drank Cantaloupe & Cream by Butiki Teas
272 tasting notes

Last one for the night. Unless I get up at midnight to drink some more. Have you ever wanted to stay up all night drinking a whole bunch of tea? That’s me today. My very own tea fairy, Dexter3657 sent me a whole bunch of them (including this one) and since I’m having trouble deciding which to drink I just want to stay up and have a tea marathon. But that’s just crazy talk because I’d be craving stuff in 3-4 days.

Well, I’ve been eyeing this tea on the website for what seemed like forever and today I finally have it in my cup. Gorgeous, gorgeous tea. Dry leaf nose is bang on cantaloupe. Beautiful golden liquor. Flavour matches the dry leaf smell. I want to throw ice in here so it can be as refreshing as cantaloupe but I’m afraid to water it down so I’m second steeping overnight in the fridge. I had just enough for two small cups so I’m hoarding the next sample until I really can’t take the craving anymore.

Now I must go and visit butiki teas for my very own 10 lbs of this. Ok, I’m kidding, but only partly.

Sorry I couldn’t send you more of it. I debated about sending it or not because I had so little. It was on your shopping list and I KNEW you would like it, so I did. At least you got to try it.

Me too — I totally want to stay up all night drinking teas. I’ve had to cut myself off early in the evening so the caffeine doesn’t keep me up late! Maybe this weekend I’ll do a tea marathon and stay up as late as I want!

Bio

Im a fairly recent follower of the loose leaf tea drinking cult. March 2013 to be exact. Never been much into tea before. Growing up in Romania, tea was something mom made for you when you were sick. As an adult, my hot beverage of choice has been coffee, both flavoured and regular. I’ve recently stumbled upon Teavana and DAVIDs TEA and quickly got addicted to the latter. Then came steepster and all else followed.

Formerly a mathematician and insurance adjuster, I gave up the corporate world and am now a professional chef. I drink wine and sometimes cheat on it with tea.

I prefer flavoured teas. It’s probably the newbie in me. I just don’t get cravings for a straight black tea. If I end up having one, I drop in a slice of lemon and artificial rum flavouring (ugh, what moron admits to this?). A black tea fixed this way reminds me of skating at an outdoor rink as a young one, with a thermos full of tea made just as I described..

Im learning so I drink them all. everything! Am even introducing myself to pu’erh. So far I can do fine with the sheng cause frankly, they don’t taste like pu’erh to me. The shou is another story.

NOTE: The virtual cupboard does NOT contain any of the samples I hold since most of them are one-cup quantity. Home improvements, mortgage, travel, wine and food have budget priority over tea.
