I’m not a Dr. Who fan, I’ve never watched Dr. Who, I’ve never even Googled Dr. Who…I once walked by the BBC section of FYE and saw the DVD case but that’s it. I am however a huge dessert tea fanatic and buttered toffee caramel corn black tea sounds like heaven to me.

I steeped it at 212 for 3 minutes, and I find with 52teas I have to let the tea cool a bit before I get the flavor. But on the first sip I get some caramel and a fabulously delicious black tea base, I have totally fallen in love with 52teas black tea base. As it cools I get a more buttery feeling and flavor. I’m not sure I can taste the toffee, either that or caramel and toffee are too similar in a tea to be differentiated. Or they just combine and complement so well that it doesn’t matter.

This is a tea that I really enjoy, and I will be happy it’s in my desk drawer for a while, but I won’t reorder it. I really like it, but I don’t LOVE it.

Bio

Born and raised in Connecticut, went to college in Vermont, and moved back to work after a year of service.

I love sweet, decadent, desserty teas the most but I also appreciate a strong refreshing cup of green or white tea. I recently started a matcha smoothie morning, sometimes mate or black tea, then black tea and rooibos throughout the day, and whatever my little heart desires most when I get home from work!

I’m obsessed with Della Terra, DAVIDs, and 52teas because they have the best dessert teas but also have a selection of some more straight things too. Recently tried Simpson and Vail and LOVE them too!!

I don’t have a rating system, I just kind of guess. I think I should make a rating system…

85-100 I want this in my cupboard always
75-85 I like it but I’m not rushing out to buy more immediately
60-75 Probably not going to want more than the sample
40-60 I don’t like this tea, I wouldn’t recommend it, and I won’t drink it again
0-40 This wasn’t even worth the sip.

Ok let’s try that for a bit now.
