Tea and Cards TTB

Backlog and sipdown.

Needed a tea that had no caffeine and this is one that I found in my stash. Legit all my tea is probs so old I really should toss it all… I’m determined to get through them all though! My boyfriend works in an African themed resort and he’s super into African everything when it comes to Food and Beverage. I told him about this tea and he automatically goes “Rooibos?” and I go “NOPE Honeybush” and he got v excited. Something new, something different, still drinks somewhat similarly to a rooibos though.

Not again! I opened this package, and instantly was overwhelmed by the smell of alcohol. This is my second Honeybush from 52teas, and my second one that smells like straight alcohol. To make sure I wasn’t crazy, I made my boyfriend smell it and he wrinkled his nose and pretended to gag. “Why would you buy alcohol tea?” So I’m obviously not crazy.

Steeped up, this taste taste as strong of alcohol as my last 52tea, but even with a ton of sweetener all I get is sugar water and liquor, no chocolate, no peanuts, nothing appealing. I’ll try the rest of my teas from my order but I might end up crossing 52teas off my list.

Are they using peanut butter extract or something?

That sounds awful. I’ve heard so many mixed reviews on 52teas that I’m just not sure I want to try them.

I got that alcohol taste and smell in pretty much all the teas I have tried from them. So I just don’t buy them, i can’t tolerate that at all. Having said that, they seem to be very popular here.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but It is my understanding that most flavourings contain alcohol (like vanilla extract does) and there’s a process to let that evaporate once it has been mixed with the tea. I think in 52teas blends, it might be the problem. Most likely, in a couple of weeks from now, it won’t be as bad.

I had the same problem with Coconut Cream Pie Honeybush, and Frank replied saying:
“ou might try airing your tea out a little bit. Pour it out onto a baking sheet or something and spread it out. Give it 15-20 minutes, stirring it around a couple of times during the process. You shouldn’t have to do this, but alcohol is used in our flavors as a carrying agent. As it evaporates, it carries the flavoring through the tea. It SHOULD have all evaporated as we were blending it, but occasionally, for some reason, we might end up with some of the tea that the alcohol didn’t properly evaporate from. I’m afraid I’m running into this a little more frequently now that I’m doing larger batches of tea. I’m going to have to redouble my efforts to make sure everything is blended extra well.”

I let it air out that way all day and then all day again the next day, and it helped a little bit but not much. If I wanted to drink alcohol, I’ve got a bottle of coconut carribean rum that I bought from the Cayman Islands, that at least is cold, has another taste besides alcohol, and will give me a buzz.

I really wanted to like it too, before these past two experiences, I’ve had two genmaichas from them, and an oolong and all 3 had flavors, none of which were alcohol. But I even smelled the Almond Bliss iced tea I got, and it two smells like alcohol.

I’ve had good luck just letting the pouches hang around a few months.

I don’t know if I just got a bad batch or what, but this tasted like honeybush with a chemical or alcoholic aftertaste. It didn’t taste like peanuts, or chocolate at all. I did not enjoy it. I’m very disappointed, since there are some reviews that make it sound really good.

Backlog:

The aroma of the dry leaf was a little off to me and had a chemical-y smell. Fortunately this didn’t translate in the flavor. I didn’t taste chemicals, I tasted chocolate, caramel, peanuts and the natural nutty notes of the honeybush played to the peanut flavor very nicely.

Really tasty. I don’t know that this is a Peanut Cluster liquefied, but it tastes good.

As a big fan of sweets in general, and chocolate peanut butter fan even more so, I’m in love with this tea! The taste takes a few sips to build but once it does it’s a wonderful time. I’m trying this for the first time the day after Easter so the memories of premium chocolate are close, drinking this tea is so close to having a piece of sponge candy right out of my Easter basket! Yet the flavor is not overbearing, the chocolate is balanced nicely with the peanut and neither drown out the honeybush.
