From 52teas

Wow are you guys in for a treat this week!

Here’s our premium Indian black teas (a little extra Assam in this blend since I envisioned it as a breakfast tea) blended with GREAT BIG, whole freeze-dried blueberries and natural flavors. I have a feeling this is going to be a VERY popular blend. Enjoy!

Okay. OKAY.

I re-organized my tea cupboard this afternoon. And much of my house. It looks a little nicer in areas. As a reward, the beau offered to make tea. I had intended to try this one out earlier (which spawned the tea cupboard re-orgaanization, which in turn led to cleaning everything else. Obviously I got side-tracked). So, I chose this one!

The dry smell is delicious – blueberry heaven. Now, I have two blueberry teas, which taste extremely different from each other. And this one smells (and tastes!) totally different again. I really like this. I don’t know that I get cream cheese or danish, BUT I do get the smell of homemade blueberry pancake mix, so obviously, there’s a bit of a dough aspect in there somewhere. I lit up like a kid at Christmas when I looked in the teapot and saw 5 ENORMOUS blueberries swimming in there. The tea leaves were also really large, and these factors only increased my excitement.

First sips are yummy. Big bold blueberry flavour, still reminds me of my pancakes. I get a hint of tea at the end of the sip and I am over-all very impressed. For a blueberry tea It’s high 90s. For a cream cheese danish, it’s much lower, but I’m rating it on how much I like it, not on whether it tastes like a pastry!

The beau says it won’t do a re-steep, but I might try it out anyway. Those blueberries look like they have oodles of flavour to release yet.

EDIT: big thanks to Meghann M for sending me this delight in my package of awesome. I’m slowly making my way through the ranks and have been delighted every step of the way!

This has a nice blueberry flavour, but without the addition of milk I find the Assam base makes “the pastry” taste a bit dry and overdone. After merely tolerating this tea for the last month I decided to add some soy milk today. When I did that the blueberries gained a tangy creamy friend, which makes for a very convincing cream cheese sauce. Huge improvement! Now I can enjoy finishing off the rest of this.

I should also add that the aroma is amazing, and exactly like a Blueberry Danish. I want candles, soap, and other similar products, that smell like this tea.

Sorry you don’t like this one as much as I do. :)

CrowKettle

I think I would have a hard time trying to match your love for this. ;) I do like it though and it’s one of the blends from 52teas that I’d think about reordering. I’ve a feeling it I’ll grow on me too, now that I know how I like it prepared.

Fjellrev

Have you tried a second steeping yet? It’s my favourite steep. The pastry and creaminess come out a little more and aren’t fighting with the base.

And not sure if you’re into handmade soap, but about soap smelling like this, Tvål used to make a blueberry one that smelled so much like this, but that was several years ago. Wonder if they would ever bring it back:

CrowKettle

I haven’t attempted a second steep yet. I’ll try that now.

You shouldn’t have showed me that website because I want to buy everything on it. I’m usually skeptical with handmade soaps, as I find that they don’t usually smell very similar to what they look like, but the stuff on there looks so good!

Additional notes: I think I’ve had three different batches of this tea (samples & a very cheap entire pouch!) This cup is from the Bestsellers Batch. The leaves look less black than my questionably aged pouch. The leaves here look like they are a bit more brown in color. I also don’t see any blueberries.. but it may be too small of a sample or I’m just not seeing them like last time. I used one flat teaspoon since the heaping teaspoon last time seemed too much.

Steep #1 // ten minutes after boiling // 2 min 15 seconds
I wanted to try an entirely different steep parameters. Maybe if I can find the perfect steep for ONE of 52Teas it will be easier to find the perfect steep for them all. This one is VERY good on flavor. It SEEMS the same as the other batches I’ve had. The black tea stays very hidden and light this time around, which is fine, since the blueberry flavor is so nice. It’s like the sweet gooey blueberry part of a danish! I’d say this steep was closer to being perfect.

Steep #2 // 10 min after boiling // 2 1/2 min steep
Another lovely cup with awesome flavor. I’m surprised there is this much blueberry left.

I just love Steepster. Not only is it my “tea brain” where I can look back at specific times I’ve steeped things, but I can compare notes with everyone else who has steeped the same tea to get that perfect cup!

I think that this tea tastes even better than when I first tasted it! The blueberry flavor is very much like the blueberry filling taste I would get if I had a blueberry Danish in front of me! Sweet and juicy and yummy!

And I can taste more of the cream cheese taste today too. A very nice cream cheese sweet and tangy taste comes through. Deeeee-lish!

And it’s all gone now…I was gonna get some with my next order. Sounds so yummy.

Meghann M

Did you get to try any Jaime? If not, I can send some your way with the Adagio teas.

chana

I also missed out on this one. Sounds scrumptious too. Frank keeps doing this to me – as soon as I make a big order, he comes up with something else yummy. lol

Jaime

Nope, haven’t gotten to try yet, have only read the reviews (which just keep sounding tastier and tastier). I’d love to have a smidge!

Ughhh as if this past week of food and stuff (namely cookie cake) wasn’t enough, we are going to Capital Grille on Saturday for our fifth anniversary of dating! And apparently they go all out on you.

If I could just drink tea the rest of the week, that’d be great.

I just got A TON of new tea in today so I’m hoping to finish some things off soon, this being one of them. There’s maybe 2-3 cups left after this one so yay, even though I have really, really enjoyed this one.

This is my favorite blueberry tea, and I love love love the cream cheese tang. The pastry part is also somewhat present, though I think that it gets boosted by the assam. And for some reason today I’m getting a little smokiness, though now that it’s cooled it’s faded. Kind of made for an interesting taste!

This has become my go to morning tea. I love the blueberry pastry notes, and have been finding whole dried blueberries the farther I get down in this pouch. I just really enjoy this tea. The package is slowly dwindling. I hope one of the other flavored blacks I have from 52 teas will take its place when this is gone. This is perfect for my mornings. No additives needed. I find it better flavored without the milk and sugar.

Jaime

This is another one I’m sad to have missed. Sometimes I wish Frank wasn’t such a tea-blending genius. It’s only sometimes, though, and only when I realize he’s out of a tea that I want.

Lori

This is a wonderful tea – especially for a berry- not too tart and no sugar needed even better…!

All I can say is that when I drank this tea I immediately felt as I was being bad and needed to make am excuse to drink it. It tastes so good! I can taste the flavor of fresh, juicy blueberries and as it cools I get that flavor of a warm cookie like pastry. When I got it really cooled off I get the zing of the cream cheese flavor but I am truly reaching to get it. It is truly yummy..yum..yum! I can’t wait to drink more tomorrow. I may bring it with me to work.

I took this one to work today and it was absolutely divine! I’m glad you like this one. I love this one, but I’m also currently waiting on yet another delicious order from 52teas.

Erin

52teas has had some slammin’ blends lately, this one included. i frequently bring this to class and i love it!

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

Erin I know what you mean. I recently picked up 4 blends and I have tried 3 so far. I loved all 3 in varying degrees so you are right, they are “Slammin’”

Stephanie

“Warm cookie like pastry”?? I must have this soon!

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

It is slight Stephanie, it is the blueberry that is most noticeable but it is there.

I’m so happy this was a tea that was chosen to be rescued! Thanks RachanaC and I look forward to more wonderful rescue teas :)

When I first opened this, I was immediately struck by the strong smell of blueberries. But under that, the more you smell it, the more this other scent comes out. It smells like some delicious bread dessert baking in the oven. Hopefully that taste comes through in the tea and this isn’t just a blueberry tea!

I seem to have trouble getting the temperature and time right with 52Teas’ black teas. Everyone else seemed to like about boiling and 4 minutes, so I went with that. After adding the water, the blueberry smell isn’t as strong and that baking smell comes out more. At the beginning of the sip, it’s blueberry. But then, somewhere near the end of the sip, the cream cheese danish flavor comes in. It feels like you’re actually eating a danish. It’s just the perfect amount, neither of the flavors overwhelming the other, though I do wish they blended together a little more. I honestly can’t complain though. Adding milk seemed to make the blueberry flavor a lot weaker, and the danish flavor a lot stronger. How do you even manage to make tea taste like this? I’m assuming 52teas employs a wizard until proven otherwise.

I have been rationing this out recently as I don’t have much left, but I’ve had a bad day so I needed something comforting to pick me up a bit. This was definitely the right choice, even if I did oversteep a little.

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

Don’t worry. I plan on bringing this one back in the fall. Just a little bit longer. :)

Finally scored a sample of this as it’s been on my ‘must try’ list for awhile given all the glowing reviews. Thank you, Dustin!!

I have unfortunately not yet found a 52Teas blend worth raving about, perhaps just due to my own personal tastes. This one wasn’t really an exception, thus far.

It’s definitely got blueberry flavouring in it, can’t deny that. There’s a slightly off chemicalish note that I’m guessing is maybe the cheesecake aspect?? Not sure. Maybe it’s one that should be aired out??
I didn’t taste any pastry notes either.

Also, as far as claims that it should be a good breakfast tea, what with containing Assam and all…. I disagree. The liquor of my tea ended up very pale and not full bodied at all, no strong tea taste telling me to “wake up!!”…. I let it steep for awhile. I will try again using boiling water as I had originally brewed it with slightly cooled down water because I’ve read that helps bring out the flavours of 52Teas blends.

As it stands it was perfectly drinkable, but did not live up to its claims, for me. Also the slight chemical after taste was not delicious.

So far I am just pleased to cross this off my wish list. If my next cup drastically improves I will be sure to let you know!

ETA
Tried this again, added some more leaf to yesterday’s steep and let it sit for quite some time. It did get darker but still not what I’d consider a breakfast tea. It still didn’t blow me away. I have enough dry leaf left for one more (strong) round so whenever that happens I will report back.

Chizakura

Weird. My cups of this brew SO dark I feel like if I put my finger into it, it’d meet resistance. xD

Chizakura

For me it’s not a breakfast tea either since it’s so sweet.

It’s a shame you don’t like it, but at least now you know that you don’t.

Chelle

Hmmm. I’ve got this on the way. I’ll have to see how it goes.

whatshesaid

I may have underleafed but next time I make it, I will know for sure!

Chizakura

That’s so weird. Bad batch maybe? I totally get not liking it (in fact, I don’t like it anywhere near as much as I did at first) but it makes some of the darket colored liquor I’ve seen. That’s what I don’t understand.

TastyBrew

Funny, I’m the opposite, totally underwhelmed by this at first and now I really like it, I don’t love it, but I do like it a lot.

Sil

bleh. I can live without

Allie

I had the same reaction from this tea, though it appears as though many people love it. I thought it was just me who was underwhelmed.

Sil

@allie – i think the original version people were all over. the reblend seems to be more hit or miss

TastyBrew

That seems to be a common theme for 52teas. People go nuts for the first round and the reblend is less than amazing. Cough…marshmallow treat.

Chizakura

He says he uses the same ingredients for reblends. So maybe people are just finding they’re not as good as they remember?

TastyBrew

That’s kind of my theory. The first time it is so new and crazy and excitement spreads through the interwebs, then the reblend hits, and the hype has killed it.

whatshesaid

I’m glad I don’t love anything so far because it means one less company to feel compelled to buy from!

Also Marshmallow Treat used to actually have marshmallows in it from what I’ve read, but he changed it to make it vegan friendly. I say bring back the marshmallows and let the vegans pick them out, heheh. :)
