1140 Tasting Notes
Yeah. For some reason I had a craving for minty black tea. And wasabi almonds. I’m drinking this tea sample and eating wasabi almonds at the same time. It’s pretty awful, but both items on their own are good.
I think I could of wait and had each item separately, but I’ve been without tea today until 3:30pm – OMG! I needed tea now!
OMG STARFRUIT TEA! STARFRUIT TEA!
This tea is a light, fruit strawberry tea hot. I get a teeny bit of starfruit flavor. Sweetened and iced, the strawberry and papaya pops more – reminding me of candy!
However, I was hoping for more tangy flavor and stronger starfruit flavor. The white base was flat, losing the full potential of this tea.

Mmmm, love this tea!
Did a blog entry on it, http://oolongowl.wordpress.com/2013/02/18/flowery-pineapple-oolong-from-butiki-teas-tea-review/
I’m spending the day working on crochet stuff and watching more Boys Over Flowers. That show is total soap opera like and addicting! Perfect to watch tea to!
Mmmm pancake tea!
I’ve noticed I’ve been having this tea every time I make pancakes. This morning I did a full review with pics.. with pancakes! Whoo! pancakes!
My husband has been requesting french toast now instead of pancakes. I bet there’s a french toast tea out there somewhere, at least there better be!
This tea was a hit and miss for me. Sometimes it was not bad, other times the flavoring fell flat for me.
I sipped a small pot of this tea while I sewed up the loose end of my Star Blanket of Boring I crocheted. Then I drank the cold leftovers while I wrote up my blog entry on my crafty blog http://awkwardsoul.wordpress.com/2013/02/17/blanket-achievement-unlocked/
This last pot was meh. I got a bit of cherry taste, wishing there was more. I preferred this tea mixed with a little flavored matcha.
I did this last night and again today with good results
1 part loose chamomile
1 part loose peppermint
2 parts DavidsTea Creme Brulee
The result is a creamy, relaxing, caramelly, slightly minty tea!
And again, I’m chilling out, crocheting a blanket, watching Boys Over Flowers. Occasionally squealing “OPPA!” to my confused husband.
I freaking almost waited a year for this tea and it is finally back!
I could drown happily in this cup of pretty, buttery, floral, fruity and sweet sencha! The only thing I didn’t like about this tea was the resteeping, which was too astringent for my tastes.

This tea is delicious! I don’t drink alcohol, so I didn’t get most of the champagne elements – Actually, I dunno if I ever had champagne, I might of, but since I don’t like booze, it wasn’t memorable.
However, Champagne Rose is a really nice strawberry tangy candy tea. I will most likely buy more of this tea!
