171 Tasting Notes
Happy to report that I have mastered the art of steaming milk in the microwave. Victory for me this morning! Today will be busy for sure.
I love this tea and it’s going to help me make it through a day in retail before a stat day. Everyone panics when we close for a day.
My all time favourite. However, today it stole my day off. It always give me too much energy. I planned on a day filled with napping and netflix. I brewed up a cup and started a movie, after one cup I felt a little restless and brewed another. The movie got very dark and my woman hormones kicked in and I started bawling! In walks BoxerPapa “What’s the matter?” How embarrassing that I have to tell him the movie I’m watching that’s labelled as a comedy made me cry. He laughs at me and hugs me, we make more tea.
He goes back to work and I am WIRED! Decided to make a sandwich. Well, I ended up cleaning my whole house thoroughly and I just made my sandwich.
The new crop tastes different though, not too different, almost juicier.
I was nervous to try this one after reading the description. Floral aroma, woodsy. That’s exactly what it is, but it is soooo good! It smells piney and tastes a little piney. Happy this was part of the tea of the month, especially since it’s sold out now!
Since it’s my day for twelve days of tea and I know what that is like, I’m having this again. It’s so good.
Day 2 of the 12 days exchange. I’ll tell you, this is blowing my advent calendar out of the water!
This became my very first matcha latte. It was pure heaven! I’m almost ashamed to admit that I have never had actual champagne. I can’t actually tell you how realistic it tastes, but it’s naturally sweet and smooth. I love it!
This was the perfect way to begin the much anticipated Twelve Days exchange. I was nervous because I have recently discovered my disdain for Jasmine. BUT, Pear tree has changed my mind. It was a perfect morning cup and set the direction for such a fantastic day and I couldn’t stop thinking about it.
This was a nice bold cup for the morning. I’m feeling super tired even though I had an exceptional amount of sleep. I’m still working my way through all of my new teas and this was a good one. Slightly juicy taste that I have been finding with a lot of butiki straight blacks.
This kicks the butt of ANY pumpkin tea I have ever had before. It actually tastes like real pumpkin, not fake pumpkin. I love nutmeg.
I have read sooo many reviews from Awkward Soul and I finally decided to order some. I am SOOOOO glad I did. I had previously tried straight guayusa and I did not enjoy it in the least. But, I had next to no sleep last night and my day involved 8 hours in a retail setting 2 weeks before xmas. . .
So I made this my second cup of the day and it was perfect.
The lemon isn’t sour and it isn’t creamy. It’s kind of like a lemon sucker. Yet another butiki staple.
Out of all the teas I ordered I was actually most excited for this one. I have no idea why, I was just looking forward to a nice, bold cup of simple, black tea.
Conveniently enough I had the worst sleep of my life last night stewing over my crappy day yesterday. Been awake since 1am now. . . Having this before I get myself ready for work.
It really does smell like raisins while it steeps. i wish it would cool faster. I need to get my butt in gear! lol
Oh it’s exactly what I was looking for! Complex, like you’ve got the whole leaf in your mouth. Bold like tea’s equivalent of dark roast. Sweet, I definitely catch the caramel in there!
A new staple, I should have known. :)
