drank SBT: Mango Peach by 52teas
2238 tasting notes

This has been my iced tea of choice the last couple of days. Straight off, I agree with JoonSusanna about this. When I drank it yesterday, I mostly got a delicately peachy, maybe slightly apricotty taste. Today, after it spent last night in the fridge, I’m tasting more mango. Either way, it tastes great!

The flavouring here seems more delicate and natural than some of the other SBTs. Not that any of them are overly fake or synthetic tasting, but Rainbow Sherbet does not exist in nature. This one tastes exaclty like fresh, ripe, juicy fruit. Like I actually added squeezed juice was to the tea, which (of course) I didn’t.

I brewed this in the normal way — nearly 3 minutes in 2 cups of boiling water, then topped up to just under 2 litres with cold water. I’ve not had a dud yet, so I guess that really is the best way to do it. The tea base here is a little more noticable than usual, maybe because the flavouring is more subtle. That’s by no means a bad thing, though, as it’s delicious in itself.

Another winner, and another I’ll definitely repurchase this summer!

Hi :) I’m Sarah, and I live in Norfolk in the UK. My tea obsession began when a friend introduced me to Teapigs a good few years ago now. Since then, I’ve been insatiable. Steepster introduced me to a world of tea I never knew existed, and my goal is now to TRY ALL THE TEAS. Or most of them, anyway.

I still have a deep rooted (and probably life-long) preference for black tea. My all-time favourite is Assam, but Ceylon and Darjeeling also occupy a place in my heart. Flavoured black tea can be a beautiful thing, and I like a good chai latte in the winter.

I also drink a lot of rooibos/honeybush tea, particularly on an evening. Sometimes they’re the best dessert replacements, too. White teas are a staple in summer — their lightness and delicate nature is something I can always appreciate on a hot day.

I’m still warming up to green teas and oolongs. I don’t think they’ll ever be my favourites, with a few rare exceptions, but I don’t hate them anymore. My experience of these teas is still very much a work-in-progress. I’m also beginning to explore pu’erh, both ripened and raw. That’s my latest challenge!

I’m still searching for the perfect fruit tea. One without hibiscus. That actually tastes of fruit.

You’ve probably had enough of me now, so I’m going to shut up. Needless to say, though, I really love tea. Long may the journey continue!

My rating system:

91-100: The Holy Grail. Flawless teas I will never forget.

81-90: Outstanding. Pretty much perfection, and happiness in a cup.

71-80: Amazing. A tea to savour, and one I’ll keep coming back to.

61-70: Very good. The majority of things are as they should be. A pleasing cup.

51-60: Good. Not outstanding, but has merit.

41-50: Average. It’s not horrible, but I’ve definitely had better. There’s probably still something about it I’m not keen on.

31-40: Almost enjoyable, but something about it is not for me.

11-30: Pretty bad. It probably makes me screw my face up when I take a sip, but it’s not completely undrinkable.

0-10: Ugh. No. Never again. To me, undrinkable.
