90 Tasting Notes

The cinnamon has a brighter taste…at least on the first steep.
But this tea is truly lovely.
Each of the essences are combined in such a harmonious way…
You definitely get the Pu -er taste, but in laid back, more refined way…
This has me singing “it’s easy like Sunday mornin”
This quality pu~er blend has a lot more to give…
perhaps some of those other ingredients will shine in successive steeping
I am going to be drinking a lot of this…

Preparation
0 min, 45 sec 2 tsp 14 OZ / 400 ML
MissLena

I can’t wait to try my bag of this tomorrow!!

CelebriTEA

2nd steep 30 seconds…
predominately still tasting cinnamon , but this still has a lot in it

CelebriTEA

Third steep~well, lol, forgot it cooking.
Unsure how long I steeped it, but it was NOT astringent or bitter.
Rather, it revealed more complexities and now the cinnamon is a bit
more subdued and the ingredients taste more balanced, yet bold and righ.
This is a really nice pu-er blend.

CelebriTEA

Rich NOT righ….lol…
I have more typos than anyone I know ;-p

CelebriTEA

4th steep(30sec)~ this is tasting an awful lot like
French Toast with cinnamon on top ♡

So far, this is my favorite matcha…
mixed with whole milk (cold) & a touch of stevia.
I love eggnog and this is to die for.
Thank you Miss B ☆

I have never enjoyed a chocolate tea as much as this!!!
It reminds me of chocolate covered raisins with added berries, and creamy vanilla.
But I steeped it about 4 minutes.
I love a good, deep, rich flavor and I cannot for the life of me,
see getting that from a 30 second steep.
It was far worth the extra steeping time for me…transporting me to Heaven.
THIS IS DIVINE

Flavors: Berries, Chocolate, Raisins, Vanilla

Preparation
1 tsp 11 OZ / 340 ML
CelebriTEA

I am drinking the re steep this afternoon~luxurious…yum

This tastes rather one dimensional to me.
It isn’t until it starts to cool that you start to get any floral or fruity notes.
This is not a bad tea, but certainly not great either.
I prefer to begin sipping my tea hot…While it did not deserve to hit the drain,
It is undeserving of accolades…JMHO

What a lush and decadent tea
This feels like silk in your mouth and the fragrance
of the tea when your are drinking it is a subtle, floral, Heaven .
This has a divine, but not overpowering fruity flavor
with hints of honey.
The entire experience of my nose in the teacup inhaling deep & slow…
to holding the liquor in my mouth savoring each mouthful,
is delicate, yet intoxicating.
This is a Truly Exceptional tea.
Highest recommendation ;-)

Preparation
2 tsp 14 OZ / 400 ML

Mmm…As soon as I smelled this in the package, I was so excited to try it.
It’s scent and flavor are reminiscent of Kellogg ’ Honey Smacks.
The liquor is about the color of dirty water, but the roasted, sweet & nutty flavor
are extremely satisfying. Enjoying this to the fullest..

gmathis

Honey Smacks! That would be awesome!

CelebriTEA

It really is awesome~ worth trying…my Dad also says it taste like Honey Smacks
He couldn’t believe that flavor in a tea!

Marzipan

Oh good, looks like we got the same Steepster box! I haven’t tried them yet.

CelebriTEA

It is wonderful, Marzipan~ let me know if you love it too!

drank Birthday Cake by DAVIDsTEA
90 tasting notes

This looks and smells so yummy…even dry…I smell white cake and maple syrup.
So, the sweet cake iness of this blows me away.
I was sure I had reviewed this once before, But I cannot find it.
I remember the first time I had tried this, I was blown away as well
I have never tried Oh Canada, so I have never had a tea like this.
I read one review that said this tasted like every other vanilla tea…
Au contrare…I taste the honey, maple syrup, creamy richness…mmm…
Most of all, I taste a Big white cupcake with frosting and sprinkles and No,
It is not my birthday, but it feels like it.
Thanks Alex :-)

I have been sicker than a dog all day, and I honestly wasn’t up to par for multiple short steepings in my lil gaiwan…So, I opted instead, for 1-45second steeping, and 2-1 minute steepings in a glass pot. Mysterious, earthy and lightly smokey.
I am sure this has many more infusions left and while this particular puerh is not especially complex, it feels to me like classic puerh without any bitterness or other distractions~ straightforward.
This is good

Sil

so sorry you’ve been under the weather :( glad the tea seemed to be tasty! :)

CelebriTEA

What is this lingering after taste? I can’t truly identify it,
but it’s slightly sweet & understated.

Suziqzer

Hope you’re feeling better soon!

CelebriTEA

Thanks Sil & Suzi~
The tea definitely pulled me through.

mrmopar

Hope you feel better soon! The “bug” has been around here as well. Yucky feeling to have. lots of good puerh will leave that sweet aftertaste.

CelebriTEA

Thanks Mr Mopar that is good to know!

drank Ruby Pie by Butiki Teas
90 tasting notes

What a great tea version of Strawberry Rhubarb Pie…mmm…
I am so sick of Winter, and this tea has me wishing even stronger for Summer
and a fresh, warm slice of Strawberry Rhubarb pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top~
♡ Super Delish Dessert Tea here ♡
I think picking out individual tasting notes would kind of defeat the overall blend taste
for me and this is PURRFECTION

Amanda Wilson

I am going to definitely have to try this, I LOVE strawberry rhubarb pie but have a bit of a rhubarb allergy…but since this just tastes like it I should be safe!

Butiki Teas

Amanda-We use organic natural flavorings. They often have the real ingredients in them. We use rhubarb flavoring in this blend. If you would like, I could find out if there is real rhubarb in the flavoring.

Amanda Wilson

That would be really helpful! It is not a severe allergy, just makes my mouth really itch annoyingly so who knows if a small amount would have the same effect. Thank you :)

Suziqzer

Sounds like another good one from Butiki :)

CelebriTEA

I hope it works for you, Amanda.
Suzi, sounds like you have discovered the yum in Butiki Teas!
This is another fabulous one, and the re steep is lovely as well :-)

Butiki Teas

Amanda-Just wanted to let you know that I sent in a formal request, so hopefully we will find out in a few days whether rhubarb is used or not. :)

Butiki Teas

Amanda-The rhubarb flavoring does not have any rhubarb allergen in it, so you are good to go. :)

Amanda Wilson

Very awesome! Thanks for letting me know, hopefully I will be able to give it a try soon :)

I tasted no lemon or apricot.
It does have what I perceive to be a muscatel quality, but admit I am enough
of a newbie to state I am still very much learning about teas,
especially darjeelings, I was believing that I hated them all (darjeelings)until I tried this one.
By Far the best Darjeeling I have ever tried.
Very pleasant (muscatel? ) aroma…slightly dry, astringent tea…In a good way.
I could be persuaded to try additional darjeelings based on this tea.
