drank Raspberry Truffle by Butiki Teas
606 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!! :)

Another profile facelift! My tastes have changed a lot from when I first discovered loose leaf tea.

I can trace my tea journey back to October 2012, when I discovered DavidsTea. Before that, I had the occasional cup and enjoyed high tea at An Afternoon to Remember, which has since closed.

I went through a period of wanting to try all the teas, and was really into flavored teas, especially dessert blacks, but my tastes have substantially changed over time.

I still enjoy the occasional flavored black or rooibos, but I’m more into unflavored black teas right now and recently, puerh. Chinese black teas are amazing…with their notes of chocolate or sweet potato, who needs a flavored tea? I had a much steeper learning curve when it came to puerh. I used to dump out cups of puerh for tasting like leather. Now, I am really enjoying them. I think it took finding good quality puerh and steeping them gong fu style to really enjoy them.

I also, on occasion, enjoy a good oolong, white, or green tea.

Favorite tea companies right now include: Mandala, Teavivre, Butiki, Golden Moon, Lupicia, and DavidsTea (for teaware mostly).

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! :)
