Backlogging from last night.

I’m not sure how I feel about this one anymore. It seems to be pretty hit or miss each time I brew it. Sometimes it’s a smooth wonderful delicious blending of chocolate and orange and then the next it will have this weird aftertaste to it that just makes me not want to finish drinking it. I haven’t yet figure out if it’s how I’m brewing it or what, so if anyone has any suggestions feel free to comment! I want very much to love this a lot because not only is it a damn pretty tea but it’s got one of my favourite flavour combos going on. Dropping the rating until i figure out what’s wrong with it or what i’m doing wrong.

Do you have enough of this for me to have a sample? It’s on my potential-order list, but if you’re not a huge fan it would be great to try it first!

Sil

Should be doable.

Butiki Teas

Hmmm, I think it might be the leafing. We put the serving suggestion pretty much at the max at 1/2 level tablespoon per 8oz water. Anything over that tastes kind of off to me. 1 level teaspoon also works for 8oz of water. I think this tea is a bit picky with the amount of tea used.

Ok. Thanks Stacy :) I’ll keep playing….I REALLY love these flavours and it smells divine!!

Butiki Teas

No problem. Also, you may want to try it at 195F degree water temp to see if that makes a difference. Good luck!

Bio

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.
