Many many thanks to Amanda for this sample
I wanted to save this for a day when I had time to myself to sit and enjoy this tea. Finally, that day is here! I am a big Harry Potter fan, and this is definitely how I would think Butterbeer would taste! Great job Frank. This tea is a smooth black base, with definite buttery rootbeer notes.
Halfway through my cup, as I was reading other reviews, I added milk, and it added a little more smoothness. Either way, with milk or not, it is really good!
I got this in the recent grab bag special.
This is a really neat tea with the oatmeal in the blend. Something so unique. The black base I find to be a little bit sharp, but it gives a good kick.
Upon the first few sips, I didn’t get much taste for some reason. As I continued sipping, the maple and brown sugar started to appear with the oatmeal in the last part of the sip and the aftertaste.
Somehow, this does feel like “it sticks to your ribs” like in the description, almost like if fills you up. I am glad that I like this because I have a whole bag!
Many thanks to Emilie for this generous sample!
First of all, I have no idea what zabaglione is supposed to taste like, but if it tasted like this tea, it would be delicious.
The strawberries are nice and fresh, and I am getting kinda a burnt creamy taste to this. The black base is there for sure. I am getting a little bit of bitterness in this one though. The bitterness is bearable because of the sweetness of the berries and creamy taste, but I would rather it not be bitter.
I have some more sample to play with, so I will try a shorter steep or cooler water next time.
Thanks to tattooed_tea for sending me more of this
I tried this as a cold brew. The rooibos was way too strong here and masks the strawberry flavour. I guess if you are going for a really earthy tea, this would be ok, but that just isn’t what I was looking for from this. From now on, I will stick to a hot brew because it is delicious that way!
Leaving the rating the same though.
Thanks to Amanda for this sample!
This smells delicous. I love coconut
This tea is nice and smooth coconut with some vanilla cream shining through. The black base is there, but not overpowering. I am not really getting any pie crust taste, but that is ok, because the filling is so great!
I would definitely re-buy this. Oh man, how did I get hooked to 52teas so easily??!
Thank you Emilie for this very generous sample!
The smell in the bag is really strong cinnamon.
Once brewed, the cinnamon is a little more tame. And then BAM, a wonderful baked goods smell wafts into my nose. Tasting now….this is pretty strong cinnamon, kinda lingering in my mouth a little. The baked taste comes through as a cinnamon roll with butter.
This is a delicious bedtime treat!
I also got this in my grab bag, so I will have lots to enjoy. Cold brew is next for this one!
This was a pretty good light earl grey. I think that the lemon and orange were a little too strong though, overwhelming the bergamont a little.
As far as earl greys go, I like them a little stronger than this.
It might make a good iced tea though.
It is pretty good for a bagged tea, easier to cart around and steep compared to loose leaf.
I needed a jasmine fix, and I really wanted to see how this compares to the Teavivre jasmine silver needle. I only drank this tonight though, no comparison.
Not much different than the first note I wrote on this tea, smooth, slightly sweet, slightly grassy, not overpowering. Man…..I love white tea!
Next time, I will be comparing this to Teavivre’s version.
Hmmmm, this tea smells buttery and fruity. I cold brewed it for 6 hours. This is really weird, I might have gotten a teaspoon without any fruit flavour because I am just getting a bitter, and kinda tasteless mess. I will definitely have to try this again, maybe shake up the bag a little.
Not rating at this time, because I am sure this is just my user error.
