Gingerbread Coffeecake

Leaf Type:  Green

Tea Description:

Our cakey- and gingerbread-flavors were getting mixed reviews in our black tea blends, so I decided to give it a try with a lighter base, and oh man, did that do the trick!

Here’s a light, refreshing Young Hyson green tea base blended with cinnamon, ginger and organic flavors like gingerbread, cake batter, butter and brown sugar.

Taster’s Review:

I’ve been looking forward to trying this Gingerbread Coffeecake Flavored Green Tea from 52Teas!  I absolutely loved their Gingerbread Chai that they made for their Christmas blend a few years ago, and I was certain I’d enjoy this too.

And … this might even be BETTER than the Gingerbread Chai – and that’s saying something because I love chai!  Of course, it could just be the fact that it’s been quite a while since I’ve had some Gingerbread Chai so I’m basing this all on memory … although I must say that was a very memorable chai!  At the very least, I must also say that this Gingerbread Coffeecake is a very memorable flavored green tea!

The light Young Hyson green tea base is a perfect match for the buttery, cake-y, zesty ginger-y tastes of the flavors in this tea.  I thought that the green tea would be overpowered by the flavors … but it isn’t. I taste the light, crisp flavor of the Young Hyson … with hints of grassy flavor that – oddly enough – really seem to complement the flavoring.

The gingerbread flavoring is perfection.  This tastes like my favorite ginger cookies that have been liquefied and mixed with green tea.  The flavors are nicely balanced.  There is a peppery ZING from the ginger … not too much, but enough to let you know that there is ginger in this tea!  I taste the buttery, cake-y tastes and the brown sugar.  It is sweet and decadent and delicious.  Truly a delight to drink!

I wanted to take a moment to mention that 52Teas/Zoomdweebies wants to reopen it’s tea bar in Wichita, Kansas, and is holding a “crowd-funding campaign” through Indiegogo.  Please consider contributing to this fundraising event to help a small businessman.  Every little bit helps … and it would be great to get Zoomdweebies BACK on the map, don’t you think?

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!
