Tea of the Week for July 13, 2020!
Our Third Subscriber Creation for July!

This blend idea came from one of my long-time subscribers who was also a subscriber back when Frank was still at the helm. This subscriber told me that their favorite blend was the Raspberry Cream Cheese Danish Honeybush but that they thought that it would have been even better if it were a Lemon Cream Cheese Danish flavor rather than a Raspberry. So they asked me to attempt it & so I did!

Wow – this one is good! The lemon is bright & vibrant. The cream cheese notes are tangy yet smooth. The honeybush adds a hint of nutty flavor which adds some depth to the Danish pastry flavor. It comes together very nicely on the palate – just enough sweetness, tart & tangy to keep those taste buds jumping for joy!

This delicious dessert-y tisane is all organic, VEGAN, gluten free, allergen free & caffeine free. It’s also YUMMY!

Taster pouch is approximately 15g

organic ingredients: honeybush, lemon grass, lemon myrtle, lemon peel, lemons & natural flavors

I really have loved the many different ideas that came to me via this subscriber creation event – so much so that I’ll no doubt be doing this again sometime in the future. I love seeing the ideas that our subscribers come up with for tea blends.

This blend steeps into a really delightful cuppa. The lemon is so bright – it reminds me a lot of lemon curd. Tart – but not puckery. It has a sweetness to it that keeps it from being too tart.

to brew: use 4g of leaf to 12 ounces of very hot water (195°F) & steep for at least 8 minutes. This one won’t get bitter if you steep it longer – so go ahead & do it if you have a mind & the patience to do so. You’ll be rewarded with an even more flavorful cuppa.

strain & allow to cool for at least 5 minutes. enjoy!

Sweetener isn’t needed to enjoy a pleasant lemon-y flavor. I do find that the cream cheese notes pop more when I add a little bit of sugar (a little less than 1/2 a teaspoon) to the cup.

Samurai TTB #28

The name of this tea sounded absolutely delicious and I was excited that it was honeybush instead of rooibos. However, the flavor didn’t quite live up to expectations. I got a very pleasant, natural lemon taste, but no cream cheese or pastry that I could discern. Still an enjoyable cup of tea, but not as special as I hoped.

Had this earlier in the day during a meeting, and to be totally honest I kept getting distracted in my meeting because the tea was sooo good! As soon as I opened the sample packed I knew it would be, because the aroma was so richly lemon curd, pastry, and cream cheese! The cream cheese was sort of shocking; to be honest I think the “cream cheese” part of 52Tea’s assorted “cream cheese danish” teas is typically the weakest part of the blend – and that’s not on them specifically, it’s just that that sort of sweet and creamy cheese with a “tangy” quality is soooo bloody challenging to capture in general. You see it all the time too with cheesecake blends that don’t taste like cheesecake, and its consistent across multiple vendors…

This was probably the best “cream cheese” I’ve experienced in a tea to date.

The lemon was excellent; fresh and sweet but with the acidity/high notes of a lemon curd type of pasty filling and it only made the cream cheese better. Honeybush as a base is brilliant; it lends the needed sweetness and nutty/graham style notes that work for pastry inspired dished. Everything just clicked, and I loved it.

This is quite the endorsement. I remember really getting the cream cheese element in another 52 Teas blend and for the life of me, I can’t remember which one now

July 2020 Blend

This did not last long enough.

52Teas does delicious “Danish” flavoured teas, as well as lovely lemon flavours. Combined, the flavouring is sublime (best of both worlds)! The cream cheese is pretty vivid here too and it’s just wonderful. Yeah… this is hands down one of my favourite flavoured honeybush teas; it hits all of my sweet spots.

Flavors: Cheesecake, Cream, Lemon, Lemongrass, Pastries
