I seem to be gravitating to the 52Teas blends that I haven’t written reviews for yet, even if I think I’ve already written a note.   But I haven’t written a note for this and neither has anyone else…. it’s time for a note – this seems seasonally appropriate!  I think this from annie when she sent a few 52Teas blends a couple years ago thanks again!  Though I have no idea what a Lingonberry is… I don’t think I heard of lingonberry until this blend.  Really, I could never taste anything specifically differently lingonberry here, whatever that flavor might be.  Google is telling me they are like cranberries and taste tart – but I don’t taste anything like that here.  The apple lends to a chamomile flavor, the chamomile lends to the apple flavor.  The perfect blend of spices here with cinnamon, cloves and ginger, however I wish they would appear in the flavor more.  The second steep especially tasted like a plain cup of chamomile, despite the very long steep. 
Steep #1  // 1 1/2 teaspoons for full mug // 18 minutes after boiling  // 2 minute steep
Steep #2  // just boiled //  10 minute steep

Lingonberry tastes almost exactly like cranberry to me, though the berries are smaller. I like lingonberry jam on my toast. :D

Courtney

I love lingonberry! We keep the jam on hand at all times.

Thanks for the flavor confirming, Cameron – I think you have a fridge full of jams. I wish I had a fridge full of jams. haha. :D

I should really start making jam… Then I can send it to all of my Steepster pals. ;)

Ikea has a really good Lingonberry Jam.

I’ll have to try that, I really liked their lingonberry drink syrup. :3

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

I’m always in search of: Hattialli, Qu Hao black, Jin Jun Mei, teas using marshmallow root.

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), turmeric, bee pollen, charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. (Or as evidenced by the great computer hiatus of 2019, something happened to my computer.) :D

Happy sipping!
