drank Pumpkin Milkshake by Butiki Teas
4875 tasting notes

Justjames sent me this as well as his custom butiki blend as a thank you for the matcha i sent his way. This has been on my list to pick up from stacy for an eternity, but since i’ve been trying to sipdown my cupboard, i hadn’t picked it up yet. I brewed this up tonight because i was exausted and wanted something to just sit and enjoy. I’ve had two cups of this now – with a cup left over to try this again over the weekend because i kept it to normal people cups haha.

I’m not sure how i feel about this one. I don’t love darjeelings, so that might be something to do with it. It’s for sure, creamy and delicious but mostly it comes across as a vanilla tea to me. Not so much with the pumpkin. I’ll be drinking this again this weekend to see if i can figure it out. A tasty tea..but not quite “pumpkin” for me….though as i sit here i wonder if that’s because i always equate ’pumpkin" with pumpkin spice…. hmmmm

thanks justjames! this was a great end to my long day :)

i’ve been musing over this one too. creamy? check. spice? check. beloved pumpkin? wait….. maybe i should rebrew? i agree, might be me butting heads with the darjeeling. i won’t review until i’ve made up my mind and played with it some more. colder, hotter, longer, etc.

very glad it started your weekend though!!

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.
