Sip down! Final verdict on this tea is that I am a fan. Maybe not enough to restock as a permanent member of my collection, but something I would for sure stock off and on. Thanks again shmiracles for letting me try this one!

Sip down! Last of this cup from Terri….enjoying a bunch of my single cup servings to get them out of my cupboard before I reorganize this weekend :). Enjoy this even though its slightly weak in terms of the strength of flavour. But it’s still really tasty!

drank Caramel Vanilla Assam by Butiki Teas
4942 tasting notes

You know when you’re sure there’s a sip down and then evethough you drink giant mugs of tea, there just isn’t enough to actually sip down? So now I have enough left for a single “normal” cup of this tea. I’m ok with that as there is a large butiki order planned in my near future. It’s actually part of the reason I’m trying to figure out which teas I’m very nearly done with to sipthem down and make room for them to come back OR be replaced with other butiki teas.

This one is very nearly always going to be a restock. I love the blending of the caramel, vanilla and Assam. Stacy pretty much rocks my world, even the blends I don’t love as much are always expertly crafted and have their merits :)

It’s hard to decide what to order from Butiki, isn’t it?
I got this one in my new order. I’m not a fan of blacks, but this gets such good reviews I decided to try it. Maybe I’ll take the plunge this morning.

Sil

Infused – some of Stacy’s black teas are amazing even for my friends who don’t like black teas.

I love this one. Undecided if I like it more than the regular Taiwanese Assam or not so I keep ordering both. :P

Sil

I actually like the straight black better but since every day I bring a straight tea and a flavoured to work in my travel mugs, this works well having it around haha

infused1

I tried it an hour ago, and am afraid I’m not a fan. Maybe I need to sweeten it? I’ll try again, but I think it’s going to be a case of “It’s not you, it’s me…”

Sil

Not every tea is a win for everyone haha which is a good thing :)

Terri HarpLady

infused, if you tend to sweeten, I would because that will really bring out the caramel & vanilla. I like this straight, but I also like it sweet. Just saying :)

drank Assam #1 by thepuriTea
4942 tasting notes

Sip down! No way I’m going in to work on 3 hours of sleep…so maybe, just maybe I can catch up on some of my single cups that have been inviting to be had.

So final verdict on this Assam? It’s not the variety I really enjoy. It’s not a bad cup but its the wrong kind of fruity and it borders on being a little bitter/astringent even steeped at a lower temperature and brew time. I’m glad I tried it, but I’m not sad I’ve finished it up :)

Cavocorax

Oh, boo! Guess I better stop complaining about the baby getting me up so early because I can usually nap later on…

drank Cotton Candy Black Tea by 52teas

SIPDOWN!(216) I have been sorely neglecting drinking anything besides the 2 mugs i manage to bring to work…that’s how stupid insane things have been. But i’m home before 8pm tonight…and i don’t have to start working on things again until about 11pm. so i have a bit of time to have a few cups of tea tonight. And figure out if i can find a way to try work from home tomorrow so that i get a jump start on my tea drinking for the weekend…i have a bunch of 1 cup teas to finish off!

Another tea to stave off the crazies of the day! I picked this one because i haven’t had it in a while and i’m 100% hoarding this one. It might be one of my favourite chocolate teas because it’s so very much like good belgian mousse au chocolat! if only i could obtain more…

QueenOfTarts

I hate it when you find a beyond delicious tea and it’s either really expensive or only available in another country! This one sounds so good!

Nxtdoor

Want. I wonder how much shipping is. Maybe I wait till I go to (Eastern) Europe in December.

Sil

nxtdoor…i’d check and see if it’s available…my parents had a bit of a time trying to find it while they were in france. Here’s hoping MF will come out with another like this…

drank Premium Taiwanese Assam by Butiki Teas

I figured given the way the last past couple of days have gone, i might as well do it right by starting my day with a cup of awesome! I always find myself hoarding this tea and then when i try it, want to drink it all down immediately. This really is a fantastic assam that i’m so happy to have tried.

i just need one thing to go right today…. 7.5 hour workday topped off with another 7-9 hours of over time. No lunch, system issues, finally home hoping to have a little downtime to get food and drink in me…no mail…too late in the day to have tea since i’ve been sleeping poorly and don’t want to risk it…all my verdant points are gone (40,000+)….email out to team, hope they can resolve this…

yep it’s that kind of day. at least i had this tea 12 hours ago to start the day? forgot how delicious it was…need to pick up more.

Dinosara

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.
