Well, this is the eighth and final tea for me to try from the Southern Boy Teas series, and I am kind of wishing I had made this one earlier, and maybe saved one of the others for last. I’m not saying that I dislike this tea – I am actually really enjoying it – but, it’s not my favorite.
However, I will say … this delivers exactly what it promises! This tastes like black tea and bubblegum. If someone were to liquify pink bubblegum and mixed it with black tea – the result would probably taste very much like what I’m drinking now.
The black tea is smooth and has a brisk, satisfying taste. Any bitterness or harshness that this tea might have had has been softened by the sweetness of the bubblegum flavor. The bubblegum flavor is very authentic tasting – this tastes like the pink bubblegum that we all know and that the child within loves, even if we don’t want to admit it! I taste creaminess to this, which enhances the overall “bubblegum” experience.
It is really very refreshing and tasty. It isn’t my favorite of these Southern Boy Teas, but, it is certainly good and I am enjoying it enough that I’d order it again!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
