From 52teas

Look ma: No mango this week! Instead, be prepared to be blown away by this new black tea blend. If you love our Pancake Breakfast blend, you’re going to LOVE this. It’s similar to Pancake breakfast, but a little sweeter with some cinnamon, brown sugar, maple syrup and yes, even a touch of butter flavors.

This is like French toast in a cup without the 600 calories you’d expect from some hot French toast drowning in maple syrup and butter. This is a brand new comfort tea and I imagine it’s going to go FAST.

I’m so glad I got this. mmm…me likey! This reminds me of 52teas pancake breakfast with cinnamon as an added dimension. The funny thing is that I don’t care for actual French toast, thus my original hesitation in buying this. But this tea captures a lovely French toast with cinnamon taste and blends it perfectly with the tea base. I don’t taste the overcooked egg taste I don’t like. (I know French toast egg isn’t really overcooked, but I prefer my eggs to be just barely cooked. Some may even say undercooked)

I used my typical heated, but not boiled water parameters, and I think this was key in getting the flavors to come out as well as they did. This has already become a favorite tea for me, here’s hoping it gets re-blended before I run out. I better go get ready; it’s looking like a rainy gray errand day. Thank goodness for yummy tea to brighten a dull-looking morning.

Ahhhhh!!!!! French toast tea!!!!!!! I didn’t hesitate for a second to purchase this tea when I read the e-mail announcing it. I’m not sure if it’s just because I’m really hungry or what, but when I lifted the brewing basket from the steaming cup, I was assailed by a strong, authentic French toast aroma! Yum! The brewed tea aroma is spot on!

I first tried this tea a few days ago with skim milk and Truvia. I do NOT recommend milk with this tea. It squashes the flavors and creates a bland, heavy mouthfeel. Sans additions, this tastes like a buttery, cinnamon black tea. But with only a little sweetener, BAM! The flavors really meld and come to life, and now I’m drinking liquid French toast! If I owned any maple syrup, I’d definitely try that out as a sweetener. In fact, it might be worth a trip to the store just to see how it’d turn out. ;)

If I had to compare this to Pancake Breakfast, I’d say it’s heavier on the bread and lighter on the maple syrup. And of course, there’s the addition of cinnamon, which Pancake Breakfast doesn’t have. Mmmm! It’s hard to choose a favorite between pancakes and French toast, and I’d have a hard time picking a favorite between these two teas as well. They are both delicious in their own right!

Wow, my cup disappeared fast. That’s always a good indicator. This tea is hard to categorize because it’s not sweet enough to be a dessert tea. But it’s also not brisk enough to be a breakfast tea. For me, this is best as a late morning/mid-afternoon tea. Overall, this is deliciously yummy regardless of the time of day. Not quite as good as the real thing, but tea hardly ever is. :)

oh man! I need this tea & actual French toast

Emily M

Now I want French Toast! This one sounds interesting.

CHAroma

I especially enjoy this with 0.5 tsp of Pancake Breakfast mixed in. Mmmm mmm, mapely goodness!

JustJames

you know, i haven’t had much luck with 52teas… things never wind up tasting the way they’re described? even assuming operator error and an attempted resteep they just don’t seem to work for me. randomly odd.

CHAroma

I have had both hits and misses with 52teas. Sometimes they don’t taste like what they’re named, but they still taste good. When a tea does taste the way it’s described, it’s a magical thing!

JustJames

true, magical teas are wonderful. i guess i already have a ‘hit or miss’ company in my roster and don’t want to add another? for me that’s david’s teas. they make some of my favourites, and then they make some ghastly ones (my opinion only) that sound great.

CHAroma

52teas was one of the first online retailers I discovered, so they have a special place in my heart. I have a TON of their teas, so if you’d like to try some samples, let me know and we’ll set up a swap. It’s a company that’s worth the risk in my opinion. And some of their teas are no risk at all, like the iced tea line Southern Boy Teas (SBT).

I feel like a Steepster slacker! I’ve not been able to keep up my notes on a daily basis, but I’m still here!

I HAD to pick up this tea when I saw it come out. There was no question. I am a big fan of French toast. It’s WAY better than pancakes! ;) Although I have to admit I prefer my French toast with only powdered sugar, no syrup. BUT, I tend to eat it with syrup at restaurants, so that is AOK.

So, this tea comes pretty darn close to the real thing. It’s not perfect, but I think maybe a little aging on the shelf might help. I have already enjoyed this twice, and I have to say I prefer it when I make it in my steeper at home (rather than microwaved at work). I used the same parameters that seem to work best for 52teas black tea blends (185 degrees for 3 minutes). It definitely has complexity…I get the cinnamon, the maple syrup, and some sort of bread-like flavor. I tried it with and without soymilk and I prefer the soymilk…brings out the bread flavor. I add sugar too, cuz why wouldn’t I? Drinking it made me want some real French toast. I also got that aftertaste you get of the syrup after eating real French toast. Ha!

The only thing that might make this better is some additional bread-like puerh. Wouldn’t that be something?!

A cup of tea from WheezyBee! Thank you for sharing. :)

It smells like cinnamon with a little maple. The fake maple syrup that is a guilty treat for me, not the real stuff which I actually don’t really care for on breakfast things.

Didn’t taste like much but hot tea, so I added a dollop of my homemade creamer. The vanilla and the richness from the coconut add so much. I think the tea would be good plain and slightly cooled, but I was impatient. :) I wouldn’t pin this as “French Toast”. Rather it’s a sweet cinnamony breakfast tea.

It’s pretty good, but nothing I’ll rush out to get. Mostly because I have So Many teas right now that I need to get through! (I’ll probably resteep this one. I hope it holds up!)

I have a whole pack of this which I have yet to try. If you are ever in need, I am happy to send some your way :)

OMGsrsly

First I just want to say that I am loving my new electric tea kettle. IT IS THE BEST THING EVER!!! I can now quickly brew tea to the temp that I want, and brew it in my room. Woooo! Now to see how long it will last. I’m hoping it will.

I got this tea yesterday along with my new moriage dragonware teapot
http://puu.sh/38dw3.jpg
http://puu.sh/38dxo.jpg
http://puu.sh/38dxY.jpg
and Khiro shock pads for my long board; I accidentally ordered hard risers instead of shock pads with my board >_> Now I just have to wait 2 more days for it to come in………

Ok on to the tea:
The dry leaf smells yummy. I can’t really describe the flavor other then sweet. It makes me just want to eat it out of the bag. The brew it self smells just as sweet. The first time I drank this sweeten with just light agave, it was ok. I got more of the flavors when it was cooler. This morning I used a some more leaf, then I added a small spoonful of brown sugar and a little bit of light agave….. Yes! This taste just like french toast! The cinnamon is in good proportion too. It’s present, but not dominating. The buttery after taste is awesome as well. It even has this bread/pastry taste there too. I can’t wait to see how this does as a latte. I can see vanilla sugar working great with this as well.

P.S. I should get some dark agave. That would be perfect in this.

French Toast for breakfast!

(I wish it really was french toast…)

I think I prefer this over the pancake breakfast tea. It’s heavier, and makes me think more of pastry/crusted toast. The cinnamon is very pleasant and not punch-you-in-the-face-strong, and I love all that maple.

It’s definitely not an every day tea, but it’s fun. And yes – no sugar required as this baby is sweet enough as it stands!

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 2 min, 30 sec

Is the base astringent? I was going to get this but thought it would be to close to Pancake Breakfast, which I didn’t think was anything special.

Kittenna

This would be an everyday tea for me :D Just like Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake.

Cavocorax

I didn’t find it to be astringent, but I usually don’t steep 52 Teas very long just to avoid that!

5/12 teas of Christmas, 2013.

Oh, not bad! This one tastes like a thin, resisting slice of cinnamon toast, overburdened by butter and syrup. It’s tasty but deceptively filling. Makes a good breakfast brunch tea!

Edit: Also egg. You wouldn’t think it but it’s there in all its strangeness.

This was the fifth tea from this years 12 Teas of Christmas box. Only I didn’t try it last night as I quite frankly forgot to. The last week has been a blurry haze of business and illness and I can’t remember if I’m coming or going any more. Well for now I shut my eBay shop until January to focus on fighting whatever stomach bug I have and to prepare my house for Christmas. I suppose French Toast is a breakfast style tea anyway so it may be better suited for right now, I can’t post my Christmas teas until late due to the time differences between UK and US/CAN.

The blend smells sweet like maple but with some cinnamon added and a nice rich and toasty black tea.

It really is very similar to Pancake blend but with some cinnamon and a subtle maple after taste. It’s not too sweet, not as I was expecting, but it doesn’t need any additional sweetener for me. It is pleasant, more waffle than French toast but I think it’s a slight upgrade from the Pancake blend.

All this pancake talk is making me crave blueberry pancakes with maple syrup drools.

Backlog:

Absolutely YUMMY! A bit too much cinnamon in it, in my opinion, but other than that, I really like this one a lot. And since I usually like to use a cinnamon swirl bread when I make french toast, the cinnamon didn’t bother me, and I actually found it in keeping with the flavors I’d expect from a plate of french toast. (However, one of our local bread companies made a Peach Cobbler bread a few months ago, and this is even better than the cinnamon swirl in french toast … and I think that Frank should make a Peach Cobbler Bread French Toast blend … oh drool!)

This is definitely one of the best teas of the year, and I wouldn’t be at all surprised if it is one of the teas featured in the 12 days of christmas sampler box. If it isn’t, it should be!
