drank Butterbeer by 52teas
1848 tasting notes

I ordered this because my eldest daughter is a Harry Potter fan and threw a fit when she heard about the blend! She is not, however, a black tea fan. In fact, she practically hates the stuff! She began drinking green tea for health less than a year ago but still had not made friends with black. Nevertheless, the Butterbeer we must have!

I made a pot after lunch today when daughter came to visit. The dry leaf has quite a unique aroma. There is a sharp high scent that at first reminded me – not unpleasantly – of camphor. But really, it was overwhelmingly a root beer aroma, and it had the strong, natural scent of the many, many sassafras roots I tugged out of the ground in my mother’s yard.

There is such a great, pure, natural root beer flavor to this. Don’t think of cheap soda, think artisan, old fashioned, natural flavors root beer. My daughter said if we added milk and vanilla we would probably be convinced we were having a root beer float.

One cool thing was that my daughter really liked it! The next cool thing was that my iPad dinged a notification just as we finished our pot of tea and it was a message from her boyfriend in N. Ireland saying that the box of tea I mailed him had arrived today and he had just had a cup of Butterbeer and loved it! He loved it so much that he said if all the teas in the box we’re as good as this one, then he would count himself very fortunate. To quote him, “I am hugely impressed.”

So, Frank, can we start begging, wheedling, pleading, for this one to come back somehow?

No need for begging, wheedling or pleading. This one IS coming back. I’m just waiting for some supplies to come in. Will probably have more on the site in the next week or two. In the meantime, you might want to check out our Grab Bag Special. http://www.52teas.com/2012/07/14/grab-bag-special/ :)

No no! Make her hold her breath and stomp and kick on the floor!

LiberTEAS

And in this grab bag… is there a possibility for teas I’ve not tried?

52teas

I don’t know if we HAVE anything you haven’t tried. LOL

LiberTEAS

no, probably not. Just kind of wondering if you’ve uncovered some long lost anise biscotti blend or something. :)

52teas

If I can clear out some of my inventory, I might be able to reblend some of those past blends. :)

LiberTEAS

that would be awesome.

Dylan Oxford

Hehe, so its $20 to vote for you to reblend some teas I missed, eh? ;)

ashmanra

Awesome, Frank! I bet I will be sending more of this one to Ireland! :) it really is great. I loved what Gav said…“I am hugely impressed.” That’s coming from an Irishman who drinks a LOT of tea! :)

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about five years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
