drank Butterbeer by 52teas
829 tasting notes

This is so good that I can only imagine what the Root Beer Float tea must have tasted like. Kicking myself for not ordering that. Meh.

Anyway, I kind of flaked on this one and accidentally underheated my water – the Breville was set at 180 without me realizing it. And then I oversteeped, too. But it still tastes good. I’m drinking it plain and I get the butter/sarsaparilla notes. The only thing it’s really missing is carbonation but there does seems to be a kind of effervescence in the background. I should make this iced with carbonated water next time and I bet I’d love it that way.

Heck, I love it this way. It makes me wish more of the Harry Potter-verse were real. :)

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 4 min, 45 sec

Black 52 teas I usually brew at less than boiling temp for 2-2.5 mins max

I have come to the point (as of October 2014) where quality in tea is more important than quantity. Especially because I’m a seasonal tea drinker where hot tea is concerned, and a SLOW one to boot. I generally don’t resteep only because I’d be here all day if I did, though I do break out a gaiwan from time to time.

I adore French teas in practically every iteration, Japanese Sencha (specifically from the Uji region, as they offer the most seaweed flavor), and Dan Cong oolongs. I am trying to focus on plain teas and so companies like Verdant, Upton, and Butiki are on my favorites list.

When it comes to tea, I feel like the 10th Doctor says it best:

“Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses. "
