Tea of the Week for May 13, 2019!

Up to this point, most of our cola flavored teas have had a black tea base, so I wanted to do something with a green tea base … & I didn’t want to do just plain cola. I wanted to go a little unusual … which is kind of the usual route for us here at 52Teas, so would it be said, then, that our usual is the unusual? So it’s unusual when we do something other tea companies would consider usual?

OK, I’m way overthinking this.

I started with a base of Yun Wu & Chun Mee (both organic) & added some cola essence. Then I added some limes (as well as some lime leaves & lemongrass) & some freeze-dried cherries. The idea was not to go overly lime or cherry, but to have them strong enough so that they’re there so that with each sip, you can taste the cola, the lime & the cherry – as well as the green tea.

This is REALLY good – and it is perfect for summertime (in other words, it tastes FANTASTIC cold-brewed & served over ice!) And – as usual: it’s organic, VEGAN, gluten-free & allergen-free!

organic ingredients: green teas, lemon grass, lime leaves, dried lime wedges, freeze-dried cherries & natural flavors

52Teas did a great job blending this one. All three title ingredients have a tendency to take over a brew, but this one is well-balanced. Sweet dark cherry is a perfect partner for the slight spice of the cola flavor, and a zing of lime helps sell this as a green tea. It probably helps that I love cherry cola in real life, so of course I’m drawn to it in tea form as well. Like the ginger cola black tea, this blend smells amazing when dry or brewed and always helps pick up my mood.

I’ve been at work most of the day getting the subscriptions ready to ship (shipping out on Tuesday since tomorrow is a holiday) & I decided I needed a little break. And of course, what break is really a break without some tea? Since this is the tea I just finished processing, I decided to go ahead and brew some of it – mostly because it smells so amazing that I was craving it by the time I finished packaging it all up.

Dry – it smells amazing (as I’ve already mentioned). It smells like sweet cola with fruit. Brewed, the smell is still there – but it is a bit softer than the dry leaf.

The flavor of the cola is a bit different with a green tea base than with the black tea base. The natural fruity tones and sometimes malty tones of the black teas seem to match up really well with the cola notes. The green tea is a bit less fruity and a bit more grassy/vegetal, but that’s not to say it tastes ‘bad’ or even “less than” in comparison to the black tea . . . just different. It’s less of a ‘sticky sweet’ cola and more of a light cola, like maybe one you made with club soda and perhaps half a shot of cola syrup. Less sticky sweet, but still sweet and cola-like in flavor – which makes it an ideal choice for hot summer weather (which we haven’t actually gotten much of up here in the Pacific Northwest, I’m happy to say).

The cherry and lime are also a bit more delicate than what you might encounter in a sticky sweet cola – but those flavors are definitely there and I find them to be more noticeable if I add just a teensy bit of sugar (about a half teaspoon?)

I really like this – I did hot brew it this time, but I really prefer it cold-brewed. Perhaps I will brew some overnight tonight to enjoy tomorrow.

I am really looking forward to this one! Your cola teas are wonderful and I absolutely adore your Ginger Cola. Can’t wait for this!

You had me, right up until realizing this is a green tea base… XD
