Terri HarpLady

First tea from early this morning. I seriously need to go through my Butiki teas more often instead of always hoarding them like they’re never going to be available! I love this tea in the morning and today it was perfect for what turned in to a rainy soggy mess :)

Terri HarpLady

I drank this with breakfast yesterday, & it was totally perfect. I forgot to log it!

drank Skele-Gro by Custom-Adagio Teas

dexter also sent this one my way…and i guess if this tea is trying to live up to it’s potion, it worked since this tastes not so good. Albeit, it wasn’t a dump it down the drain tea…but the ingredients didn’t really blend harmoniously in this one. i think in part it’s also because i’m not overly a fan of intensly minty teas. i need there to be other things to really counter balance the mint. no matter what kind of mint it is. that being said, still glad to have tried it! :)

Final Count: 134 (9 more to go + whatever comes in this month)

Courtney

HP love.

drank Polyjuice by Custom-Adagio Teas

dexter sent this one my way and i’m glad she did. I actually rather enjoyed this one and would consider picking up more of it in future if the opportunity presented itself. It’s more of a fall kinda tea for me though, given that it[‘s a blend of chai’s. However, unlike a lot of adagio teas, there is actually life in this tea rather than that same underlying “taste” that many adagio teas have. thanks dex!

drank Premium Taiwanese Assam by Butiki Teas
4729 tasting notes

after my failure with irish cream cheesecake, i pulled this one out to have a cup of. Keychange was awesome enough to send this my way which was great since i was out! I still really enjoy this cup of tea. It was one of the first taiwanese teas that i had and it remains one that i love. I didn’t manage to get through ALL my butiki teas today, but it was fun revisiting as many as i could to try them all out again. It also brings me one step closer to a few sipdowns, which means i can place another order soon! haha Lemon macaron and hello sweetie..you will be mine!

drank Irish Cream Cheesecake by Butiki Teas
4729 tasting notes

eep. i am not having luck with this one today. Brewed up a cup of this and it is bitter and not a happy time. I’ll have to give this another try and see if i can find that sweet spot, but so far this just isn’t working for me. Which makes me a little sad since the concept seems like something i should really enjoy.

Butiki Teas

Yeah, this one didn’t go over too well which is why we pulled it to use a different base tea since I think the flavoring is pretty spot on.

Kaylee

Stacy, you’re considering the Organic Huangshan Mao Feng, right? right? Pretty please?

Butiki Teas

Kaylee-Unfortunately, we aren’t considering using the OHMF. Since we have the Creamy Eggnog, it would probably be too competitive. We are considering a white and an oolong option though.

drank Doke Silver Needle by Butiki Teas
4729 tasting notes

mmmmm yep. For a white tea, this one is really tasty :) I drank the entire cup without realising it, which is a sure sign that it’s delicious! I’ll have to restock this one once i run out for those days when i want a lighter tea that is still refreshing, sweet and tasty. thanks for introducing this one to me Stacy!

Amariel

I had this tonight as well. Was a sipdown. Two steeps. Yum.

drank Pumpkin Milkshake 2.0 by Butiki Teas
4729 tasting notes

another butiki cup for the day! While i like this one, i prefer pumpkin creme brule. This one is a little finicky and i can see why sometimes it may come across as bitter to some. I haven’t yet had that problem – my cups have been creamy and tasty, but i just like the creme brulee pumpkin better :)

Amariel

I like the brulee better too, but only slightly.

drank Mi Xian Black by Butiki Teas
4729 tasting notes

I’m finding that this is not my favourite tea. When i first started drinking it, i loved it’s juicy notes and the way the flavours came together in a straight black cup of tea. Now, however, i’ve found similar teas that i like a bit better. that’s not to say that this is a bad cup of tea or it won’t find it’s way in to my cupboard from time to time, just that it’s not a staple. I can only have so many honey/juicy sort of blacks in my cupboard as i tend to prefer stronger, darker black teas. However, I do like visiting with this one now and then :)

Courtney

I had a falling out with this tea sadly. At least I still have PTA and TWMB. :)

drank White Rhino by Butiki Teas

see, now this is a tea i need more of. I haven’t had any in ages and now i’m wondering why not! haha I can see this one occupying a permanent home in my cupboard simply because of it’s uniqueness. These are the sorts of teas i’m glad that Stacy finds so that i am introduced to them :)

CharlotteZero

I swear this note said “-1 comments”…Will this one bring it to 0? That would be fitting…

Courtney

Haha I deleted mine, whoops. :P

Sil

i see how that is courtney…didn’t want ppl to know that you’re in love with this tea..

Terri HarpLady

I read courtney’s comment a few minutes ago :)

Courtney

Haha! I think my notes make my love of this tea clear. :P

Amariel

This is one I’d really like to try. It looks very intriguing, and after my good success with Doke Silver Needle, I’m up for some White Rhino.

Sil

you brew this one like a black tea :)

Amariel

Really? Intriguing!

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.
