drank Rainbow Sherbet by 52teas

Of course I didn’t log this tea the first time I had it…or second…of course. After that, I kind of lost it. I put it in a tote bag I took on a trip, then moved, and thought it was gone forever until I remembered the tote bag.
Over that time, the fruit flavors have really become strong and it is so delicious. I honestly just want to sit with the bag all day and smell it. I want to turn it into a perfume.
It’s really good as an iced tea, but suddenly it went from iced tea weather to hot tea weather in 36 hours here, so I had to have it hot in order not to be colder. Still good.
The easiest way to describe it? It’s like someone took a cup of black tea and melted a bit of sherbert in it. I like that even though the fruit flavors smell so strongly, they don’t overpower the tea in taste.

I love this entire set of white Nordqvist teas. When I don’t want to make loose leaf tea, I can just pop a bag in a mug, and set my Keurig to run some plain water in there. And considering how fast I can down a mug of this stuff, I wouldn’t want to spend so much time on it! This is a very light, lovely pear flavored tea. There’s a bit of other flavors in there, just to give it an extra bit of fruity flavor.
I would move to Finland to have more of this tea all the time.

drank Black Cocoa Coconut by ZenTea

I used this tea to make muffins before I even drank it. But, it was awesome in them, so it would figure it was even more delicious to drink. It reminded me of a Mounds bar in tea form. Neither flavor overpowered the other, I could taste both chocolate and coconut. Definitely tastes like it would be more indulgent than it really is. I wish it was freezing outside because I think it would make an amazing ice cream too so then it could be a bit bad!

drank Blackberry Mojito by Teavana

I like making this as a cold pressed tea. I also decided the other night to actually add rum to it. All it probably needs is a bit of club soda, a squeeze of lime, and it would be a perfect tea cocktail!

The only problem with making it cold is I don’t think it brings the mint out enough. All the fruit flavors come out quite well, and you can still tell it’s made of green tea even when a good bit of rum is added.

Preparation
Iced

so the chocolate kiss didn’t melt entirely, but oh man that made it even better. I steeped it longer this time too. I almost think I need white chocolate syrup…the experimentation will never end. and actually, I typed experiMINTation the first time and should have left my subconscious typo….so much more minty when it’s steeped longer too!

Boiling 8 min or more

When I saw a list of teas in stock, and only one White Chocolate Grasshopper was left, I hightailed it to the 52teas website and was psyched to see it was still there. Mine mine MINE.

It came today, and first thing I did was smell it…and I was kind of scared. I’ve never had a honeybush tea before, so I figured it was the problem since the mint and vanilla smelled like legit mint and vanilla…spearmint at that…yum.

So after dinner, I decided to have a cup (groaning on the way to the kitchen that I actually had to use a kettle in order to get boiling water). After brewing it still had that weirdly sweet smell.

Unlike the tea I had the day before, it wasn’t too much for my nose to handle and I really enjoyed this tea. It could use a bit more chocolate (…I’m pretty sure though I would think ANYTHING needs a bit more chocolate) but it is so good. I love mint and vanilla together. I thought maybe it would be a bit too sweet for my tastes, but it’s perfect.

Maybe I will sit one of these aerated Hershey Kisses in the bottom of my cup next time…it’s almost midnight but I want to do that right nooooow…

So you’re the one that snatched it! I must have gotten there a minute after you, and it was already gone… :(
Oh well. Maybe next time.
Enjoy your tea!
