drank SBT: Bubblegum by 52teas
1199 tasting notes

Oh, this is my 400th tasting note! Hooray!

I wanted to log this badly so sorry Frank, if you need to give it a legit description that isn’t just me copying the Cotton Candy one and changing it to bubblegum, lol

I followed the directions on the package for steeping the whole bag in 2 cups of water then pouring it into a pitcher and adding enough water to get it to 2 quarts. I love the packaging! I was surprised at the size of the bag in there.

At first I thought I might have let it steep a little too long because I had to heat up my jams to get them to actually set and of course both the water and the jam was ready at the same time. I let it cool off a bit more while I made some blueberry jam for something different (I am so mad, I have used the entire jar of pectin I bought. It said it’d make 22 jars. I’ve made 16! Now I need more to finish off the peaches!)

I tried it without agave at first, and my fears about oversteeping were negated; but it just wasn’t bubblegum sweet enough. Since I normally can’t chew gum without my jaw acting up, I love that bright pink, super sweet stuff. After agave, it was PERFECT. That is exactly what it tastes like if it included black tea. The base here is nice, because it lets the flavor shine through without being too astringent or anything else. But at the same time you know you’re drinking black tea. Awesome balance.

I’m glad I already ordered more of these, and I saved the bag to resteep again later on!

BTW, I’m glad you liked the packaging. I think next time we’re going to use some bags that are just a little bigger. It was just a bit of a squeeze to get those teabags in there. LOL. We made up 64 of each of the eight varieteas to start. I thought we would never get finished. :)

Thank you everyone! Your comments made my day :D

I can imagine it was a bit difficult! I liked that it was nice and compact, without ever thinking “this has to make enough tea for a pitcher.” Easy to open, and then surprise, this whole bag fit in there!

I am already almost through half the pitcher because it’s that good ahhh.

CONGRATS!!! WOO HOO! I will nab some of this tea too!
