drank Cider Guayusa by Butiki Teas
1859 tasting notes

Another tea from the Group Order. :)

I was the only one interested in this tea, so I shrugged my shoulders and got a package to myself.

It’s really good. I’ve never had a guayusa before, so I have nothing to compare it to, but yummers. The apple and spice are nice and subtle, it smells like apple juice, and I’m really enjoying this.

Part of the fun is I’ve decided to try all my teas in some of the tea cups I’ve collected. So far I’ve used (and washed!) 3 tea cups.


(Sadly it increased anxiety, so I’m going to have to be careful about when I drink the guayusa teas I now have. Interestingly, regular teas and mate don’t seem to have much of an effect.)

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
