Our Featured Tea for February: Caramel Apple Gunpowder Green Tea!

Hello Everyone!

In February, we didn’t have a featured REblend because – when I went to blend the reblend I had planned on doing for February, I didn’t have all the ingredients I needed. So, I needed to think fast and create something! This is what I created:

Caramel Apple Gunpowder Green Tea – this turned out so good! Yummy granny smith apple goodness with sweet caramel notes (vegan, of course!) plus the smooth, nutty notes of organic gunpowder green tea from China!


Our Tea of the Week for February 27, 2023 is:

Citrus Spice Cake Black Tea – I crafted this tea for my mom for her birthday! It’s a blend of black teas, spices & citrus (blood orange, lemon & lime) plus a hint of cake-like essence for a yummy desserty treat for your teacup!

Our Tea of the week for February 20, 2023 is:

Raspberry Lime Green Rooibos – a really tasty, sweet-tart combination! Bright lime notes, yummy raspberry, the overall flavor is fruity, light, crisp & pleasantly sweet with just enough tart for contrast. Really nice cold-brewed!


Our Tea of the Week for February 13, 2023 is:

Lemon Meringue White Tea/Houjicha Blend – This blend is so seriously good! I just had some of it – as a boba tea – you can read my most recent tasting note for more details about that. So very good. A blend of Bai Mu Dan, Houjicha & lemons with a lovely vanilla meringue essence. Delicious.

(I haven’t yet finished packaging up this tea, so more will be added to the website as I finish packaging it!)


Our Tea of the Week for February 6, 2023 is:

Strawberry Fizzy Black Tea – a very special blend of black teas, including Nilgiri (so some care is needed when brewing, please don’t use boiling water!) plus strawberries, limes, spearmint leaves plus non-alcoholic champagne essence! Such a refreshing cocktail-inspired cuppa! (Especially nice when cold-brewed.)


And don’t forget about our Tea of the Week for January 30, 2023:

Cherry Almond GenmaichaNUT-FREE! Our Featured Reblend! I’ve had this one on the reblend list for a while – it’s one that did well on our August Reblend Month Poll last year – but because I didn’t have the necessary ingredients at the time, I didn’t reblend it. I finally was able to get those ingredients in – so here it is! Sweet, juicy cherries, nut-free almond essence (yes, it’s nut free!) and our deliciously roasty-toasty genmaicha! A wonderful balance of flavors!


Thank you so much for all your support!

I feel a bit like a mind reader with the Blood Orange Creamsicle blend, haha!

The new site looks great though, and I’m excited for this year’s 12 Days selection! :)

That’s not all – though – because you also mentioned on a totally different post from a different company about how you didn’t like the word “flan” – and our featured reblend for August … contains that word in the name in the tea. (I’ll be announcing the tea on Monday but I’m sure that totally gave it away anyway.)

52Teas said

Thanks about the comments on the new website. I spent a lot of hours on it – but I’m happy with it. It just – looks better. Maybe it’s just because I looked at the same website for 6 years but the other one felt so old fashioned and clunky.

Yay I’m glad these updates are back!

52Teas said

Thanks! :)

Sil select said

yay for the new site and updates!

52Teas said

Thank you! :)

I’m also very excited to see these updates again. Loving the new site, it looks great!
I’m so sad I missed the 12 Teas box…no idea how I managed that. I filled out the form, so hoping there is an extra I can purchase! :)

52Teas said

Amanda – I can’t make any promises just yet – but I suspect there will be enough for a box for you. I will contact you when I know more. In the meantime, thank you for filling out the form!

Thanks for the kind comments!

PS: The box went very quickly this year!

Ugh I already have a subscription and advent and placed 2 orders last weekend and now I see the two Nov teas, so far? Will try to resist another order

52Teas said

Well, you’ll get these two teas in your subscription – it’s going out this afternoon – in fact, in about an hour, we’ll be headed to the post office! :)

I missed this thread! Following for exciting updates now :D

AH as I was reading your description for ‘Sweet Zhang’, I was thinking of ‘Black Silk Chocolate Milk’ and then I read further and you mention it tasting like chocolate milk! Could this base work for a reblend of Black Silk Chocolate Milk?

52Teas said

To be honest, I’m not sure. The Qu Hao tea has a different profile than the Gu Zhang.

Sil select said

I’d be up for just more of the current one made lol

52Teas said

@Sil: What do you mean?

Sil select said

@anne – sorry for the delay in response. just wanted to buy some and you only had 1 left lol.

52Teas said

@Sil – there is more in stock. But, you should hurry and get it if you want some because it’s going quickly and I’m not – at this time – planning on reblending immediately.

Sil select said

@Anne – sending you a facebook msg :)

YAY for a banana tea joining D’s Teas!

I just brewed up Caramel Apple v2 today (before seeing this post). I also apparently tried the original (blended only by Frank, correct?) but have no recollection of the flavour. I like the base of v2 so hopefully v3 stands up to it!! Excited to try it when my next box ships! :D

52Teas said

Yes, the original batch was crafted by Frank. He utilized the Fujian Oolong (this v.3 utilizes the Fujian Oolong as well) I don’t think he used cinnamon in the tea though, but I like the cinnamon in there. I guess I just feel like apples and cinnamon belong together.

Kittenna said

I agree! I think I strongly associate the two. I see that v2 was a baked oolong; off the top of my head fujian oolong is meaning nothing to me. I really ought to get my oolong flavour profile straight one day!

52Teas said

@Kittenna: I enjoy both bases. I think the baked Oolong has more of a roasted flavor that gives the caramel apple notes more of a “baked apple” flavor – whereas with this Fujian Oolong, I get more of a straightforward caramel apple flavor – like dipping apples into caramel sauce (with a wee bit of cinnamon added to the caramel.)

Yep, I think that was me saying there weren’t enough raspberry cream teas. Thank you for heeding the call with Raspberry Parfait! :D

You were not alone! I am so excited for this one!
