59 Tasting Notes
I received this tea as a free sample from Tea Guys. Overall it’s a mild flavored tea. It grew on me the more I drank, but I’m not sure I’d drink this on a regular basis. Sassafras is the strongest flavor that comes through, but it’s a well-balanced blend overall. That’s impressive considering root beer is a difficult blend to do well. It seems like it would make for a good afternoon tea and might appeal to people who prefer coffee and/or soda over tea.
Herbals are my least favorite category of tea. But I’ve had this in my office all winter and have gone through several boxes since I first discovered it. I’d recommend it for those who don’t usually like herbals or who are looking for something a bit different in their herbal blend. The combination of the four berries blends well and is much smoother than herbals tend to taste.
Was really excited to try 52teas for the first time. I love toffee, so I bought this tea right away when I saw it on their website. I thought the smell was chocolatey but I didn’t really get a Heath Bar smell. When I steeped I didn’t get any chocolate or toffee taste. And, am I crazy? If someone had just given me this cup of tea I would have sworn it was flavored to taste like hot chocolate. Hmm…will try again in a few days. Will hold off rating for now…
