drank SBT: Cotton Candy by 52teas
46 tasting notes

Our AC is on the fritz and I think this tea is keeping me sane. It is just an amazing iced tea. A perfect rich tea and then you get that cotton candy finish, and it just makes you happy. Does me anyway. The teabags make it easy too. I just put the teabag in my 2quart pitcher, pour in a bit of boiling water from my tea kettle, and three minutes later, top it off with cool water and pluck the tea bag out for round two later. (Second steep is just as awesome as the first.

Are the prices for the iced teas for each two-quart teabag?

52teas

Yes, but if you buy $10 worth, you get 10% off. $25 or more and you get 25% off. As I just posted in the discussion forums:

FYI, regarding the pricing, these are half-ounce teabags. If you purchase $25 or more and get the 25% discount, you are paying $2.2425 each, which comes to (drumroll please…) $8.97 for 2-ounces. So instead of paying $8.99 for 1.75oz of one of our regular black tea blends, you’re paying about the same for a little MORE tea in individual hand-packed teabags which are further individually hand-packed into foil-lined stay fresh pouches. I just wanted to point that out, since I’ve had a few people mention that on the face of it, it appears pricey. Incidentally, the tea I used for the flavored blends is a PREMIUM CTC Indian tea. I could have spent 1/4 (!) of what I did on some crap tea for these teabags, but that is NOT what we are about.”

Oh, and the price includes shipping to the US.

It may seem a bit odd the way I did it, but it just worked out this way. Right now, if I sell ONE unit, it’s going to cost me $1.56 just in POSTAGE to ship it.

No complaints here, sounds good.

Can’t wait to try this one Frank! Love to read your tasting notes – it gets me even more excited.

Missy

I really like the tasting notes Frank. Keep it up. :D

CHAroma

So excited!!! I’m waiting for you to add the other teas on Steepster so I can add them to my virtual cupboard! :P I just love being organized!

CHAroma

Also just curious, how does the base for these iced teabags compare to the ones you use in the teas of the week? Is it the same or a new one?

52teas

The base tea for the Southern Boy Teas blends is a special South Indian blend specifically for iced teas. It is also a CTC tea. I think it makes a beautiful iced tea, but as indicated on the instructions, you should steep the teabags in boiling water for no more than 3 minutes.

CHAroma

Cool, thanks! Can’t wait to try these!
