1424 Tasting Notes
I don’t care that this is caffeinated, it is delicious and comforting and I just needed that tonight.
Two steeps, even. :)
(This is another must-have Butiki tea. Pretty much all my must-haves are Assams. Huh.)
Flavors: Caramel, Honey, Malt, Sweet, Vanilla
I had this tea at breakfast this morning. I managed to get up early enough to have a cup in a real mug at home. :) That was nice.
Sadly, I’m not too thrilled with this tea. It’s just not a set of flavours that I’m liking together very much. It’s not really appley enough, and the base teas were very much in the background this morning.
Oh well. I think I have one serving left, so that’s fine. Maybe I’ll take it camping. Everything tastes better (“better”) when out camping!
Oh yeah this is a favourite. I gave my BFF her teas tonight, and made us a pot of this to share while she cleaned the frogs and I dealt with whatever it was I was doing.
I’m drinking the second steep right now, actually.
We both really REALLY like this tea. I highly recommend it. I love the slight tartness, the strawberry, the custard. Yum.
(3 min for first steep, 4 min for the second)
This morning I had coffee, but I also managed to make up a mug of this to bring with me.
So tasty. I need to grab some whiskey so I can have this as a toddy when I’m out camping. :D
Oh tea, how I miss drinking mugs and mugs and mugs of you every day. Soon I will get things together again so I can make 2-3 mugs to bring with me for the day. :)
Mmm. Marshmallow leaves, vanilla… this is so good. And I’m almost out! Although I’ve been thinking I’m almost out for ages, so maybe the marshmallow leaf bits are multiplying in the cupboard when I’m not watching. :)
Flavors: Marshmallow, Vanilla
(Gluten free version!)
Sil, your tea is freaking AMAZING. OMG, it’s perfect. It tastes like rhubarb and strawberry custard. I decided to add milk this morning, but it was good without. And it’d be fab with sugar too if you lean that way.
Love it. Oh man, I don’t want to pass this on to my friend! Can I steal a portion of her birthday present?
Flavors: Custard, Rhubarb, Strawberry
There’s two options for this tea, and I don’t get it. Eenie meenie miney moe.
I didn’t have a chance to make tea this morning, so I got this on break at work. Because it’s a university and exams are over, EVERYTHING but the sbux is closed. :( Sucks so much. All I wanted was a cookie, and I ended up having to get this instead.
It… was tea. I added some milk and a touch of sugar, just because. It did the job, but it really isn’t a favourite.
Basically I’m spending too much time up late in the evening planning a trip to the Kootenays. :) Should be fun. Camping and hiking for 10 days. 10 days without the internet, though. How will I manage?
I, uhh, bought this for my BFF but since I hadn’t tried it before I thought I’d give it a go.
OMG, the blackberry and lime is INCREDIBLE. The smell is great, and the flavour is mostly great.
Too bad it’s not honeybush. I really don’t like the flavour of guayusa.
Flavors: Blackberry, Green, Hay, Lime
Sipdown. Thanks for the sample, Shmiracles!
I figure that since I’ve been hulking out lately (anxiety sucks!) and my emotions are all over the place, something calming might be nice.
It’s a decent tea. Yep, mostly chamomile, a little orange, good with honey.
I still like my homebrew chamomile mix better, but this is a pretty tasty option. Especially if you like green tea.
Sample from Dinosara. Thank you!
As this was steeping, all I was thinking was, “Uh oh.” It didn’t smell that good at all. The chocolate and everything just wasn’t doing it for me.
And then I tasted it. Oh yum! It’s morphed into a roasted almond butter with chocolate and some sugary sweet flavours. So good with a dash of milk!
This is definitely a tea I’d consider picking up small amounts of. I don’t think I’d reach for it too often due to the smell of the chocolate as it steeps, but the flavour is really neat and I’m appreciating it right now.
Flavors: Almond, Chocolate, Roasted nuts
