drank Red Velvet Cake Mate by 52teas
75 tasting notes

So, I am wondering if I just don’t get this tea. I don’t really taste cake or red velvet cake. I added a tsp of sugar and what it really tastes like to me is the Thai tea served in Thai restaurants. I can’t get past that thought to taste the more subtle parts of the flavor. I think I need to try this again and steep it for less time to give a chance to be what it is supposed to be.

I am a mother, wife and physician who recently discovered my long lost love of tea. I swore off all coffee at the beginning of this year and have been a much happier person ever since. I have a lot to learn about tea, but I am very enthusiastic!

So far, I like black teas, flavored teas and herbals best. I’m currently working on developing my palate for oolongs so that I can better appreciate their subtle complexities. I’d like to start getting to know matchas next.
