It’s been a lot of fun – these mystery samples, even though I’ve already tried all but one of them previously. It’s a bit like visiting an old friend.
And when I think about it, I don’t know that I could have had enjoyed this experience with any other company. Having tried so many offerings from 52Teas and having not yet found one that disappointed me, I knew that I would enjoy this package of 12 mystery teas.
So, thank you, 52Teas for being what you are! A great company dedicated to creating the most interesting tea blends possible. I wouldn’t want it any other way!
On the 10th Day of Christmas, 52Teas gave to me…
Leaf Type: Black
Where to Buy: 52Teas
This was a suggestion from one of our customers, and I spent an hour digging through my email folders and searching our facebook page, but I couldn’t find the original suggestion anywhere, so I couldn’t put his or her name on the blend.
Anyway, when I first got the suggestion, I realized I was going to have to MAKE some Zabaglione to try, because not only had I not tried it before, but I had never HEARD of it before. Well after trying it (for those of you who never have, I would say it is something like a custardy (flavor, not texture) whipped cream with a hint of wine. After trying it, I was not at all sure that we would be able to make a tea that hinted of the complexity of Zabaglione, but after some trial and error, we now have… [Strawberry Zabaglione]
Well, today, I’m going to try to keep this short and sweet, mostly because I have an appointment this morning and time is ticking away!
I have previously reviewed this tea, and you can read that review here. This is another favorite from 52Teas. The flavor is amazing! The strawberry tastes authentic – just like a fresh, juicy strawberry! The creamy “zabaglione” tastes very custard-like (which is what I understand a zabaglione is supposed to taste like).
The black tea base is strong and supports these flavors well. Together, it is a delicious treat! Drink it in the morning to enjoy dessert at the breakfast table! Drink it in the afternoon for a delightful pick-me-up. A splash of milk will bring out the creamy tones of the custard!
Yum! I’m glad this tea was a part of this package because it definitely is one of the shining stars from 52Teas accomplishments this past year!
