When 52Teas announced the new Southern Boy Teas for this summer, you know I was all over it! I love cold-brewing tea, and as much as I prefer loose leaf tea when it comes to a hot cuppa, when it comes to cold-brewing some iced tea, I want the convenience of a bagged tea. And I loved the Southern Boy Teas from last summer … so I couldn’t wait to try the new flavors for this summer.
This Mango Peach Flavored Black Iced Tea from 52Teas is the first of this summer’s Southern Boy Teas that I’ve tried. And while I can’t say that it’s my favorite “SBT” that I’ve had … I’m enjoying it. It’s cold refreshment, and on these hot summer days that’s certainly a welcome thing.
The black tea is a brisk, strong backdrop for the flavors of the peach and the mango. The fruit flavors are sweet and juicy tasting, I guess I’m just wishing that the flavors were more distinct. I taste notes of mango and I taste notes of peach … but, they aren’t really clear and focused flavors. I want to be able to take a sip and say “oh yes, that’s mango!” or “oh yes, that’s peach!” … but instead, it’s more like “that’s a fruity taste.”
I’m still really enjoying it … I’m just wishing for MORE peach and MORE mango. But, I do like that the black tea flavor is good and strong. It’s a smooth, rich flavored tea – not like those icky grocery-store teabags (you know the ones I’m talking about, right? They come in a yellow, white and red box.) I like that there’s plenty of room in these tea bags for the tea to expand. And I like that I don’t have to clean up the loose leaf tea when I cold-brew this!
Overall, this one is good. Not great … but it’s really good, and one I’d drink 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!
