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 let my husband pick the tea this morning, and he felt this one was the most appropriate for breakfast time. Here’s what we did:

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

This nearly exhausted our sample, but should I have the opportunity to make this one up again, I think I’ll use 1-1/2tsp per serving and possibly increase the steep time. It’s a little weak this morning.

I’m getting hints of the french toast flavors, with its vanilla and eggy notes, as well as a slight maple syrup quality, but nothing is standing out firmly… not even the base. It’s weak and rather lackluster.

When I use up the rest of the sample, hopefully the things I learned here (about what not to do) will come in handy and I can make up an enjoyable tea with this blend. Fingers crossed.

Mmm I love French toast. This tea is not quite “French toast,” but it is delicious. It has maple, brown sugar, and that egg coating on the toast. The “toast” is missing a little though.
As others have mentioned, this is similar to pancake breakfast.
Now I want real French toast, and pancakes!
Next time I will just have to drink it WHILE having French toast! Yum.

Thank you CK for this sample!!!!!!

It’s pretty yummy. I didn’t get a French toast aroma or taste at first, smelled like cinnamon spice, tasted like a cinnamon tea with a subtle creaminess. As it cools the butter and bread starts to peek through. Then I added some maple syrup….. There it is! Now it tastes like a plate of French toast!

Another snow day and another new tea to try! I knew this one would be a winner because I like Pancake Breakfast so much. This one seems to have a strong addition of cinnamon to it, although I still can detect a rich butteriness in the flavor. I could smell brown sugar in the dry leaves, but unfortunately didn’t get any of that or the maple syrup in my cup. I think I would definitely order this one in the future, but I still prefer Pancake Breakfast over this one because you get more of the pastry-bready flavor of pancakes in that one. The aftertaste in this one does remind me of cinnamon toast, but nothing can beat that warm, crumbly flavor of pancakes! Thank you, VariaTEA for sending me this one!

-Dry blend has small black tea leaves with small pieces of cinnamon and small yellow petals.
-Dry leaves smell like spicy cinnamon with a hint of sweet brown sugar. Tea liquor aroma is lightly of cinnamon with a buttery scent.
-Tea liquor is a clear medium yellow brown color.
-Buttery black tea flavor with a cinnamon finish. Light cinnamon toast aftertaste.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Very good tea. Light cinnamon and butter flavors. Slightly reminiscent of cinnamon toast.

I’m a little behind on the tasting notes for these teas. Now that the semester is over for me, I will have more time to drink tea and write about it! One of the pouches I’d already had and another had a tea that I strongly dislike. I might go back and write something about ‘Day Three’ but otherwise, here we are.

The scent of this dry leaf is very heavy on the cinnamon. It doesn’t smell like pancake breakfast to me, but that could be because the french toast is hiding in the background? After water has been added, I do detect something similar to pancake breakfast, but the cinnamon is the main note.

Sipping… this one is interesting. It reminds me of pancake breakfast, but a stranger version of it. It’s almost like it’s pancake breakfast with a twist plus the addition of heavy cinnamon. Again, I don’t taste butter/eggy notes, but I’ve never been able to get those flavors from 52Teas. The maple syrup doesn’t taste as strong in this blend either. I think that given the choice, that I would prefer pancake breakfast, but I am glad that I got to see what the french toast version is all about. I can see this tea being quite the favorite for someone who likes cinnamon teas. Twelve Teas of Christmas: Day Five

Mmmmmm. Thank you KallieBoo! for sending me this sample. I did have to do some work on this one to find all of the elements. In the end I found the butteriness and the that crisp bread taste. I did add some cinnamon sugar to get that sweetness to pop and then turned it into a latter to get the whole effect. I was so tempted to add powdered sugar on too and I wish I had syrup to add to it. Oh well maybe next time. It was a delightful cup. http://www.flickr.com/photos/20741867@N05/10030498253/in/photostream/

So this is day four of the Twelve Days of X-mas sampler. I’ve been eying this tea with passing interesting but I’ve never tried any because I assumed it would be very similar to Pancake Breakfast. As it turns out I was wrong. I swear I was smelling freshly-cooked french toast when I opened the bag it smelled so authentic.

It’s got the flavour pretty well down pat too – I can taste the toasted bread undertone flavoured with a bit of cinnamon and a hint of vanilla. And it’s all covered with the flavour of sweet, delicious maple syrup. It makes me crave some actually french toast right now.

This one is really pretty good, and captures the flavor of french toast very well. It is sweet but not too sweet, and there are definite bread/eggy flavors in this. There’s a pretty big pop of cinnamon, but it works.

I brewed this using 195°F water for 3 minutes and put it in the refrigerator to chill overnight.

This is delicious. I love the soft creamy cinnamon, and I’m sure I taste a hint of butter. The aftertaste is almost cinnamon roll. The black tea melds really well into these flavors and adds maltiness without bitterness or astringency. This tea tastes best when it is allowed to come to the cool side of room temperature.

The first sample from the sample box I purchased from liberTEAS.
People of Steepster, if any of you are interested in an amazing collection of high-quality tea samples, I highly recommend these boxes. I have quite a stash myself, but I always have so much fun with these boxes as it is an opportunity to try teas and vendors I wouldn’t have an chance to otherwise. The variety of the samples is delightful. Also, although I haven’t counted the samples in the box, I am sure there are more than the amount stated when I purchased. Each sample is labeled with name, vendor and steeping instructions. Can you tell I’m simply in awe of this box?

Ok, the tea. The first cup I drank without milk. It reminded me of the Pancake Breakfast, only with some cinnamon. Very doughy and sweet
Then I had a second cup with some milk., the first sip of which made a wave of nostalgia wash over me. It was very much like my beloved Buttered Cinnamon Raisin Toast tea that has not been in stock for ages. I think that was one of my favorites that I had thought I would never taste again. I’m going from memory here, but this French Toast is very similar to that other Toast tea. Toasty, buttery, cinnamony. Heaven.

Sadly, neither are in stock anymore and my little sample is long gone….
