Today’s work SBT, prepared the usual way. I’ve pretty much always enjoyed 52Teas cola blends, and this one’s no exception. I can taste cola (off-brand, reminiscent of cola bottles), and I can taste cherry (sweet, fruity, not at all medicinal). It’s not effervescent (obviously), but there is something about it that’s coming across as “carbonation”, and it’s not just my imagination. Trust me. I don’t actually have that much of an imagination. The standard black tea base is there in the background, but it’s not too intrusive, and it doesn’t overpower the flavourings. It’s smooth, lightly malty, not at all bitter or astringent. I’ll go with LiberTeas and say it’s like someone poured flat cherry cola into a mug that already contained tea dregs, because that’s pretty much what it’s like. Doesn’t sound too appealing, but actually, it’s really pleasant on a sticky late-summer day.

I’m sad that there’s no more SBT in the world.

But there’s plenty still in my cupboard, so I’m still smiling for now.

Backlog:

52Teas does the cola flavors very well, at least, that’s been my experience in the past with the various cola flavored teas that Frank has created. So I figured I’d enjoy this one.

It’s tasty. I taste the cherry and I taste the cola. And I taste the black tea. In my full-length article about this tea: http://sororiteasisters.com/2014/09/10/cherry-cola-flavored-iced-black-tea-from-southern-boy-teas/ I mentioned that it tastes like someone poured a flat cherry cola into my black tea.

That is to say that I didn’t get as much of the effervescent experience as I would if I were drinking soda … but I do get a slight ‘bubbly’ taste from this. Not as much as I remember experiencing from the 52Teas version of the cola. I’m not sure why that is.

This is still really good, very refreshing … a really good iced tea.
