From 52teas

I created this tea for one of our 52Teas Ambassadors who wanted a lime sugar cookie oolong. So I pulled out all the stops for this special customer! I used a very special TieGuanYin from Verdant Tea and blended it with dried lime segments and lime leaves to give it a delightful lime note. The cookie notes are buttery and sweet which tone down some of the tarty notes of the lime without obscuring the bright lime flavor. Then I added some beautiful lime green edible glitter (don’t worry, it’s vegan!) There isn’t a lot of glitter to this, just enough to add a little bit of shimmer to the dry leaf.

The natural creamy notes of the Oolong meld beautifully with the flavors of lime and buttery cookie. The first infusion of the leaves has a softer buttery taste and mouthfeel while the second infusion has a stronger lime note – both infusions are really delicious so I highly recommend resteeping these leaves!

This tea truly is sublime!

ingredients: oolong tea, organic lime leaves, dried lime segments, vegan edible glitter and organic natural flavors.

As fate would have it, this is the other tea I drank this afternoon, when randomly pulling out teas from a bag I need to drink down sooner rather than later. A good choice for a comparison against DT’s Lemon Pound Cake, as it turns out!

The base definitely wins here (for me), because it’s a greener oolong and the “oolong-ness” comes out nicely, whereas the tea base is less prominent in DT’s (it’s also a more oxidized oolong). So depending on what one is looking for, that may or may not be a good thing. For the citrus flavouring, yes, this one is limier, but they’re fairly similar. Both creamy and delicious. DT’s probably wins there, but only because creamy lemon is slightly tastier than creamy lime, and the flavouring is stronger, perhaps because the base is also lighter.

Anyways, comparing apples to oranges here, really, but the 52teas version is definitely of higher quality, but flavouring-wise, they’re both quite good. I greatly enjoyed both cups today, while tiny baby fussed, and fussed, and fussed some more. Sigh.

ETA: Forgot to look for the glitter. Next time.
