2855 Tasting Notes

This is SO GOOD!
I could sit around drinking this forever.
It’s so very rich, with a chocolatey fruitiness that is YUM!
I haven’t been drinking much in the way of oolongs or puerhs, as my taste buds weren’t working, the water in florida sucks, & I wasn’t really feeling very good anyway.
THAT’s OVER!
Even though I’m still congested, I can taste & smell enough now to totally appreciate my more nuanced teas, such as this one.
I don’t yet have a favorite wuyi oolong, but there are several contenders here, & this is definitely one of them!

Haha. I love it!
If I wasn’t totally addicted to Doodle Or Die, I would try reviewing teas in Haiku, but maybe another day.

First cup of the day, one more cup to celebrate Stacy’s birthday, & even though the contest is over, one more Haiku as well:

Lonely lion walks
along the elephant road
golden in the sun.

Life is bittersweet

I love your haikus! :)

Terri HarpLady

Thanks Stacy!
So…does the sale end at midnight tonight?
I only ask because I’m headed out the door to play a gig & still haven’t completed my order… I don’t want to miss out!

Butiki Teas

It does end at midnight, but no worries if you are a little late. We make some exceptions for long standing customers.

Terri HarpLady

That’s because you’re awesome!

We hope they have fish.

I’ve decided to drink Butiki teas all day to honor our lovely & beloved Stacy’s birthday! Here’s another Haiku:

Haha, I was going to have a Butiki tea day too! Except… all my infusers were full and needing to be re-steeped. Perhaps tomorrow.

I was digging around for something with some immune support, & realized I still had enough of this for one last cup. I’ve enjoyed this tea, with it’s healing properties & earthiness. I need some lung support right now, & it offers that, along with an interesting flavor that I enjoy.
And it’s a sipdown!

Yum!
I deserve a tasty treat today, & this was it! This is a pleasantly malty & chocolatey cup.
I split up a 3oz bag of this to share with friends, along with the rest of our order, & these things will all be headed to Canada, along with some other goodies that arrived today from TastyBrew, hopefully tomorrow.

Sil

Yaaaaaayyyyyyy!!!!!!!

Cavocorax

Woohoo! I better add these to my massive spreadsheet so I know what’s coming. :D

Terri HarpLady

If there’s anything either of you want me to include let me know. Cavo, as I recall I was maybe suppose to send you some red dragon pearls? Or mandala’s black dragon pearls? Or was it both?

Cavocorax

I can’t remember which, but I’d be interested in either or both of you have enough. Just enough for a cup would do! And I sent.the Zen Tea Dragon Pearls to you about a week ago. :D

Sil

Oh god I wanna be back with my tea!

Garret

I love this tea and so it makes me very happy that you are enjoying it, as well. Whenever I drink it, I am transported right back to the mountain this tea is grown on. So beautiful there!!!

Profile

Bio

I’m so excited to have found this community! I’m a self-employed Harpist (acoustic & electric – Originals, Classical, Rock, Jazz, etc) & Singer/Songwriter. My days & nights revolve around teaching at home, playing gigs, gardening,& fixing awesome food to eat. My schedule is different everyday, but I just go with the flow, & I sip a lot of tea!

My love of Tea began with Herbals back in the 70’s. One of my favorites was a licorice blend from House of Hezekiah, an old tea shop in Kansas City. There was also a tea with mint, rose petals, chamomile, etc called Nuclear Casual Tea.
In the 80’s I gave up caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, (& a few illicit substances…), and brewed medicinal blends & tinctures to support 4 pregnancies (all children born at home). In the 90’s my love affair with green teas began when I discovered ‘The Republic of Tea’. Their beautiful teas & packaging inspired my original song, “TeaMind”, from my CD “Zen Breakfast”. If you’d like to hear the song for free, drop by my website.

In general, I drink my teas straight, but occasionally I add a pinch of Stevia & maybe some coconut or almond milk (I’m allergic to dairy, gluten, & various other things & avoid most sweets.)

I’ve explored a variety of teas:
Whites tend to be a little bland…sorry
Oolongs – wonderfully sensual
Roobios – I’m not a fan in general
Puehr – a fairly new direction for me
I’m not a huge fan of flavored teas, but I do make exceptions, & I’ll try just about anything once.

And Black Tea, Oh how I love thee!!
I am on a quest for the most wonderful breakfast cup! I will find you, my Love!
