drank Cantaloupe & Cream by Butiki Teas
225 tasting notes

Sample sipdown! I’m trying to get through the box from Dexter3657 to make room for the Fusion tea arriving this week and the small Butiki order I placed yesterday.

I didn’t replace this because although it is very good the goal is to try as much Butiki tea as I can without going over budget.

I wouldn’t normally pick this as a morning tea but I need something low caffeine to give my liver a break from all the meds it has to process. Some of these also upset my stomach, I feel so very painfully full although I haven’t eaten since yesterday at 6. Uuugh! So anyway, I picked this tea. So, so delicate.

Going for a second steep as we speak. Just what I needed. Might not have medicinal properties but at least it Is gentle and very enjoyable.

And since we’re sharing pictures, this is what tea looks like a my house this morning:

Thanks! Someone brought it for me as a gift all the way from India a year ago when I was not even into tea. It was a pretty gift and I used it mostly for decoration on one of my kitchen shelves, I sure am putting it to good use now!

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, I’m a chef and a wine lover with a trained palate but find that I lack the linguistic prowess for tea tasting notes. Now there’s something to learn!

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.
