From 52teas

The ice cream shop was out of my favorite butter pecan ice cream a while back, so I decided we should create a butter pecan ice cream tea!

Here it is: our premium black tea blended with organic vanilla bean bits, pecan pieces and natural vanilla, pecan and (just a touch) butter flavors. I made a big iced cup of this to take home today. I was going to save a little for my wife to try, but (sorry Sheri) it didn’t last that long. I know most people enjoy these nutty kinds of tea hot, but it was a delicious iced tea, let me tell you–a nice bold black iced tea with just a solid hint of vanilla-y, buttery pecan goodness. Yum. I hit the bottom of my cup way sooner than I anticipated.

I just got in some tea samples from MeghannM (Thanks Meghann!) and so I thought I would start my day off with some black tea. I selected this one and boy am I glad that I did it is buttery and nutty a very nice blend from 52Teas.

I was a little worried about what the black tea in the background would taste like but I was pleasantly surprised when I tasted it to find that it is a very smooth cup and I don’t have to add sugar or milk. It is nice all on it’s own! Thanks again Meghann!!

I actually really enjoy this with a little milk (actually, cream – milk just doesn’t compare) and sugar. It has a tendency to taste a little thin with no additions but the addition of cream and sugar really kicks it up a notch. The butter aspect is more to the fore, and it becomes lovely and creamy. The sugar makes it taste like I am drinking hot ice cream! Definitely going to bump this up a little on the ratings front.

Caved and got this tea a while back (before it showed up on the Select obviously, d’oh!) because I was seduced by the idea of a tea that tasted like a) ice cream, and b) a type of ice cream I love. Mmmm creamy and sweet and nutty oh my!! ::happy dance!:: Ahem, okay back to the tea…

I steeped according to the package directions, but I was a little worried I might end up with something ickily bitter because I wasn’t able to control the time as much as usual (moving (the bane of my existance), has necessitated me packing up all my beloved tea stuff, and the only strainer I have on hand is incredibly leaky resulting in a lot of the tea actually ending up in the bottom of the cup, and hence oversteeped). But no need to fret, the cup has no trace of bitterness, even from the little bits still swimming around happily in there (thankfully they settle well). The dry tea smelled lovely (say it with me: creamy and sweet and nutty oh my!) and there were big chunks of pecan amongst the leaves. The taste seems a bit muted compared to the smell. It definitely has a faint sort of maple-y sweetness, and a creamy sort of note when I swallow but the nutty pecan goodness is hiding from me.

The black tea flavour is definitely present and pleasant with decent strength but little bitterness. This could be a cup I could drink sans milk or sweetner, but in the name of experimentation I added some to see if it’d round out the tea and maybe bring out those elusive nuts? A spash of milk and half a sweetner packet did make this taste creamier and sweeter, helping the ice cream comparison, but unfortunately didn’t do anything to make it taste more pecan-y.

Overall from my first cup of this I say that it is a yummy, fairly mild and easy to drink black tea with a natural sweetness, creamy notes, no bitterness, and good with or without additives. Unfortunately it seems closer to a “Vanilla ice cream” or “Maple ice cream” tea then a Butter Pecan one because I just can’t find the nuts! I’m hoping playing around with the steeping might bring it out a bit more? Does anyone have any suggestions?

UPDATE: Okay, when I stick my nose into my cup and inhale I can definitely smell pecans and when I exhale after taking a sip I can sort of smell them for a moment. Are all my ten thousand or so taste buds just broken? o_O

Another fun tea! This one comes to me courtesy of Jenn.

Steeped according to my usual parameters and lightly sweetened. The tea base is good, I do get the butter pecan flavor. It is close to maple and cream, but really still tastes like butter pecan. Yum!

Thank you, Jenn!

Butter Pecan + Ice Cream = Very Bad
Butter Pecan + Tea = Very, Very Good

I’m not a fan of butter pecan, but apparently that’s because I haven’t had it in tea before. This is a great dessert tea and not nearly as heavy and syrupy tasting as I would have expected. The tea has a fair amount of astringency, but I think that helps keep it from being overly sweet tasting. The butter pecan flavor is fairly strong, but it doesn’t taste artificial. This would probably make a really great breakfast tea as well. Prepared with almond milk and stevia.

I went out on a limb and decided to purchase this from 52teas (my first order from them actually) and even though black teas aren’t really my thing, this sounded too good to pass up. Trying this hot right after it was done steeping and it was mainly black tea that I could taste and a buttery pecan flavor. After it cooled down a bit I could pick up on the sweet vanilla taste. This is quite good for a black tea, but I would prefer a bit more of the pecan taste in there.. perhaps I will find another good black tea with nuts in it and mix it with this to see if that will give it that extra nutty taste that I am seeking ;-)

Oh boy am I getting supremely bored with the tea selection available in my hometown. This is where 52teas rides galliantly to my rescue every week or so, my almost-regular knight in shiny packaging to save me from the dull, the uninspiring, the gross, the dragons!
The dry leaves have this fabulously buttery vanilla aroma, with the pecan becoming more apparant once its brewed. This tea is surprisingly tasty plain but adding a bit of milk brings out this lovely creaminess, perfectly underlined by the pecan flavor.
I can see how this would be amazing iced, but I really cannot bring myself to brew it any other way but piping hot yet! Perhaps I will save some for a mild winter day…

Pretty sure I could have munched on this straight out of the package. It smells just like Butter Pecan ice cream. Which, to be honest, isn’t my favorite (that would be cookies & cream, Frank, hint), but I’m suddenly craving a big bowl of it.

This tastes just like you’ve melted a little spoonful into a cup of strong black tea. As it cools, it gets smoother, and to me, the pecan flavor is strongest, followed up by the vanilla and buttery ice cream flavors. I may have brewed it too long (5 minutes, I had meant to go 3 for the first cup), but it’s still a delicious cup of tea. I’ve already got the second steep brewing up!!

I like the hint to Frank! Yum cookies and cream!

Did I use enough leaf?? There is hardly any non “tea” flavour here. I get some caramel, but only a hint of pecan.
Either way, it was a nice tea… just not what I expected. Pretty standard… and a little maple syrupy. Fingers crossed that I get more out of a second steeping!!
Big thankyou to JENN for the sample!

I had a cup of this yesterday I got this awhile back from Meghann M. so thank you very much. Dry I smelled the black tea and a natural smelling vanilla with abit of nuttiness. Taste wise I taste the black tea with a medium natural vanilla with some nuttiness,I believe I oversteeped it though because the pecans were a though bitter. This tea though Is pretty good and in fact really good on my view, on the vanilla ,because usually vanilla Is over the top to me but this is not.
