1720 Tasting Notes
The pineapple scent here is so fresh!! When I tried this hot, the pineapple was juicy and zingy and fresh in just the right way. When it cooled to room temperature, the honeybush took over, and there was only a hint of pineapple. I put it in the fridge, and I like it more than at room temperature, but the pineapple still isn’t as strong as when I had it hot. I also don’t really get any cakey elements? I added some milk to try to get some of that sort of element, and I think that might also be helping the pineapple come out. You know, I really really like this one. The resteep was great too. I vote for more pineapple teas (with little to no coconut presence)!!
Finally trying my final tea from this advent calendar! I procrastinated trying this one due to the jasmine, but like the other jasmine tea in the calendar, this was actually pretty good. I taste a pleasant amount of fruitiness, and the jasmine isn’t overwhelming or anything. Everything combines together well. I’m enjoying it cold. Not something I would choose, but something I don’t regret having.
The first time I had this, I thought it tasted nutty and mildly spiced and really pleasant with milk and sugar. It was a little fruity, but mostly nutty, and the spices were warming and nice. They often include this tea as an herbal option at St. James, and the second and third times I had it, it tasted really grapey, but in a nice sweet way. The apple and nuts are still there way in the background. The last time I was there, I finished all my teas early and they brought me an extra pot of this, which was a nice surprise.
The cranberry flavor here was lovely, as it always is with 52teas. It definitely reminds me of the crisp cranberry soda flavor, which is a very good thing! This tastes really fresh and lovely cold. It has just the right amount of tartness to hint toward lemonade, but I usually find lemonade too sour, so this is perfect.
I get some candylike pear and some mild spices. Everything tastes nice together. I taste some ginger and other flavors. I was craving this tea the other day and was happy to find I had one last serving left in the bag. It’s pleasant cold and is one of those rare fruity spiced teas that really works.
