drank Organic Guranse by Butiki Teas
689 tasting notes

Okay you guys, I had the brilliant idea to pair my wireless keyboard with the iPad. Hello! The only thing is that my wireless keyboard is Swedish, and therefore has different keys in different places. Thank goodness for muscle memory and knowing where all my punctuation marks are. Mwuahaha.

This one was a sample I requested in my latest Butiki order. It brews up a nice medium colour and the scent has that honey sweetness that I love. However, upon my first few sips I feel as though I’m getting the subtlest hint of smoke. Eek. I’m still sipping away though, so perhaps it’s all in my imagination. I’m always thrilled to try new Butikis, but I don’t think this one will make it to my cupboard anytime in the near future.

Courtney

Thanks! I thought it was pretty smart too. I find it handy when I type in Swedish because of their extra letters. :)

Sil

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.
