Terri sent this my way and i was surprised that i hadn’t yet tried this one from Stacy. I’m not sure that this would be on my top ten tea list from stacy, but it is a unique tea for sure, and one that i wouldn’ turn down if offered. that’s mostly because darjeelings tend to be hit or miss for me. I really like the strength of this tea and the maltiness….and the aroma. for whatever reason, the aroma of this one is just a happy time for m this morning. I’ve been sitting here inhaling the cup and smiling every time haha thanks terri!!

I haven’t tried this one specifically, but the more my tea palate expands and matures I have found that Sournenee is one of my favorite estates. They actually have a website for the estate that is apparently maintained by the estate, not a reseller, which is something I haven’t found much of when I just do searches on the estate names. Their store is somewhat frustrating as they seem to have products that I would like to try, but can’t see a way to put them in a cart and they don’t give a whole lot of detail – like I’m not sure what flush they are selling… :) But interesting nonetheless. And the overnight packages sound really cool. :)

No, I can add stuff. But if you look under Tea Chest/Specialty Teas, they have things there that are described as though they have them there at the estate, but there is no indication that they sell them through the site. Or at least I can’t find a product in the store that would correlate with the things in that Specialty area. Probably just my misunderstanding – they may be talking about specialty teas in general, not specifically things they produce.

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh

TeaBrat

oooh, I want to go stay there :)

Butiki Teas

Blarg, I’m not a big fan of estates doing that but oddly enough it doesn’t look like they are selling their Black Blossom, which we are about to add to our website.

Nicole

Oh, good! That’s the one I wished was in their store. Plus, I’d rather buy from somewhere that I’m not paying shipping directly from India. :) And again, I’d prefer a site that went into a bit more detail, like what season the tea is from.

Nicole

And I must have placed my order just a hair too soon! Ah, well. I’ll probably be out of something else soon enough and have to place another order! :)

Butiki Teas

Nicole-The one we are selling is 2nd flush from 2013. We were late to the game on that one. Initially, we were selling this version but once I tasted the Black Blossom, I decided that we needed to switch. So this tea isn’t being sold anymore but the Black Blossom will be.

Butiki Teas

Nicole-If you want to add some, let me know. I could price it out for you.

Sil – Glad you like it!!

Black blossom….mmmmm….

Butiki Teas

That website is pretty new. I always google tea estates and I know it wasn’t around last flush. The teas up for sale are almost certainly 2014 1st flush.

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.
