drank Gingerbread Houjicha by 52teas
2989 tasting notes

Everybody must think I drink gallons of tea every day with all of my tasting notes. haha. Tea is about ALL I drink… very little of any other liquids. No alcohol, very little soda or juice or anything like that. Any water I drink would be in tea. I do actually eat solid food too, I promise. anyway… :D
I received this in my grabbag sale a while ago. I think it’s tastier than I expected. It’s nice to have a different base for chai flavors (though I wish there was a list of ingredients as to which spices are here. ) I like the houjicha but I can’t even tell it’s houjicha… if I had to guess I’d say it was a very light black tea. Everything here makes for a very tasty combination! I wouldn’t mind something extra to make it a little more special than just chai though… like a cookie icing flavor of some kind. Just the right amount of spices for this base. I think two teaspoons is just right.
Steep #1 // 2 teaspoons for a full mug // 20 minutes after boiling // 2 1/2 minute steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // 3-4 minute steep

Hi! I love tea and trying new ones – it adds a bit of variety to my day! Books, music, TV & movies are my thing… and tea, of course.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), turmeric, bee pollen, charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. (Or as evidenced by the great computer hiatus of 2019, something happened to my computer.) :D

Happy sipping!
