1st Day of Christmas Teas

52teas, both original and new iterations, has always been on the ball with the coconut teas but this decadent take on Earl Grey strikes gold with me. Maybe it’s the mundanity of all the cookie-cutter London Fogs from Starbucks+ that I’ve been drinking recently, or my shrinking, increasingly boring tea stash, but this rejuvenated the tea latte for me. Who knew coconut and bergamot were meant to be together?

I sadly missed out on this blend the first time around but I’m glad it showed it up in this box. I may have to order more for the office when I’m craving a smart-casual tea!

+Sidenote: someone at work was smart enough to try a Starbucks London Fog with pumps of Gingerbread syrup instead of the usual, and that is a good combo too. I’d love to see that come a live in an actual dessert tea blend.

Flavors: Bergamot, Citrus, Coconut, Cream, Vanilla

Bio

I started my Steepster loose leaf adventure back in 2012. I can’t say I’m completely new anymore, but I still view oolong as a magical, extraterrestrial creature that unfurls in water.

Ingredients/flavours I tend to dislike or stay away from: apple, cocoa nibs, marine, peach, stevia, dairy products

Subjective Rating System 2.0:

90-100: My absolute favourite tea. Will impulsively buy and hoard like a dragon.

85-89: A favourite tea. May have quality flaws that I choose to ignore.

76-84: A lovely tea, maybe of high quality or masterful blending, but not one I’m likely to order again.

70-75: Enjoyable, but I may have few minor problems with quality, consistency, ingredient chemistry and/or personal preferences.

50-69: Quality, consistency, blending, or personal preference problems are apparent, but I wouldn’t pass up a cup.

11-49: Varying levels of undrinkable tea. I don’t give a lot of these ratings out, since I tend to grab teas I know will appeal to me.

1-10: Nightmare tea from the chaos realms. This is last year’s low-grade bancha mixed with rancid coconut, stale cocoa nibs, over-enthusiastic hibiscus, and stevia sweetener. I’m pretty sure it doesn’t exist.
