drank Cider Guayusa by Butiki Teas
357 tasting notes

I love all Stacy’s Guayusa blends, but this one may be my new favorite. It’s seriously delicious. Tastes just like apple cider. I think I’ll play with it a bit… mix it with the super spicy one and then throw in some fresh ginger. I love ginger apple cider. Yum.

I ALMOST steeped this up tonight!

I love the guayusa blends, but I learned the hard way to not drink them at night. The caffeine doesn’t jack me up or anything, but definitely keeps me way too alert to fall asleep. I’ve read it’s good for drinking at night to be more in control of your dreams, but it just made me wide awake.

Bio

I love tea. And I love beer. I spent my twenties thoroughly enjoying all that beer has to offer but now that I’m into my thirties and a stay at home mom of 2 little kids and 1 big kid, I spend more time enjoying tea.

I joined steepster in Feb 2013 and it’s crazy how much my tastes have changed since joining. Before, I liked cream and honey in all teas and loved mostly dessert blacks. Now I almost rarely drink them, but enjoy them from time to time. What I love more than anything are straight rich black teas, Fujian, Laoshan, Rizhao, etc… I also love pretty much any black tea that the little leaf hoppers have gotten their teeth on.

I’m still not too into the green/white/oolong varieties. I keep trying to but my tastes are evolving pretty slowly on that front.

Overall, I just enjoy tea. Something about it that just settles me.
