SIPDOWN!

…and i’m sad to say while this is the most wonderful smelling tea that i’ve ever smelled…i managed to go through pretty much the entire ounce without ever finding the tea to go with the smell. I’m not sure if this ounce was just a bad batch or what, but Kittenna had the same issues that I did when she borrowed a sample. It makes me sad as this is the first Butiki tea that i genuinely don’t like. (teas that aren’t to my taste don’t count, since those i can appreciate for what they are…this tea on the other hand is everything in a tea that i should love.)

I’m glad that others have found this enjoyable but there’s a bitterness to it that doesn’t equate with the deliciously amazing orange and chocolate smell. Even with a bit of sweetner or with milk it just wasn’t doing it for me.

Ah well, at least i tried…and there’s always creamy sweet wonderful amazing eggnog…right? :)

I’m going to receive a sample of this one with my Butiki Order.I’ll try not oversteep it as you mention bitterness

I too have a sample on the way with my order.

in one of my other tealogs, stacy recommended 1 tsp instead of 1.5 as well as possibly taking out some of the orange. Other ppl have successfully brewed this though, so i suspect it was either my batch or there’s something in this that disagrees with me. :(

it smells AMAAAAAZZIIIIIIIING!

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.
