drank Coconut Cream Pie by Butiki Teas
522 tasting notes

Even though I was taking a break from coconut teas (I was seriously coconutted out!), I decided to have this with one of the chocolate chip cookie bars I made tonight. Nice pairing, actually. It’s a nice sweet coconut, but not an overpowering coconut, which is good. :)

Ha, for me ‘coconutted out’ doesn’t exist for me. :D I absolultely positively love coconot. I put shredded coconut into my oatmeal this morning, and then later had a cup of Coconut Cream Pie tea from 52Teas. xD;

I’ve been tempted to try this one since it’s from Butiki, but I’m unsure about the rooibos of it all. Not sure if I’m really fond of rooibos or not yet.

Sounds delish!

The rooibos scared me away as well. Glad to hear it doesn’t over power.

Ya, I go back and forth on rooibos, but this one’s not bad.

I thought my profile needed a facelift, so here we go:

My obsession with tea really started around October 2012 when I discovered DavidsTea. Before that, I had the occasional cup and enjoyed going out to afternoon tea with my mom. I was really into An Afternoon to Remember’s creme brulee tea, since they had an afternoon tea place at that time, which has since closed…so sad and I haven’t found a good replacement.

So, I kinda went nuts when I discovered both DavidsTea and Lupicia in the SF mall, and I still frequent them, though my tastes have substantially changed over time from wanting to try all the teas to being a bit more particular.

Once I discovered steepster, literally by looking up reviews of a DavidsTea tea, I was hooked! So many tea companies I never heard of and everything sounding so delicious!

I found I still love dessert teas, like flavored black teas, but I also really enjoy oolong (both green and roasted). I occasionally enjoy flavored rooibos and white teas. I’ve had a rough time with puerh, and still think it tastes like leather. Recently, after having some really amazing teas from Teavivre, I can now say I love unflavored Chinese black teas and green teas.

Favorite tea companies right now include: Teavivre, Golden Moon, Butiki, Lupicia, and DavidsTea.

Just a note: I don’t rate my teas numerically because my iPad doesn’t like the scroll bar. Maybe someday that will change…hint hint, steepster! ;)

P.S. My profile picture is of one of my 2 cats, Holly, who is a little princess but very photogenic, and she loves boxes, including those that bring me tea! :)
