drank Summertime by 52teas
213 tasting notes

This is an all-new VIT that I crafted for (interestingly enough) summertime.

I had a pound of Bai Mu Dan in stock and decided that this was the time to use it since Bai Mu Dan has always been like a summertime type of tea. It’s light, refreshing and is naturally cooling. Even when I drink it hot, I find it to be very cooling and much more refreshing than a cold soda. (Then again, I may be biased?)

To that pound of Bai Mu Dan, I added orange blossoms, dried orange segments and then I diced up some vanilla bean and added some natural flavors to create a creamsicle type of experience. It’s sweet, refreshing and really, really good!

I’ll be adding this to the website by Sunday evening.

Flavors: Creamy, Fruity, Honey, Orange, Sweet, Vanilla

Marzipan

I got some vanilla bean powder and it’s pretty good, I wonder how that would work in a tea? It was sent to me free for review.

One of the companies I get spices from sells a powdered vanilla bean but I haven’t tried it. I worry that it might be too fine a powder for the tea – that the consistency wouldn’t work quite right – and because vanilla bean is probably the most expensive ingredient that I work with on a regular basis, I don’t want to spend that kind of money on an experiment so work with the whole beans instead.

That sounds delicious! Where do you buy your orange blossoms? I’ve been looking for some.

@rosebudmelissa – I get mine from a wholesale supplier, I wish I could be of more help.

Full Disclosure: The individual operating this UserID is the Mad Tea Artist who creates these blends every week. I’m aka LiberTEAS. I took over the 52Teas brand from Frank of Southern Boy Teas. I’m keeping both accounts active at the present time because I still have some tea reviews to post and I didn’t think that I should do that as 52Teas!
