Backlog:

This is by far my favorite of the teas introduced earlier this summer from SBT, with the Pink Lemonade coming in second. This is one that I still have a few pouches of in my stash, because it’s so good. LOVE it! It tastes like a lime cola plus black tea. I can even taste that effervescence that Frank seems to do so well.

Trying out the steepster app! Pretty jazzy. I have a bunch of SBT bags from the zoomdweebies kick starter and more will be coming so time to always have iced tea around! This one was sitting in my living room for some reason so I decided to make it. I sweetened it just a little while it steeped which was just right.

I think I have had this one before but I might be thinking of the Cuba Libre tea haha but this is similar minus the boozy flavor. It’s delicious and refreshing and it doesn’t even matter if it’s cold outside.

Made a big pitcher of this and it’s delicious! The cola and lime are both present and not overpowering the black tea base. The flavors are well balanced. I found this iced tea quite refreshing and flavorful :) mmmmmm gotta finish off my iced teas before it gets too cold!

I had this iced today. And Wow wow wow. I haven’t had soda in over 9 years and this reeks all the tastiness but leaves out all the terrible parts of cola. Yummy! It truly smells like cola, tastes like cola, it must be cola! Wrong! It’s cola TEA! Can you believe it? And I am a lover of lime so the subtle tart and sour from the lime pairs quite well. If you haven’t tried this… Well… You must!

This is an extremely well done SBT. I made this as per the package, tea bag in boiling water for 3 minutes, filled pitcher with cold water and chilled over night. I added 1 tsp of brown rock sugar.

The dry tea smells strongly of cola with lime. The brewed tea smells and taste the same. It is more like a generic cola, flavoured with real lime juice. The only thing it is missing is carbonation, which is fine by me because I am not the hugest fan of carbonation. This one is very similar to 52 teas Cuba Libre but I think the lime cola tastes much better.

Edit: The resteep was good. More lime and less cola flavour. Steeped 4 minutes.

What means SBT? :)

It is Southern Boy Teas. It is the name of the product line (I think anyway). Ordered from www.52teas.com

The July TeaLog Catchup !

I looked up this tea, anticipating reading others’ reviews to see what people thought of it, and it wasn’t even in the Steepster database yet!! No!! I do not want to be the first one to review this tea! But I am. =) So be it.

I brought one of each of Frank’s SBT’s iced tea blends to try as a gift to my mom and dad, who both like iced tea, but also for myself. That is, I’m leaving them at my parents’ house but they cannot drinking them unless it’s during when I’m staying there, which is close to half of each month so it’s not that bad.

I also brought a Teavana 64oz pitcher off of Amazon to go with them because my parents do not have a pitcher that has a lid. The lid is orange, my mom’s favorite color, and the SBT iced teas made 64oz, both of which are why I picked this pitcher. I would not normally buy Teavana stuff as a rule. Turns out, the lid doesn’t fit very snugly and the pitcher holds 8oz less than stated when filled to the absolute brim. =p But it is a good size to fit into their always crowded fridge.

Now on to the tea. I ended up easily getting two approx 56oz pitchers from the single bag. The first one steeped the recommended 3 minutes and the second left to stew for probably around 15. Both were lightly sweetened.

My mom really loved the tea. She was amazed at SBT’s selection period. She commented that she could taste the tea then the lime then the cola as she swallowed. I was surprised at how specific she was in her “tasting notes”, given that she rarely drinks more than bagged grocery store teas.

My thoughts were exactly the opposite. I tasted more cola than tea and the lime as an aftertaste.

My dad was less than enthused by the oddly flavored tea combo, though he did try it at least, but I suspect he will enjoy the more normal fruity blends.

Rating: 65. Smack dab in the middle of my nice range. Mostly because I’m not the biggest coke drinking. I do like lime coke. But coke isn’t something I can drink all day long. Iced tea should be.

This is so good when it’s cold. I put my SBTs in a bottle to bring to work a litre at a time, leaving the second litre in the fridge at home for the next day. I drank half of yesterday’s bottle in the morning while it was cold, and absolutely loved it. I forgot to put the other half in the fridge while I went for lunch, though, and came back to a warm-ish glass that wasn’t so fabulous. Somehow, this tea seems to lose some of its flavour when it gets warm. I guess the clue’s in the name given that it’s iced tea, though. Anyway, today I’m making an effort to be less forgetful so I can log this successfully.

Cold, this tastes beautifully of cola with a twist of lime. It’s cola rather than coke — the kind of flavour you’d expect if you bought own brand rather tha coca cola or pepsi, or whatever. Like cola bottles, really, I suppose. The lime tatses remarkably fresh and zingy, almost like I’d squeezed it in myself. On a hot day (and today is warming up quickly), this is just the thing. Better for me than actual cola, but just as tasty. All that, combined with the fact that it’s tea make it a winner in my book! This is great stuff — I definitely feel a repurchase coming on.

This was the only SBT I got with my 52 teas order and now I wish I had ordered a couple more, namely watermelon. I actually forgot about this and oversteeped it so it’s a tad strong, but it’s still really good. I love cola flavour and this doesn’t disappoint. Though, I do not taste the lime, maybe that’s due to the black tea being so strong. I can taste maybe a hint of citrus. I’m looking forward to trying more of the SBT’s!

This is amazing. I can’t believe it took me so long to try this. I cold brewed this pouch overnight in 2 quarts of water just as directed. It tastes just like lime cola just short of the fizzles. It is smooth and just a touch astringent with a nice typical black tea aftertaste. This is a great iced tea.

The cola flavor is surprisingly accurate! I could still clearly taste and discern the sweet cola, and this didn’t take away at all from the flavor of the tea. This was so easy to drink that I’d definitely repurchase this one. As far as the lime flavor goes, I didn’t really get that strong lime flavor, but more like there’s a lime slice in your drink. I’ll have to try the Lime Jello and see how it goes.
