From 52teas

Where has this week gone? I can’t believe I haven’t posted the new Tea of the Week yet. And this is a fun tea! I’m really surprised I haven’t done this yet, given the popularity of our Strawberry Zabaglione black teas, but I guess I’m doing it now.
Here’s some delicious chun mee Chinese green tea blended with freeze-dried strawberries and organic flavors. If you enjoy our Strawberry Zabaglione black tea, you’re not going to want to miss the green tea version.

I don’t recall if I’ve ever had a Zabaglione. I grew up in and around NYC, and I’ve been to my share of Italian restaurants, bakeries, and cafés, but I always tended to order things like tiramisu and cannoli, or occasionally tartufo. But this tea was delicious. I’d really like it if the creamy custard flavors were more pronounced, but maybe it wouldn’t be as true to the taste of the dessert this was created to emulate. This would be a tea I’d gladly reorder.

Guys, I’m super excited that I won the 52Teas giveaway this month! EEEEEE. Anyway, this is one of Frank’s blends that I’m slow to write a note for. Green tea with strawberries. Sadly, this blend has hardly any flavor of anything at this point, even the green tea. Though I appreciate how many strawberries were thrown in the blend. I used two teaspoons because of this. Sadly, the flavor isn’t what I would wish. Though that probably is my fault and not the tea’s. It’s almost gone anyway. So many teas and how quickly they fade. Usually a tea doesn’t fade THIS quickly. If they would stay fresh, I’d probably stock a billion more teas anyway. It’s probably for the best.

In defense of this tea – this one is over 4 years old . . .

tea-sipper

Sorry, I thought I mentioned this one was older? And I definitely don’t expect teas to taste perfect forever. I do have many four year old teas that still taste the same as when they were new though. Thanks again for the giveaway!

52Teas

You’re very welcome! I enjoy doing the giveaway! Unfortunately, we’re quickly approaching June (already! I can’t believe it’s nearly here!!!) and I’ll have to stop it again for a while because I’ll have a lot on my plate with prepping for the Christmas box (again … already?!?) and I won’t have time to do the upkeep with the giveaway that is required.

Yes, I know that some teas are able to last – I have some teas that have lasted an astonishingly long time as well. I think it has a lot to do with how they’re stored. Back in my review days, I would keep the many teas that I received for review (both purchased and received in return for the review) in the packaging that they came in – and then I would put those packages in a very large (2 Kilo capacity) tin. I have found that some of those teas are still quite fresh – while others that I have not stored in this way – and that are quite a bit ‘newer’ – have lost a little flavor. So this could be storage – or it could be just – the tea didn’t hold up. Who knows? Only the tea leaves know and they’re not talking – at least not in a language that is readily understood! Haha!

I do hope you’ll enjoy the teas I have for this month – when you were the winner of this month, I smiled because I think that at least one of them is definitely going to be something that you appreciate.

tea-sipper

I know, I can’t believe it is already April! I know storage is the most important thing for teas. I never had the idea of putting smaller pouches in big tins for extra freshness though! Plus the tin would help keep them cooler. The Strawberry was kept in a decent resealable pouch so I was a little surprised at the lack of flavor. I’m doing a little jig that you think I will especially appreciate one of the blends because I definitely already REALLY appreciate ALL the blends! I won’t say what I hope it is, as there are so many I would mention anyway. :D

Thanks Marzipan for this one. I’m enjoying it. The weather is gross out and we are supposed to get rain (lots of rain) for the next 3 days. Strawberry cake/custard in a cup. Nice way to keep the 3 o’clock munchies way.

Day 11 in the 2014 12 Teas of Christmas sampler.

I had a second cup of this this afternoon to refresh my memory, as it’s been a couple of weeks since the last time I drank it. Inexplicably, something rather drastic has changed in those two weeks. It’s a good job I remember really enjoying this tea the first time round, or I would be rating it pretty low. I thought I had steeped it the same both times, so I’m not really sure what has caused the difference…

So the first time around, this tea was delicious. Even my little brother loved it. It was fresh strawberries, with vanilla and cakey flavours. It reminded me more of cake and ice cream than custard, but who’s going to complain about that? I was expecting more of the same when I brewed it up today. The scent of the dry leaf was how I remembered, but when I added the water I recoiled a bit. Almost straight away, there was a strong smoky odour which became more powerful than the strawberry smell. First sip confirmed that the smoke was also in the taste. Yuck. Who wants smoky strawberry? The creamy cakey flavours has disappeared, too, so I was left with a very disappointing cup. I still don’t understand why. At first I assumed the sample must have been contaminated, but that’s not possible – it’s in a sealed pouch, and was stored with the rest of the twelve teas sampler, none of which have been contaminated. I read through a few of the tasting notes from other steepsterites before writing up the note, and noticed that Kittena has noted a similar smokiness, which leads me to think it’s just a feature of the tea which I managed to avoid with my first cup. I will definitely have to experiment with steep times, amount of leaf and water temperature to try and coax out the deliciousness that I got first time around.

Thanks to beelicious for this sample as well. A strawberry green tea sounded like a good candidate for making iced tea with, but I wanted to try this one hot first to get a general idea. The dry blend smells like strawberries and cream, as well as having that indescribable “dark green tea” aroma that is creamy in its own way, and almost powdery (am I making any sense here? Maybe I associate it with matcha powder). In terms of taste, the strawberry flavor is very fresh and natural. The tea base has a lot of presence—it’s a little grassy, just a little bitter but in a way that is enjoyable for green teas, and definitely “dark green”. Even more so than the Long Island Strawberry green tea I tried recently from Banff Tea Co, this blend is one where the tea itself doesn’t try to play hide-and-seek. Given that quality, it might actually make a better hot brew than cold brew—I can imagine it being a little too heady for a summery iced tea. But it’s definitely tasty!

A few days ago I started my morning with this tea and have decided to do so again, only that this time it’s iced. I cold steeped some two days ago and have been drinking it since, it was a nice way to finish the last of this sample. This morning is the last glass full and I have to say that this went down better than I thought it would. Usually with sweet iced tea (particularly fruit sweet) it becomes too pop like and ends up tasting like pure sugar. This however, tastes refreshing and the sweetness is toned down behind a perfumed, grassy green tea flavour. If anything the sweet essence is an after taste that doesn’t last too long. I’m wondering if Frank intended this one to be iced.

Nice start to the day :)

52teas’ 12 Teas of Christmas Day 11! (Drank Dec. 11)
A green tea (not sencha!), with obvious strawberry bits… I don’t know what exactly this could be, but I’m hoping for good things. The aroma is a bit smoky and fruity, which actually seems to work; the flavour is accordingly smoky and fruity strawberry, which is actually pretty tasty. I am definitely a fan of 52teas blends using green bases other than sencha (e.g. Sun & Cloud Mist. Yums.)

Scratching off the label, this is apparently Strawberry Zabaglione Chun Mee. Interesting – I really don’t think it comes off as ‘zabaglione’ at all, but it’s certainly an interesting and fairly tasty tea. A good selection for the 12 Teas.

Off-topic, but what do you think of the actual dessert? I’ve never tried it before, nor have I ever seen it anywhere either. Is it basically like a custard or similar to wanna cotta (which granted, I’ve never experienced before either)?

Kittenna

TBH I haven’t actually tried zabaglione to my knowledge, but I believe people have compared it to custard previously, and I wasn’t getting any sort of creaminess at all. Would be an interesting dessert to try though!

Also, laughing greatly at ‘wanna cotta’ :D :D :D (I’ve have panna cotta, and I believe it was a gelatinous custardy delicious thing).

Nattie

I didn’t get smoke at all the first time I drank this tea, and after reading your tasting note smoke is all I can taste!

Backlog:

I loved the black tea version of 52Teas’ Strawberry Zabaglione, so I was pretty sure I’d love the lighter base of this green tea version. I think I might like it better, because I love the buttery notes that are enhanced because of the lightly buttery green tea. It really accentuates the custard-y notes well.

So good! The softer base allows these flavors to really develop. The strawberry is sweet and a little tart, the custard notes are sweet and creamy, and the green tea tastes fresh and soft. A yummy treat!

LOL I have to admit that when I opened this up and smelled something like coconut, I wanted to groan. Don’t get me wrong, I like coconut in teas and otherwise, it’s just that alot of teas seem to have coconut as a flavor and I don’t want to get tired of it. But I wasn’t in the mood to go hunting for another sample.

1st sip, I did taste a coconutty flavor, and a bare hint of strawberries.

You ever taste a tea and the 1st sip is exactly what the description is, but then the rest of the tea tastes somewhat bland? Yeah, that just happened.
I might be inclined to buy this as a Iced tea pack if it is still available this summer. But if it’s reblended in general….Probably won’t be interested.
