drank Baked Ali Shan by Butiki Teas
5049 tasting notes

Stacy sent along a sample of this one for me to try :)

this is an oolong, which is not usually my faouvite, so bear that in mind. This particular oolong is halfway between a green oolong and what i call a roasty oolong. :) there’s a efeling of “green” to this one but it’s not over powering, while on the other hand there is also a more bread/nut like taste? it’s also got a bit of a juicy feel to it, though not like say a dragonwell :) Ont the whole, this was quite nice, though i’d rather see it in a blend than drink it all by itself :) Worth checking out for those of you that like oolongs!

drank Strawberry Meringue by Cornelia Bean
5049 tasting notes

another from VariaTEA this one was also a miss for me, but not as badly as the previous one. There’s almost like a vague memory of strawberry here, and i’m not sure i’d pin point anything as “meringue” A fairly uneventuful cup of tea for me, but again, i dDO like trying teas! so thank you Variatea!

VariaTEA

I didn’t have high hopes for most of the teas I shared but I shared them because you had not had them before. Nonetheless, I am sorry they aren’t more enjoyable. This one in particular may have been better if Cornelia Bean added more than just two meringue pieces to the whole 50g bag.

Sil

haha i never mind… you never know what surprises you might find :) regardless i always appreciate the share!

Another tea from variaTEA to be honest this one was a miss for me. It just tasted like a bland black tea with some sort of vague flavouring. I didn’t really get maple or strawberry out of this one :( oh well, another tea of the list of ALL THE TEAS!

drank Fujian Beauty by Tealux
5049 tasting notes

dexter sent this one my way with her mini brithday package for me so i figured i’d give it a whirl asap since it’s a small one to drink up and i wanted a few straight teas this morning before i get in to some of my other samples.

This tea is delicious! It’s god a good heft to it – thick and malty while also having a sweetness to it. i am a fan! I may need to add this to my eventual tealux order if i ever get my cupboard under control. No spending this month!

Dexter

I think this is a solid Fujian black tea – and considering it’s only 3.00/25g and you can quite often get 20% off that, it’s really economical. Great tea that is cheap enough to drink every day. Happy that you enjoyed it. :))

Sil

oooh good to know!

drank Honey Black Tea by Green Terrace Teas
5049 tasting notes

thank you again for the generous sample green terrace tea! I need to try the other samples you sent soon (aiming for this weekend!). I am still a fan of this tea, though it may not be my favourite honey black tea. I like that there almost seems to be a hint of something in the background of this tea beyond the sweet honey taste. Maybe it’s plum? either way, this was a great cup to start my morning off :)

Yay for limited edition teas! I’m actually surprised there aren’t more reviews of this one, though maybe everyone’s just hoping it will last until the sale on Friday.

1st off – this is a REALLY pretty tea. i really like it. 2nd – this is a coconut tea (typically not my favourite but i want to try ALL of stacy’s teas!).

Stacy’s facebook comment mentions that “This tea uses a Bai Mu Dan base. The predominant flavors are coconut, 2 types of vanilla, and banana but rose, cake, tangerine, lemon, and cream flavors were also added.”

What do i taste? Coconut and…vanilla..and fruitiness, that i would call citrusy, but i’m not sure i could place the actual lemon and tangerine. For those that dislike floral teas, i would say that even with the rose in it, it’s not a floral tea. This is more like a coconut, creamy tea with pops of citrus….at least that’s what i’m getting tonight…but i’ve got a more to play with and and i’m a little curious how this would take cold brewing :)

Final Count: 142 – 9 days left to get to 95!

Kaylee

Ha! I am in fact waiting for the sale!

Suziqzer

Sounds delish! I like coconut rum with orange juice and splash of sprite so I guess you could say I’m a fan of coconut & citrus together. Sounds like this would be solar flavors in tea form with a touch of vanilla.. Yum! I could see it cold steeped & drinking it out by the pool. :)

Have you had the Lemon French Macaron? If so, which one do you like better? :3

Butiki Teas

I am also surprised that there aren’t many reviews. We have sold a lot of it but I’m wondering if people aren’t sure what to make of it yet or maybe just not a lot of Steepster people made purchases.

Sil

Cameron – lemon macaron, but that’s because I adore lemon….love it. And coconut is not my favourite, thorough Stacy’s done this really well. :) her and lupicia tend to be the only two companies where I don’t hate the coconut flavour.

Stephanie

OH I totally forgot about this one! Thanks for the reminder and review, Sil.

Amariel

I really want to try this. It’s on the list to try with the order I am planning right now.

drank Victoria Beach by Cornelia Bean

drink drink drink…. cold brew of this tonight because it’s HOT like SUPER HOT! like UGH hot…trying to make sure to have at least one cold brew in the fridge at all times for days like these. However, not much to say about this one because it’s just sort of a generic cold brew…not tasting like anything specific but also not tasting bad. sooooo yeah :)

drank Red Queen Cupcake by Butiki Teas
5049 tasting notes

stupid computer crashing, losing my post! let’s talk about this tea and how it smells AMAZING and how the chocolate and the strawberry and the espresso like flavours just work. I’m not sure if this will be one of my long term favorites from stacy but if you like dessert teas, this one should be on your list to try. Unless you hate chocolate and strawberries lol

VariaTEA

I am glad you liked this one. It will be added to my order.

Kaylee

Add just a touch of sugar. It will be even more amazing.

Sil

Kaylee – next time! Hahaha

Stephanie

So good….so so good.

Cavocorax

I’m gonna have to grab an oz of I think… I can’t wait to see what the sales are.

VariaTEA

We should all talk before Friday.

Terri HarpLady

“unless you hate chocolate & strawberries…”

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.
