drank Creamy Eggnog by Butiki Teas
335 tasting notes

Ok, I retried Creamy Eggnog with a smaller mug, a larger amount of dry leaves and this is a little better to me.
I had a much more present flavour but not what I was expecting.
The funniest with this tea is it was difficult to catch the dry leaves with my teaspoon as if it didn’t want to be drank by me :D
So we may be incompatible :)

The flavour was still too subtle and the green tea base too light for my taste.
But this is my taste, I know a lot of people like this tea for what it is.
Every ingredient is of perfect quality, it is just not a tea for me.

I decided to rate it because, even if my opinion doesn’t reflect the majority, it may be useful for other people.
When I did my Butiki Order I was hesitating between a lot of teas (this tea brand is really fantastic, it’s just like being in a bakery hesitating between a Religieuse or a St Honoré – writing this a big welcome to the new Pope – we love religious names for our pastries in France!)
I choose this one because all the ratings, but absolutely all the ratings were very very high.
So it may be good to have different opinions sometimes, that’s why I give you mine.

An high quality tea but not unfortunately for my palate.

Well, Ysaurella, no one can say you didn’t try, that’s for sure :-)

:) I see your dilemma! BTW we are also very big on religious named sweets and cakes (nun´s bellies, abbot´ s puddings, bacon from heaven, oh) and lol the new pope is two cakes at once, a jesuita and argentino ;) (this makes more sense in a pastelaria!)

First, please forgive me for my English and all the grammatical mistakes you’ll find in my posts.
As English isn’t my mother tongue it sometimes makes things more difficult to express cleverly and accurately what I feel.

I was mainly in black flavoured teas, green as well if not bitter.
I’m now drinking much straight teas because my palate is now developed enough to appreciate them .

My favourite brands are : Mariage Frères,Theodor,Butiki Teas,Dammann Frères, Betjeman & Barton.
My ratings are as follow :

100 to 95 : my darlings; always in my cupboard

94 to 90 : Excellent tea, often in my cupboard

89 to 80 : very good tea, a pleasure to drink it

79 to 70: not bad even nice, why not having it sometimes, but well, not so urgent !

69 to 50 : Meh, deceptive or just not for me – but has some qualities

49 to 30 : I just don’t appreciate it

Under 30 : is this tea ?!?!?
