Ooh la la!

I’m starting to think this tea probably wasn’t the best choice before bed (due to the chicory), but I just got my 52Teas order and couldn’t wait to brew a cuppa of this one! I’ll just start by mentioning that I’m not a Harry Potter fan by any stretch – in fact the first time I had heard about Butterbeer was at Universal Studios Orlando thanks to Harry Potter Land. So no bias there.

I do love root beer though, and that’s what attracted me to this tea. I never had a chance to try the root beer float tea from DT, so this is also my first root beer styled tea.

It’s actually pretty good! The root beer flavour is prominent and the underlying hints are quite buttery and mix well with the black tea base. I added a splash of milk, which has really enhanced the creaminess of the blend.

To me this is an oddly comforting blend. I dig.

Bio

How the story goes is that one day, a feeble, weakened graduate student decided to stop ingesting so much caffeine and additives (sugar, cream, milk) and instead headed for the land of tea.

I should probably mention that I’ve been drinking tea… pretty much since I can remember. The beauty of growing up in a still-semi-Euro family! I was introduced to green teas and pu’erhs by herbalists and acupuncturists in my teens.
