Oh, this is my 400th tasting note! Hooray!

I wanted to log this badly so sorry Frank, if you need to give it a legit description that isn’t just me copying the Cotton Candy one and changing it to bubblegum, lol

I followed the directions on the package for steeping the whole bag in 2 cups of water then pouring it into a pitcher and adding enough water to get it to 2 quarts. I love the packaging! I was surprised at the size of the bag in there.

At first I thought I might have let it steep a little too long because I had to heat up my jams to get them to actually set and of course both the water and the jam was ready at the same time. I let it cool off a bit more while I made some blueberry jam for something different (I am so mad, I have used the entire jar of pectin I bought. It said it’d make 22 jars. I’ve made 16! Now I need more to finish off the peaches!)

I tried it without agave at first, and my fears about oversteeping were negated; but it just wasn’t bubblegum sweet enough. Since I normally can’t chew gum without my jaw acting up, I love that bright pink, super sweet stuff. After agave, it was PERFECT. That is exactly what it tastes like if it included black tea. The base here is nice, because it lets the flavor shine through without being too astringent or anything else. But at the same time you know you’re drinking black tea. Awesome balance.

I’m glad I already ordered more of these, and I saved the bag to resteep again later on!

Bonnie Congratulations! Yep, always celebrate those milestones with bubblegum!

Yay for 400!

congrats!

Dylan Oxford

Ah man, you beat me to reviewing one of these ;)

Had I made a pitcher of iced tea last night, you would probably have been first!

DaisyChubb

Yay happy 400!

Congrats, and a lot more to come we all hope :-)

Yay, congrats!!! 500 is not far off now! :P

Finished adding the rest of the Southern Boy Teas line up to Steepster. Sorry for the delay. I always enjoy reading your reviews! Congrats on 400 tasting notes!

BTW, I’m glad you liked the packaging. I think next time we’re going to use some bags that are just a little bigger. It was just a bit of a squeeze to get those teabags in there. LOL. We made up 64 of each of the eight varieteas to start. I thought we would never get finished. :)

momo

Thank you everyone! Your comments made my day :D

I can imagine it was a bit difficult! I liked that it was nice and compact, without ever thinking “this has to make enough tea for a pitcher.” Easy to open, and then surprise, this whole bag fit in there!

I am already almost through half the pitcher because it’s that good ahhh.

Azzrian

CONGRATS!!! WOO HOO! I will nab some of this tea too!

SimplyJenW

Congrats to you, Amanda! I just got some of this today and can’t wait to try it.

Yaaaaay! Bubblegum tea!

This is great – it’s like a sun tea (or even like a nestea with no sugar) but bubblegum flavour! I looooved the ease of the tea bag too! It was the perfect size, smelled delightful and was so easy to use!

mm the bubblegum flavour is spot on – I only used 2 tsp of sugar for the entire 4 cups of tea, and it was more than sweet enough. Expertly blended!

My prep was to put the teabag in my 4 cup teapot and pour 2 cups of hot water over top. I steeped for 3 mins, then topped with 2 cups cold water and removed the teabag. I put the whole pot in the fridge, and served over glasses filled with ice!

The ice was definitely needed because the tea was quite concentrated with only 4 cups of water. Turned out perfect though – this is totally tea-bar worthy – I would pay 5 bucks for a cup of this and have it be worth it – because it’s so tasty and unique!

Thanks Frank – you rule school.

My last SBT tea… This tastes so much like pink bubblegum… well, actually, it tastes like black tea and bubblegum. It’s really yummy. It isn’t my favorite of the SBT line, but, it is certainly tasty and refreshing!

This (among other 52teas) just came in the mail – WOO HOO!!!

Started out with this one since I had the most of them. Brewed this as originally directed: one 2-quart tea sack in 16 oz (2 cups) boiling water for 3 minutes. Shook in about a third of a cup of sugar and diluted with another 2 cups worth of cool water and ice. This is so tasty! I love the bubble gum flavor! It’s a great balance of flavoring to tea.

I did resteep this in 1 cup of boiling water for about 4 minutes. Added in a little more than an eighth cup of sugar and diluted with another cup of icey cold water. It resteeps very well, just as Frank has said! Quite a deal if resteeped!

I’m keeping this in my cupboard, mostly for the summer months. Looking forward to having the husband try this out too!

It’s too hot here today which gives me a chance to try this iced tea. I decided to cold steep it to see if more bubblegum flavour comes out as opposed to the black base which I think would if it was boiled.

It’s been in the fridge for roughly 5 hours and has changed to a muggy brown colour so it looks finished to me. It has a sweet and fruity scent, not quite bubblegum original but maybe pass as a tutti fruity bubblegum.

Flavour is fresh and sweet with delicate fruit tones and something I can’t quite make out. Maybe some sort of flower like violet? Like Parma Violet sweets. Happy with the results from the cold steep and would probably do the same again if I bought another one.

Today’s iced tea choice! I ordered some more SBTs over the weekend, so I don’t feel so guilty about using these up so quickly anymore. I’ve limited myself to one litre of this today, though, so I should have some left for tomorrow as well. I just find these teas so easy to drink that I can get through nearly two litres all by myself on a hot day. It’s delicious, but pretty extravagant! I want these to last!

The flavouring here is quite subtle. In terms of strength, it reminds me more of Cotton Candy than of Neapolitan Ice Cream. The bubblegum flavour seems to come out primarily in the aftertaste. I’ll take a sip, and get black tea with a hint of fruitiness, and then I’ll breathe in after swallowing and suddenly be hit with a big smack of flavour. It’s a little odd, but very welcome!

I’d probably never have believed tea could taste of bubblegum if I hadn’t tried this. It just seems such a hard flavour to capture. Frank’s managed it, though! It’s a fun tasting tea, well suited to summer, and very refreshing. I’m still surprised how well the flavours combine with the black tea base, but this is no exception in that regard.

Another stunning iced tea. I know everyone says theirs are the best, but these really are. I could probably drink them forever, and will so long as they’re available to buy!

I know what you mean. I tend to drink the whole batch of this once I make it too. Super delicious!

This is my second try at an iced tea, and I’ve already had almost two pitchers of it. It is wonderful! I am still so amazed that I can like iced tea after so many years of hating it. And this one tastes more like tea than it does like bubblegum. The bubblegum flavor does come through at the end, but it’s faint, in my opinion. Nothing like the Neopolitan which I found to be much more aggressive. I drink from a 16-oz. cup and I add 2 Splenda to the cup before I add the tea. That helps bring out the sweet candy flavor but really, this tastes good without a huge WHAM of bubblegum anyway.

I cold brewed this for 15 hours or so. I go back and forth on whether I prefer these cold brewed or hot brewed then iced. Tastes like bubblegum and black tea. The black tea base is tart and fruity. The bubblegum flavor is less domineering than some of the others in the SBT line, so the black tea is more pronounced. Very interesting and good.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

Rec’d this from the SBT kickstarter campaign.

The dry pouch smells like basic plain flavour bubblegum.

I brewed this up as per instructions and added some white sugar. I am kind of unsure how much I added because I made it last night while I was tired, but probably a tbsp or two.

It tastes ok. Not amazing. I have had better bubble gum teas. The black tea base seems to be light but it is present. The bubble gum flavour is quite powerful at the beginning and is quite artificial, but then what bubble gum flavour isn’t artificial. This one also reminds me of hints of the razzleberry SBT.

It is a good thirst quencher, but not my favorite flavour.

Iced
