This seemed a bit darker today than other brews I’ve made. I have to admit that I love the bits in this blend. There are giant banana chips and coconut flakes. I think that this version of additions is so much better than Adagio and Teavana. Adagio additions, for the most part, do not seem to add or change enough of the flavor to be included (i.e. flower petals in small amounts). Whereas Teavana is probably 80% additions 20% tea in some blends. The blending used in this 52 teas blend is much closer to what I find to be ideal. It adds to the flavor, looks great, but also doesn’t feel overwhelmed or overpriced. So good job Frank! I really recommend this company to anyone who hasn’t tried them yet. I’ve never been let down.
