Tea of the Week for September 4, 2017!

I have a confession. I have been cheating on tea with a cola. Not like all the time – not even every day . . . but every once in a while, I’ll crack open a can of the ginger cola that’s made by one of the 2 big cola giants. I’m not going to name names because I don’t want to get a ‘cease and desist’ order – but it’s in a slender, tall, bright copper-orange can and it’s sold by individual cans rather than by the 6 or 12 pack.

Anyway, I originally only bought one can of this stuff – you know – just to try it. Curiosity. But I was hooked after my first sip. It’s so good – that little touch of ginger cuts through the syrup-y sweetness that usually turns me off when it comes to soda.

I happen to like the cola flavored teas (in most cases, more than I like cola itself) so I decided I should try to craft a ginger cola black tea to get me over my affair with the cola because I like it better when tea is the main beverage in my life.

So I started with a base of black teas from China (Golden Yunnan, Fujian & Assamica grown in the Jing Mai Mountains) and added ginger as well as some candied (sugared) ginger and some cola essence. And WOWZA! I’m loving it! This is tasty as a hot tea but it excels as an iced tea!

ingredients: black teas

organic ingredients: ginger, candied (sugared) ginger & natural flavors

This smells 100% of cola which is awesome and even though this has sat in my travel mug all day, it tastes like cola as well, with a nice serving of ginger. I think I would like to try this hotter or colder as opposed to lukewarm but this is a nice start.

feel free to give me all of this one if you don’t love it haha.

Sil

Glad you’re getting to dig in to these though :)

I have so many untouched teas in my cupboard and yet it took getting these packages to get me to stop shopping for more tea. Well that and the emails that my packages are shipping :P

I keep reminding myself to shop in my own cupboard and/or crack open samples from swaps, but human nature is a funny thing.

From a recent 52Teas order.

I almost didn’t get this one because of the ginger, but ultimately I’m glad I did because it was really delightful! I’ll be perfectly honest though, ever since I cracked the code of ingredients generally used to recreate this ‘cola’ flavour in teas I’ve found that cola teas are a lot less magical tasting for me. It’s just citrus (lemon or lime) paired with a mix of chai spices – generally cinnamon, black pepper, and anise. And boom – cola!

The flavour is really strong in this one though, and quite smooth! Even now that I know the magic combo often used, I had a hard time mentally separating the ingredients in this one. Even the ginger just melded with everything else so smoothly! Though there were a few sips that brought me back to ‘Drink, Don’t Eat Grapefruit Sugar Scrub’ – probably because of the use of the candied ginger.

It’s actually probably the best cola flavoured tea I’ve had all year – and surprisingly I’ve had quite a few this year – like, probably at least ten? If you’re down with cola flavoured teas, I totally recommend this one!

VariaTEA

Anne, if you see this, can you make Banilla Marshmallow a thing?

52Teas

Do you mean with a black tea base? I have already made Banana Marshmallow Treat a thing. :)
