Caramel Pecan Cheesecake Oolong/Mate Blend from 52Teas

Tea Information: Leaf Type:  Oolong Tea & Yerba Mate Blend Where to Buy:  52Teas Tea Description: Sometimes necessity really is the mother of invention. We didn’t quite have enough of either roasted mate or Fujian oolong left to make a full batch of a new blend, so I decided maybe we should blend them together, and the toasty Fujian oolong is a great compliment to the roasted mate! Even better, we paired it with organic caramel, cheesecake and pecan flavors with real pecans. This is a yummy treat you’re not going to want to miss out on. Learn more about this tea Read More
