I’ve reviewed a ton of 52Teas for SororiTea Sisters and CuppaGeek. I love them and highly recommend their teas. When you purchase from 52Teas, you know you are getting a quality blend that was made with love and care from someone who has a passion for tea and tea blending.
I will admit tho, I have never subscribed to the monthly service. Shame on me! Reason? Well, I am very much against red rooibos. It is one of those ingredients that (for me) once that ingredient is in the blend, it ruins the tea. No matter what else is in it. There has only been one blend that I have enjoyed red rooibos in. I also am not the biggest fan of ginger or chai teas so basically what I’m saying is that I’m picking up what I get. I do subscribe to Handmade Tea and Plum Deluxe so I do take a gamble here and there. After this month’s box that I received.. . . I will more than likely start subscribing.
Having never rec’d a box from 52Teas before, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I loved opening the box and seeing a special note or the tea menu, outlining all the tea that was in the box and a little description of each flavor. This is a great way to learn more about what teas are in your box at a glance.
This box featured five different teas- Blackberry Zomba Green Tea, Raspberry Almond Cookie Honeybush, Rose Mango Daiquiri, Bananas Foster Black Tea, and Coconut Flan Genmaicha. My tea kettle is just itching to start prepping the water for these mouth watering teas!
My eyes went instantly to the Blackberry Zomba Green Tea. That sounded like heaven to me. Green tea, blackberries, and other organic flavors. . .sign me up. I quickly set the kettle to green tea setting and began the prep to check this tea out. This tea was amazing! Simply fabulous. Sweet yet vegetal like green tea with a gorgeous blackberry finish. Like the description says, simple straight forward tea. And wow, is it ever good. So good that I instantly emailed Anne and said I needed a larger size.
The next tea I tried was the Raspberry Almond Cookie Honeybush. Do yourself a favor. Check this tea out right now! I’m surprised there is even some of this left. This tea is just dynamite! I had talked to Anne about this tea and she told me it was good. I think she underrated it a bit by saying good. This tea has lovely fruity berry notes of raspberry with a solid nutty finish that gives you that baked cookie feel. Holy tea kettles! This tea is a winner and one that I may need a larger size of as well.
I have yet to try the remaining teas due to a crazy work schedule but I will be fixing that soon. From the experience I’ve had with these teas so far, this is a winning box. The teas are fresh and each pops with its own unique character and flavor. I’m crazy impressed with the presentation and the little menu you get in the monthly box as well. A simple touch that gives the recipient a warm fuzzy and shows that the ladies behind 52Teas care!
After this experience, I’ll be signing up for sure to start receiving this box myself. A great way to keep getting these unique and fun teas without worrying about ordering them on time and missing out. I’ve missed out on blends before. By signing up for this box, you don’t have to worry about that!
Tea is a passion that quickly turned into an obsession, very similar to my love for polka dots, the horror genre, and anything that is geeky and fun.I drink all kinds of tea and will try a tea twice to make sure I didn't bumble the first infusion.
Besides SororiTea Sisters, I'm also the blogger and genius (I use that word very loosely) behind CuppaGeek, where I review tea, books, and the horror genre.
