drank Peppermint Patty by Butiki Teas
700 tasting notes

This is one of the teas I go through so fast, I barely realize it’s just disappeared before my eyes. That’s true of the few herbals I have though. Considering I essentially only drink black teas, those few herbals serve to mix it up and reduce my caffeine intake.

This one is delightfully creamy from the chocolate chips, with a not overwhelming amount of peppermint. Peppermint is generally reserved for when I’m sick, so when it’s in a tea that I drink a lot, that’s quite an accomplishment.

I just finished packaging up some teas for my friend tomorrow. She asked me to bring some teas so she can start exploring the tea world. When I inquired as to if she preferred flavoured or straight, she wasn’t sure what straight tea was. Flavoured it is!

It’s funny because I know a few people who don’t understand the concept of a flavoured tea, and are only aware of the straight teas. Go figure!

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.
