My first 52 Teas order finally arrived today. I was excited to try the flavoured matchas and the Earl Grey Cheesecake but I need to sleep soon so chose this one instead.

I don’t think I’m good at controlling the steeping of white or other delicate teas. I always forget about them or imagine the time has been much shorter than it has. So I was excited to use my new Breville One Touch, thinking it would take care of it for me. Then I realized I used about half of the amount of tea suggested. Oops!

Anyway, the spices are basically all I taste here. I can’t make out much apple or vanilla. The spices are definitely at the forefront but not really strong. I guess that could be coming from the diluted nature of this steep. Primarily what I taste is cinnamon. I’m not a huge fan of cinnamon teas. I’ll have to try steeping this stronger.

This isn’t blowing me away as I expected to happen as soon as I opened my 52 Teas package. But, I’m intrigued to try the others I ordered.
