From 52teas

After getting behind last week, only to find my office flooded via some plumbing mishap at the end of the week, I went in to work this weekend and decided that we really needed a special treat for our tea of the week this week. Something rich and decadent and sinful. Something to ease a troubled and harried mind…

So here we are: I started with a bold blend of Assam teas; none of those lighter crisper teas for this blend, this is to be a full, rich experience. Into that blend of Assam teas, I’ve added organic cacao nibs for a rich, chocolatey experience and real cashew pieces along with all natural chocolate, caramel and cashew flavors.

If you can open a pouch of this tea and your mouth doesn’t instantly start to water, you might want to check your pulse. This folks, is a Dessert tea with a capital “D”. Enjoy it, and don’t miss out. It’s not going to last long!

Wow! I really like this one. It’s a dessert tea, sweet, with a base of black tea and a thread of caramel. I don’t really get a nutty flavor to this, but the overall idea of a chocolate turtle is definitely there. I’ll be trying milk with this soon to see how it tastes.

Thanks to LiberTea for passing on a sample!

Wow. If you want a tea that tastes exactly like what it says, this is a good one to try. You can taste the nutty overtones very strongly, and there’s a hint of chocolatey caramel that mixes distinctively with the cashews. If I chew on my ice cubes it’s like I’ve eaten a little sweet treat without the guilt. I am on an iced tea kick, as usual in the summer, and this one is brilliant over ice. I use a splash of half & half to up the creaminess, and I sweeten with splenda. I’m sure it would be just as lovely with other sweeteners, especially honey (I imagine it taking on a honey nut cheerio flavor) — overall I think this tea is really wonderful for a hot summer day, or as an after dinner tea. Really, it’s great any time of day, but I don’t really place time restrictions on tea with the exception of chamomile (bedtime). Love it, love it!!

What a perfect christmas tea! Unfortunately I didn’t read any of the caveats about oversteeping until after I committed the same sin. I typically like my flavored black teas a little stronger, and disregard steeping instructions, but this delicate blend would have none of that! Despite the bitterness, there was excellent deep, dark chocolately flavor mixed with caramel and a hint of nuttiness that made for a decadent indulgence, which helped get through today at work! After all, isn’t that what the holidays are all about?

Not a bad cup of tea by any means, but not particularly noteworthy either. I taste more caramel than chocolate, and the cashew adds just a hint of nuttiness.

It always surprises me when I’ve got an idea stuck in my head about a tea, try it anyway, and it surprises me. I grabbed this in the re-blend extravaganza, thinking I’d probably like it enough to drink a bag of it, and then be quite happy passing on by after that.

I was wrong. I may need to order more if there’s still some available. Ack. Of course, it’s gone already. :(

Yes, this is good. Very, very good. The strongest note is caramel, then chocolate, then definitely a salty cashew-type flavor. I eat a lot of cashews, so I’m thinking the flavoring is a bit off from what I’m used to, however it’s still very, very VERY tasty. I may need to try making this as a chai next.

52Teas reblended three of the blends I wanted reblended the most… so I had to place my first order! This was the only one I wasn’t sure if I loved because I hadn’t had it before. But caramelwalnutchocolate. Immediately upon opening the pouch though, there is that chemical chocolate scent. I’ve had a pouch of chocolate tea from 52Teas that did this before, but it seemed like it had less of that as time went on. This is a new blend, maybe it just needs time to meld. I will definitely try it again in a few weeks. For now, it’s a bit disappointing. I even has a chunk of walnut in the infuser I couldn’t really taste. Just some of the chocolate, maybe a hint of nuttiness and a sweet taste that if you think real long could be caramel. But like I said, I’ll try it again in a few weeks!

hmm… I’m sipping cold now and it does taste better/ actually like a turtle! I can always wait until it’s cold if I don’t LOVE it hot.. the black tea doesn’t get astringent anyway.
