Sip Down! Slowly going through my old collection of tea. Wanted something flavored I could sweeten for ice tea and found this. There was about 4 grams left, so I filled it out with 1 gram of old laoshan green oolong from verdant; it’s a green Chinese base and laoshan oolong is a fancy green tea anyways. Brewed with half amount of water and sweetened with sugar while still hot before ice added, and combined both steepings.

This was good, but If I could do it over I’d brew it around 170, cause the astringency from the base green tea is quite strong. It kinda works with the tart zingy flavors though. I did add more sugar to help offset the astringent qualities from 5grams to 13 grams. Though I think 10 grams would have been better. It does really taste like one of this tangy fruit marshmallow salads you see every now and then. Going to get one more steep out of this to top off my half full glass. Overall good tangy brew, just mind the water temp and steep time.

This does sound like a nice iced tea blend!

I was! I can’t see it being as good warm though.

Oh my gosh, I love this one. All I can say is cranberry, pineapple, marshmallow, all pretty equally represented. I seem to like the later 52Teas green tea/fruit/marshmallow blends. Or really I loved all the green blends I’ve tried over the years from 52Teas, I guess. I wish I had more than a half ounce of this one! I probably love it because a jello salad like this one is a recipe that runs in the family. The initial steep was better because it was a shorter steep – more flavor than just the green tea taking over, which kind of happened in the second steep. Remember: short steeps. Also sipping OLD Date Nut Muffin now, and I really have to remember to mix up the pouches – there are tons of big pieces on the bottom! Date Nut Muffin is still a favorite. It was a GOOD tea day: favorites I knew were favorites and surprising new favorites. So tea spoiled!

I received this in my Farewell Frank 52 teas clearance sale grab bag. I brewed it up hot for the first tasting. I was definitely worried by the aroma of the dry leaf. I remember reading a review that said this tea tasted like cough medicine. Honestly, the odor that you get from sniffing the leaf in the bag is SPOT ON cherry cough medicine. Really off-putting. I was terrified as this tea steeped that I would end up having to toss it out. I added a touch of honey and waited a few minutes so that it would not scald my mouth, before courageously giving it a go. …& it wasn’t too bad! :) It, thank heavens, did not taste at all like it smelled. I could really define the cranberry more than the pineapple, and the marshmallow added a softness that I liked. I thought the green tea worked well with the flavours too. Not my favorite cranberry tea, but a solid offering anyhow.

Today I am having this tea cold-brewed. I think I slightly prefer it prepared this way over having it hot. You end up with more of a blend of pineapple and cranberry tossed with marshmallow in this form. The flavours meld nicely, and the green tea base compliments it as well. Nice and thirst quenching on a hot day.

I’m glad I got over my hesitation to try it and satisfied with the results :)

Not sure what happened with this one, but it smells like cough syrup to me and tastes like it too. The tea itself is very pretty with whole cranberries and nice size chunks of pineapple I think. I so wanted to like this one, but I don’t think its for me. Sad too because I bought a couple packs of it because I figured I would love it. Maybe I screwed up the steeping but I can’t say I’ll be brave enough to try it again. Oh well!

Today, I used twice as much tea, and I’m getting a lot of flavor with it. I think this is good…still not like the description, but a nice light tea. I still agree with the decision to go with a green tea on this one.

I think you liked this one way more than me :)

Yeah, I saw your review. I have a tea that I think tastes just like cough syrup (and 4 oz of it too…not happy about a minimum of 4 oz), but I like this one.
