From 52teas

So, you all know that I have been working on clearing out the last of my Zoomdweebie’s Tea Blends to make room for more 52teas, ManTeas, and MySweetHoneybush blends. I had a lot of teas pouched up, and I had a lot of tea waiting to be pouched. From the latter, I have created our tea of the week for this week.

I know many of you think I am crazy; I’m confirming your suspicions with this week’s blend, which is TRULY and completely one-of-a-kind and definitely a limited edition blend. I could not recreate this if I tried. In varying and unknown proportions, this tea has all of the following blends mixed into it:

Apple
Apricot
Blackberry
Blueberry
Cranberry
Cherry
Ginger
Grapefruit
Key Lime
Lemon
Lime
Mango
Orange
Peach
Pineapple
Raspberry
Strawberry
Watermelon
Ginger, Peach and Lemongrass
Tangerine
Banana
Honey Lemon
Guava
Cran-Raspberry

There are fruit peels, dried fruit, freeze dried fruit, some ginger and some lemongrass mixed in it. It is spectacularly ridiculous. I’m not sure if you will taste each of the flavors in every cup or if every cup will be a little different, but it will definitely be interesting.

Our Tea of the Week for the week of July 26, 2010

So you know I had to try this one…

Definitely very fruity. Because of the many flavors that there are, it is difficult to discern one from another… that being said, this is REALLY GOOD. The flavors are intense and I almost want to say “congested” but in a good way… sort of like a huge fruit salad consisting of the largest assortment of fruit ever.

And… I can taste the green tea too! Buttery fresh notes… just slightly vegetative. This isn’t a “fruit punch” – it is absolutely, positively a tea… with a whole lot going on!

I did take advantage of the Steepster Select offer and I will be giving the second pouch away on the SororiTEA Sisters Blog (http://sororiteasisters.com) – so watch for your chance to win it!

Cofftea

Hmmm… I just may enter that anyway lol.

TeaEqualsBliss

ok, ok…what’s the banana level in this!? LOL

LiberTEAS

I didn’t taste a lot of banana… but then, it’s difficult to distinguish one fruit from another – it’s more like one great big FRUIT. does that make sense? I think you’ll like it. :)

Cofftea

That was my assumption LiberTEAS… and my main concern about liking it… If I win the contest I think I’m gonna try making a single cup then doing a gallon. I’m thinking using more tea, even though I’m using more water would increase my chances of not leaving out a particular flavor completely. And I can always reheat a cup to enjoy it hot. :)

TeaEqualsBliss

I’ll be daring if you want to send me a sample’s worth! LOL

LiberTEAS

@TeaEqualsBliss: Surely! I’ll include it with the package that I send in the next day or two. :)

Shinobi_cha

We should be able to rate tea companies. If one could, I would nominate 52teas as the most funny. Ingredients: Yes. This is great; almost as funny as the Tuna Melt Tea.

LiberTEAS

@Shinobicha – that is one of the reasons I actually wanted to buy the tea. I laughed so hard when I first saw it. I love Frank’s sense of humor.

BAARRGGGG Steepster ate my tasting note the ONE time I forget to copy and paste before posting (insert cruse words all over the place) OMGMFINARRRRRRGGGG
Anyway – THANK YOU to the dear AlphaKitty for sharing this never to be made again one of a kind rare blend! Your a doll!
Pineapple, mango, passion fruit, guava, – TROPICAL with a spicy aroma and slight flavor.
Pretty decent stuff!
My other note was long but BAH forget it – its not like we can order it so it won’t help anyone and this is a gratuitous post OTHER THAN thanking ALPHAKITTY for sharing with me!

Indigobloom

I love this one!! wish I’d bought a packet at the time now

Rie

OMGMFINARRRRRRGGGG
^ Maybe Frank will consider naming a blend after this epic word. :D

Azzrian

LOL now THAT would be Epic!!

mrmopar

I just got my blueberry danish in today!! Mmmmm.

Alphakitty

This tea is so much fun! Glad you enjoyed it ^^

This is one of those teas I’d never buy for myself but I really wanted to try. I mean, it’s a bit risky to buy a pouch when you can’t know precisely what the flavor is going to be! However, I was super excited to see this in my grab bag because fruity greens are so good for summer and this seems like the perfect blend to experiment with.

Since each cup is going to be different in terms of flavor profile, I’m not going to give this a number rating. I’ve only cold brewed it once, but I got a wonderful cherry berry flavor, really bright and juicy and fruity. There was a hint of strawberry and blueberry, maybe currant going on in the background. Cherry was definitely predominant, and it reminded me a bit of a green-based version of DAVIDs Cherry Blossom. However, I think the “tea” part is more prominent here, which is surprising given how heavily flavored I assumed it would be. There’s a lovely butteriness going on, hints of grassy green poking through all the fruity goodness. This is really fantastic cold, super refreshing! I’m looking forward to making this a lot in the next few weeks, I want to see what other kinds of flavor blends I get!

Kittenna

I got a pouch of this too, and am interested to see what sort of flavours I get!

Sooooo my trusty meat thermometer that I use for measuring water temperature requires a new battery. Sigh. It was only a matter of time. Of course, as I type this, it occurs to me that I have a second thermometer somewhere, that was also working recently… Either way, this one was steeped at some temperature below boiling, but I haven’t the faintest idea what it might have been. Kept the infusion time low to hopefully counteract a possible temperature misjudgment.

I was kind of excited to get this tea in my grab bag, as it’s something I was interested in trying, but wouldn’t have purchased myself. The smell of the dry tea is vaguely fruity, and I think I saw a piece of marshmallow root??

I’m happy to say that I’m experiencing zero bitterness, and zero astringency, so I didn’t mess up the infusion! Initially, I’m not tasting too much beyond the green tea (a bit seaweedy, yum) and a vague fruitiness, but I swear there’s an aftertaste of what seems to initially be peach, then more strongly apricot. Yup, this is confirmed with sip #2. Definitely apricot. In fact, the most strong apricot I have ever tasted in a tea blend! Frank – make another apricot blend, because this flavouring is seriously yummy! I will admit that it’s only in the aftertaste, and not particularly strong, but it tastes like yummy dried apricot (I don’t remember seeing a chunk in my infuser, but there could be one). I will cherish my one delicious apricotty cup, since I know the rest are unlikely to be the same. SIGH.

Also, I used a generous 1.5tsp of tea for an 8oz. cup, as I usually find 1 tsp not to be enough.

Anyways, this kitchen sink thing is a super cool idea. I’d be down for trying a kitchen sink black or white too… Giving this a high rating because a) it’s good (one of the better flavoured greens I’ve tried!), and b) it’s a novel idea!

I got this is my grab bag too and am looking forward to trying it. It will be really neat to see how every Cup of this tea will be different.

Alphakitty

Ooh, a kitchen sink black with all the dessert-y flavors would be amazing~

Also from my most recent 52teas order.

This was my freebie surprise pouch from the latest special offer, and the source of some suspicion about the selection of these so-called random surprises. See, when I ordered I considered leaving a note with my order that I’m not a chai fan, don’t like rooibos and haven’t had all that good experiences with peanut butter. Not that it was really my place to request anything at all when the offer said ‘random’ but just in case Frank might pay attention to it.

But then I decided that would be cheating, and if I got something that I didn’t like, I could always find a hapless victim to foist it upon. So I said nothing.

And then I got this. A green tea with fruit in it. As mentioned earlier, something I’ve had some really good experiences with from 52teas as well as fruit flavoured whites. Who doesn’t remember the white black currant, for example? Or the razzleberry green? (I miss that one) Or the Tropical Explosion white!

Frank sent me something I hadn’t tried before but was in the same category as things I’ve consistently liked a lot.

Then I saw LiberTeas had received a supposedly-random picked bonus pouch as well, and AGAIN it was one that had completely missed all her dislikes and was one she had planned on trying at some point later on.

Coincidence? I think not. I think Frank has been paying attention to our likes and dislikes where he could, and done his homework before selecting these random ones. (And he can protest all he likes, I won’t believe him) It makes me feel all special and listened to. :)

When this one was first introduced, I was a little scared of it. The sheer amount of ingredients! But it’s here now and I discovered in myself a genuine curiosity about trying it. Funny how sometimes you don’t know these things until you’ve got it in your hands.

The aroma of the dry leaves actually reminded me a lot of the Tropical Explosion. That was a good sign! It’s very very fruity but still sencha coming through loud and clear. Very nice!

I took too long to write the theory up there and I also got distracted by other stuff, so the cups gone luke-warm. Hrm. No comments on the steeped aroma then. The flavour may have gone a bit off too, not being warm anymore, but it’s definitely green tea with fruit. I can’t pick out any particular fruits, but it’s definitely fruit-y.

I like it. Good choice, Frank. Even if it was COMPLETELY RANDOM! (As if! ;) )

52teas

I have no idea what you are talking about.

whistles

Angrboda

Riiiiiiiiiight!

LiberTEAS

This is just another reason why 52Teas is one of my favorite companies. I like that kind of service. Frank rocks!

Angrboda

Exactly! Just another x in the Customer Service Book of Cool.

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

Angrboda I want that book then it would be easier to choose which companies to buy from. LOL :-)

Thanks, silvermage2000!

Since this is an older 52teas offering that I always wanted, I figured I should probably use a bit more leaf than normal. I made it iced too because, well even at 9am today it felt too hot.

I think I may have slightly oversteeped it, or its age isn’t working to its advantage, or I am just getting a lot of lemongrass. It oddly tastes like genmaicha on some sips, followed by lemongrass, so I’m leaning towards it just being heavy on the lemongrass here. (I am kind of weird, if lemongrass is strong I get grain flavors from it, especially Fruit Loops. I’ve got these chicken lemongrass rolls from Trader Joe’s that seriously taste like the cereal!) Sometimes a sip is berry with a little citrus. This is a lot of fun and I’m glad I’ve got some to try!

Hmmmm, this tea smells buttery and fruity. I cold brewed it for 6 hours. This is really weird, I might have gotten a teaspoon without any fruit flavour because I am just getting a bitter, and kinda tasteless mess. I will definitely have to try this again, maybe shake up the bag a little.

Not rating at this time, because I am sure this is just my user error.

Woot! Got this tea in the mail today and immediately opened it,steeped and iced it! Wowowow! I am not usually a fan of flavored teas, but what a great tea. You know when you have a fruit salad that has been sitting together for a while and all the flavors mesh together into one super fruit flavor? That is what this tastes like! But, I can also taste the green tea base, which is awesome!

Thanks so much to the Sororitea Sisters for hosting the giveaway! You guys, as well as 52 teas rock!

LiberTEAS

Glad you are enjoying the tea – I really like it too. Congratulations on winning! We’ll be hosting another contest starting Monday – I hope you’ll enter that one too!

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

I have this blend and despite reviews I am scared to try it. I gather I will be mustering up the courage soon.

Cofftea

Ack! I’ll have to wait til Tues nite to check out the contest:( Gonna be away from my computer all day Mon and Tues. Can’t wait to see what you ladies are up to next:)

LiberTEAS

Rachel: It’s really good. I think that LissaMarie nailed it when she said that it’s like a fruit salad that has had time to marry and becomes like one big super fruit. It’s really juicy and fruity, but I like that I can taste the buttery sencha tea base too.

Cofftea

LOL Rachel, ditto. Only because I’m not sure it can achieve it’s goal in spite of being very good.

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

I will try to break into this tonight…wish me luck. I would sooner but I am working on talking myself into this right now.

LiberTEAS

Rachel – after you taste it you’re likely to wonder what took you so long… :)

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

Hope you’re right. :-)

LissaMarie

yeah, i agree with LiberTeas! You might like the tea more than you think you will. At least I did….i’m not usually a big fan of flavored teas ( and this is pretty flavored!) but it tastes so much better than I was expecting. This was also my first time trying a 52 teas tea…and it was a great experience, and I will likely buy from them now! :)

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

Sneak Preview I have officially tried this tea now. Watch out for the review soon.

Its too bad that this is a “one of a kind”. Its actually very good. The smell, both of the dry leaves and the resulting tea reminds me of a candle shop. Yep, you know them, you can smell them within a hundred feet in all directions when walking at the shopping mall or your favorite midwestern (USA) tourist trap. Despite that ;-) its a very good, fruity, floral tea.

Depending on the size and variety of your tea stash- it probably could be recreated. Especially since do to the shear number of ingredients no two cups… or pouches probably… taste exactly the same.

52teas

I don’t know about that, Cofftea. It WAS a HUGE batch, but I got in there and blended it up really good. I’m fairly confident the flavors infused and diffused fairly evenly throughout the tea.

Received this as a sample from either kittena or indigobloom. Overall not a bad tea though I’m not really sure what I should have been expecting haha. Would have been inreating to have a whole bag f this as I suspect most cups would taste different :)

Indigobloom

it was Kittena, I got one from her to!

Kittenna

Just a miscellaneously fruity green! I got apricot favours, yum!

tigress_al

I didn’t enjoy the first cup I had, but like you said, every cup will be different.
