bananas and banana sandwiches and bananas in my smoothie, but banana bread can ship right off.

I like zucchini bread and other quick breads, though. Banana bread just tastes…like sadness and struggle. With soft rot.

I don’t like ripe bananas, so I’m not a huge banana bread fan either ha ha. :P

drank Vanilla Chai Matcha by DAVIDsTEA
1592 tasting notes

I really didn’t enjoy DT’s chai matcha, so I was a little worried when I opened my 2 oz bag of this one. Luckily, the flavor profile seems to go in a totally different direction. Whereas the other one was red hot cinnamon, this one is more difficult to describe. I taste mostly matcha with a bit of flavoring, but I really can’t tell what it’s supposed to be. Maybe it’s a bit cookie-ish? It’s not a favorite, but there’s nothing bad or too weird here either. The flavoring is quite mild.

drank The Tart of Ruin by Brutaliteas
1592 tasting notes

Fruity black teas will never be my thing. I just prefer fruit with herbal or green teas. I can’t really tell what fruit it’s supposed to be – maybe blueberry? I liked it more with milk and lots of sweetener. I taste the fruit and a bit of the tea, and it’s pretty pleasant like this, but I wouldn’t order it.

drank Plum Pryanik by 52teas
1592 tasting notes

I don’t taste any plum, but I notice mild spices on a nice rooibos base. This tastes pleasant, but not special. The second time I had this, I had it with no milk so that I could taste the flavors a little better. I guess I can see maybe a hint of plum? Not really though. It’s similar to other flavored rooibos blends I’ve had before, maybe the caramel monkey bread from forever ago?

I always drink flavored tea, and preferably caffeine-free or black. I’ll try just about anything though! Let me know if you’re interested in a swap!
