There are some blends I create that actually make me feel like an evil genius. This is one of those blends.

I’m really tempted to just say:

Muah – ha – ha!

and leave it at that.
Here’s our caffeine-free African honeybush with organic cacao nibs, marigold petals and natural and organic flavors. If this doesn’t cure your sweet-tooth, I’m not sure I can help you.

Thank you VariaTEA for sending me this sample.

I don’t get it. Have tried this a couple of times with different steep parameters and I can’t find anything even vaguely resembling peanut butter cup cheesecake. No peanut butter, no chocolate, no cheesecake.
Call me crazy but I’m getting sweet, fruity, peppery, chemical and honeybush.
Sorry but that’s my impression both tonight and the other night that I tried it.

MissB

Some nights this is bang on for me. Others…? I missing it too.

MissB

.. erp. I’m missing it too.

Up until recently, peanut butter flavored teas scared me. I’m not sure exactly why they weirded me out so much, but they did. And I’m not sure I can adequately explain how I got over it, but I’ll try. Some time ago, in one of my Foodzie boxes, I received some Salty Peanut flavored Salt Water Taffy. It was amazing. Seriously, the best taffy I ever tasted. It tasted like peanut butter but a little saltier. And it was SO good.

So, I somehow deduced that if this taffy could taste THAT good, that maybe, just maybe peanut butter flavored teas would taste good too. I don’t know how I connected taffy and tea together in this way. My mind is a strange and mysterious thing, the way it works.

It’s not that I dislike peanut butter. I actually like peanut butter. But, somehow a peanut butter tea just didn’t seem right. I don’t know why. Again … my mind and the way it works is a strange and mysterious thing.

Anyway … on to this tisane. It’s actually quite yummy. I taste the peanut butter, the chocolate and the cheesecake. The cheesecake flavor really pops in this. As it cools, I notice a hint of buttery-pastry flavor … just a little bit though.

I also taste the honeybush, and basically what tasting the honeybush does for me is make me glad that Frank did not choose to use rooibos in this because I prefer the taste of honeybush over rooibos… and I like the sweet, nutty flavor of the honeybush in this cup. I don’t think I’d like this quite as much if it were a rooibos blend.

Really yummy. Not the best thing I ever tasted or anything, but, I’m really glad that I tasted it.

BoxerMama

This is one I’ve wanted to try, to be fair I don’t think I have even ever had a honeybush tea. I’m also nervous of peanut butter tea.

Veronica

The idea of peanut butter tea weirds me out, too. Although I must admit that you’ve made me curious! If anyone could pull it off a good peanut butter tea it would be Frank.

Sil

I’m with you on the weird! I love peanut butter…but the thought of “drinking” it seems really strange

SIPDOWN! 300 teas successfully achieved….150 to go. holy crap. and i just ordered 2 more…Also, I hope the ladies will forgive me not remembering and thanking whomever gave me each of my teas. I’m pretty sure this one was kittenna though.

Sipping this i get rooibos…and something that reminds me of the way that peanut butter and chocolate mix together in a peanut butter cup. I wouldn’t say this is peanut butter cup though. Tasty enough but lack of points for not being what it is trying to be. Still i’m happy to cross another 52 blend off my list!

Dinosara

I’m impressed you got back down to 300 so quickly! You can do it! :D

Terri HarpLady

Little Terri wants to know what you ordered…she’s been begging me to let her buy more tea all day :p
I told her we’re not allowed to buy anything until Ms Theresa gets our taxes finished.

Sil

Oh god….what I ordered? I should post a picture of teh tea I came away with after the girls were here….our della terra order, lupicia, upton, 52 teas,Nina’s Paris were all exchanged and then it was just all the random swaps between the 4 of us. I still can’t believe it took us like 6 hours to go through it all and that was with pre-sorting a bunch of the stuff ahead of meeting up. Then I ordered more red leaf….and some 52 teas on its way….last night I placed my first ever davids tea order….we’re getting samples from bluebird… And I still have 2-4 incoming swaps and only a couple outgoing (which won’t help me get much down in my cupboard). Thankfully I DO have a bunch of 2 cup samples, which if you saw my mugs at home, you’d understand why they’re really 1 cup samples lol

Sil

Tell little Terri she just needs to go “shopping” in my cupboard (though there are a bunch of samples int here I may not be able to send you, so maybe that’s not a good idea yet so she’s not disappointed….)

Kittenna

Yeppers, from me. Not as good as other reviews have said :(

This one has settled down since last time I drank it, which is a good thing. There was something chemically and odd about it before, but now I can actually taste cheesecake in the brewed tea. And chocolate. I’m not getting much in the way of peanut butter, though, or even nuttiness. The rooibos isn’t too prominent, so it scores points for that.

Ultimately, this isn’t quite the tea I’d hoped it was going to be. It would pass as a chocolate cheesecake tea now, and I have to say that the cream cheese note I’m picking up is really delicious and dead-on accurate. I just wish there was any kind of nuttiness here — that would really bring it home.

I’ve one cup’s worth left, so I’ll probably finish that off tonight. I’m glad I had the opportunity to try this, but it’s not one I’d pick up again based on this experience.

6/12 teas of Christmas, 2013.

I don’t particularly care for honeybush or rooibos, and that whole tobacco, fruity medicinal thing they have going for them, but I like the idea of this blend. It’s also nice to drink something that isn’t full of caffeine for a change.

There’s a weird sweetness that may be buttery cream, or chocolate covering. It’s not quite reaching the full glory of peanut butter cheesecake for me though. I still want a piece of cheesecake after this. Oh, well. That creamy sweet coat over the honeybush is still decent, even if I can’t identify what it reminds me of with confidence.

Edit: I over-leafed it for my last session and the cheesecake, plus a bit of chocolate, really came out. Still no peanut butter though.

I’m better with honeybush than I am with rooibos..

CrowKettle

I’ve had a hard time with honeybush for some reason. I think it may have a sweetness that I don’t care for that isn’t so present in rooibos. I haven’t tried enough honeybush to say for sure.

I’m late yet again. This was yesterdays Christmas box tea but I was a little under the weather and was unable to review it. So it has been saved for today, where I intend to catch up with my box.

The raw blend smells like a sweet Christmas ale with a chemicalness.

It tastes sweet, dry, strongly honeybush with a slight sour after taste. I cannot taste the peanut butter or anything nutty other than the fact it’s on the dry side. I don’t really taste butter or cream either to suggest peanut butter. The cheesecake however is coming through quite strongly.

My husband is rather disappointed as peanut butter is one of his most favourite foods ever and he also agree’s that he can’t taste it in this blend either.

Oh well, glad I had a sample of this before I considered buying any. Sorry 52Teas but I am not a fan of this one.

Thank you, Frolic, for your insight into steeping up these directionless miscreants!

Based on the other honeybush teas I’ve had and what notes other Steepsterites made about how they steeped this tea, this is what I ended up with:

Teaware: 16oz glass infuser mug
Measured dry: 2tsp
Temperature: Boiling
Steeping Time: 8min
Additives 4tsp raw sugar

While my drink steeped merrily away, I had to sniff the dry blend again. I was shocked at first at its sharp bite, because on its own it smells like dried fruit and vinegar. Fortunately the raving of other reviewers made me curious enough to try it despite the… aroma.

My first sip was very reassuring, but it tasted like some additional time was needed. I started at 6 minutes because it’s heck of a lot easier (and possible!) to add time than take it away. I wasn’t surprised, since some of the top reviewers were at 8 minutes or more.

Once it was finished doing its thing, I think my tastebuds actually cheered! It is a very sweet, creamy concoction that hints at the wonderful tang of cheesecake. I’m also getting a wee bit of the peanut butter cup, although it’s more of a dark chocolate nip than something smoother and milkier.

All in all, this has been a pretty fabulous surprise, and if I hadn’t gone a little tea crazy in my recent ordering I might be tempted to keep a little of this on hand!

I was really hoping that this tea would be in this box! I wasn’t sure that I would like it enough to order a whole bag. Well, I totally would!
This is peanut butter for sure with very light notes of chocolate and cheesecake. It is not sickly sweet or anything, but still sweet enough for my dessert craving!

Doctor Who sipdown. The aroma is kinda chocolatey. It tastes like peanut butter pie. I don’t get much cheesecake flavour, but still good.

Yum. I was worried and skeptical about ordering a peanut butter tea. Notes and hints of peanut butter, chocolate, and cheesecake dance together without being overpowering. If I tasted it without knowing the title, I don’t know if I’d say "Oh! That’s peanut butter chocolate cheesecake! But the flavors make sense together. There’s strong undercurrent of vanilla (thinking is is the honeybush? I’ve only had one honeybush tea before, and that was from a different company). This is PERFECTLY blended for a great desert in a cup. Note, I did add a wee bit of sugar. I am curious to try it without.
All in all, super happy with my first taste of 52teas. Can’t wait to try the others I bought.
