drank Butterbeer by 52teas
82 tasting notes

I have seen people giving rave reviews to 52teas.com all over Steepster, so I knew that the tea would be good, but I’ve been holding off because I have so much tea. But then Butterbeer.

I don’t think I can possibly explain how much of a Harry Potter fan I am. I started reading right before the Goblet of Fire came out and was addicted every since. I went to midnight release parties, I read every book with my two best friends and then we talked and laughed and cried over them together. I’ve written fanfiction (yes, I am admitting that). I got in on the Pottermore beta just to find out my house (Ravenclaw represent!). I don’t think I will ever outgrow these books, and I don’t even care.

So when I checked 52teas.com and found out that Butterbeer was an option, of course I had to order some.

This is how good it is. I got the package today, brewed it, took one sip and then immediately went and ordered another pouch. Now I’m sitting here sipping a second cup and munching on a pumpkin cookie (because Harry Potter!) and debating ordering a third pouch just in case I can’t live without it. Why didn’t I order two more?

Anyway, I guess I should actually get around to talking about the tea. It smells amazing, like a root beer float with some licorice aromas. And in fact, I can taste the root beery flavors when I drink it — along with very nice black tea, a hint of licorice and a smooth butteriness and that might not even be a word but it fits perfectly — and it FANTASTIC. Seriously, if every one of the teas from 52teas is even half this good, I can see why they are so popular.

I’m seriously considering never drinking any other tea ever again. No, really.

I bought two pouches, one for my oldest daughter who started screaming, “I want Harry Potter tea!” like a five year old as soon as I sent her the link, the other for her boyfriend in Northern Ireland. Sounds like I should have purchased one for myself…

I ordered a pouch a couple of nights ago – I’ve been thinking ever since that if it is as good as I’m expecting I may have to beg Frank to blend up a pound for me. I’m really looking forward to this coming in the mail!

LiberTEAS

I am a huge Harry Potter fan too… I’ve read the books several times, and on the days of release, my husband wasn’t allowed to come home from work without the book. LOL The world basically stopped for the next day, because I did nothing except read until the book was finished. I don’t think I even paused long enough to make a pot of tea!

52teas

I just ordered some supplies I need for this today. It will probably be a couple of weeks before I get what I need to reblend this. My flavors guy is good, but he’s kind of slow. :( I’m so glad everyone is enjoying it.

So, LiberTEAS: Does the tea get the same treatment as the book? Have you received yours yet? (It went out Friday) I’ll be excited to read your review.

CHAroma

OMG, we are the exact same person! Hahaha! I had the exact same Harry Potter experience as you: started just before GOF came out, went to midnight release parties, took one sip of this tea and immediately bought another pouch, the whole shabang! Hahahaha!! I’m so glad you love this tea too. But of course you would, you’re me! ;)

PeppermintPlant

ashmanra: It really is super delicious! Maybe your daughter will share with you?
mrawlins2: Yeah, I am already plotting to get a couple of tea-drinking friends hooked so that when I run out, I have people to split a wholesale order with, lol.
LiberTEAS: Yes! I think my favorite part about the books was knowing that so many other people were sitting and reading at the same time as me, and that when I finished I’d have people to talk to about it. Even though I would sit and read the entire book straight through the night I got it!
52teas: It’s amazing (or maybe magical, hehe). I can tell I’m going to be ordering a lot of other teas from you in the future!
CHAroma: Oh my gosh, we need to be friends now! :D I’m glad I’m not the only one who went straight for my wallet on first sip.

DaisyChubb

oo I’m QuillSnidget27003 on Pottermore if you want to be friends… just sayin ;)

DaisyChubb: how is the whole Pottermore thing going? I frequented the Warner Bros. Harry Potter Discussion Group for a long time, but stopped after the last movie came out. I have all the books too and have read them at least 4times each, but that was some time ago. Being part of the HP family on WB was great fun.

Hope someone lets me know when and if the tea becomes available again. Snape is good! Snape is not evil! lol

DaisyChubb

I love me some Snape, he was always one of my favourite characters.

Pottermore is fun! It keeps me busy at work on my 15 min breaks – they only have the 1st book and 4 chapters inthe second book up, but it is pretty fun to relive the stories through the little short adventures.

My favourite part, though, is the extra stuff by J.K. Rowling! She writes tidbits that aren’t in the books and extra details, and they are so rich!

CHAroma

@DaisyChubb, I just joined Pottermore myself and tried to add you as a friend! I’m IceQuill30499. :)

PeppermintPlant

Oh, sorry! I’ve had a crazy couple of weeks and haven’t logged in. I’m RookQueen211 on Pottermore. :) I’ve added you both as friends, if that’s OK.

PeppermintPlant

And I really love the extra info about the characters and their histories and the lore and world. It’s really great.

Profile

Bio

I love tea! I still don’t know very much about it, though; I know what I like and what I don’t, and that’s about it.

Aside from tea (and food), I enjoy crafty stuff, writing, reading and playing with my cats.

About my ratings: I need to go through and redo them, because really I just sort of use that slider as a ranking system and the numbers for a lot of the teas I’ve done notes for don’t accurately reflect how I actually feel about them. :/
