Hmm it’s hard to describe what I think of this tea. I guess the main word I’d use to describe it is…unnecessary? 52teas does a delicious genmaicha, and the candy cane is really refreshing and nice. I’m just not convinced the two need to be paired. In some sips, they went together fine, but in others the roastiness and mint seemed sort of at odds. The only flavors I get are that bright, sweet mint and the toasted rice, but I’d prefer them separately.

I’m an event planner who always has multiple mugs of tea beside me. Hobbies other than tea include board games, video games, cooking international dishes, science fiction, hiking, jigsaw puzzles, tap dancing, reading, listening to podcasts, and playing with my troublesome kitties.

Favorite flavors: dessert flavors, nutty, melon, mint, strawberry, anything rooibos-related.

Don’t prefer: Smoky, rosemary, savory flavors, floral (other than lavender), plain tea.

I always drink flavored tea, and preferably caffeine-free or black. I’ll try just about anything though! Let me know if you’re interested in a swap!

My ratings are kind of meaningless, but basically
90-100 pretty perfect
80-89 really good
70-79 good, but not the best
60-69 okay, but probably not for me
1-59 varying degrees of dislike
