From 52teas

I apologize if this disappoints anyone, but this week’s tea tastes like neither napalm nor ferrets. And no animals were harmed in the manufacture of the tea.

Instead, what we have here is a tea blend from the warped imagination of one of our former tea bar customers. I’m honestly not sure exactly what it means or why it was so important to him, but then, that’s kind of the way a lot of the conversations at Zoomdweebie’s went for me–a bit over my head: like, outer space over my head. But that’s okay.

After explaining to me that he really wanted me to make a Napalm Ferret tea, Joe and I sat down to determine what exactly would constitute a Napalm Ferret tea. He decided right away that it needed to be a gunpowder base, with bananas because ferrets like bananas, I guess. It also needed cinnamon chips and just a touch of cayenne pepper. And that is how Napalm Ferret tea was born.

If you would like to support our effort to reopen Zoomdweebie’s Tea Bar, so that creative minds like Joseph’s can continue to thrive in a groovy environment like our tea bar, PLEASE visit our crowd-funding campaign page via the link above. Alternatively, if you think folks like Joseph should not be left freely wandering the streets, PLEASE support our crowd-funding effort so we can corral him with the rest of the freaks and geeks that make up Zoomdweebie’s. We promise, they’ll likely spend a lot of time at the tea bar and less time wandering the streets thinking about napalm ferrets and quoting Charlie the Unicorn.

For what it’s worth, this is actually a very unique and delicious tea blend.

Yours truly has finally gotten around to using my Xi Shi Yixing teapot, like I am actually using it as I type, for some Da Yu Ling oolong. It seems it seasoned up really nicely because not a ton of flavor is being slurrped up by a thirsty teapot. I remember when I first seasoned my Duan Ni elephant pot, the first couple Puerhs I had were a bit bland because that clay was so porous, so I actually ended up seasoning it more than once, just letting it soak in Puerh for HOURS. Next I need to test out how my Second Flush Darjeeling seasoned Duan Ni pot (sans lid) turned out, and get another pot for First Flush, Dan Cong, Silver Needle, Lapsang Souchong, Pouchong…tea is a lifestyle, yo.

So, it is Thursday, meaning it is time to warm up the way back notebook and have a TBT tea review! Specifically we are celebrating the relaunch of 52Teas’ Kickstarter with one of their more uniquely named concoctions. And speaking of Kickstarter, if anyone wants to back the campaign at the $10 level and send me the pouch (specifically of Marshmallow Treat) then I will gladly accept the donation with love :P. Napalm Ferret! That is a name you have to shout, because apparently this tea is fiery and ferret like, because ferrets eat bananas. A blend of Gunpowder green, freeze dried bananas, cinnamon chips, cayenne pepper, and organic flavors, long time readers of this blog know that if there is a tea that is legit spicy I tend to seek it out, even though I not only cannot digest spicy things I also tend to not like spicy foods, but spicy teas are one of those things that I love. I guess in liquid form I can handle it, So the aroma of this tea is really quite sweet, like a banana Popsicle (my personal favorite as a sick kid) along with a tiny hint of a smoke, a sizable kick of cinnamon, and a nose tingling hot burst of cayenne pepper. All in all, this is one weird blend of smells, but not gross, peppery bananas seem to work, as does cinnamon, and smoke…just never had them all at once.

The brewed leaves are all banana Popsicle with a touch of cinnamon and spice, but mostly it is all banana, seriously I need to get some banana Popsicles next time I am at the store, it is one of those fruit flavors that I actually like. The liquid has a lot more smoke and cayenne pepper, it smells hot, my nose is not melting off, but it is certainly making my eyes water!

So, when I tasted this tea, I was in my basement lair entertaining Ben as my guest and a bunch of spiders (because basement) and I was talking about my trepidation with this tea, because I am a weeny with hot things. Getting over my fear after waiting for it to cool to drinking temperature, the beginning of the sip is mild, a blend of sweet banana and a touch of smoke then OMG OMG OMG HOT!!!! I actually wrote in my notebook, and I quote ‘heat, hot, cough, death. Really tasty, but Jebus!’ Ben had a good laugh at my expense after he checked to make sure my coughing was from the cayenne pepper and not triggering an asthma attack (it does that sometimes) but peril aside, I enjoyed this tea, the initial sip’s surprising explosion of cinnamon and cayenne pepper at the midtaste because less surprising so I did not choke each time I drank some, which is something good when drinking tea.

You know what? This is very spicy, but less spicy than I expected. I love the feeling of the cayenne at the back of my mouth and the subtle banana taste is interesting. I actually really enjoyed this even if my mouth felt weird for the rest of the day. I wouldn’t buy it. It’s a fun tea to try once

TTB 11: The name definitely gets your attention. When steeping, this tea smells like some kind of candy that I can’t quite place. I was prepared for the slight burn in the back of my throat this one causes. This one tastes like cinnamon and some kind of fruity candy, I really can’t think of just what candy it reminds me of

This is so WEIRD! And I like weird. It smells kind of like cinnamon gum. When I sip it I get a wave of heat from the spices and then I’m left with the fruity banana aftertaste. I don’t think the spice level is too hot at all, but I am known to put hot sauce on my chocolate chip cookies at times. I also really like banana flavoring and this is the first 52 banana tea I have tried. I like it!

So I braced myself for heat and got…nothing. Maybe I did this wrong. Honestly for me, this is a miss on all counts. I am not getting the banana that I usually love and none of the cayenne heat, aside from maybe a very slight hint in my throat as it goes down. I am getting cinnamon. Not a bad cinnamon mind you, but just cinnamon. I have about 2 tsps left and I am hoping those will deliver more than this cup is. Nonetheless, I am super happy to have gotten the chance to try it. At the end of the day, it is still a pleasant enough cup. Thank you Kat_Maria for sharing it with me.


With a name like that, I wouldn’t expect ANYONE to like it.

…ick. There’s not much flavour to this tea – just an odd banana-ish note hiding behind a tongue-wrecking heat and spice. In fact, I think the only nice thing I can say about this tea is that my cats are showing no interest in it (and they’re usually sneaky little tea-sippers).

Down the drain it goes, I’m afraid.

Napalm ferret? Sounds as though it lives up to its name!


Haha, I bought it as kind of a joke to serve for my birthday party. My husband and his cousin absolutely loved it :D


Wait, someone actually liked this? Yuck…

A nice spicy kick, not overpowering, but definitely there. When it cooled a bit it reminded me of fried plantains.
