8 Tasting Notes
I was so excited when I scratched off the sticker for this tea, and when I opened it, BOOM coconut. so, while I did pick out the larger pieces of coconut (I’m not patient enough to get the smaller pieces) and tried this tea, it wasn’t something that I’d drink again. but I would like to try more banana-y teas in the future.
AHH! Yes, okay, so I’m not a fan of rooibos really. BUT. THIS. TEA. I wasn’t really expecting much of a ‘soda-y’ flavour, but this had one?? it reminded me a little of a cream soda (which is my favourite kind of soda!) but with the addition of honey and cranberry/citrus. so good! I wish I saved some for a cold brew, but was distracted. oh well.
I may be at a slight disadvantage (or maybe an advantage?) as I’ve never tried any teas from 52teas that weren’t blended by Anne. I say this just because I noticed in other reviews that mentioned that this is a reblend and ???? yeah.
so, that being said, this was a wonderful start to the 12 Teas of Christmas. I loved the buttery-ness of the green tea and the PEARS and lingonberries. I tried this both hot and then cold brewed overnight, and both were great. I may have preferred this hot if only because the pear pieces were warm and a+ for eating after steeping.
