Some people just don’t get it…

I shared a pot of this with my husband this afternoon. I told him to savor the tea and appreciate its unique flavor. He seemed to like it, but I could not for the life of me get him excited about it. I kept trying to lead him on to say it was amazing and stupendous, and he just kept saying, “it’s good, I like it!”

That’s it. No more tea for him! ;)

LOL! That sounds like me and my husband. I think he’s getting sick of me shoving a steaming cup under his nose and asking, “Doesn’t that smell good?” :)

Butiki Teas

That sounds like my hubby too.

Exactly. My husband only gets teas I’m tired of or don’t like. He can’t tell the difference, I make space for better things, we save money on juice. Everyone wins! I win twice. :)

Hahaha… Excellent. I think I’ll adopt your system.

Profile

Bio

I happily reside in Park Slope, Brooklyn with my husband, our baby son, and our dog. I teach over 40 piano students per week at my home studio and created “Fundamental Keys”, a classical piano method book and video series.

My husband and I are vegan and have been for about 8 years. We are enjoying bringing up our little one in the vegan tradition!

I went through a major tea phase some years ago (2006-2009) and had quite a collection and tasted hundreds of varieties. Then I went off caffeine when I decided to have a baby, and after he was born I got into a nasty coffee habit. Now I’ve come back to tea, thank goodness. I’m finding my tastes have changed quite a bit since my first go at tea fanaticism. Really enjoying some of the amazing and deliciously complex teas I’ve learned about through Steepster!
