OK, this is seriously yummy. Yes, it might even taste better than it sounds. And, yes, just the name alone is enough to make my sweet tooth swoon. Caramel? Pumpkin? Cheesecake? Um… yes please!
The black tea base is full-flavored and smooth. Very smooth. I am experiencing absolutely no bitterness here, and very little (if any) astringency. The only time I really notice astringency with this blend is if I actually stop, focus on the sip, and try to find it.
And while it is a good, hearty black tea, it is not overly aggressive. The flavors here are wonderfully expressed. I taste the pumpkin and a hint of spices. I taste the tangy flavor of cream cheese, and there is a luscious creamy texture and taste to go along with it. The caramel is sweet. And there is even a hint of buttery pastry to this that is not so noticeable when the tea is piping hot, but, after it’s cooled for a few minutes, the crust seems to come out a little more.
This is really yummy – makes me wish I were a better baker so that I could actually make a caramel pumpkin cheesecake for Thanksgiving dessert.
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!
