A Sorority of Sisters Who Love Tea

On the 10th Day of Christmas … from 52Teas

December23

Wow… just 3 more sample packages left.  I am going to miss this!

It’s been a lot of fun – these mystery samples, even though I’ve already tried all but one of them previously.  It’s a bit like visiting an old friend.

And when I think about it, I don’t know that I could have had enjoyed this experience with any other company.  Having tried so many offerings from 52Teas and having not yet found one that disappointed me, I knew that I would enjoy this package of 12 mystery teas.

So, thank you, 52Teas for being what you are!  A great company dedicated to creating the most interesting tea blends possible.  I wouldn’t want it any other way!

On the 10th Day of Christmas, 52Teas gave to me…

STRAWBERRY ZABAGLIONE

Tea Information:

Leaf Type:  Black

Where to Buy:  52Teas

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… [Strawberry Zabaglione]

Taster’s Review:

Well, today, I’m going to try to keep this short and sweet, mostly because I have an appointment this morning and time is ticking away!

I have previously reviewed this tea, and you can read that review here.   This is another favorite from 52Teas.  The flavor is amazing!  The strawberry tastes authentic – just like a fresh, juicy strawberry!  The creamy “zabaglione” tastes very custard-like (which is what I understand a zabaglione is supposed to taste like).

The black tea base is strong and supports these flavors well. Together, it is a delicious treat!  Drink it in the morning to enjoy dessert at the breakfast table!  Drink it in the afternoon for a delightful pick-me-up.  A splash of milk will bring out the creamy tones of the custard!

Yum!  I’m glad this tea was a part of this package because it definitely is one of the shining stars from 52Teas accomplishments this past year!

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!
