Oddly enough, with this glorious cup of goodness, the marshmallow cream introduced itself with a nice surrounding black tea base in the very first sip and the tangerine citrus presented in the after sip. Perhaps my experience with this tea is a bit different than my first review of it because I added the slightest smidge more leaf and steeped today just a bit longer than I usually do. So, I don’t know whether this particular base is more finicky than 52teas usual lovely black base blends, or the stars need to align themselves for me to have a perfect cup of this. Today’s cup was pretty close to perfect. I have a couple more spoons of leaf, so the experiment continues.
