drank Strawberry Zabaglione by 52teas
200 tasting notes

Brewed hot, this was meh. I was wondering what all the fuss was about. When I let it cool – it was delicious, but unfortunately I only had one sample so I couldn’t really do a proper cold brewing.

So today, when I got my 52teas grabbag order in and this came, I just HAD to try it cold brewed and ……. WOW. This is amazing tea. I can taste the strawberries and the cream wonderfully. No sugar necessary. This would be a GREAT conversion tea to try and show people how great tea can be without any sweetener. I bet it would be even more amazing WITH sweetener, but for now I am just enjoying the pure taste of it. I can’t wait to share it with the boyfriend, who usually loves this type of stuff and says, “Are you SURE there’s no sweetener in there?”. I’ll keep you posted on what he thinks.

So the short story is, a few years ago I was VERY MUCH into tea. And then a lot of things happened, and I got out of tea for a while. And now, I’m back.ⁿ

To me, tea is the missing puzzle piece for my healthy lifestyle. When I drink tea I am encouraged to eat healthy and be active. I drink tea because I simply enjoy the taste, but the health aspects are just an added bonus.

I love all types of teas, although greens and oolongs tend to be my favorite. I’ll drink herbals if I’m feeling a little under the weather. And recently I’ve been getting more into young shengs (also chasing that elusive “cha qi”).

Unless otherwise stated, I drink my teas straight. I’ve been doing gongfu mostly these days, so I use a ceramic gaiwan with an electric kettle. For greens and some oolongs, I’ll do a western style with a glass mug or regular infuser. I try to specify if my brewing parameters are outside the norm.

I’m kinda strict when rating my teas. I rarely give a tea above a 95. Teas that I really like I keep in the 95-85 category. I’ve yet to give a tea 100 yet. So, if you see a tea about 95, that means I thought it was an amazing tea!

ⁿ – Note: I did step away from tea for a while.. again. But now I’m back for REALZ. Usually I have to put this interest on hold when real life takes over, so I’m hoping for no major life events these days.
