drank French Toast by 52teas
254 tasting notes

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.

Feel free to browse my cupboard if you’re interested in swapping, but all the mate and pu-erh in our household is my husband’s.

For swapping purposes, please note the apple allergy. Thank you!

I tried to limit my cupboard to teas that were 1oz or larger, but that was a gorgeous failure in terms of swap communication. It’s all going back up.


Okay, I just feel wrong trying to grade things without a rubric – it’s too inconsistent! So, here is the grading breakdown:

0-50: Dump it!
50-60: I might finish the cup
60-70: Possibly finish the pot
70-80: I may keep this on hand
80-90: Cupboard space guaranteed
90-100: Poetry may be involved!
