drank Weeping Angel Tea by 52teas
357 tasting notes

Backlog from yesterday.

I bought this tea because I actually really love movie night from davids tea so was excited to try 52s caramel toffee popcorn. I read some notes so that I could get an idea for the ideal preparation method and I did about 3 mins at a little under boiling. Then I let it cool a bit. I could definitely taste the toffee-ish flavors, but no popcorn. So I added a little salt to see if that would bring out the popcorn, no luck. And then it just tasted strange.

Anybody have any suggestions for this one? I want to like it, but I couldn’t tweak it quite right. Suggestions?

Honestly, I got the best flavour from this one after it had cooled and sat by my bed overnight. Other than that, I actually am not the biggest fan of it, as it turns out, because the flavouring just isn’t prominent enough.

I would suggest cold brewing it—after a long (12 hour) steep, it tastes like those buttered popcorn jellybeans to me!

I love those jelly beans!!!! I have to try that! So this is a silly question, but what’s the best way to cold brew?

I like to cold brew overnight in a regular tall drinking glass (with an aluminum foil cap to keep scent contamination at bay), though I know a lot of people love mason jars for cold brewing. Fill it up with filtered water and add a teaspoon or two of leaves-as much as you’d use for 8oz of hot water, since it’ll sit for such a long time you can go light on the leaf. You can also add sugar if you like, it will dissolve overnight. Pop it in the fridge, let it sit for 10-12 hours, then pour it through a sieve or similar device to get out the leaves. Voila, iced tea! You can obviously heat it up as well though haha

I’ll give that a go tonight. I have a few I may try that with as well. Thanks!

No problem! Cold brewing is actually my favorite method for making tea.

Bio

I love tea. And I love beer. I spent my twenties thoroughly enjoying all that beer has to offer but now that I’m into my thirties and a stay at home mom of 2 little kids and 1 big kid, I spend more time enjoying tea.

I joined steepster in Feb 2013 and it’s crazy how much my tastes have changed since joining. Before, I liked cream and honey in all teas and loved mostly dessert blacks. Now I almost rarely drink them, but enjoy them from time to time. What I love more than anything are straight rich black teas, Fujian, Laoshan, Rizhao, etc… I also love pretty much any black tea that the little leaf hoppers have gotten their teeth on.

I’m still not too into the green/white/oolong varieties. I keep trying to but my tastes are evolving pretty slowly on that front.

Overall, I just enjoy tea. Something about it that just settles me.
