i really like this tea. Sad to see it go, but i suspect that it’ll be back in my cupboard at the next chance i get. I am a fan! :)

drank Plum Brandy Cheesecake by Butiki Teas
5351 tasting notes

steepster is frustrating me again. Seems like every evening it starts running in to problems loading things and behaves all wonky. this was the case last night when i was trying to update my cupboard. tonight it’s still giving me grief….which doesn’t bode well for me when i know i’m going to be up all night.

this particular tea is really tasty. I’m for sure getting a better cheesecake/plum flavour balance than the irish cream one from a while back. the plum for me on this one is subtle and comes across after the cheesecake taste. delicious!

it’s so annoying :-/

It’s so slow tonight!

OMGsrsly

It’s not really working at all for me again. :/ If I try to like something, it reloads. I get errors. I’m just gonna drink my tea and read a book, I think.

drank Caramel Apple by Butiki Teas
5351 tasting notes

hmmmmm not sure how i feel about this one. It’s mostly just not appley enough for me. even though it’s an oolong, i DO enjoy this one a bunch, but it’s more caramel oolong to me than anything even sort of apple like…which is funny given some of the other reviews that mention no caramel :) Still enjoying it but may have to play with it a little and/or not drink it out of my crappy travel mugs haha

I’ve just had a sample.. But Yum! One day I will order some for my cupboard :)

Sil

black friday may be a good time for that. What i love is that it’s not a super expensive tea, and i haven’t yet found a way to really eff up brewing it…works well in travel mugs as well.

I tried this one from stacy today as well, mostly so that i could decide on whether or not i want more of the newer version of this one in my next order. At first glance this is much more hazelnut and butterscotch than it is mocha. I do love the white rhino base though…so sad i wasn’t able to get my first stupid package. I think this one needs to be tried out of a travel mug to be fully appreciated, so i reserve judgement until then :)

So…there’s a small part of me that wants to just log this and keep on moving because a) this is the first review and b) i don’t want any of you getting ideas before i get a chance to pick up more! lol I had a little mishap with the first package stacy sent me…read that as some postal worker somewhere has MY TEA! but the second one arrived safe and sound. This tea was totally worth the wait. It’s quite a unique tea, and one that was a great start tot my day today. I wholeheartedly agree with all of stacy’s comments on this one…honey, stone fruit, rye… just a really smooth, delicious tea. I’m really going to miss her straight Taiwanese teas :(

Nicole

I haven’t reviewed this one yet, but I agree. It’s really delicious.

drank Lime Gelato by DAVIDsTEA

i’ve been mia for a bit now…i’m still drinking tea but between work and conferences and getting ready for vacation, wedding planning, calling my parents, dealing with my parents lol i’m exausted. Came home this afternoon and had a 6 hrs nap…so much for going to work aaah well….i wanted something fruity tonight so this is what i pulled out. I’m almost done with this one – my special birthday tea from dexter :) I like having this one around, i just don’t drink it very quickly heh.

sundaysipping

I’m the same – I usually have this one stocked, but I don’t often reach for it. I think it has something to do with the fact that when I first tried it, I had so little on hand that if I drank it as frequently as I wanted to … I’d have been out in three days. :-)

Sil

i just prefer blacks to greens heh have to be in the mood for fruity :)

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.
