drank Cantaloupe & Cream by Butiki Teas
1482 tasting notes

Sipdown! I cold steeped this overnight, and had some of it today. Sadly, cold steeping brought out a bitter tinge that I really didn’t like. Good thing I didn’t chuck my leaves! Trying another overnight steep to see if that works.

Between this and Watermelon Xylophone, I definitely prefer the watermelon. Probably because I like the base more. Silver needles are just.. more. Thicker, sweeter, better.

Really? I prefer this over the watermelon.

OMGsrsly

I don’t like bai mu dan, even if it’s really nice bai mu dan. :) I also don’t really like melons. I might have a couple pieces of watermelon and one cantaloupe a year. Maybe. I think I like Watermelon Xylophone so much just because of the base.

Bio

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!
