drank Butterbeer by 52teas
47 tasting notes

I’m enjoying a cup of this “iced” in my office today. That is to say steeped in a small amount of hot water, allowed to cool, then topped off with cool water from my water cooler. It’s a complex flavor. Rootbeer kind of hits your nose first, the first taste is all black tea, made a little stouter with the addition of chicory, but then you get the buttery-root beer on the back of your tongue and a hint of sweet licorice on the tip of your tongue. I did have a sip of it while it was still hot, with similar results, but the flavors are more pronounced when it’s chilled. I think as a hot tea it would be really awesome with some cream and sugar. As an iced tea, it’s quite an adventure just the way it is. I’m thinking I will have to make another cup. Oh, and the leaf smells amazing, like something from a dream: root-beery, buttery, licoricey—very exotic scent when they are all combined. I could just leave my nose in the package and smell it all day. I steeped it using hot water from my water cooler. Not sure how hot it is, probably at least 190.

Frank, will Mango Black be back this summer?

Yeah, I should write tasting notes more often. Just so much to do. LOL. Speaking of which, and to answer Ashmanra:

I’m afraid there are no plans to bring back the Mango this year, but I am putting the final touches on our Summer 2012 iced tea series. This year we are doing 2-quart teabags. I THINK I’m going to have the last of them packaged and ready to post on the website later this week.

(Lots and lots of packaging with this)
