This one just seemed like a great idea when I saw that it was available. I love coconut, cardamom, and the taste of French toast. I’m middle-of-the-road about maple.

So this time I dumped the entire tester envelope into my Breville. When it was finally ready, it smelled divine. Funny, I love coconut but I didn’t get much coconut flavor in this one. I got the French toast for sure, and some cardamom. It was tasty, but it just seemed weak for me again. Even the black tea wasn’t very strong. Maybe I’m just not used to such subtleTEAS? (Womp womp womp…)

I’m going to continue playing with the proportions of tea leaf to water, because all the 52 Teas testers I ordered smell divine and I want them to taste that way, too.

Flavors: Maple

How many ounces does your Breville hold?

Rachel Sincere

Hi! I’ve been playing with tea/water ratios. The thing is, the amount of tea in the envelope and the amount of water the Breville holds are both in the metric system. I’m not used to measuring tea and water that way. So I’ve settled on 30 g of loose leaf tea to anywhere between 750 and 1000 mls of water. I don’t know if that helps you any. I know that when I look up 30 g, it says 6 tsp, but what I’m pouring into the brew basket doesn’t look like 6 tsp to me. It looks like about four tsp.

Hmm, a 52Teas sample size is approximately 15 grams.

A teaspoon of dry leaf is approximately 2 to 3 grams depending on the type of tea and additions.

If I am not mistaken, Anne has a Breville and will likely be of more help to advise you on leaf to water ratios etc.

Hi again. I’m glad you posted. I misspoke before. I’m using the 15 g testers. I’m sorry for the confusion! I’m using 15 g loose leaf to between 750 and 1000 mls. thanks for clarifying!

Bio

44-year-old empty nester, mother of one 21-year-old young man who is a senior at UW-Madison. I live in Two Rivers, Wisconsin, near Lake Michigan. I love to read, embroider, play my ukulele, and drink tea, of course!

I have written 100 reviews over the years. One thing that’s changed is that I used to put two packages of Splenda in an 8-oz. cup of tea. Now I wonder how I even tasted the tea. I’m down to about 1/2 to 1 packet of Stevia per full mug.

About my cupboard—I have listed every tea that I have 1 oz. or more. Most teas I have about 3-4 oz. Feel free to ask for a trade. I love to trade! I will warn you now that sometimes I’m a slow mailer so you shouldn’t send me your part of the trade until you’ve gotten your package from me. I won’t be offended!

TEA LIKES: Blacks, Greens, Whites, and these flavors: Berry, nut, coconut, spice, sweet, crème, pineapple, citrus, cranberry, mint, marshmallow, vanilla…

TEA DISLIKES: Strong bergamot, sour, tangy, tart, earthy, pu erh, strong oolongs (they smell like manure to me), Jasmine, floral, smoky, hibiscus, rooibos…
