6489 Tasting Notes
dexter also sent this one my way…and i guess if this tea is trying to live up to it’s potion, it worked since this tastes not so good. Albeit, it wasn’t a dump it down the drain tea…but the ingredients didn’t really blend harmoniously in this one. i think in part it’s also because i’m not overly a fan of intensly minty teas. i need there to be other things to really counter balance the mint. no matter what kind of mint it is. that being said, still glad to have tried it! :)
Final Count: 134 (9 more to go + whatever comes in this month)
dexter sent this one my way and i’m glad she did. I actually rather enjoyed this one and would consider picking up more of it in future if the opportunity presented itself. It’s more of a fall kinda tea for me though, given that it[‘s a blend of chai’s. However, unlike a lot of adagio teas, there is actually life in this tea rather than that same underlying “taste” that many adagio teas have. thanks dex!
after my failure with irish cream cheesecake, i pulled this one out to have a cup of. Keychange was awesome enough to send this my way which was great since i was out! I still really enjoy this cup of tea. It was one of the first taiwanese teas that i had and it remains one that i love. I didn’t manage to get through ALL my butiki teas today, but it was fun revisiting as many as i could to try them all out again. It also brings me one step closer to a few sipdowns, which means i can place another order soon! haha Lemon macaron and hello sweetie..you will be mine!
eep. i am not having luck with this one today. Brewed up a cup of this and it is bitter and not a happy time. I’ll have to give this another try and see if i can find that sweet spot, but so far this just isn’t working for me. Which makes me a little sad since the concept seems like something i should really enjoy.
mmmmm yep. For a white tea, this one is really tasty :) I drank the entire cup without realising it, which is a sure sign that it’s delicious! I’ll have to restock this one once i run out for those days when i want a lighter tea that is still refreshing, sweet and tasty. thanks for introducing this one to me Stacy!
I’m finding that this is not my favourite tea. When i first started drinking it, i loved it’s juicy notes and the way the flavours came together in a straight black cup of tea. Now, however, i’ve found similar teas that i like a bit better. that’s not to say that this is a bad cup of tea or it won’t find it’s way in to my cupboard from time to time, just that it’s not a staple. I can only have so many honey/juicy sort of blacks in my cupboard as i tend to prefer stronger, darker black teas. However, I do like visiting with this one now and then :)
