This tea is ok, but in no way notable. It’s green and it’s minty and that’s about it. Pretty mediocre for me.

Thanks for the taste moraiwe. Sipdown!

drank The Black Cat by Della Terra Teas

Another tea I tried without checking the ingredients. I was drawn in by the orange sprinkles, but the brew is an off-puttingly dark green. I guess that’s supposed to tie in with the Halloween theme, but it just weirds me out. The taste is sort of generically fruity and a touch tangy. Not a huge fan. Thanks for the taste Short Sorceress!

Yay, first tea from my Secret Pumpkin – thanks Short Sorceress!

I decided to drink this not knowing what it was (and I’ll continue drinking it forever just because… I wanted to make the Lamb Chop reference). This tea smells delectably like chocolate. It brews up a weird combination of green and brown… like brown with a layer of green on top. The flavor is primarily rich, thick chocolate, reminiscent of ZenTea Rooibos Belgian Chocolate. There’s something else here too – mint maybe? The mint comes out much more in the aftertaste. I actually rather like this. Which is surprising because Butiki’s Peppermint Patty is very similar in concept and I did not enjoy that tea at all. Maybe it’s the creaminess of that tea that didn’t work for me? This one tastes more like mint chocolate than peppermint patty. Not something I would drink every day but definitely a solid dessert tea.

drank Magicienne by Nina's Paris

Sipdown!

I’m trying to drink teas without knowing what’s in them and see if I can pick out the flavors. This one seemed very floral and a touch creamy without overwhelming the base tea. Of course once I looked up the description and saw pineapple and coconut, it totally tasted like that instead. So yeah, that’s bias for ya. Either way, this is quite tasty. I don’t even like coconut teas, but the flavor is very subtle here. And there’s a nice tanginess too. Thanks to Laurent at Nina’s Teas for the sample.

Perfect. Wonderful pineapple flavor, light and natural. Sweet and a touch tart but not too much of either. Just yummy and elegant with a refreshing aftertaste. I’m pretty sure I can make a bunch of little cups of tea and create a Butiki fruit salad with the Cantaloupe & Cream, the Watermelon Xylophone, the Flowery Pineapple Oolong – maybe even the Ruby Pie!

Sad to say this is a sipdown. Thanks to Sil for letting me try it!

EDIT: This is also fantastic iced.

I love this one!

Sooo… my cat spilled most of this all over my computer. But what I got to drink before he did that was tasty and soothing. I still really like the lavender in this. Good as a bedtime tea.

This is still so lovely. Alas, it’s a sipdown. On the other hand… yay, another sipdown!

I love this one too.

drank Pumpkin Milkshake by Butiki Teas

Boo, I didn’t put any sugar in the first steep. It’s still quite tasty without the sugar, but a touch of sugar really brings out the creaminess in a most enjoyable way. So I decided to get creative on the second steep and add maple flavored agave syrup. Um… no. That doesn’t work well at all. Lesson learned. Luckily, I still have more! Although at the rate I’m blowing through this bag I’ll need to reorder pretty soon. This is definitely my go-to flavored sweet tea at the moment.

Sil

Mmmmmmm

Stephanie

YAY! I’m totally ordering this one soon…

Had this yesterday while cleaning. Still perfectly cantaloupe and creamy. The taste is just dead on, simultaneously soothing and juicy. I only did two steeps. Both were lovely.

drank Tiramisu by California Tea House

Soooo good. Picking up more coffee flavor than last time. This is a sipdown and that makes me sad. Definitely going on the shopping list, if I ever get my stash low enough to justify buying it :)

Thanks to whatshesaid for the sample!
