Tea of the Week for February 14, 2022!

Wow, look at me, releasing a tea a MONTH before a holiday rather than after the holiday it was intended for. Look at me – being all proactive and stuff. Not my usual, to be sure.

This is a variation of what Frank blended back whenever he blended his “Mike-the-Nerd’s Irish Cream Black Tea”. A blend of black teas (including Chinese, Assam & Vietnamese teas) combined with cream & whiskey essence (don’t worry, it’s alcohol-free!), vanilla bean, cacao nibs & cacao shells. I kinda wish that I had some kind of green-ish leaf and/or petal that I could add to this for a bit of Irish flair – but alas, I don’t have something that would not affect the overall flavor of the cup & I didn’t want to disrupt the flavor of the tea because WOW! This is tasty!

I would add some sort of Irish-related words right now but even though I have Irish ancestry, I don’t really have anything clever Irish-related words unless “Kiss me, I’m Irish counts”. Instead, I’m just gonna say that this tea is delicious. It’s also vegan, gluten-free, allergen-friendly, alcohol-free & all natural – you’re not gonna wanna miss out on this blend!

I don’t know what Irish cream is supposed to taste like, but this turned out to be a delicious chocolate teas. I really like how 52teas balances chocolate teas. It’s almost as satisfying as a hot chocolate with a pleasant black base and a very authentic chocolate. The second time I had this wasn’t quite as amazing as the first, but still quite pleasant sweetened with milk. This one also resteeps super well.

(52teas (Anne) 2022: 276)

Definitely got an irish cream vibe from this tea, which has me very pleased, although the base was a bit rougher than my preference would be (I don’t think I oversteeped, but not sure). I did pick up the cacao nibs in the tea, which I’m not a huge fan of (prefer cacao shell, which is also present), but it wasn’t overwhelming. This comes in as my second-favourite irish cream tea, second to a tea I got in an Amoda sub box eons ago and somewhat recently finished off. Can’t recall the name offhand, but just thinking of it makes me salivate a bit. This tea could possibly get there with different brewing parameters, so I’m excited to play around.

I will be sad when this one is gone. 1 Serving left and i will likely horde it for a bit haha. Cacao + vanilla + black tea…really nice.

February 2022 Tea Reblend

I’m still getting the feel for this chocolate-y Irish Cream flavoured black tea, but it seems fitting to make a cup of this on St. Patrick’s Day! The black tea blend is complex – also, vanilla is life right now (and makes this tea count towards “floral” month).

No partying or festivities today though, beyond drinking this tea. Tomorrow is my nephew’s 2nd birthday (the one who also loves tea and who gave me plague during Christmas break), so I best save my energy for that!
