My sipdowns may have been slowed up by receiving my Butiki order today, which was awesome. My sipdown tally for today includes:

French Vanilla matcha
Divine Temptation (just until I pick up more next week!)
and 3 samples (Good Feeling, Mind Palace, and Tamarind Pop)

Tomorrow I have an exam, so I won’t be in the house for half the day at least. We shall see what sort of sipdowns I can manage.

P.S. It’s raining! I wait all year for the one month it rains here, and my wellies are scheduled to arrive tomorrow! Perfection.

Butiki! Rain! Everything is wonderful!

Yay, wellies!
Just curious what mind palace tea is? Sherlock, clearly

Courtney

I didn’t do a note because, uhm, it got dumped. It was from Beastly Beverages and was a pu’erh. Pu’erhs and I generally do not get on well.

Mind Palace? I’m assuming it came from me. Zero pu-erh in there, just a blend of Assam and Ceylon. It is a weird one though, I must admit.

Courtney – FYI rain here has been minimal for us. IE not even hikers have gotten even a little wet

Courtney

It’s not pu’erh MissB? Whaaaat? I’m having a hard time with that. It did come from you, well from VariaTEA to me, but from you to her.

Sil thanks for the heads up! I’m still bringing them hehe. But I am excited for good weather there. And OCEAN.

Oh that does sound weird

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.
