drank SBT: Rainbow Sherbet by 52teas
814 tasting notes

In regards to SBT ice cream flavoured iced teas, I think this one is better than the Neapolitan.

I made this one as per the directions on the package.

The dry tea bag smells deliciously like rainbow sherbet. It smells sweet but also that slight little bit of tartness that sherbet has.

The brewed tea tastes very similar to SBT cotton candy. You can tell that the taste is rainbow sherbet but the taste is not as strong as the smell. I find for the SBT iced teas, this one is much of a lighter taste, its not bad that is light, its just not in your face. You can taste the black tea, but it is not too strong and the flavouring works well with the tea. It is very refreshing. I did not add any sugar to this one.

Edit: Resteeped. Made an excellent resteep. Tastes pretty much the same as the first steep. I added some rock sugar this time around. It did sweeten it up a bit. Brought out the smallest amount more of rainbow sherbet taste. I am thinking this one would be excellent with a lot more sugar added. I’m just not in the mood for that today.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
