drank Cranberry Creme by Market Spice
72 tasting notes

I was in Seattle for the morning and decided to poke my head in Market Spice. I’m not sure how great of a decision that was because it turned into a shopping spree. An hour of perusing later and this Cranberry Creme is one of the little goodies that came home with me!

A berry and sweet cream scent fills the air and the smell reminds me of the berry cereals that I would eat as a kid. You know, the ones that are really bad for you and make the milk turn into a pink sugary sludge. I definitely taste the cream but the cranberry flavor is light and almost just a subtle aftertaste.

So far, this and Honey Flower are my favorites of the MarketSpice that I’ve sampled. I noticed that trying one type of tea makes me (almost compulsively) want to try different brands of similar teas, so maybe it’s a blessing in disguise that I don’t live closer to any teashops…

drank Lychee Oolong by Butiki Teas

I just received this as a sample in my Butiki Tea order and actually like it even more then what I ordered! It reminds me of Bubble Tea but the bonus is that I can control the amount of sugar that’s in it. Next to tapioca pearls, Lychee jelly is my favorite thing to add to Bubble Tea and this tastes exactly like it. Mmmm.

This tea is smooth yet thick and with 1 cube of sugar, it’s bliss. I had to split my steep with my daughter as she kept stealing my cup away…it looks like this Lychee Oolong is a new family favorite!
