Another tea from today…and another tea that i’m very nearly done. On the upside i DO have LB genmaicha to get my through until my preorder of LB shows up. I can’t really complain since i have so many delicious teas at home, but i DO hate it when i don’t have this one in my cupboard lol still though, i have a feeling that in terms of this tea i prefer the later harvests…though i’ll make do with a spring harvest lol

Courtney

I agree. I drink this one so much, it is a staple I can’t be without.

whatshesaid

What would the flavour differences be between the harvests?

Sil

i suspect it will change year over year based on water/temps etc… but spring seemed to be a little less chocolatey last year than the fall harvest…that being said i still go through 6-20oz a year lol so it’s not that different for me…but others have cared/not liked the differences

Courtney

I did notice the difference when I ordered a new batch a while back, not realizing it was a different harvests, though I still loved them both.

whatshesaid

I guess those are the breaks when it’s a natural substance you’re dealing with….a certain degree of unpredictability!

I’m getting down to the last little bit of this one. Apparently i should have just ordered 100g but on the flip side, now when i order more it will be fresh? haha I haven’t even started the other two teas from Nina’s that i purchased at the same time. This has been a great tea to have at work today as i’ve been in meeting hell and my weekend will be filled with work from 10am sat to 5am sunday….UUUUUGH. ah well, i’ll bring some tea and maybe a board game to teach ppl lol

VariaTEA

drank Peppermint Patty by Butiki Teas
6406 tasting notes

last tea of the evening! (i so had a bath) . Getting down to the last few cups of this one, BUT that’s ok because there will be another order in July…at least lol. I still really like the fact that this is a herbal! it’s delicious, mint chocolate and it’s a herbal. I still haven’t found my perfect favourite mint chocolate BLACK tea…but this is almost enough to make me not care :)

Final Count: 146 (3 more weeks to get 31 teas down + 15 incoming in orders)

Courtney

Maybe I will have this one next.

Suziqzer

One I need to try so I can have my chocolate peppermint in the evenings. Going on my list as possible order/sample when I finally place an order w/them.

Courtney

I can always send a sample along Suziqzer. I have a bunch.

Suziqzer

I wasn’t expecting an offer of a sample, I should expect that here shouldn’t I? Lol… If you have some to spare, that would be great.. I’ve enjoyed the Butiki blends I’ve had a chance to try so far. Maybe I can send you something too? PM me and we can work out any details.

Cheri

Sil

this one came to me from jump62359 This is for sure a chestnut tea. I am not getting any of the lemon verbena from this – just your typical average adagio black base with a nut type flavour. it reminds me of most of their teas. However, that being said, it’s not a bad cup of tea. I wish i knew more about the fandom though as on this one, i’m relatively clueless lol thanks jump!

drank Doke Silver Needle by Butiki Teas
6406 tasting notes

Another sipdown tonight! I’m on a mini roll because i said eff it today and left work…before 5pm. So WIN for me! hence the reason i’m enjoying a few teas this evening before i pass out face down in a pile of my own tea stained drool. yeah, that’s right. Soooo exhausted and just need to go to bed. But we started Hannibal season 2 tonight…i’ve had some awesome tea and so there’s lots to smile about. says me. I’m trying to finish up a few more of my butiki teas because i’ve got another handful on their way lol. i have enjoyed this one a bunch, even though it’s not something that i’d ever typically reach for. It was fun to try and explore while i had it :)

shhhhhh…it’s all gone now. Drank up the last packet of this that i had tonight. Such a lovely tea – i’m so happy i got to try it and had friends to share theirs with me. I’ll keep my eyes peeled in case this or something like it ever comes back but for now, i’ll enjoy the memory of a seriously tasty cup of tea!

…and this is a sipdown. Well the rest of it is going in a box to terri. BUT it’s a small amount haha. It wasn’t as delicious or chocolatey this time around but i also wasn’t paying as much attention to it as i should have been. Work got out of hand today so i was distracted. Thanks you so much charlottezero for sending this my way. i am a fan!

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.
