drank Ruby Pie by Butiki Teas
686 tasting notes

I’m going to start this with a story about my day – feel free to skip right ahead to notes on this tea at the bottom if you’d like :)

I spent the majority of last night extremely sick and slept away most of my night on the bathroom floor. This really did not make for a great start to my Monday morning. I barely dragged myself out of the bed I had somehow managed to get into at some point, and I ended up missing my first class. The class with the most terrifying prof with intense information overload each and every class. Delightful. I did make it for my next class, thank goodness. I also had the foresight to bring Bangkok in my Timolino today – favourite tea comfort, and ginger for the upset stomach. Mondays are my longest day, where classes run from 9-7:30p with one 1 hour break. So I endured all but one of my classes today with a horribly upset stomach and running on little sleep. Today was totally a sucky Monday. When I did finally arrive back home there was a tea parcel waiting for me, and this just seemed to make it all better – so thank you Cavovorax, and the speedy postal service, for brightening my day.

This was one in the package from Cavovorax. I have tried this one before and it just didn’t quite work out the first time. This time is going much better. I really do love rhubarb – almost as much as my love for watermelon and pumpkin. I don’t consume nearly as much or enough of it since I left home. I really should’ve brought my Mom with me to bake me rhubarb goodies. Why didn’t I have the foresight for that… Okay, back to this tea. I’m much happier this time around with it, and I’m even more thrilled it went into my Butiki order yesterday. I may try the resteep with a touch of sugar like is suggested. Yum!

I’m having the second resteep tonight and it is quite delicious. I’m even more excited about my Butiki order now.

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), science, travel, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs I’m working on at a snail’s pace, but so far I’m not loving them. Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true dark chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
