drank Strawberry Zabaglione by 52teas
336 tasting notes

Today my shipments from 52teas, Tropical Tea Co., AND Amanda came in. I wasn’t expecting them all at the same time! I was a bit overwhelmed. However, the smell of this one really drew me in. It’s very sweet in the bag, almost too sweet. I tried this first at about 3 minutes and 30 seconds. Very bitter! So I tried again with 2 minutes this time. It’s a bit too weak, though the flavor comes out a bit more as it cools. Somewhere between these two times will be the perfect steeping time. I will find it! This tea smells so delicious, I want to find that in the flavor as well.

I spilled some of this tea on my laptop and now the right click button isn’t working :(

:( oh no! Well I love this one iced personally.

I think my laptop just needs to dry for a bit.
I’ll definitely have to try that! Especially with the Texas 100 degree summer looming in front of me!

Try steeping it at a lower temperature. I find that the black tea from 52Teas works better with a temperature of about 200°F for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes.

Ok! I’d been having trouble with the Pancake Breakfast as well. I’m just so used to black teas being happy with around boiling temperature water.

Bio

I’ve lived in Hawaii, Mississippi, Colorado, Maryland, Texas, and California, and I’m currently in Oklahoma while the boyfriend gets his grad schooling on.

I’ve been into tea for about five years now and my favorite thing is that there is still so much to learn! I personally prefer black and oolong teas, though I love trying new teas whatever they may be.

I also knit quite a bit and sell things on my etsy when I’m not busy with school.

I really love swapping, so if anything in my cupboard catches your eye, please let me know!
