drank White Christmas by 52teas
794 tasting notes

This is the end.. but the melody isn’t quite so dreary or final!

Day twelve: Have a wonderful day everyone!

It just started snowing here about an hour ago. I don’t think it will stick but still a very cool showing by the weather devas.

This is a very solid minty tea. It’s right up the ally of Cocomint Cream and Santa’s Secret in white peppermint creaminess. The body of the black leaves is full but if it’s not subtle enough add some milk- it makes it a super creamy coconut vanilla peppermint marshmallow.

I’m so sad to see this wonderful come to a close. Thank you for putting all of this together! There’s nothing quite as magical as being transported back to your childhood in the holidays. This twelve days of Christmas really did achieve that for me. This was my first impression of 52teas and it’s definitely won my heart in these last twelve days. :)

I started my Steepster loose leaf adventure back in 2012. I can’t say I’m completely new anymore, but I still view oolong as a magical, extraterrestrial creature that unfurls in water.

White teas, roasted/fired green teas, and the not so roasted green oolong varieties are my favourites. I enjoy the odd shu puerh too.

Currently looking for the most buttery and sweet green oolong I can find.

Ingredients/flavours I enjoy (in moderation): anise, butter, caramel, cedar, cream, grapefruit, jasmine, lavender, lemon, lilac, lime, maple, marshmallow leaves, melon, mint, orchid, pine, rice, rose, vanilla.

Ingredients/flavours I tend to dislike: apple, cocoa nibs, licorice, marine, peach, stevia

Subjective Rating System 2.0:

91-100: My absolute favourite tea. Will impulsively buy and hoard like a dragon.

86-90: A favourite tea. May have quality flaws that I choose to ignore.

76-85: A lovely tea, maybe of high quality or masterful blending, but not one I’m likely to order again.

70-75: Enjoyable, but I may have few minor problems with quality, consistency, ingredient chemistry and/or personal preferences.

50-69: Quality, consistency, blending, or personal preference problems are apparent, but I wouldn’t pass up a cup.

11-49: Varying levels of undrinkable tea. I don’t give a lot of these ratings out, since I tend to grab teas I know will appeal to me.

1-10: Nightmare tea from the chaos realms. This is last year’s low-grade bancha mixed with rancid coconut, stale cocoa nibs, over-enthusiastic hibiscus, and stevia sweetener. I’m pretty sure it doesn’t exist.
