Taster’s Review:

Yum!  At the start of this countdown, I was hoping that one of the teas featured would be this new iced tea flavor.  The original Strawberry Zabaglione black tea from 52Teas is one of the very best that I’ve tried from 52Teas, so, just like with the Coconut Cream Pie Iced Tea, I had high hopes!

And this is good … although I don’t know if I can say that I like it as well as I liked the aforementioned coconut cream pie iced tea.  I think that the original 52Teas version of this tea was better.  Then again, it’s been a while since I’ve had that tea so I’m basing that opinion solely on my memory.  It was a very memorable tea, though!

This does have a nice strawberry taste that is particularly noteworthy in the aftertaste.  In the aftertaste, there is a flavor that is very much like the taste I’d experience after I’ve eaten a fresh, ripe strawberry.  And this tea does have a nice creamy, custard-like flavor, although I think that this is where this iced tea pales in comparison to the original, because it had a very decadent, sweet, custard-y flavor that was so delightful.  And while this tea does have a certain creaminess to it, it isn’t quite as memorable as the original version.

That said, this is still quite tasty.  The black tea is brisk and invigorating.  The strawberry flavor tastes delicious and true to the fruit.  The custard-like notes are creamy and sweet.  And it’s a very refreshing iced tea … one that I wouldn’t mind having chilling in my refrigerator on a regular basis.

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!
