From 52teas

Since this week’s Monday just so happens to also be the 4th of July, I decided I HAD to create something to commemorate the holiday. At first, I thought about maybe doing an apple pie-ish type of blend – because what’s more American than apple pie? But then I decided that I wanted to do something Red, White and Blue to honor our flag.

Red was pretty easy: Raspberry! It was actually a toss-up between strawberry and raspberry, but I decided that I wanted raspberry because the tangy raspberry note would be an interesting contrast for the sweet, creamy notes of the White: Coconut! Blue seemed pretty obvious: Blueberry!

So I utilized these flavors and combined them with my organic black tea base of Chinese (Yunnan) and Indian (Ceylon & Assam) teas. Then I added just a touch of Keemun to the base to round out the flavor and create a nice fullness. It has a really nice, fruity flavor to it and while it’s not apple pie – it’s a really tasty celebration of our nation’s colors!

organic ingredients: black teas, blueberries, coconut, raspberries and natural flavors.

Sipdown (304)

I got this sample from Kittenna probably around a year ago and I am finally getting to it today. If I am being honest, my reasoning behind this sipdown is kinda silly but yesterday I had 3 sipdowns and wrote 3 Sororitea Sisters tea reviews and I decided to track that in my bullet journal but actually wrote down the information for today instead of yesterday. So rather than crossing that out, I decided to just write 3 reviews and drink 3 sipdowns today. This was an easy one to hit that number.

It is also a nice tasting tea which makes for a smooth sipdown. I’m getting a lot of blueberry despite their being no actual blueberries in the dry leaf in my filter and lots of raspberries. There is a touch of raspberry among the blueberry and maybe a slight coconut creaminess but if I had to blindly guess, I would say this was a blueberry tea through and through. Thank you for the share Kittenna!

Yeah, I don’t know. I got berry and occasional tart sips on a nice smooth base. The coconut was missing for me altogether, but perhaps the slightest bit of it mellowed things out on the second steep.

Gotta say that this grows on you. I’ve been drinking this throughout the day: four cups in all. Still barely there coconut for me. Even still, delicious.

I was clearly on a raspberry kick last time I ordered from 52Teas, and here’s another one. When raspberry flavour is well done, though, it does make for great tea! I used 1 tsp of leaf for my cup, and gave it 3.5 minutes in boiling water. It was nice to see a whole raspberry and blueberry in my scoop, plus a large coconut flake – all ingredients represented!

To taste, this one is heavier on the coconut than I expected, but I think that’s a good thing. It’s rare to find a coconut tea, or at least, I’ve not come across many in my 5 years of loose leaf tea obsession. The fruit flavours are definitely secondary, although there are well-defined blueberry and raspberry notes towards the end of the sip. The blueberry is a touch more prominent than the raspberry, I think.

All in all, I’m really enjoying this one. Lots of coconut, and some (very) complimentary fruits, and on a black tea base as well. It was always going to be a win with me!

Have you tried this once iced? It’s an amazing iced tea!

I went on a sample-buying binge a while back (stop judging me, I can feel you judging me). This is one I picked up that I liked pretty well hot, and then forgot about.

Today I was struggling with my attempts to quit soda (hellllp meeeeeeeeeee) so I decided to make an iced tea instead. I was sifting through my basket and spotted this.

“Blueberries, raspberries, and coconuts, plus black tea, iced? Sure. That probably won’t suck.”

And lo, it did not suck. The raspberries and blueberries were sassy buddies, and the coconut laid a sweet blanket over the whole thing. As a warning, though: if you don’t like coconut, don’t make this iced. Cold, this tea is super-coconut-y. It tastes a lot like the coconut-milk-infused curry I had with lunch, bringing my meal full circle.

I miss soda, but tea is helping.

Smaple from kittenna I think my only “complaint” on this one is that i want the fruity flavour to pop a little more. I quite like the fruit + coconut in this, almost refreshing even as a black tea. The base is nice and blends well with the flavours..i just wish the fruit would come out a little more as the coconut makes it sort of fuzzy and creamy haha.

Thanks kittenna!

10Sep – dry leaf smell cocnut, berries, and sweet.
I’m impressedd with the amount of dried berries in the blend. Big pieces of berries right on top and throughout bag.
3min- tastes of blueberries, red berry and coconut. Flavors blend nicely and none of the berry tastes artificially bright. Berry aftertaste lingers after finish. Black base is solid and smooth. 2nd steep very much a repeat of 1st. Really like this one. 88

Sipdown! 33/365

Coconut had just the barest aroma of going off, so I figured I’d drink this one down. No regrets, it was delicious. Primarily blueberry (there were no fruits in my infuser at all – must have been used up previously), but overall a very tasty fruity, creamy, cup of tea.

Sipping on a cup of this week’s tea of the week at the moment.

I’m really pleased with how this one turned out (yeah, I probably say that a lot). The blueberry and coconut are probably the two most prominent flavors but the raspberry pops toward the end of the sip.

I really like this one iced so I might just have to keep an extra pouch of it for myself so that I can brew up a pitcher of iced tea in the next few days.

Sounds delicious.
