drank Pistachio Ice Cream by Butiki Teas
709 tasting notes

Got this is a swap with Courtney.

The dry and brewed tea smells exactly like pistachio ice cream. Pistachio nuts and creamy. Mmmmm. The brewed tea also has a buttery, vegetal smell from the green tea.

The tea tastes just like it smells. There is a smooth, buttery, creamy texture with the taste of pistachios on top. I can lightly taste the green tea base.

Super delicious tea. Tastes just like the name implies. Thanks Courtney!

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
