585 Tasting Notes
It is truly delightful when raspberries in tea are done so well. This one is awesome! The scent wafting from the cup seemed very tart, and I was slightly wary of trying it, but it turned out to be quite tasty.
The coconut seems to be coming through in creaminess, and apparently what I thought were white chocolate chips were actually meringue hats. Thank goodness I read over that haha. Also, the description about sandy beaches and tanned skin is so fitting right now!
Thanks Cavovorax! What an exciting evening of tea tasting.
This smells divine. Hehe.
The scent is ever so much stronger than the flavour, but the flavour is still tasty. The nougat goodness is great. It’s sweet, but not too sweet. Sweet in a natural way. It seems even more flavour comes out as it cools.
I’ve now had two Bayswater teas and I really enjoyed both of them. I’m quite excited to visit Vancouver. I didn’t even have to Google their address because it was on the tea envelope.
Thanks Cavovorax for sharing!
P.S. I was packing up all my beach stuff and realized my epipen is expired. Agh! Thank goodness the pharmacy already had refills on file. Phew.
Sipdown of this great sample from keychange this morning.
Even as it cools, it seems to get better and better. I’m intrigued now. I plan on trying every first flush Darjeeling from Butiki. The hay flavour in teas seems to get me. Once I have it, I must always have it. White Rhino had the same effect with the hay quality.
P.S. My non-tea drinking friend sent me this last night. I thought it was pretty funny. http://s770.photobucket.com/user/courtneyns/media/Steepster/tea_zps66db2496.jpg.html?sort=3&o=0
I am so close to a sipdown here, but I must find a way to get more. I love this tea, however infrequently I drink it. It’s just comforting in a delicious, bready way.
I ordered 3 oz. last time, but I think 2 oz. may be a safer bet this time around. It’s lost a wee bit of flavour because it takes me an age to drink.
Burn baby, burn. This is
I’ve already added it to my Amazon cart. I couldn’t believe the whole package was for 6-8 oz. of water. I used 15oz. and it is strong. Delicious, yes, but strong. It was also awesome to just watch all the crystals dissolve instantly upon my pouring boiling water in. Thanks OMGsrsly!
Enjoying this tea as I settle in to study before my exam tomorrow. The creaminess will never get old. The black base is great, and of course the cream accentuates it wonderfully.
This morning was quite eventful. I have a psychology presentation and paper due the day I return from Jamaica, which meant I had to get my research done beforehand. The abundant time spent on planes will be perfect for preparing the actual paper and presentation. I decided to examine social influence in religion. And what better way to examine than to attend a meeting/service/mass? So that is what I did this morning. I may be a scientist, but that doesn’t stop me from having a curiosity about religion, and overall it was a fascinating experience.
I thought I had mixed Cheesecake with milk and popped it in the fridge, but it turned out it was Coconut. That was a lovely surprise. I actually added just a wee touch of sugar because I find it helps the coconut in cold milk.
Hopefully this will give me the kick I need to finish off the reading part of my studying for my exam on Monday. Tomorrow’s studying will be all writing and rewriting. The cat has been sleeping on the couch for about four hours and I just want to nap too.
This one is pretty awesome. There is a distinct, rich vanilla flavour, with a strong, but not overwhelming black base. I could happily drink plenty of this one. I bet it would be tasty chilled too.
Angrboda you were right about this one! Thanks for sharing. :)
Speaking of chilled, we have blowing snow and a ‘feels like’ temperature of -20 here. UGH. But in Jamaica it feels like 40. AH YES.
The scent of coconut and banana wafting from this cup promises for something wonderful.
I kept pulling out this sample from keychange’s swap envelope and staring at it the last few days, because in my efficiency, I deleted our message and forgot what all she sent. This one was a mystery, and it has been bothering me since her envelope arrived. Today it finally hit me that it was this tea. This tea! The tea that everyone loved. So of course, I brewed it up immediately.
Both the banana and coconut are apparent, yet not overwhelming. AKA perfection. True to Butiki style. I’m also thrilled the back is PTA, rather than the original pu’erh planned. I’ll have to write a bit more later, because I had an incredibly garlicky dinner and I’m concocting ways to rid my mouth of the taste to further enjoy this tea. I clearly did not think through the timing for steeping. :P
Thanks keychange for sending me this one, and thanks to JustJames and Stacy for thinking and creating it.
