drank Pistachio Ice Cream by Butiki Teas
4889 tasting notes

so let me just say, it’s hot! I’m cleaning and the weather here is hot and I’m drinking hot tea all day lol. I must be insane. Nw I am not a fan of pistachio ice cream, but I am a fan of butiki teas! So when indigobloom asked if I wanted to try it I of course said “more tea?! Ok!”

This is not a tea I’d order again but I’m glad for the chance to taste it. I think I have a few friends who would really love it so I’ll be letting them know. I DO however love the smooth taste of this tea and the nutty flavor. It’s not a bad tea – just not one I’d keep regularly in my cupboard since there are so many others I love more :)

it reminds me of rockets… I’m not sure why. I use it for dessert sometimes :D

Sil

Lol gotta be careful when you use that word around here Helena…..in the US rockets are actually smarties….not to be confused with our smarties. ;)

Helena

aaah interesting. So what do they call our rockets down there then?

Sil

Smarties. Which is why I suspect OUR rockets are called rockets….

OUR smarties aren’t sold in the us….Unless that’s changed recently, pretty sure they wouldn’t do very well either given the monopoly/insanity that is the us and their m&m craze

Helena

that’s okay we don’t get the good flavours of Kit-Kat those are reserved for Japan. Japan gets honey flavoured, green tea, cherry blossom etc… shame those Kit-Kats are only in Japan…

Sil

Neat! Didn’t know that was the case. In other random flavour news, if you ever go to disney’s epcot (in florida, though i assume they have the same thing in california) there’s coke stand where you can try the different kinds of coke products that are sold/popular in different countries around the world. It’s neat! and free! lol

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
