drank Cotton Candy Black Tea by 52teas
1691 tasting notes

Oh wow. This is amazing! I had the boo-berry cotton candy the other day, but I didn’t get anything cotton candy-y out of it, so I figured I must have messed it up and didn’t rate it.

With this one? NOPE. It’s perfect. It really actually reminds me of sticky cotton candy. I made it iced, but I had a sip of it hot before I put it in the flash icer thingy and both hot and cold it is really smooth, really sweet, and makes me think of sticky tongues.

I see this isn’t a regular for 52 Teas. I hope they change this because I’m going to want more. :| But I have a full pitcher of iced tea in the fridge, and I can try to resteep my leaves tomorrow too.

I started off not liking this one and ended up ordering a bag anyways. What a great cotton candy fix!

You steep the tea in the little jug, and then dump it in the larger jug full of ice to instantly chill it. I guess I could use the larger one to just cold brew as well?

I originally bought it from DavidsTea but it looks like they no longer sell it.

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
