4026 Tasting Notes

drank Three Wishes Tea by DAVIDsTEA
4026 tasting notes

Thanks to the lovely Courtney for this sample. Yet another David’s tea that I haven’t tried so it was happy to receive it from her as a surprise :) once i read the ingredients I was a little wary but i’ll drink nearly anythin…at least once :) Not crazy about this one, though that’s to bee expected as floral teas and I are very hit and miss. Still though, not nearly as bad as i thought it might end up being. The floral is just a bit too much for me, even if there’s a peach? after taste that’s happening that i do enjoy.

Thank you so much for this new tea experience courtney!


I have a packet of this (I hope it’s sipdown-ready) sitting downstairs in my “drink me” pile! Didn’t like it the first time….

Work from home day! It may not amount to much in the way of sipdowns but it will let me sit and enjoy my new samples from steepster folks! Looking forward to it. Figured that I’d start the day out with a solid black that I really enjoy.

soooooo tired. I’m about ready for bed but wait, whta’s that? oh yes i’m on another meeting with China that makes it once again clear that they’re lost without me there. sigh not sure what the hell i’m going to do to move this project forward but let me tell you 10-midnight are NOT my best hours. nope. not at all.

Lala sent this my way in our swap. I don’t recall whether or not I asked for this one, but i’m always happy to try new teas! I was a little worried when i read that this had lavender in it, but surprisingly it’s not OMG IN YOUR FACE lavender. So that’s good. :) it wouldn’t be my first choice in a tea but overall it’s not too shabby.

Thanks Lala!

I tried this as a cold brew because of the smell. It smells like it would be a divine cold brew! Instead what i got was a fantastic smelling amazing citrusy that tastes a little like your average every day tea….cold. ah well it’s not bad, but man it smells amazing in comparison to the actual brew.

Iced 8 min or more

sipdown! This has been in my cupboard for a bit and i keep forgetting about it, mostly because i’m not sure how i feel about “instant tea.” Overall though, this isn’t half bad. It reminds me of how i used to think red rose orange pekoe tasted with milk. Only now that tastes horrible and this doesn’t. if that makes any sense. lol Thanks to Azzrian for sending this to me waaaay back when i was just starting out with this whole tea thing lol


That made 100% sense to me, even though it really shouldn’t! :P

mmmm not too shabby a blend though i think i still prefer the majesteas version. Still haven’t bothered with a side by side comparison yet. someday soon though as this one is almost all done. almost. not quite. darn it!

SIPDOWN! Oh yeah baby! 155 and it’s only tuesday! I still have until saturday to see if i can hustle my ass down to 150 hahaha. I’ve got some tricks up my sleeve to help with this so here’s hoping. Of course i’m also contemplating another order too but you know..what the hell haha

love this one, now i just need to decide whether i want to keep it around all year or savour it and bring it back to my cupboard in the fall. decisions, decisions…

Woot for sipdowns!


Good job – just flying through them!

drank Creamy Eggnog by Butiki Teas
4026 tasting notes

oh man soooo tired today. I think i’m going to be gulping down even more tea and possibly a coffee if this keeps up. I can’t seem to get going today and the day is nearly half over! I’m glad to be having some of this today since i have 2 packages of this in my cupboard. It’s for sure a tea that I can see drinking throughout the year as it’s not really “eggnog” to me, rather it’s just a delicious creamy tea. It’s a lighter tea as well, as is cantaloupe and cream but still a delicious “desserty” tea that I can get behind.


One of my favs!

I’m also dragging today, on account of 2 really busy days & staying up til 2am working on my taxes (got through the income part…now the itemization begins…ughghg)

Butiki Teas

Ugh Terri, I feel you. I haven’t even written down one expense item for the entire year yet. Its going to be a long week of sorting through credit cards. I’ve already done sales for the year, since I report quarterly and pretty much have to but those pesky expenses get me every time. So much for having a finance degree, I should know better.

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.
