drank Butterbeer by 52teas
1195 tasting notes

Ok so I’m not the biggest Harry Potter fan in the world…this just made me think, have I ever even read the last book even? Oh well. And I wasn’t a fan of the movies, after two I was done. (I was in eighth grade when the first one came out omg feels like forever ago!) But the food and things like that in book series that create their own amazing worlds will always draw me in. There is an entire site dedicated to making these food items a reality!

Butterbeer has to be the frontrunner out of anything I can think of for tea, and it’s awesome. I’m drinking it ice after brewing it hot, with just a little cream and sweetener. I liked it without the additions, but it was freaking me out how much it tasted like buttery root beer. With additions, it’s more like root beer butter. The flavors taste much more rounded out. The root beer seems to pop and the butter seems more creamy.

Adding sweetener/cream also brought out the chicory and licorice just ever so slightly, along with some of the spices in the root beer and it makes it even better. It’s so unique and ridiculously awesome.

Wah if only I drank this a day earlier so I could have gotten my mom to raid my brother’s room and bring me that last book! It’s all his fault I never finished it since he took FOREVER.

Yesss, Harry Potter!

I’m so glad you enjoyed this. It was fun creating it. It’s one of those rare opportunities to create a flavor profile that really did not previously exist. Except perhaps in lots of people’s imaginations. What is this site dedicated to Harry Potter foods? Maybe I should wholesale this to them.

Oh no! I didn’t even see this one and now it’s all sold out! :( Is there a possibility of more?

Somewhere before Frank said it will be awhile before he has a chance to reblend this, because he’s missing a few bits. It has seemed to sell like hotcakes both times he posted that he had more of it available though.

Thank you for creating it, Frank! I can’t wait to make some for one of my friends sometime soon. I think I won’t even tell her what it is to completely surprise her with it!
It’s just a blog, but it’s more heavy on the Hunger Games than anything else I just noticed. For some reason I thought there was more Harry Potter stuff than just this: http://www.fictionalfood.net/category/books/harry-potter-book/
I wish there was something from the Hunger Games that would work as tea! This got me thinking about that but beyond cake there’s nothing that would really translate well into reality.

Thanks Dylan! Time to constantly check and recheck the 52teas website!

I will be bringing it back when I get the supplies in. Maybe another week or 10 days. In the meantime, I did contact the owners of that blog to see if they wanted to run a feature about the Butterbeer tea. Thanks for the link Amanda!
