SIp down! I really enjoy this tea. The first steep was a chocolate/matly beverage of deliciousness. However, as with most teas of this nature I got distracted by the tea and forgot to take notes on my other steeps lol. Yeah…it’s that kind of evening!

Mmmm still digging the blueberry taste of this tea. I think it might be my favourite blueberry tea that I’ve tried so far.

drank Autumn Blend by The Tea Emporium
4942 tasting notes

Cold brewed this last night to see how that brought out the flavours or didn’t. I think I like this better as a cold brew though this wont be a restock when it’s done. There’s a taste that seems to run through most of the tea emporiums teas that I’m not a fan of – similar to adagio’s gross black base. Drinkable but not enjoyable. Cold brewing at least you can taste more of the notes they were going for with this blend so that’s nice.

I’ve never been a fan of their seasonal blends :(

Sil

IB – don’t think i’m a fan of most of their teas. TRying straight black of theirs to see if they can redeem themselves in my eyes.

drank Mocha Matcha by Red Leaf Tea

I think i figured out the trick to this matcha this morning. Add cheesecake matcha to it! Lol I discovered this morning that adding a bit of cheesecake matcha to the mocha matcha helps bring more creaminess to the mocha matcha and offset the strong coffee/chocolate taste. Totally digging this today :) go go morning matcha smoothie!

Babble

Iiinteresting. But I thought you liked the coffee taste.. Or is it too chocolatey?

Sil

Haha I do like teh coffee taste but its….I dunno I can’t explain it its coffee but yet not. Adding the cheesecake to it makes it much more coffee/mocha like. It’s almost like the milk I use doesn’t give it quite enough creamy :)

Babble

Is the mocha flavor more coffee or chocolate?

Sil

Rachel – I’d go with more chocolate than coffee. Was thinking of adding a bit of my cofee matcha to it next time as well heh.

Mmmmmm nice way to end the evening! Delicious cup of strawberry tea! Seeped this one for longer than I usually do and it just helped to bring out the strawberry flavours even more. Ill have to remember that for next time :)

drank Pumpkin Creme Brulee by Butiki Teas

Mmmm lot of cinnamon in this one so I’m going to have to play with it a bit more but I am digging this for fall. I’d like to try this as a latte too since I think the combination of teh spices would kick some ass.

One of these days I’d like to see Stacy do a caramel something sometif tea lol

Kinda of all over the place here….yes to this tea! It’s a good one :)

Babble

I got this in a swap and still need to try it – d’oh!

Butiki Teas

I do have some caramel ideas. We shall see. ;)

Sil

…and when you do stacy..you send it to me 10 days before you release it to anyone grin

Butiki Teas

Hahaha. That reminds me I need to do a little Canadian promotion at some point.

Sil

Stacy – for sure! That would be awesome but I’m a little biased lol

Butiki Teas

Canadians get shafted a lot on deals and contests so I was thinking doing something just for Canadians would be nice. Like maybe free shipping with $20 purchase or something. Still working it out.

Sil

Your shipping is already pretty reasonable :) free is always great! But I never feel bad paying your shipping rate 4$ is jokes :)

Helena

Oh a Canadian exclusive that would be cool :D This is a pretty good tea :D

Butiki Teas

Hmmmm, I get what you are saying. Any suggestions for a Canadian exclusive?

Sil

Helena….isn’t that kinda like the maple pecan oolong heh

Helena

speaking of maple someone should make a maple sweet potato tea that would be tasty. I don’t think many people realize how good maple and sweet potatoes can be :D

Apparently it’s a butiki kinda of day! Tried this one cold brewed over night last night and it is GREAT! I’m loving it cold – maybe even a bit more than hot though maybe not :)

Just really enjoy the flavours in this one. tasty tasty tangerine!

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.
