This tea greatly surprised me; I picked it up from a truck stop in St. Louis, MO on my way to the airport after running out of all the tea I’d brought with me on the trip. I purchased it alongside several other pouches of Revolution varieties and tried it third or fourth in line, expecting it to have the same mediocre steep I’d gotten out of the others. Not so!

The apricot and safflower flavors dominate the taste of this infusion, while the lovely floral scent was strong enough to get the stewardess to ask me what I was drinking – from a window seat! The oolong flavor is much less smoky/roasty than you’d expect looking at it, and comes through strong under the fruit flavors to be one of the more satisfying bagged teas I’ve yet to try.

This is the joint account of Cash and Chris, two American University seniors and roommates with a love of tea and a shared collection that makes two separate accounts pretty pointless. Each tasting note is signed by which one of us wrote it.

In our photo, Chris is on the left in the plaid and Cash on the right in the poncho.

Cash is studying psychology and works at the Apple Store. He enjoys drumming, overanalyzing, and hoarding.

Chris is studying criminal justice and works for the EPA. He enjoys being terrible.

Send us a message if you’d like to do a tea trade, we’re always down to try new varieties!

Cash: I am on an epic quest to acquire some of 52teas’ Marshmallow Treat Genmaicha. It sounds like literally the perfect tea to me, and I will trade ANYTHING in my cupboard for it. Seriously. Send me a message if you’ve got some to spare.
