6355 Tasting Notes
Iced and with lemon juice. Not my favourite but made for nice pics: https://www.instagram.com/p/Ciss-JNOfYN/?igshid=MTA0ZTI1NzA=
This is one of my oldest teas and even though I love 52 Teas blackberry teas, I just never reached for this. So it sat unopened and when I finally opened it up, I am saddened to find the flavour has thoroughly deteriorated with age. The slightest berry jam note with a dash of cinnamon, a flavour that I know is a fraction of what this was before I neglected it. So this is a reflection of me, not the tea and also a PSA to at least try your teas before it’s too late!
Thank you Sil for sharing this one. I find with black teas, they’re either astringent or too brisk and I don’t like them, they’re run of the mill or they stand out as amazing. This is sort of that middle of the road one for me. Malt and sweet and nice but nothing stands out as impressive or amazing. Nice to try but also one I’m fine having that single sample of.
