Pancake Breakfast

Pancake Breakfast from 52Teas . . . .

Oh my god, you can taste the dough, and the maple sweetness, and like maybe a little hint of spice. It’s an all-encompassing deep sweetness, not saccharine or cloying. Your teeth don’t hurt. The taste has gravitas.

This tea is really well-named. It tastes precisely like sinking your teeth into a delicious breakfast at a diner.

Imagine the scene: it’s 10 a.m. on the weekend. Maybe you’re a little tired from whatever you did yesterday, even if it was just Netflix bingeing. You and your friends/family have been waiting in line at the mom and pop diner downtown, and you finally get in, and you see waffles are on special. OBVIOUSLY you are going in on that. The food is wicked fast coming out. You are gobbling that stuff down like it’s air. The waitress is calling you “hon” and asking if you want more coffee. You are in HEAVEN. You are a member of the Clean Plate Club.

If this sounds like a blast, good news! This is part of 52Teas’ permanent collection! Most of 52Teas’ offerings are “GOOD GOD GRAB IT NOW BEFORE IT IS GONE”, but this one is here to stay. Wake up and hop over!

Taster’s Review:

Well hello there! It’s been a long time, no see! It has been a hot minute since this Dodo has written anything in the world wide tea web about tea. Just to catch anyone up, I have started a new job, and it is that job that has made this little bird a bit apprehensive about writing any reviews. You see, I now work with the tea company, Tealet. The curtain has fallen, and the inside of the tea world looks quite different than it did on the outside. Taking everything I learn with a grain of salt, I think I can safely begin reviewing teas at perhaps an even more subjective perspective than before. (Cracks neck) Now I am ready to get back to work!

On to the tea! This is the first tea that I cracked out of the re-blend sampler pack I receive as my kickstarter rewards. This was the one I was most excited about. Upon opening the package, I get a strong whiff of the flavors. Maple at the forefront, light and fluffy buttered pancake at the bottom. At first whiff it smelled like the black tea base was cowering in the wake of the flavoring.

Steeping the tea, the black base does get to shine through a bit more. It’s a robust cuppa, very suitable for a breakfast setting. A dash of cream, no sugar, and you get more dessert flavors from the maple and the black tea. The flavoring themselves are quite strong, maybe a little too strong for me. Even so, they pin down hot, fluffy pancakes, buttered and drowned in syrup so well I almost don’t care.

This tea is quite good. I finished my sampler bag in three days! I would highly recommend it to anyone who needs a quirky twist on your plain, old, worn out English Breakfast. Two for you, 52Teas, you go 52Teas!

I’m tempted to start this post with, “You’re not going to believe what we did this week!” But we’ve created enough unique, one-of-a-kind blends, that I imagine our unique-ness is getting rather ho-hum.

But seriously? Who else would bring you a PANCAKE BREAKFAST tea? With the essence of hot, buttery, maple-syruped pancakes infused through our premium black teas (a bit heavier on the breakfast teas this week). Who else, really?

Taster’s Review:

Well, it’s Sunday, and Sunday means pancakes!  Well, it used to mean pancakes.  I fear I have slacked off when it comes to fixing the big Sunday morning breakfast.  But, as I sip this tea, I am not missing that stack of fluffy pancakes in the least.

The first flavor I notice is the maple.  Sweet, rich maple.  About mid-sip, a creamy, buttery taste comes through, while a bake-y, cake-y undertone continues to develop.  The sip finishes with a satisfying sweetness.  This tea has all the elements of a stack of golden brown pancakes topped with melted butter and real maple syrup except for the carbs and calories!

The black tea base is the 52Teas standard base of Nilgiri and Assam teas, and it seems to compliment the sweet pancake-ish, buttery, maple-y flavors perfectly.  The flavor of the tea is strong and comes through well but without becoming too aggressive.  There is some astringency to this cup but no bitterness.

This is a tea I prefer hot.  I also prefer to eat my pancakes while they are hot.  Some sweetener is nice here, as I find it brings out some of the more delicate flavors.  I chose to sweeten this with turbinado sugar today as I like the way the molasses-y notes meld with the overall cup; however, if you really want to amplify the maple notes, try a drizzle of real maple syrup in this.  YUM!  I haven’t tried adding milk to this but I suspect it would take this addition well.

Definitely one of my favorites from 52Teas (I say that a lot, don’t I?), and apparently, I’m not the only one who enjoys this one, as it sold out in record time after the first blending, and it has been re-blended several times since, and each re-blended batch has sold out.  I recommend joining the 52Teas mailing list (if you haven’t already) and watch for the next re-blending announcement so you can get some of this for yourself!  You won’t be disappointed!
