From A Quarter to Tea

Slightly smokey, slightly tart, with a touch of Nilgiri for body. This savory tea is a new twist on a brunch drink.

Trying this one again for National Pizza Day! It pretty much tastes like pizza sauce, so it seemed like the perfect fit. It has tomato in it, so the sauce base is there. On top of that there are herbs that hit me like oregano. I think it works better as a pizza sauce tea than a bloody mary tea! It’s a little more enjoyable with that mindset, but still not a tea I enjoy. This being probably my least favorite AQ2T blend. Maybe I should pick a second tea for pizza day. One that I like. :/

I was thinking maybe something with fennel, that always reminds me of sausage…

I love fennel (and sausage… and fennel-y sausage!)

I like weird pizza toppings. Pesto and potato. Kafir lime powder and coconut shavings. Pear and gorgonzola. BBQ sauce instead of pizza sauce. I’m going to have to think on this a bit to find the perfect tea.

I actually hate regular pizza sauce (tomato) and can only stomach it if it is super light and there are lots of toppings. I have some weird texture issues… so I always get pizzas with some sort of “alternative” sauce (garlic, ranch, BBQ, etc.) As an Idahoan, potato on pizza is pretty common in the specialty/mom and pop shops around here! One that I quite like has a ranch sauce topped with cheese, hashbrowns, and bacon. Nom! They also had a chicken and cashew pizza that I adored.

I have only ever been able to find one place that puts potato on pizza here in CA, Extreme Pizza. We ended up ordering some last night. I got the potato/pesto pizza and their gorgonzola/sage/walnut one!

Thank you to CrowKettle for this sample. I was interested to try this, but knew I wouldn’t enjoy it.

Savoury teas are not for me, especially tomato. The smokey base is also a no-go for me. There is quite a bit of bitterness from this, despite me being careful with the steep time. 3 minutes, 85 deg. C water, 550 mL water. There are also some savoury spices (bay leaf and black pepper, I think.) It reminds me a lot of tomato soup. I can’t say there are any redeeming factors here, expect maybe the unique and interesting aspect of it.

I don’t think I’ve ever tried a tomato-flavored tea, though I don’t think that would be a deal-breaker for me. I don’t tend to like tomato soup, but it’s usually the texture; if it’s more creamy/pasty (like tomato sauce) it tends to hit that “mushy foods” texture that sets off my gag reflex, but if it’s more watery/brothy then I’m okay, as the flavor of tomato isn’t a problem for me. So a watery tea that’s tomato flavored? I think I could handle it. Smoky flavors (lapsang souchong) are a migraine trigger for me though, so that could be problematic, depending on how smoky it is… huh. This actually makes me really curious! If the smoke were really subtle, I could imagine something like that making a nice ramen broth…

No reviews?? Interesting….

Picked this up during Black Friday simply because it was a tea I hadn’t tried before. I was also intrigued by the concept of a Bloody Mary in tea form (ok, it was the inclusion of tomato that got me). The dry leaf is amusing – have you ever seen dried cucumber in a tea before? It looks really weird (I actually had it in a different tea the other day, and initially thought it was something rotten until I checked the tea description).

Anyhow – this tea is actually a pleasant surprise. The aroma is very tomato-savoury, but not too strong. The flavour is more complex (tomato is apparent but the combo of other ingredients blends together very smoothly) and vaguely reminds me of the tomato soup tea DavidsTea recently put out – except that the salt level in here is appropriate for a beverage (the soup teas by DT were WAY too salty). I don’t know if there’s added salt, or if the tomatoes or cucumber were salted, but if so, there’s just enough for flavour enhancement.

Overall, this is a great savoury (mostly) herbal tea, especially if you like tomatoes. For me it’s more of a novelty tea; not one that I’ll crave or anything but will have on certain occasions when in the mood. I also think it could make a really interesting soup base!

Some time ago, 52Teas did a tomato tea that was just awesome. Did you have a chance to try that one?
