Wow cool – I’m the first to review this one. I don’t think I get a wizzo button for that or anything but its still kinda cool. :)
This is definitely not lacking in the caramel flavor department and as I have said before Frank knows how to make the cheesecake blends outstanding so it was a no brainer to order this when I saw it go on sale!
Creamy cheesecake goodness with plenty of yummy caramel in a nice black base that stands out as well.
Way to go Frank! Keep the delicious creations coming!
I will say that as this cools it becomes a little bitter but I was not planning on it cooling – you know things happen – distractions take over and before you know it your nice hot yummy dessert tea is getting an attitude because you neglected it.
It happens.
I don’t know if I would want this iced or cold brewed as it is so delicious hot but I am sure that it would be good – I think it was just accidentally allowing it to cool at room temp that caused the bitterness.
I have had two cups today hot and it was perfection!
Every cheesecake blend I have had from 52 Teas has been amazing!
I hope he brings back Cherry Cheesecake Genmaicha!!
Anyway if you love caramel and you love cheesecake GET SOME! As of right now there are only 5 left on his site!

Just ordered this! Sounds awesome

Azzrian

Its quite decadent!

Kittenna

Blah, this is one I want. I will hope that when I have time to swap again, someone will still have some left.

Azzrian

I can send some your way if you want … pm me your address again though as I would have to dig around to find it and Im that lazy. :)

Sil

I’ve got an order of this coming as well Kittena :) the other half let me have it cause i told him it would sell out fast fast fast! (not that it has but whatever)

Frolic

This sounds wonderful. Mine can’t get here soon enough

Kittenna

Azzrian – thanks, but I think I’ll hold off on the offer for now! I’ll try to nab some of Sil’s when we meet up again, but if not, I’ll take my chances that some swap partner in the future has some left :) So much tea…

Azzrian

Cool cool :)

Sil

I’m always willing to take tea off eceryone’s hands. I have a long weekend with which i’m predicting that I can get through almost all of the crazy samples that i’ve received from Azz, Kittena and indigo lol not to mention the stuff i ordered.

Sil

oh Azz was going to ask how you’ve been steeping this. I’m hoping mine will come SOOOOOOON and want to start out right.

Azzrian

Uhhh I don’t know if I would say I did it “right” lol BUT I did it at 208 as that is what my zojirushi was set at. for 3 minutes. :)

Sil

it’s probably my only complaint in so far as franks teas go (though i’m sure someone will tell me that i’ve just missed something) but I wish that the entries for his teas had a recommended steeping time and temperature. I’m relatively new to his teas but unless someone on steepster has indicated what they did, i’ve got to just try any guess…

Azzrian

As far as I know Frank does not have recommendations on his teas anywhere or his site so I start with traditional brewing temps and times and adjust as needed from there.

Sil

Azzrian – good to know i’m not just missing it somewhere. Maybe I can message him to harass him into including his reocmmendations when he adds teas to steepster. It appears at one point (looking at older entries) he had times on his packaging

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.
