I had an obscenely sinful amount of fun with this tea. I love the “cola” effect and the blend of flavors. I really have not had a tea like it. I could almost feel the splash of carbonation on my face. It’s a great blend. I may try the carbonated soda recipe that 52teas has presented but I think I would cut the sugar by at least half. My tea stood up to a second brew with no loss of potency, so I can make it last longer.

I don’t know if tea purists will appreciate this one; I, on the other hand, love strange and unusual combinations and blends and this is one of the best, in my opinion, of the always interesting, always loveable, and often outrageously great blends of 52teas. I just paid them for a 6 month program once I tasted this tea, so you can tell that my love is sincere.

Aw shucks. You’re making me blush!

Thanks for the kind words. I’m so happy to hear it when people enjoy our teas.

Incidentally, I wouldn’t cut the sugar too much on that tea soda recipe. Have you ever tried to drink plain carbonated water? It is very, very, very bitter. You might experiment with alternative sweeteners, but not making it very sweet to begin with will leave a bad taste in your mouth, literally.

You could always blend it w/ the stevia that they sell.

Bio

I really love big, bold, brash teas. Smokiness enthralls me. I don’t seem to do subtle.
I don’t do rooibos.

My rating system:
0-30:
Never again in a hundred million years

31-55: This tea probably has some redeeming qualities but I won’t would not seek it out again.

56-70:
Shows some promise but also has a fundamental flaw. I probably owe these a second taste but am unmotivated.

71-80:
Good with at least one strong quality; I probably would not buy it but would drink it cheerfully.

81-90: Worthy contenders; they might be ranked 100 on somebody’s else’s scale. I like them a lot but have not fallen in love. Will probably buy and use.

91-95: These are the true loves, the chosen ones, the ones I dream about and crave. Unless they are in a limited edition—la! how you tease me!—I will always keep in my cupboard.

96-100: I cannot be separated from these teas and would develop a panic attack if I were to run out.
