drank Brisbane Breakfast by T2
3972 tasting notes

One of my friends from work traveled all the way to Australia and returned with T2 teas for me. Unfortunately they were 100 gram boxes of tea with no way to seal the packet once opened so it took me a while to buy tins to put these in which meant it took me a while to try this. However, when I finally did, I did enjoy this tea.

As a breakfast blend m it was more brisk than I usually prefer but it wasn’t astringent which is nice. Also it was definitely a black tea with mango flavor as opposed to a mango black tea which basically means the base and the fruit were present and fairly equal in strength.

I made this and then topped it off with watermelon juice. It tastes like a jolly rancher…that fell in the grass. Not terrible but not the best. I just wish the sencha was more subtle because I don’t want vegetal jolly ranchers.

This one is really and truly awesome. Expertly captures a lemon poppyseed muffin and it is just downright delicious.

drank Raspberry Kissed Coconut by 52teas

Thank you for sharing Sil! This was a nice coconut green tea and since I had basically a whole freeze-dried raspberry in my filter, the sip ends with a lovely raspberry top note. This is much smoother than I anticipated with no grassiness from the base or lotion from the coconut. Just sweet coconut flavoring atop a light green tea base, with just a bit of raspberry. It reminds me slightly of the retired tea from DAVIDs, Fantasy Island…and I miss Fantasy Island so this is a welcome addition to my cupboard.

drank Just Peachy by 52teas

For some reason this made me nervous. I think it’s the base tea. Whatever it was, I put off drinking this for a year and now it is in my sipdown box. It is a little more green than I would like and almost floral but there is a nice stone fruit flavor. I don’t know if I am 100% sold on peach but it is fruity and floral and not anything to be scared of. Though not something I will be restocking.

So I ordered this. Then placed another order with 52 Teas and forgot I ordered this so I ordered it again. Luckily it’s a pretty tasty tea between the creamy coconut that melts into banana. It tastes a bit like banana bread to me which I am more than happy with.

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.

Tea Ratings Guide (as of December 10, 2017)
90-100 Teas I NEED on hand at all times
80-89 Teas I want to keep around for a cup every now and then
70-79 Teas I am glad I have around and can experiment with but probably don’t need more than what’s in my cupboard
60-69 Teas I would not turn down a cup of from a friend but that would probably be enough
50-59 Teas I can see why someone would enjoy but are not for me
Under 50 Teas I really did not like and most likely got dumped
