From 52teas

So, yesterday was Steven Moffat’s birthday. For my customers who don’t know who he is, I feel for you. For those of you who don’t care, please forgive my self-indulgent nerd fest this week; this week’s tea will probably “not compute” if you are not a Dr. Who fan.

If you happen to be someone from the BBC’s legal department, please don’t sue me. As cool as it would be to be sued for my Dr. Who fandom, I really don’t have any money, and it would be a shame to “Exterminate” 52teas. We’re mostly harmless (to mix nerd references).

So, I’m sure you are wondering, what exactly is a Weeping Angel tea? Well, what else could it be, but a tea flavored like my favorite Dr. Who snack? It’s a buttered toffee caramel corn flavored black tea, and it’s heavenly–amazing enough to make a weeping angel smile.

But… Don’t Blink! This one will be gone before you know it.

Soooo I only got started watching Doctor Who a couple months ago and when this tea came out I did not yet know of Weeping Angels. I might have still been in the second season? So I decided that when I got to Blink, I would enjoy it with a pot of this tea. (Must say, 9th doctor is still my fave.)

That day was clearly today! Flawed bubble teapot (good god I don’t even like the design of this teapot, if the lid is a certain way it forms a vacuum so then you just drip tea on your pants) and I sat down to watch. I have to say it was one of my favorites so far, and everyone is totally right…terrifying monsters these Weeping Angels are.

This tea is not terrifying on the other hand. I don’t really get the popcorn taste from it, but it is most definitely buttery toffee/caramel, and delicious. Sweet enough on its own to not need anything added, so you can down 24 oz of it in the span of one Doctor Who episode (I was thirsty though I’m pretty sure that this is going to be a regrettable course of action shortly).


Don’t blink!!!


Also I think you would like the mug I got as a Christmas present tonight… http://media.tumblr.com/dbb7f0e0b8ac8158e3f1afd42d7d3811/tumblr_inline_mf7hqj5bkf1r8oet0.jpg


Love it!

I think I suffered the same problem today with this tea as I did yesterday…I did rinse out my Timolino more, but I still got a very minor flavour with this. It was sweet, but that’s as much as I could perceive. I can’t really describe what I tasted aside from sweet. I know that it has been reformulated, but I don’t know which batch my sample came from. I think this is another one I will have to try again to drink out of my mug instead of Timolino.

This one is from CrowKettle, from our recent tea crawl and swap.


This one is from after Christmas but it has suffered some exposure and isn’t the strongest tea to begin with. It was the last of my bag!


Ok, I will try it again, because I want to catch that flavour.




Yeah, I’m not sure where I read it, but somewhere it said this tea had been reformulated…I thought.


Hmm, possible. I have a pouch that should have been from the original batch, and also half a pouch from the Christmas re-blend. I should check.

Day 7 of 52 Teas 12 days of Christmas.

I can see what everyone raves about. This one smells like a black tea with creamy toffee. It smells like crunch n munch. The tea tastes a moderately bold black base. There is toffee flavours. A slight bit of salt. I am not getting much popcorn though.

Sipdown!! (226)

I ended up making a 16 oz mug of this so the whole sample Roswell Strange sent got dumped into my gravity steeper to be steeped for 2 minutes in water that was just below a boil.

I am definitely picking up the black base, as per usual with a 52 tea black blend. There is also a hint of caramel and a bit of butteryness. However, the caramel flavor pales in comparison to the Je t’aime I had last night. This isn’t a bad cup but it isn’t anything special either, imo. Thank you Roswell Strange for giving me the chance to try this tea! 52 Teas are so hard to get a hold of so it is always nice when you can give one a taste without having to commit to the full 2 oz bag.

I’m not a Dr. Who fan, I’ve never watched Dr. Who, I’ve never even Googled Dr. Who…I once walked by the BBC section of FYE and saw the DVD case but that’s it. I am however a huge dessert tea fanatic and buttered toffee caramel corn black tea sounds like heaven to me.

I steeped it at 212 for 3 minutes, and I find with 52teas I have to let the tea cool a bit before I get the flavor. But on the first sip I get some caramel and a fabulously delicious black tea base, I have totally fallen in love with 52teas black tea base. As it cools I get a more buttery feeling and flavor. I’m not sure I can taste the toffee, either that or caramel and toffee are too similar in a tea to be differentiated. Or they just combine and complement so well that it doesn’t matter.

This is a tea that I really enjoy, and I will be happy it’s in my desk drawer for a while, but I won’t reorder it. I really like it, but I don’t LOVE it.

This is just an ok tea for me. I definitely get toffee flavour and I can see where the popcorn is going. But, it is almost a little too salty. Next time, I will have to add some sweetener and see where that takes the flavour.

Jake’s been working very late hours, so I was delighted to be able to wake him up early so we could have tea before going our separate ways today… and not seeing each other until tomorrow morning. Because he is such a Whovian, we decided to sample this blend. Here’s what I did:

Teaware: 16oz travel mug
Measured dry: 2tsp
Temperature: Boiling
Steeping Time: 4min
Additives 4tsp raw sugar

While this doesn’t really harken to the weeping angels for us, it does, as Jake said, remind him of something strange and jumbled that could have been mixed up in the Tardis. “Wibbledy wobbley timey wimey” sorts of stuff.

It does have a creaminess that lends itself very well to being sweetened, and the toffee stands out prominently. There are some other flavors mixed up on top of that, but at the moment we’re having a difficult time picking them out.

Sipdown! Yay, working my way back down to a manageable 50 (plus a few samples, but those don’t count, right?)

ETA: I fail on the trimming down my cupboard front. I needed a new iced tea pitcher, so just ordered one from DavidsTea… along with 2 individual teas + the entire summer collection. Sigh, I’m incorrigible.

Boiling 2 min, 30 sec

Haha, just wait till you get 300+ teas in your cupboard like some people I know. ;) I’d be really happy just to get back into double digits.

Another back logged tea from the Christmas box, whoops. Well I am to catch up fully today, not my husband is at home for the holidays (he goes back on Boxing Day) we can at least share tea, eat snacks and play computer games together…out version of a perfect holiday.

I can taste some toffee flavour amongst the strong black tea and it does offer some sweetness but it’s only light. Light enough to also be buttery but it gets quickly taken over by the black tea. Frankly it tastes like any generic sweet black tea. So similar to many other 52Teas blends. Sorry I’m not impressed with this one.
