On The Second Day of Christmas, Southern Boy Teas Edition!

OK, it’s day 2.  And I’m happy that today’s iced tea from the SBT 12 Day of Christmas countdown is a tea that’s “new to me.”  Well, kind of new to me, anyway.  You’ll see what I mean in a second …

Taster’s Review:

Well, as I said, this tea is sort of new to me.  I have tried the Blueberry Cream Cheese Danish Black Tea blend that 52Teas as well as their more recent Blueberry Cream Cheese Danish Green Tea blend, I feel that I’m somewhat familiar with this tea, although the SBT iced tea version is still “new to me,” and one I definitely wanted to try, so I’m glad to find it in this collection of 12 iced teas of Christmas.

This is really yummy.  I cold-brewed the tea overnight, the way I typically do brew these extra-large tea bags from Southern Boy Teas.  The flavor is nicely balanced between black tea notes and blueberry flavors, with a hint of tangy cream cheese that is especially noticeable toward the tail and in the aftertaste.  Every once in a while, when I’m really focused on the sip, I can taste the buttery taste of a flaky pastry in there, but that flavor is a little less discernible than the blueberry, cream cheese and black tea flavors.

The aftertaste with this iced tea is noteworthy, because I find myself enjoying a delicate taste of sweet-tart blueberry and tangy cream cheese that continues to linger on my palate long after I’ve finished the glass of iced tea.  I don’t recall another iced tea that has had such an impressive aftertaste as this one.  That doesn’t mean that I haven’t experienced another tea with as strong a presence in the aftertaste, it just means that I can’t remember one.

This is quite a treat!
