Even though I’m a monthly subscriber to 52Teas, I still tend to stalk the website on Mondays, checking to see what Frank came up with for the tea of the week. If the tea doesn’t get posted on Monday, I find myself clicking on the website even more often on Tuesday, because I am becoming impatient. I want to know! If for some reason, Frank is later (and I suspect he does this just to tease me because he knows I am waiting), I become really impatient and have a hard time leaving the computer until I know what the tea of the week will be.

It has gotten better since I started subscribing though, I think some of the anxiety of worrying that the tea will sell out before I have a chance to buy it is alleviated with the subscription. But it doesn’t alleviate the curiosity.

Most of the time, I’m not only excited about the tea but also quite astonished at what Frank has come up with for the week! Case and point: Pancake Breakfast. Wow! But occasionally, I’m a little disappointed by the tea of the week.

If you go to the 52Teas website right now and look at different teas that appear on the homepage, most of the teas there are ones that excited me. Cotton Candy? Custard-Filled Maple Long John? Chicken and Waffles? (Oh, never mind…) and let us not forget this week’s creation: Double Chocolate Decadence. (for my birthday! yippee!) These flavors are exciting!

And there are a few that are a little less than exciting. I’ll be the first to admit that I wasn’t interested in trying the Doggy Tea. The Citrus Piledriver I wasn’t too excited about, but, that one turned out to be a big winner after trying it.

But this tea. This tea actually disappointed me when it was announced. I don’t really like grape. I like the fruit. But I don’t usually like grape flavored stuff like soda or candy. I don’t even really care for grape juice.

That being said, I have actually found some grape flavored teas that I’ve enjoyed. But that didn’t stop me from being just kind of “meh” about the announcement of this tea.

All that was before I tried it.

This is good. This tea makes Concord Grape worthwhile.

Thanks. My birthday was actually more than a week ago now, but, I didn’t give Frank a whole lot of notice about it. (less than a week, I believe)

My dear friend in Tennessee and I have invoked the “2 weeks either way” rule on birthdays. If the greeting, card, or gift falls within that time frame, it counts :)

Happy Belated Birthday, and thanks for suggesting the awesome chocolate decadence tea!!! It’s soooo good! Also, I do the exact same thing you do even though I get the e-mail updates telling me what the new tea of the week is. I’m always looking at the site anyway! :)

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:
http://sororiteasisters.com

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:
http://www.teareviewblog.com

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

*

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
