5075 tasting notes

HOLY HELL! So for those of you out there who like spicy…. Go, go now and order this. Now admittedly I don’t have a high tolerance for spicy…but I’m working on it. I actually like this tea, though I can’t drink it haha. The tea is beautiful….this smells like Christmas….but then you take a sip…and it’s liquid spice…actually the initial taste isn’t..and if the entire tea was the initial taste, I could drink this. But hiding behind the initial taste is a spicy fiery ninja of liquid fire! HIYAH! Yah that’s right….

The worst part is…I keep trying to drink it, going omg! When it gets to the back of my tongue..and then forgetting its so spicy and trying again. Kinda like childbirth..but with less mess, a delicious taste and not nearly as painful….so not at all but yeah… Except for the forgetting part.

So go…try this if you enjoy a bit of a kick to your tea :)

Hahahaha! That made me laugh. Maybe try using a teaspoon instead of 1 1/2 teaspoons. Also sugar activates the cinnamon and reduces the spice a lot.

Stacy…sure…I know your tricks. I added sugar after trying it on its own and I’m convinced it was hotter ha! There’s a part of me that would love another sample sometime to mix it with like a chocolate tea or something…. Spicy delicious chocolate tea…mmmm

Gurmans Pepper Mango meets Harney Hot Cinnamon Spice? Awesome!

Butiki Teas

Hahaha, that’s too funny. Sorry, I don’t mean to laugh at your misery. I have no concept of hot since I eat ridiculously hot foods. Well, actually I did a spicy chocolate custom blend for Scott and I plan on adding one permanently. Here’s what he had to say about it: http://steepster.com/teas/butiki-teas/29934-smoldering-chocolate-decadence-custom He chose an awesome name for the blend too.

Butiki Teas

Oh yeah, add more water to your cup, that may help.

Sil

No misery here…. More like funny… Oooooh spicy! Ooh tasty…aaaah spicy….ooh tasty haha

Butiki Teas

Hahaha. Btw, this is great for colds. I brew it and immediately put my face over it to clear my sinuses when I’m sick and sip it to help clear my throat.

Sil

Wel THAT I can imagine!

I do craft shows during the winter and once I was helping a woman while another woman grabbed the sample container for Winter Fire and inhaled really deeply. I saw out of the corner of my eye and was like ‘noooooooo’ but it was too late. She had a look of complete shock on her face then immediately started a crazy sneezing fit.

Babble

LOL @ Stacy. I can just see that happening in my mind!

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.
