drank Raspberry Truffle by Butiki Teas
473 tasting notes

It’s been like forever since I’ve posted. Life’s been busy. I was in Honolulu for work a week ago and when I got back, well, you know how things get backed up. By evening, I was too tired to write anything. I have, however, bought new tea, including Lupicia tea in Honolulu and I made a Butiki order! I think this is my third Butiki order since I’ve been on Steepster, and I am in heaven!! I finally got Hello Sweetie, which I had yesterday, and it’s awesome…will write a proper post later, but I also had this one this morning, and it’s also awesome!!! I think I was ignoring it before because it had chocolate, and chocolate teas have been hit or miss with me. I’m also not usually a fruity chocolate girl, but I have to say this tea changed my mind about that. This is delicious! The chocolate definitely comes through, and is a nice darker sort of chocolate, and the raspberry isn’t overpowering, but melds well with the chocolate. It reminds me of those yummy chocolates with raspberry jelly in the middle from Trader Joe’s. So good! And the resteep is just as good! I guess I should have tried this one a long time ago! I’ve missed out!! :)

Bio

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! :)
