Product Description:

This was a suggestion from one of our customers, and I spent an hour digging through my email folders and searching our facebook page, but I couldn’t find the original suggestion anywhere, so I couldn’t put his or her name on the blend.

Anyway, when I first got the suggestion, I realized I was going to have to MAKE some Zabaglione to try, because not only had I not tried it before, but I had never HEARD of it before. Well after trying it (for those of you who never have, I would say it is something like a custardy (flavor, not texture) whipped cream with a hint of wine. After trying it, I was not at all sure that we would be able to make a tea that hinted of the complexity of Zabaglione, but after some trial and error, we now have…

Tasters Review:

I’ve now had two separate tries with this tea and here is what I have found…

For my first attempt…

I found this to be very VERY nice!  It’s very creamy and a lovely Strawberry taste without being tart or fake tasting!  There is a a bit of fruit, a bit of wine, and lots of cream! Ahhhhhh!

My second go-around was just as pleasing!  Yes, the strawberry is still there and is juicy and plump in flavor but this time around I picked up more on the wine-likeness and it was a beautiful thing!  And the cream was perfect and more towards the end of the sip!  Truly unique!

All good things must come to an end – and so has this tea in my stash.  I’m officially putting this one on my re-order list because it’s a goodie!!!

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
