drank Creamy Eggnog by Butiki Teas

another backlog from yesterday!

Every now and then i just really want this tea. Stacy was out of it for a while so i’ve been hoarding it. Now that everything’s back up and in stock i feel justified in drinking it when i really want it. And last night was one of those nights! :)

backlogging from yesterday – had this while out visiting friends. I’ve been hording it a bit but that’s going to stop since i have every intention of ordering more with a larger order in July. so HA! I really love the way that stacy has blended the flavours on this one. paired with one of my favourite black teas from her and we have a winner. :)

SIPDOWN! made a latte of this one before leaving the house this afternoon. I really like how the strawberry and champagne mix together to make it feel like i really am drinking a creamy champagne. I suspect this would have been pretty good with just water but i couldn’t bring myself to make it that way today. Thanks again Azzrian for this great combination!

mmmmm so it’s fairly late in the day and i really need to get moving. All i really want to do today is sit around the house drinking tea and watching tv but we promised to go hang out with friends. I’ll have to pack some tea to take along with me so that i get at least a couple more cups in. I enjoy this one from butiki though it will likely be one of the teas that rotates through my cupboard rather than being a staple. It’s got some interesting notes to it that i enjoy.

drank Mango by Harney & Sons
5948 tasting notes

thank you fiddling for this sample! I am a fan of mangos so i am always interested in trying out mango teas. There’s a bit of floral-ness to this tea which had me a bit wary but the mango taste of this one far outpowers the subtle floral notes. As this cools it becomes even more deliciously mango-y. I think this might warrant a try at a cold brew just to see how it fares. Or maybe this is hot brew, cool down worthy lol either way, thank you fiddling!

Sipdown! I might actually have a few less teas in my cupboard than i thought since i did a quick glance at some of the samples that i apparently didn’t take out of my cupboard yet though they’re gone. That makes me happy since i might very well be able to get to 235 this weekend, which even when i get my teas from my friend this weekend, will still leave me with enough time to get to 200 before the end of june…i think. I haven’t yet run out of smaller sizes so i think it’s manageable haha.

This tea is one that i shared with cavo and the last bit i have i’ve set aside for Terri. I suppose it’s cheating a little but i can do what i want! haha This is a very mild tea. It’s a very smooth – i like my teas a little bolder but this is a nice every day sort of tea, more of an afternoon tea than a morning one.

Sil

drank Peppermint Patty by Butiki Teas
5948 tasting notes

backlog from yesterday as well – had this as an end to a nice evening with friends. It appears that somewhere along the way i also hit 1900 tasting notes. heh what fun! I really enjoy this one from stacy as a mint tea. though my chocolate chips don’t always melt, i like the way the mint, marshmallow and peppermint blend in this one. I have a few herbal tisanes with mint in them for the evenings but this is for sure one of my favourites. :)

Way to be on 1900! I also can’t wait to get this one to come in the mail.

backlogging from yesterday

Still not a fan of this one. Guess that means the “extra” package i have will have to be traded off at some point. No matter how i seem to change the brewing parameters it always tastes astringent and not very creamcheesy, baked good like or really blueberry like.

Fjellrev

Weird, have you tried a second steep? I get more cream cheese and pastry then. And I only let it steep for like two minutes, maaaybe a little longer.

drank Coffee Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
5948 tasting notes

backlogging from yesterday as we had friends over after work and i had no time to myself to relax! I had this in smoothie form yesterday with a splash of vanilla matcha and chocolate matcha and it was delicious! I think coffee/mocha smoothies are my favourite these days because of the creamy way in which the milk blends with the flavouring. It’s better than a frappacino :)

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.
