drank Pineapple Cilantro Cream by Butiki Teas
4043 tasting notes

I figured that I’d better try this tea before my swap partner ends up getting it in the mail and trying it before me. Not that it’s a big deal but it would make me sad to have not had it before them lol.

So let’s recap here. White teas make for boring teas for Sil. :)

With that in mind, i picked this up from stacy anyway because a) half an ounce of tea is never too much to go through. b) i’ll try nearly anything that stacy creates at least once. and sometimes more than once if it’s a damn tea that i really really really want to like

This tea? It’s interesting. I actually prefer the mango cilantro blend that Stacy created for IndigoBloom over this one. This does remind me of pineapple for sure, and it’s a nice enough tea but it doesn’t rock my rocks the way that most of stacy’s other blends do. I’m fairly certain that’s the subtlty of the white tea in this baes. I do really enjoy the pineapple and cilantro flavours but i keep wanting a stronger flavour. So while this is a tasty enough tea, it is not the tea for me.

Ok, this is the other white tea that I can’t taste. No tastebud activity whatsoever. I’m a freak!

Ysaurella

noooo you’re not Bonnie !

Sil

Bonnie – yeah this one is a really subtle taste. Creamy eggnog i get more from. Typically it’s why i’m happy when 90% of the blends are black teas haha

Bonnie

Thanks Ysaurella! Is it raining? You’ve had lot’s of rain recently according to my map.

Ysaurella

yes absolutely today it rained a lot and it’s so cold (2° C….yes I know it’s not cold for my Canadian Friends ;) but it is for Paris )

Sil

Ysaurella – 2 degress in france when it’s raining IS cold lol. There’s something about the rain that makes is feel colder.

It’s the darn dampness. Raining all day today, it may have hit 4 celcius. Brrrr

I’ll have to try this one next to IB’s version, which hopefully hasn’t been contaminated.

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.
