From 52teas

This is our first NEW tea of our 12 Teas of Christmas box (we reblend 8 teas every year, and create 4 new blends – but this year we did things just a little different . . . more on that on Day 8 of the countdown!) and this new tea is something special! Every year, I like to include at least one minty tea in the Christmas box because mint and the holidays just seem to go together, right? Last year, we didn’t have a minty tea in the Christmas box, and it wasn’t until I started working on the teas of the week for December that I realized that I hadn’t crafted ANY minty teas for the holiday season so I needed to come up with something quick and that’s when I came up with the idea for the candy cane white tea which I loved, particularly because of the candy canes that I used in that blend, an organically crafted, all natural, vegan, gluten free and allergen free candy cane. I simply fell in love with these things so when the holidays approached this year, I ordered some and then came up with the blend for which I’d be using them!

Also, I was a little surprised that this year, none of the Genmaicha blends were outstanding vote catchers in our poll especially considering that last year, we had two stand out Genmaicha vote getters – and since I do have quite a few Genmaicha fans out there, that suggested to me that people needed a new, interesting Genmaicha blend!

And here it is!

I started with organic Genmaicha and added peppermint, vanilla beans, marshmallow root and of course some bits of the aforementioned candy canes. The result: a yummy marshmallow treat-y cuppa with crisp, cool notes of peppermint! It tastes like a holiday marshmallow treat! So good!

organic ingredients: green tea, toasted/popped rice, peppermint, candy canes (organic cane sugar, organic brown rice syrup, natural peppermint flavor, color added [organic fruit juice]), vanilla beans & natural flavors

Hmm it’s hard to describe what I think of this tea. I guess the main word I’d use to describe it is…unnecessary? 52teas does a delicious genmaicha, and the candy cane is really refreshing and nice. I’m just not convinced the two need to be paired. In some sips, they went together fine, but in others the roastiness and mint seemed sort of at odds. The only flavors I get are that bright, sweet mint and the toasted rice, but I’d prefer them separately.

Can’t go wrong with a genmaicha blend from 52Teas. Though, this isn’t my favorite. The nutty genmaicha flavor is at the forefront, with the creamy peppermint being more secondary. Still delicious, but not something I need to purchase again.

Adventaggedon Day 23: Tea 8/8

…and last but not least is the third candy cane tea from today! For a hot second I thought maybe there wouldn’t be a genmaicha blend in the countdown this year but I’m relieved to have been wrong!

I remember liking past iterations of this and I don’t know if it’s just that my palate has changed or if maybe the formulation itself was slightly tweaked but I think I liked this a lot this time around that what I was remembering. The creamy fluffy marshmallow note was just so spot on and it married completely beautifully with the lighter soft notes of candy cane. Of the three candy cane blends I had in my advents today, this one easily had the most components/flavours going on to try and convey but it all just felt really in sync and cohesive. Not a strong flavour (but not all teas need to be strong to be good) but one where everything on the checklist comes through clearly.

#tiffanys2021sipdown Tea #27

Finished this last night 1/24 I think….working all these different shift times at work and can’t remember what day it is anymore LOL!! Anyway, I’ve been on a genmaicha kick lately, this one was actually made before my last two sipdowns but was savoring this one a little longer. Cold brew pitcher of the entire packet, it was so refreshing with the candy cane mint along with the roasty green tea. I’m a fan :)

A tasty dessert blend for a weird night. I’ve taken on another job at a university and and so I’m working some odd hours. I wanted something low caffeine but also comforting and rich. I’m trying to get through more of my caffinated teas because I have a record number of teas right now and I need to cut down by ~50 or more. I’ve had to store tea in my room because both of my drawers and the cabinet are full. Oops!

This has a lot of mint, but it certainly conveys candy cane because there is a nice dose of vanilla in there. I can taste the sugar/marshmallow flavour as well. The genmaicha is toasty but vegetal, which in my opinion clashes with the peppermint a bit. Rice + peppermint? hmm not my favourite combo. It was a good cup and I look forward to drinking it again however I probably would not buy it again. I like some of the other genmaichas better.

Another from Annie— thanks so much for sharing! I better write a tasting note now, as I have less than a teaspoon left. I LOVE 52Teas’ marshmallow genmaicha blends, so always happy to see more variations. This one looked like mostly popped rice (and I didn’t see any peppermint candy in my serving). However, there is plenty of mint and marshmallow flavor. It’s a surprisingly delicious combination. The briskness of the mint with the creamy marshmallow is great. It seems like a dessert! This is a unique blend, yet straight forward. It is what it says it is!
Steep #1 // 1 1/2 teaspoons for a full mug // 28 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
Steep #2 // 27 minutes after boiling // 2-3 minute steep
2019 Sipdowns: 32 (52Teas’ Butter Pecan… tossed the last couple of teaspoons because this one is probably around 10 years old and the flavor is just WEIRD now. I don’t mind old teas but not OLD teas.)

52Teas

was that the original butter pecan? From Frank?

tea-sipper

yes,it was Frank’s blend.. it sadly didn’t age gracefully. the flavor was completely different from when I first tried it, when it was an old tea even back then. but the tea was way past the age of me expecting it to be delicious. I hate throwing tea away, but this one was just off.

52Teas

Yeah, that is one drawback to flavored teas especially – is that the flavors won’t hold up for years – so it is not my recommendation to hoard these teas (trust me, I do understand the tendency to hoard teas!) – enjoy them while they’re still fresh and you’ll get the most enjoyment from them. :)

tea-sipper

Yeah, hopefully that was one of my oldest teas!

This tea is my laundry companion. It is creamy and minty and very festive with some nice roasty rice notes. Not a lot of marshmallow which is a little disappointing but still a nice tea to play around with while it lasts.

Sipdown! (4 | 14)

This one was mighty tasty! But I don’t feel too bad sipping it down, since I have other candy cane teas in my cupboard. Plus I’m planning to order some of the plain marshmallow treat genmaicha once the vanilla marshmallow black tea is in stock!

I’ll have to remember this combination for the holiday season though, I would love to try a real candy cane marshmallow treat! I’m thinking dipped in white chocolate and sprinkled with crushed candy canes… ❤

Flavors: Butter, Candy, Creamy, Marshmallow, Peppermint, Smooth, Sweet, Toasted Rice

That sounds like an awesome idea for a marshmallow treat.

It’s sort of like a peppermint bark marshmallow treat mash-up. ;)

Review for the 2021 12 teas of Christmas reblend. Also oversteeped this tea, but it fared a bit better and was pretty tasty still! Minty and creamy and a bit toasty.
