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.

I’m not getting much at all from this tea, but I pulled it from a traveling tea box that has had several rounds and it’s in a regular zip plastic baggie, so the odds are stacked against this poor tea! It could be quite old.

I make sure to remove any teas from the HH teabox that I’ve seen before.. certainly if they’ve been in the box for two rounds. Definitely don’t want those well traveled teas in the box! :D

Thanks to Sil for a sample of this.
Like most of the flavored teas I’ve tried, it’s ok, but not nearly as exciting to me as it is to so many other people here.


Boo for me, I have no love for 52teas…

I relate :)


Same…. Esp when you look at teas vs price

This is the sort of black tea that I love – one where a 2 minute steep is sufficient. I don’t have a lot of time in the mornings, so teas like this one are perfect for making in a travel mug to bring to work. I made this in the Timolino with rock sugar.

It is so good. This tea has a thick mouthfeel and the aftertaste is pure caramel. I don’t taste chocolate, per se, but the thickness of this tea makes me think I’m biting into a sweet treat.

Delicious. And well worth the wait for this to be reblended.

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.

Flavors: Caramel, Chocolate, Nuts

Additional notes: Trying this one again a few weeks later like I said I would (well, according to my tasting notes, it has been two months and a week. Whoops.) Really, this one still has the same flavor as the last cup from the new batch did. I made sure my infuser had a cashew and plenty of chocolate nibs. The scent from the cup does still smell a bit like alcohol, but it might be better now. I’m getting hints of chocolate and cashew in the flavor, but not really any caramel unless that is what that hint of sweetness is. These flavors make the base black tea better than other flavors might. Even with the second steep, with the flavors decreased, the black base is more bearable. I see 52Teas is using all other bases than this one, like keemun, or even just honeybush, oolong, genmaicha… I love ALL of their other bases. Who even sells flavored honeybush?! Honestly, I think I’d avoid buying or even drinking this base in the future. But maybe that’s just my tastes… I see on the site they have four more pouches available for sale, if anyone wants to try it for themselves! I wish I could buy ALL of the other 52Teas right now. Monies though.
