drank Walnut Fudge Brownie by 52teas
902 tasting notes

Knowing this tea was waiting for me in the Breville this morning was the only thing that forced me out of bed.

It smells just like brownies. Taste is chocolatey, with a hint of the walnuts, and smooth black tea. Doesn’t quite taste like I just bit into a brownie, but it’s definitely not far from it. Perhaps a longer steep? Still, it’s quite delicious and I’m enjoying every drop.

Oh my! Chocolate for breakfast in a Breville. I’m oh so jealous!=D

Geoffrey Norman

It has the word “brownie” in it. I must have.

Jaime

Cofftea, you don’t have a One-Touch? It was life-altering for me. I can set the timer, literally roll out of bed, walk downstairs, and pour a cup of tea. Makes waking up so much less laborious.

Geoffrey, if you like fudge and walnuts, yes, you must. If you’d like, I can send a couple of cups’ worth your way.

Cofftea

Sadly, no. I can’t afford one. I also don’t like the lowest temp is 160 and time settings are 30 sec increments so that means I can’t (due to my personal preferences) use it for whites, pu erhs, and some Japanese greens- which is a lot of my stash. I guess they’re going to make some adjustments on the next model so I’m gonna wait.

Jaime

I begged for mine as a birthday/early Christmas present from my parents. They caved, and Dad has semi-jokingly commented that I need to get insurance on it (I travel with it when I visit them). I’d personally like a longer steeping time. It only goes as long as 10, and when I resteep teas, I’ve steeped as long as 15 minutes. I’d also like to be able to buy additional baskets, so that I don’t have to clean one out that I want to resteep just to have something different.

Cofftea

How long does the water stay at a given temp? Like if you want to steep the mango chili green bush for 10 min at boiling, is it still boiling after 10 min?

Jaime

I do steep the mango chili for 10, and whilst it’s not a rolling boil, it’s pretty close temperature-wise. I’ve not stuck a thermometer in after it’s done to check, though.

Cofftea

Could you just reset the timer when basket goes up and let it steep for another 5 or however long you want? I do that now anyway since the water cools too much.

Jaime

That’s usually what I do. Or I heat the water, and lower the basket without using the timer feature. Then I just use a regular timer, and raise the basket when it’s done.

Bio

My love of tea started in 2001, whilst in an internship in London, England. I shared an office with a lovely man who would make me a cup of tea every morning without asking me if I even wanted it. I drink my tea neat now, because I’ve yet to find the sugar/milk combination that lives up to Pablo’s.

I drink any and all kinds of tea, and love trying new brands/varieties/flavors.
