1048 Tasting Notes

This is a flavor profile that my boyfriend really loves, so he drank most of this pouch. But, I had a cup and it was quite tasty! Syrupy sweet blueberries and vanilla are most dominant for me, with just a touch of cinnamon in the finish. The honey bush works really well here, adding to the cobbler aspect of the flavor.
I love blackberry and jasmine separately as flavors in tea, so I was quite excited to see the combination. This smells intensely of jasmine, but doesn’t come off as perfumey. It’s like an overgrown bush of night blooming jasmine. Love. The taste is the same as the smell- intensely jasmine. There is a bit of blackberry that sneaks in at the end. I really like the blackberry that 52Teas uses.
This tea is lovely- bits of cedar tips and rose petals decorate the twisty Ceylon leaves. I’m smelling clove and a bit of cinnamon. The flavor is mainly clove and cinnamon as well. There is a bit of rose that lingers. I’m getting some tangerine in some sips as well. No cedar or vanilla, which is a shame because I was looking forward to those flavors shining.
From Dustin’s advent. This smells so good! It actually reminds me of a chocolate drizzled cheesecake. Nice subtle chocolate flavor, with a creaminess. The little chocolate chips didn’t negatively effect the tea, which I often find with chocolate bits in blends. There’s no oiliness or artificial flavor, just a tasty dark chocolate.
I also agree with Dustin- there is a banana note that is quite interesting, and I’m getting it more and more as it cools.
