Day 9: Caramel Cheesecake Black Tea. . . .The 52Teas Countdown to Christmas!

On the 9th Day of Christmas 52 Teas gave to me… Caramel Cheesecake Black Tea! This lovely black tea blend smells exactly the way it sounds, like creamy cheesecake drizzled in caramel sauce. If I hadn’t read the name before smelling the leaf, I definitely would have been able to pick out the flavors just on smell alone. I love any tea that has cheesecake essence in it, as cheesecake is actually one of my favorite desserts. I used to live right across the street from a Cheesecake Factory restaurant…I’m sure you can imagine, that was pretty dang dangerous!

I may no longer live near a good place to get a slice of cheesecake, but if and when a craving strikes, this tea would surely suffice! It’s creamy and has an almost “fluffy” flavor that’s light and sweet. It also has a slight tang and underlying flavor of cheesecake that definitely comes through on the aftertaste. It’s interesting because when I first saw the name of this tea I kind of wished that there was another component like maybe “caramel apple cheesecake” or something a little more, but after trying this I really believe it is perfect just as it is and I think that something else would definitely have overpowered the awesome flavor combo of caramel and cheesecake. It’s so realistic and yummy, I definitely recommend trying it if you have the chance!

Strawberry Cheesecake from Allegheny Coffee & Tea . . . .A Sweet Treat

While wandering around Pittsburgh’s Strip District the drizzly day after Christmas, my in-laws and I noticed a tea and coffee shop, Allegheny Coffee & Tea Exchange.

“Oh no,” whispered my husband, jokingly.

“Too late,” whispered my father-in-law, a little less jokingly.

“We have to go in there,” I said.

“Coffee,” my mother-in-law drooled.

“We’re going to keep walking down the street,” my husband’s brother said. “We’re going to keep walking down the street,” my husband’s brother said.

My mother-in-law and I rushed into the store, which had big barrels of coffee and lovely sniffers of tea. We split into our separate caffeinated zones. Me to the tea, her to the coffee. My husband gamely followed me and played with the infusers while I sniffed everything.

I got out of there in under $20. The employees were friendly, tolerant of my enthusiasm, and very polite.

I first got around to trying this particular tea, Strawberry Cheesecake, while I was at a cabin with a few friends.

One was pregnant, and couldn’t have much caffeine, but she sipped some of this. “That hits my ‘I miss coffee’ spot,” she said happily. “That’s actually really good.”

This tea is a very rich berry cream flavor. I don’t think I’d call it “cheesecake,” though. I’d go with “cream,” or perhaps “yogurt.” But not the full cheesecake. That said, I have no idea how one would go about making anything taste like cheesecake. It seems like an impossible task. But this flavor does hint at dairy, which I find impressive. It’s sweet and girly.

If you want to scratch a caffeine itch or a dessert itch, give this one a whirl.

Thanks, spontaneous Pittsburgh find!

#FanaticFriday: Peach Cheesecake Honeybush from 52Teas

I’m a huge fan of 52Teas. Always have been. So I thought I would take over SororiTea Sisters today and chat about a few new offerings from 52Teas!

Today I was just craving a dessert tea and I have to say this one hit the spot perfectly for me!

52Teas creates an amazing line of dessert teas that satisfy any sweet tooth. With the leaves starting to fall and almost at the end of September, I was craving a tea that had a fall touch and a dessert feel.

Peach Cheesecake Honeybush has a lovely gathering of fall like spices with a honeybush background. The tea itself has even a fall look with the lovely large chunks of peach and pops of lighter yellows on a bed of brown honeyhbush. Doesn’t get more fall than that!

Brewed with fresh boiled water and allowed to steep for 5 minutes, this tea had a lovely spiced peach aroma that made my mouth water. I couldn’t wait for the tea to finish steeping.

Once I was all set and the tea cooled for a moment , I took my first sip. Pops of vibrant fresh peaches spiced to perfection with cinnamon and a hint of ginger with a lush silky creamy finish.

This blend is sweet with just the right amount of spice to give the tea the much needed contrast. I’m crazy about this tea right now and have almost tanked out my taster size that I received in my monthly subscription box. This is one I’m going to have to think about getting a larger size.

Peach Cheesecake Honeybush is one of those perfect teas that has that subtle fall feel with those pops of vibrancy that give you all the tea feels!

Here’s the scoop!

When I was determining the tea menu for this month, I knew I wanted to do one last peach tea as the summer wanes. I also wanted to do a cream cheese type of tea because it’s been a little while since our last cream cheese offering. So I decided to bring these two flavors together to create a Peach Cheesecake Honeybush!

I started with organic honeybush – I thought that the natural nutty-like flavors of the honeybush would make a nice base for the flavors of peach and cheesecake. Then I added freeze-dried peach chunks and cinnamon and natural flavors to create a sublime, dessert-y treat. This blend is all organic, gluten-free, allergen-free and naturally caffeine-free – not to mention delicious!

Taster size is approximately 15g.

organic ingredients: honeybush, freeze-dried peaches, cinnamon, ginger root, calendula petals and natural flavors.
