drank Pot O' Gold by 52teas
807 tasting notes

I have been sipping this all day since it arrived in the mail. Its glorious. Butterscotch all the way – with a malty base tea. Excellent cooled, handles additives well.

Oh, yummmm!

Azzrian

Yeah for sure! This is one I passed up when it came out for some reason. I am glad I read the reviews again and decided to get it! I tire of any one tea quickly – I need diversity but I have sipped on this one all day and enjoyed it! The same with the cotton candy blend! :)
I mean sure later here I will want something different but so far all day it has been this! :)

Will Work For Tea

This review makes me do a “DOH!”. I knew I should’ve bought this last week when I ordered from Frank…

Azzrian

I will say if it makes a difference that it does not re-steep very well – I love Frank’s teas but most of them are on the weak side when re-steeped in my opinion HOWEVER the flavoring of this is perfect.
Tastes just like those golden disc butterscotch candies without all the sappy sugar. It is a little sweet but not like sucking on a candy sweet.
AND I am not feeling the best so if the flavor is THIS good while ill I am sure even better if I felt great.
NO astringency or bitterness either.

Azzrian

Oh and think of it this way – at least his shipping is free if you are in the US!

TeaBrat

I liked this too, cotton candy makes me nervous though. :)

Azzrian

As I tell everyone – if you get the cotton candy and don’t like it I will buy it from you :)

TeaBrat

I was never a fan of cotton candy so I’m still not convinced. ;-)

Azzrian

Ahhh well if you don’t care for actual cotton candy you probably would not like this then.

Scatterbrain

I should be placing my first order with 52teas soon hopefully, this is definitely going on the list! I wish I could’ve had the opportunity to try their teas before, I’ve seen so many blends of theirs come and go that sounded amazing…

Azzrian

Oh you will have fun making your order :) What else is on your list?

Scatterbrain

Strawberry Zabaglione (the only tea I’ve tried from them, and I loved it), Malted Choco Mate and possibly Pancake breakfast and Coconut Cream Pie.

Azzrian

I could not live without the Strawberry Zabaglione!!! OMG my fav!!!! :) Never had the others though.

Scatterbrain

Hmm, now that I look at the site again I may have to get the caramel vanilla chai and ginger ale bai mu dan as well…

Azzrian

LOL two more I have not tried although it seems i have tried many of Frank’s teas you keep hitting on the ones I have not! I would also love to try the ginger ale though.

TeaBrat

I think the ginger ale is yummmmy!

Indigobloom

feel better soon xxo

Azzrian

I want to try the ginger ale Amy
Thank you Indigobloom better today :)

@Kwinter, Pancake Breakfast is a must!!! The Ginger Ale Bai Mu Dan is also spectacular. Get that one while you still can because it’s a limited edition.

@Azzrian, I didn’t end up getting this one because I’m confused about what it is. It’s butterscotch like the candy, right? Not scotch like the alcoholic beverage?

Fjellrev

Jumping in to pimp Coconut Cream Pie and Malted Choco Mate! For me, those are musts. I love CCP iced. It’s the most coconutty iced tea. And the Malted, to me, tastes like a Caramilk bar.

I’ve been on the fence when it comes to trying Strawberry Zabaglione. And Pot O’ Gold too.

Hope you’re feeling much better, Azzrian!

Azzrian

THanks Incendiare! Get off the fence with Strawberry Zabaglione its SO good! To me it is better than Pot o Gold OR my beloved Cotton Candy – if I could have only one 52 teas for the rest of my life it would be Straw Zab!

As for Pot of Gold to answer CHAroma – its both but in my opinion more of the butterscotch for sure. Its like the SCOTCH flavor peeps out now and then but it is more subtle than the butterscotch candy flavor. It is interesting how he got both flavors in there though!

I do want to try the Ginger Ale soon and that Chocolate Malt sounds delicious!

Bio

Most of my reviews will be “snippits” of full reviews that can be found at http://sororiteasisters.com/
Posted every evening at 6 EST.
I usually try to post the exact date that the full reviews will post however sometimes post dates need changed so it may not always be correct. Generally the dates are correct however.

About Me:

Most of my reviews, although not all, will be quite favorable of the tea. This is not because all tea is excellent, but more so because I generally will not waste my time on an inferior tea. If I do not care for a tea I won’t continue to drink it let alone spend time reviewing it. If you see a review by me you basically know it is a quality tea. Granted it may not suit your specific taste buds, we all like different things, but as for a tea on the whole it is a good one, from a good company.

I am a spiritual advisor by profession.
I have two “young adult” children.
Four cats and three dogs.

Some of my hobbies include gardening, essential oil therapy, natural perfumery with essential oils, and cooking.

I look for complexity overall in any tea, dimensions to the flavors.

I believe tea should evoke a feeling, thought, emotion, or attitude.

I enjoy most all oolongs, blacks, whites, and greens.

I always love to try a good yellow tea.

I favor unadulterated teas but I do have my longings for a good flavored tea now and then so I don’t rule them out by any means!

I enjoy green rooibos don not like red rooibos.
