drank Butter Truffle by ESP Emporium
4303 tasting notes

This isn’t the first time I’ve tried this tea, I actually tried it some time last week, but I forgot to log it.

This was a very unexpected tea, mostly because I failed to read the description or the list of ingredients. I purchased it based solely upon the name Butter Truffle. My sweet tooth could not resist the name.

But that is not to say that I’m disappointed, because this is rather delightful. It has more of a savory quality than I expected, but, it is quite nice. I’m loving the smoky tones of the cumin and the warm peppery notes, as well as the hints of sweetness from the almonds, pistachios and hints of citrus.

YUM!

wow, that sounds just like Carnival by Sanctuary T (which I love). Same ingredients and everything! Has anyone compared both? Are one or both of the companies reselling from elsewhere? http://steepster.com/teas/sanctuary-t/1143-carnival

It’s quite possible that they are the same tea… I have not tried them side by side though.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
