5075 Tasting Notes
Backlog and sipdown from the weekend. Had this over the weekend to remind myself of why i love this straight as well as in addition to other flavours in my morning smoothie. I’ve got a few packages in my cupboard, so this might be a technical sipdown but i for sure need to got through and see where i’m at so that i can place another order :)
Ok so i set this up to cold brew a few days ago to see if the cold version would be similar to lemon chiffon, since the hot brew is more lemon than anything to me. As it turns out? Cold brewing this makes it very much more like an earl grey…which means um NO thanks! I’m glad i tried anyway as the hot brew is pretty tasty.
SIPDOWN! Thanks to Indigobloom for this sample. I don’t think i would have otherwise picked this up on my own from verdant, but now that I’ve had it, i might consider keeping a small stock of this one around. I am digging the way the basil and mint blend together! Really glad i jumped at the chance to give this one a whirl :)
SIPDOWN! oh yeah baby! One of the first 52 teas i ordered and i’m finally finished the bag. While i thoroughly enjoyed this one, i find that i like the balance the strawberry pie gives to the cinnamon so that will likely be the staple in my cupboard instead of this one, though this is pretty darn delicious!
Sipdown! And thank you again to the lovely Hesper June for letting me try this one. Still not my favourite cup of tea but it does give me hope that I may enjoy some of the other blends that Whispering Pines tea company has to offer as i can sense the potential in the tea, even if this one seems all over the map resulting in a kind of boring tea. One more down..and technically one more to go to hit my goal for this weekend! woot woot!
…and i’m sad to say while this is the most wonderful smelling tea that i’ve ever smelled…i managed to go through pretty much the entire ounce without ever finding the tea to go with the smell. I’m not sure if this ounce was just a bad batch or what, but Kittenna had the same issues that I did when she borrowed a sample. It makes me sad as this is the first Butiki tea that i genuinely don’t like. (teas that aren’t to my taste don’t count, since those i can appreciate for what they are…this tea on the other hand is everything in a tea that i should love.)
I’m glad that others have found this enjoyable but there’s a bitterness to it that doesn’t equate with the deliciously amazing orange and chocolate smell. Even with a bit of sweetner or with milk it just wasn’t doing it for me.
Ah well, at least i tried…and there’s always creamy sweet wonderful amazing eggnog…right? :)
Farewell my dear green caramel! SIPDOWN! This was one of the first teas i ordered when i was exposed to so many different teas through steepster. I have to say over time it hasn’t lost it’s happy place with me. I still find it quite enjoyable, though there are many other teas out there that i prefer. So far though, in terms of green caramel teas – The Persimmon Tree is my go to.
