Blueberry coconut?! OMG. That is probably spectacular. I can’t wait!

Congrats to your youngest (and you!) :D

Thanks! I’m over the moon proud of her. I was sobbing pathetically at her graduation.

I just placed an order with you a few days ago. I can’t wait to get them! :)

I hope you’re enjoying the teas – thank you so much for your order!

Those ice cream flavours sound really interesting. Maybe someday I’ll get over there to try the. :)

Fair warning: once you try their ice cream it may be difficult to go back to ‘ordinary’ ice cream. It’s just so good. Beyond the unique flavors – the quality is so top notch. Like one of the flavors that this tea was inspired by, the Strawberry Honey Balsamic with Black Pepper – the strawberry is so strong and flavorful. You don’t taste a ton of honey balsamic, it’s more like an accent that enhances the flavor of the strawberry. It makes it taste even more like strawberry. Every once in a while, you’ll get a subtle hit of pepper. But mostly, it’s strawberry. So yummy.

purchased lol At least it’s in Canadian $ so that’s exciting :)

Is there any way to get an ingredient listing for the final pouch (12th day of Christmas) tea from the advent calendar?

52Teas said

Here is the ingredient list:

organic ingredients: yerba mate, freshly shaved nutmeg, calendula petals & natural flavors

The post for this tea will be posted in the next day or two, it is also the tea of the week for this week (December 23).

Thanks Anne!

OOOH! I love the idea of grab bags! If there’s any left when I get paid again on Monday, I’ll make an order.

BTW: I’m currently indulging in a nice cup of “Earl Grey Cupcake”, which I’m fairly certain is one of my all-time favorites of yours! Great stuff!

Thanks! I will add these to the poll – with one exception: White teas are not included in the holiday box for a couple of reasons, but the main one is that the white teas are extraordinarily bulky & difficult to package. But thanks for including the white tea on this – I think you’ll be happy in a couple of months! :)

Sil select said

yeah just trying to come up with suggestions that weren’t black tea based. obviously i’d be fine if the entire box/teas were all black haha

already with the vote suggestions?  Yowzaz. 

I will keep saying PEACHY KEEN but I’m sure it doesn’t have a chance again… so I don’t expect to see it on the poll so soon…
Berried Treasure as well…
Smoky Butterscotch Peach
Tomato, Basil and Black Pepper (the black one)
Pineapple Marshmallow Black
Dreamsicle Puerh
Coconut Banana Cream Pie Hojicha? Too soon?
I loved the idea of Frank’s Trail Mix blend (never tried it) but would love to see different ingredients in it?
Definitely a Marshmallow Treat Genmaicha (always)… I’m up for suggesting whichever one someone else wants…
Some of my favorites I still have around in the cupboard, so don’t want to mention those just yet. :D
This REALLY looks like a summer tea list though….
Speaking of which I’ve been meaning to ask if you ever created a heavily flavored Pineapple and coconut black tea blend before? 

52Teas said

Thanks! Houjicha is another issue similar to the white tea issue that I mentioned above – too bulky.

I have contemplated the trail mix blend for some time because I really enjoyed that the first time it came out – but I would need to really think about it because – no nuts. Sunflower seeds instead? I’m hesitant given some of the previous thoughts that were expressed about sunflower seeds in my previous blends. Not trying to shut the idea down at all – just kinda thinking “out loud” – brainstorming? about how to make that tea a possibility. Also – I don’t have that recipe because it’s one that was lost to Frank’s computer crash. :(

So I would be working from scratch there. Not a real deterrent, I could probably figure it out (or at least something that enchants my tastebuds) – so again – just tossing ideas around. :)

Okay – I didn’t know you weren’t using nuts in tea? I know it’s for allergies… And I also thought you had already nixed the sunflower seeds because those do not age well at all. I’m picking them out of blends at this point before brewing, but that is entirely my fault with my aging teas. That would be tough to make a trail mix tea then without nuts/sunflower seeds. haha.
