drank Purple Sunset Oolong by Butiki Teas
4738 tasting notes

oh man, i do love this tea. Every time i have this, i’m super happy and thankful that i gave this one a try. I really like that Stacy is often able to find teas that i wouldn’t normally love and make me love them. This oolong is full of delicious fruity tastes! I’ve had a few resteeps now and every one is as bit as tasty as the first. this needs to be in my cupboard all the time! :)

Several resteeps? Man you must be loving it!
Sounds like a nice relaxing Sunday.

Sil

for an oolong…this one is awesome! haha

I totally meant to resteep my LB Chocolate Genmaicha and I dumped my leaves bc I assumed it was an adagio one I’d tried. :(

drank Rhubarb Vanilla Ale by Butiki Teas
4738 tasting notes

Giving this one another try. Today it’s more Vanilla Ale than rhubarb…though the rhubarb is present in that sort of tangy presence. I am having this one unsweetened today and it’s going quite nicely with my banana bread heh. I’m not sure if this would find a permanent place in my cupboard as there are so many other flavours that i like better. I think i’d rather drink my ale cold than hot, if that makes sense haha. However, I am really enjoying this one, so it may need to rotate in occasionally :)

drank The Killer’s Vanilla by Butiki Teas

I’m pretty sure that as my tastes have evolved, i have ceased to really enjoy Guayusa Tea. it’s just not for me. I don’t need the caffeine boost and the taste just never seems to be what i want. This one came to me from Kallieboo! and i’m glad to have the chance to try this one again. If nothing else, to help me realise that there are other types of tea that i’d rather be drinking. That being said, i finished off the cup, but don’t feel the need to pick up more. Thanks Kallieboo!

Butiki Teas

Hmmmmm, why is this sounding like a challenge to me?

Sil

hahahaha

The guayusa I did for my friend actually worked really well. It was espresso chocolate cupcake with strawberry cream (had a touch of vanilla too). Espresso works super well with guayusa. Also, I don’t want to mention the flavor just yet but we are working on a really refreshing guayusa. New challenge, must make a guayusa that anti-guayusa people enjoy.

Sil

oh god that sounds delicious…

Butiki Teas

It was very tasty. :)

I really want to get this one. Because of Amon Tobin connection, if nothing else :)

drank Irish Breakfast by Butiki Teas
4738 tasting notes

i am dragging today. Last night we were up way too late and then i was up way too early this morning. I’m so not a night owl…so if i am up past midnight my body generally revolts the next day. I decided hat today is going to be a butiki day because i have a bunch of teas from stacy that i haven’t yet had a chance to have more than a cup from, and i’m looking at placing another order in the near future…so i need to know what i want more of besides “everything” :)

Second round of having both of these today and i’m at a loss for which i like more. Both have slight differences in their taste but not overly so.

Butiki day sounds delightful.

drank Malty Irish Breakfast by Butiki Teas

i can’t decide if i like malty irish breakfast more or irish breakfast…after having another two cups of these ones again, i really want them both. Neither or them is too incredibly strong and both have a delicious taste to them.

Marzipan

I have this one on order!

drank Campfire Blend by Verdant Tea
4738 tasting notes

This was my last tea from yesterday. I cannot even tell you how satisfying yesterday was. We finally got to play Brass again – still one of our favourite games that we don’t get to play often. We played a few others, had some pizza and relaxed and then we were all pretty pooped and ready to go home…at like 10pm. But then someone said “rockband?” and before you knew it…we were 4 hours later going home hahaha good times were had by all. This was my “travelling home” tea and may, i love it. This was another one of verdant teas that i picked up 4oz of back in December and am down to my last ounce or so… the only reason it’s not done is because during the day i tend to reach for vanilla spice first as i like it just a little better heh

Final Count: 139

drank Black Pearl by Mandala Tea
4738 tasting notes

One cup left of this. Thankfully i saved my leaves from yesterdays cup of this and will be able to drink a few more steeps of this today, thus saving the last cup for a no good very bad day in which i need a pick me up. Seriously…if anyone out there has these and doesn’t want theirs….my house welcomes them lol

The name of this one makes me think of Johnny Depp.

drank Golden Monkey Black Tea by Teavivre
4738 tasting notes

more teas from yesterday! This one gets better and better every time i have it. While it’s totally nothing like LB from verdant, i feel like if i could no longer have LB…this one might be a suitable substitute (note the use of the word substitute, not replacement). Bumping the rating a little because this malty chocolatey tea has been great to drink recently as i work on getting through my bag of this (it’s one of my oldest teas because i always forget about it!)

drank BeerButter Tea by Custom-Adagio Teas
4738 tasting notes

another from yesterday and the lovely dexter This one was pretty close to teas a creamy caramel, vanilla cup though sadly that isn’t butterbeer to me, AND since i’ve recently had both tea G’s cream tea and caramel tea, this one feel short. It was still a nice enough cup to drink, but i’d reach for Tea G’s first :)

drank Draught of Peace by Custom-Adagio Teas
4738 tasting notes

time to catch up on yesterdays teas! We went out last night to a friends for board games and didn’t get home until about 6 hours ago, so i had no time for tea notes :) Dexter sent this one to me as a surprise with a few other of the potions teas from Adagio. This one is labelled as apricot, cream and vanilla. Sadly, i was getting mostly a peach sort of flavour, which is most assuredly NOT apricot. All that being said though, it was a nice cup of peach vanilla tea, and while i’ve been “off” of most peach teas lately, this one didn’t trigger any “omg no no no no no peach!” feelings from me this round :) Thanks dexter!

Marzipan

Of course, tabletop day!

Sil

Funnily enough, we hadn’t even thought of that…but yes it occurred to us afterwards haha

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.
