drank Nutmeg Cream by Butiki Teas
93 tasting notes

Not posting a number…I accidently over steeped it and it was God awful.
Can anyone offer me their best steeping instructions for this?
Thanks a bunch!

Suziqzer

I’m not familiar with that one yet, so I can’t help you but the name sounds enticing. I hope you can find it’s sweet spot !

CelebriTEA

Thanks Suzi…I love Nutmeg…I am thinking I need to steep it shorter…
Perhaps add a little honey…? Hopefully, I can turn it around…

Verdant’s review is spot on.
I love bergamot (here grapefruit & orange)
I have never been big on chocolate in tea, but lately
a couple have really turned my head….
This being one of them ;-D
Congrat’s Verdant…this one is worthy of Celebration!
Great for a bubble bath, reading a book by the fire or
Or just plain relaxing in your favorite cuddle nook~
This lovely tea makes dealing with these terrible low outside temps bearable ♡

Preparation
3 tsp 16 OZ / 480 ML

This is a very fresh & clean tasting green tea.
I don’t taste the eucalyptus, pine or sorrel individually,
AND although this tea tastes slightly medicinal in a way I
cannot adequately describe… I truly like this tea so much.
It is a very nice palate cleansing tea and would be good with
Oriental foods (Chinese, Thai, Japanese, etc…)
But could easily be enjoyed after dinner and before any dessert.
This is GOOD ;-)

Preparation
2 tsp 16 OZ / 480 ML

Just drank my last of this (sigh)
Extremely sad…. Please Verdant,
Tell me when this is available again…
I would purchase at least every other month.
Love the light licorice taste, elderberry spices and the fennel
Yes! I love to chew on the fennel.
This is my favorite tea and along with Steepster & Friends
(And of course, God,)
Got me through my mother’s passing.
I don’t need to be sick to enjoy this herbal.
Just love it :-D

I just looked at their website … If I’m looking at the right one, they currently have it in stock!

CelebriTEA

Definitely not my cup of tea.
No taste of cinnamon, cloves or mint.
Rather bland, but in a medicinal way.
I drank a full pot, but couldn’t bear to do a re-steep.
The red liqour is intoxicating & I had high hopes for this one
((Sigh))

Eco-Cha 一口茶

Hi CelebriTEA! Thanks for posting this tasting note, I’m sorry to hear you didn’t enjoy the tea though!

I wanted to share a little more info on the tasting notes and where we are coming from with ‘cinnamon’. In Taiwan, Red Jade is often described as having a note of cinnamon in its aroma and aftertaste. In Taiwanese culture, cinnamon is used as a medicinal ingredient in traditional herbal remedies and in cooking recipes that use traditional Chinese medicine ingredients for flavoring. This is in contrast to our common experience of cinnamon in baked goods or beverages if it is combined with sweeteners and other flavoring. So the tasting note in Red Jade is of the aromatic, slightly bitter quality in cinnamon rather than the sweetness that might be associated with it in western cuisine.

I completely understand this might not be ‘your cup of tea’ ;-) though! Just wanted to share a couple notes.

Have a great day and enjoy whatever is in your cup!

CelebriTEA

Thank you for that note~ explains it to a “tea”

This was light on blueberry flavor compared to the Blueberry tea from David’s..
I admit, I have fallen in love with David’s teas.
This particular tea has it’s own merits…it does have that cakey flavor
But in a really SMOOTH way that screamed I am cheesecake with decadent blueberries.
This is a nice tea and although not my favorite blueberry tea it is
Supa Nice
Try it, you will like it…

I am not obsessed, but I do love it.
Such a refreshing way to start off the morning.

I think Tulsi must be a NO for me.
Three blends with tulsi? (Sigh)
The upside is that by getting three tulsi blends together…
I I was able to pretty much identify it is a definite dislike for me :-(

TheTeaFairy

I know I’m not a fan either, I have had it by itself only, no blend, and it has a very peculiar taste I’m not a fan of…so I don’t know how it translates into a blend…

Sil

hmmmmm guess i should crack mine open tonight and see

CelebriTEA

Sil I would definitely be curious of others impressions…

CelebriTEA

Sil ~ Did you ever try this?
Just curious…

Sil

yes. i hated it….57 hated it. ie. drinkable under penalty of taking delicious teas away from me but otherwise no thanks.

CelebriTEA

LOL @ Sil…glad I wasn’t the only one to feel that way :-p

Sil

you are not alone sistah!

CelebriTEA

.Thanks Sil ;-)

Not my style at all…unsure if it is the tulsi?
What I know is this month had three tulsi blends…
I loved one and strongly disliked the other two :-(

yappychappy

kinda confused with verdant’s business decisions.. their first “free” minisample to start monthly was 3 pu-erhs now the first 3 flavoreds are all tulsi? odd.

CelebriTEA

Perhaps they are doing that as a means of comparing quality among similar teas?
That can kinda suck when, for example, there are 3 Tulsi teas and you figure out you dislike Tulsi. On the other hand, it was probably the one thing that helped me to determine Tulsi is not a favorite of mine. I love Verdant, so I try not to be critical and yet
I am very open about my likes and dislikes :-)
