206 Tasting Notes
I AM IN LOVE! Thank you thank you thank you Stephanie for this very generous amount in our swap:) I have FINALLY SUCCESSFULLY made my first matcha latte. I always had a lot of trouble of making matcha, but not this time! :D I used my ninja pulse single serve blender to make a foamy iced latte/Frappe out of this and it was so good. It is crazy how such a tiny serving of this goes a LONG ways. It so intriguing that this is a WHITE Matcha. It has a tad bit more natural sweetness to it than your average green Matcha. Anyways thank you again for this I will be savoring this and eventually hope to invest in some myself. But not being in the position for a while to buy tea:( Until then, my swap quantity will have to do:)
Still going through my swap with Stephanie. I spotted this last night and set it out so I would have it for breakfast this morning and that I did. After I let is steep and cool a little bit I sipped it and could instantly pick out the malt flavor. I thought why not add some sweetener and milk. It created the creaminess if a chocolate malt shake. Even though I could nit quite find the chocolate in it, I will not give up. It might be that i could not find cacao nibs in my sample. I will have to try again. And Stephanie… you are a gem for always going through my shopping list and adding from that what you have :) thank you!
I’m going through my swap with Stephanie and I stumbled upon this GEM. It was on my shopping list hoping it would be reblended soon but no need. Behold my “tea-mule” has got me hooked on another tea. Loving this! You can totally taste the cheesecakey-ness in this tea. I added a little sugar and cream and Whah-LAH there is the creaminess of the coconut as well! Thank you Stephanie!!!!
This was a sample from the lovely Stephanie. I don’t know about this one. I’m not getting the coconut, and that is a shame because I am a COCONUT LOVER! Its a nice green. Nice and toasty. And maybe there is that hint of coconut but not that creaminess that I was looking for maybe. It’s not terrible by any means, just maybe not one I would keep in my cupboard. I will definitely finish this sample up though! Thank You!
I cannot remember who I got this one from. I know I got it from a swap though. HA HA. Maybe KallieBoo ? Anyways… this one went on my shopping list right away. I love the mixture not only mint and chocolate but green tea too? Mind Blown. I have yet to find a Butiki Tea that doesn’t blow my mind. Yet another great experience from one of Stacy’s blend. Thank you to whoever I received this from. Ha Ha I just wish I had more than one cup worth. This is a major back log too. I had this last week… I haven’t been logging lately because I have been super sick and super busy with work.
I had this with my breakfast this morning. I was very intimidated with it at first by the smell. But, I bought it for a reason so I went with it. This tea would be a great tea for when you are sick or want a soothing tea after a long day. The spearmint actually contributes to that aspect. The marshmallow root adds a touch of sweetness. It definitely has a “MISTY” flavor. I don’t know what to call it or how to describe it, besides…. misty. ha ha. As it cooled, I enjoyed it even more. I feel like green teas have that effect though. As they cool, the taste comes off stronger. All in all this is a good 52teas choice. :)
I have not really been on here all week. I am working 15 hours days and have been so exhausted. I have a lot of backlogging to do now.
Anyways, I got this in the mail yesterday and I now understand what all the ranting and raving was about! I am in love with this tea. This is definitely a staple in my cupboard. Like a LBD, but just the “little perfect tea.” You can almost taste the flakiness of the brioche. The butter, the almonds, just truly decadent. You have this anytime of the day any time of the year. Thank you steepsters for talking this tea up. I have found a soulmate. There is nothing at all wrong with this tea. THE PERFECT TEA. Seeing as I am a baker, I find this tea to be a great addition to my life. Enjoying the carbs without actually having to intake them! ha ha
Another Verdant Tea that I will definitely have to bulk up on. I absolutely love everything about this tea. I drank it over and over today. I lost count of the steeps because i kept it in my tea press travel mug and just kept filling it back up during the day as I ran errands and adventured in Morro Bay with my boyfriend and roommate. The first steep this morning at home in my tribal print mug was thick. It threw me off, but the all spice notes I picked up right away and then the honey notes peeked through. This was a very full tea. The second steeping I picked up the cinnamon and clove. I love love love it. This tea was a spicy on but a spice that I could tolerate seeing as I fell in love with this one!!!! Its a very comforting tea. Its like drinking an image of being wrapped up in a warm fuzzy blanket relaxing by a fire or overlooking scenery from a mountain top cabin. :)
