516 Tasting Notes
I should learn not to putt ratings in my reviews, because when people go back and read my reviews and see that it’s not the rating I said previously… THE MADNESS!
I was happy to revisit this tea, but I’m sending the rest off in a swap to maison ^^ I will repurchase at a later date, as this tea is amazing (even if it does taste like banana bread without meaning to)
After many tastings and resteeps and a few more cups, I have decided that this is, in fact, my new, solid, favorite 52teas.
(I’m taking today and doing a quick re-shuffle of ratings to what I currently think of the teas, as it turns out I am too a person who falls in love on first sip but has a hard time with commitment. haha!)
This tea is the only exception. Of course, the likelyhood of it being reblended is not in my favour at the moment, but wow.
I take this tea either 2 m steep time, straight or 4 minutes +resteep latte, with Rolo Nesquik on the top to be fancy . Dang that’s fancy.
Anyyoohoo, the caramel, the cashew, the chocolate and the tea base all satisfy me on a level I haven’t quite reached with other 52teas. Thanks Frank. Post Christmas re-blend? :D
I gave this tea a try today, and I have to say I’m not a fan. Judging from the reviews I might have got a bit too much licorice in my cup!
I don’t mind licorice, but it sticks to the back of my throat in a strange way… anyways!
This tea wasn’t as minty as I was hoping, given the name. I looove mint tea with cream and spice teas with cream, so I gave it a try since this has both! It worked out pretty well, but again, a bit too licorice-y for what I was expecting.
I probably won’t go out of my way to try this one again. I’ve been having some bad tea luck lately o_o hopefully my tealish order will remedy that ^^
Okay, so I cold steeped this overnight and I HAVE to up the rating because this is a whole other monster! A delicious monster!
The strawberry has come out to plaaay! Not only that, but with an intense rich strawberry-ness with just a hint of rose and a chocolate/tea base. It’s like a fancy iced tea – what bottled iced tea should be. I am over the top happy with this discovery, and if anyone else has a potpourri problem with flowery teas (I hear ya Faith!) , try this. Holy mama. Deeelish!
