3217 Tasting Notes
Just opened this today… another victim of having too many teas (things get misplaced and I forget I ever had them!) Anyhow, this tastes much like Boo-Berry Cotton Candy, with an added custardy/creamy aspect. So in other words, pretty yum. Sweet candy blueberry mixed with cream and a nice smooth green base (with a short steep, of course).
Hmmm, so I have some new-52teas “Black Currant White Peony”, and I think this would technically be the right entry to log it under, but I’m not sure, since every other entry is from at least 4 years ago!
Anyways, I hated the original version of this tea (gave it a 45) as the leaf tasted/smelled like play dough. No such issue with this reblend, but I’m not sold on it. Apparently black currant white teas just don’t work for me. Upping the rating, but really not a fan, unfortunately.
I think I sipped down the last of my last Frank-pouch of this the other day (maybe I’ll report on that later, maybe not), but this is a review for the new 52teas version. Which, as it turns out, I liked better. I never really cared for the original, although many other people did, but the reblend is pretty delicious. A nice black breakfasty tea with great sweet maple flavour.
Picked up a bonus 50g of this tea on April 1st, because I actually really like it. The tea description suggests that it’s addictive – it’s kind of true! This last cup definitely had more jasmine – kind of like a sweet jasmine custard. Can’t taste the green tea, but this is really more of a dessert tea.
Had a most delicious couple cups of this the other night. I think it may even have been from the original order I made way back like 5 years ago… but I can’t tell from the packaging (I don’t remember what the reblend looked like). Anyhow, unfortunately, nothing has ever come close to what the originals tasted like :( I can’t pinpoint exactly what is wrong though. So I will enjoy the last of this while I can!
Who knows if I have another pouch of this tea somewhere (odds are good that I do), but I sipped down a 16g pouch of this today! This is a pretty sweet herbal, bursting with mango/orange, and makes a most delicious iced tea. Hot, it’s like hot juice, which is kind of weird. I guess I drank most of this while I wasn’t logging teas – but I have definitely enjoyed it.
