drank SBT: Root Beer Float by 52teas
771 tasting notes

Iced tea of the weekend.

You all already know I love root beer. And there is nothing better than a fresh root beer float with vanilla ice cream.

Made this as per usual package directions. Added 1 tsp of brown rock sugar.

I definitely get root beer. Not thick and foamy rootbeer, but more thick and cloying rootbeer, if that makes sense. It is a bit sharp. Like some other reviewers I am not getting much float part. Next cup I may try to add a bit of milk or cream to see if that brings out any of that float flavour. I think it may also need a bit more sweetener.

I have had 52 teas Root Beer Float and Butterbeer and I think that both were better, hot and iced, than this SBT version.

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.
