From 52teas

This was a suggestion from one of our customers, and I spent an hour digging through my email folders and searching our facebook page, but I couldn’t find the original suggestion anywhere, so I couldn’t put his or her name on the blend.

Anyway, when I first got the suggestion, I realized I was going to have to MAKE some Zabaglione to try, because not only had I not tried it before, but I had never HEARD of it before. Well after trying it (for those of you who never have, I would say it is something like a custardy (flavor, not texture) whipped cream with a hint of wine. After trying it, I was not at all sure that we would be able to make a tea that hinted of the complexity of Zabaglione, but after some trial and error, we now have…

Thank you, Azzrian, for the super extra especially yummy sample.

First off, this smells wonderful. Steep it? Still smells divine. It maintains a lovely fruity (strawberry) taste combined with smooth creaminess.

It’s very light and refreshing.

Thank you for sharing!

Attention everyone, this is how you do a creamy strawberry black tea! When you open the bag, there are huge chunks of strawberry pieces throughout and its like dipping your nose in a strawberry smoothie – the smell is that incredible. On the first sip you get that creamy-custardy-strawberry (or Zabaglioney) taste, which rounds off nicely with more strawberry. More strawberry! Heaven. And the tea base just kinda sits back and lets the flavours do their thing, which is grand. Can this tea last forever? Please? Please!

A very tasty strawberry black tea. I was disappointed by the weakness of the flavor compared to the scent (which is amazing), but that is somewhat normal for flavored teas. I get more of the flavor when exhaling after a sip than while actually drinking. I usually take my black tea plain, or with just milk, but this seems to taste best (i.e. the strawberry is strongest) with just a pinch of sugar. It is smooth enough to drink plain, though. I still need to try it iced sometime.

2nd steep (~6 minutes) is weaker, but drinkable.

A package arrived for me today with a bunch of samples generously provided to me by Bonnie. Many thanks to her. All of the teas smell DELICIOUS and I can’t wait to try them. When I came home, I was in the mood for something sweet because this one just SCREAMED sweet when I smelled it. I tried it plain and it wasn’t quite up to satisfying my massive sweet tooth on its own, so I added a packet of sweetener and now it’s perfect. Smooth and very sweet, a little creamy, and I like that the tea base isn’t overpowered. It reminds me of this strawberries and cream oatmeal I have at my house. This is very good. Thanks again to Bonnie.

I could smell the strawberries as soon as I opened the package. The tea is very creamy, strawberry tasting with a very nice black tea base. I think this tea is my favorite so far and this is a tea I would purchase which is saying a lot for someone who drinks black non flavored tea as much as I do. I really really liked this one.

Swap from Lariel!

I think I steeped this one a little too long, not that it’s bad, but I am tasting mostly the slightly bitter black tea base. There is a slight tart/sweet aspect and the mouthfeel is slightly thick (creamy). Going to retry this one a little later. It smelled so good when it was dry, so I know it was my bad.
No rating for now.


2-2.5 min is the sweet spot for this one typically :)

Yeah. I think I let it go for a bit longer. Thanks for the suggestion – I think that’s what I’ll aim for next time.

Thanks to another sample from Awkward Soul, I got to try a brand new tea this morning!

When dry, it smells strongly of strawberries. I wasn’t surprised. After steeping and waiting for it to cool a bit, I took a sip and thought, hmmm, I really don’t taste a heck of a lot of strawberry here. There is definitely a creamy mouthfeel to this tea. I would suppose that is the custard element. But I barely taste any strawberry, and some people mentioned wine—I didn’t get that at ALL.

Regardless, it was a pleasant enough cup of tea to start my day. Thanks again to Awkward Soul for the Ziploc of Goodies!

I’ve never had strawberry zabaglione but I’m glad it exists to inspire such a delicious tea. 1 teaspoon per 8 ounces at 200 degrees for 3 minutes in my Breville One-Touch. Steeps a light brown astringent liquor that pairs perfectly with the strawberry flavor. Added a dash of cream and sugar and this tastes like strawberries and cream while avoiding a sickly sweetness. It also has a touch of complexity that must be from the wine, that REALLY takes this above and beyond any strawberries and cream flavor I’ve ever had. I’m at the bottom of my cup and keep lifting it to my lips only to remember I’ve already gulped down the whole pot. This flavor is sexy. Can a flavor be sexy? And even the name, Strawberry Zabaglione… this must sell especially well around Valentines. A cup of this, a bouquet of roses and a box of chocolates. Yes, please!

I was greatly hoping that this would be an extraordinary custardy, creamy tea. To me, I just got black tea with the sweetness of strawberry. Where is the cream? Yes, I had it plain.. but I think there should be some creamy aspect to it! This is a decent tea, but I wish I could have tasted all of the dimensions others have mentioned.


did you wait for it to cool down? that’s when more of the creaminess comes through:)
