Unique tea! Really glad I grabbed the Amoda box for a few months to try this one out. Huge thanks to whomever gave me the heads up! Blanking out on who it was…

This smells very much like pralines, or at the very least, nuts. I can almost taste the nuts as I inhale, if that makes any sense at all. I’m fascinated and shocked by this blend – while it’s far from my favorite Butiki blend, it is superb, and Stacy has done an excellent job of blending two unique flavors into a green tea, well. I’ll likely be one of the folks who pass on this if it’s offered in the future, only because the flavors are a bit far from my favorite flavor profiles.

Bio

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Now, it’s purge time. Time to gather what’s needed and let go of the rest. Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more. And so, I’m happy to share (anytime!) and will occasionally desire small amounts of tea for swaps, just to try.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, and work (dating columnist and consultant).

No-can-do: lavender, overly floral (French florals, or florals that are creamy rather than, well, floral work well!), sugar, Splenda, all grains.

Love: fruity, dessert, chai, spicy, all types of tea.
