1217 Tasting Notes
I watched way too much Korean dramas yesterday – I got hooked on the show “Faith” and I think I watched 4 or 5 episodes. Since I vegged out the entire day, I feel drained today.
This tea kinda is like a green tea, with a little lotus seed and walnuts steeped up. I would love a bit more nutty flavor, but this tea is nice as a twist to regular green tea. If you like nutty teas and want something a little different, give this one a try!

Mmm, this tea is solid! I’m thinking I’m going to do another SteepCity order soon! Very impressed with their teas!
I’ve been drinking this one for 2 days while watching korean dramas.
Coconut grove is very sweet and coconutty! The taste is like big fresh, slippery slabs of coconut over top juicy sweet fruity white tea. The white tea is very flavorful and sweet. The floral is light here.
Coconut Grove gives me the impression of something sophisticated classic, with a bit of romance – but with a bit of modern hip from the coconut flavoring. If you like coconut and sweeter teas, you’ll love this one!

Actually a really bad sipdown. I still have a cough and it seemed to pick up today. Maybe the dry weather? I decided to put some fresh grated ginger and honey with this tea. EW. EWW. And I gotta finish it as I’m pooped from jiu jitsu and don’t wanna steep up another tea.
I really need to buy more caffeine free tea. I got maybe a couple left.
Doh, I’ve been busy with family stuff, so I’m falling behind in my tea logging. However, I’m crazy enough to write my blog posts in advance.
Watermelon xylophone blog love! http://oolongowl.wordpress.com/2013/01/27/watermelon-xylophone-from-butiki-teas-tea-review/
My roommate that I’ve introduced to tea loves this tea now! He is a watermelon freak and considers half a large watermelon a snack. he resteeped this tea so many times after I went to bed, I’m not sure how well it turned out.
Having tried many of The Persimmon Tree’s teas – they have a couple that are more centered around the tea, with light flavoring accenting the tea – White Peach is one of them. If you enjoy a good white peony/bai my dan, this is up your alley.
Iced, however, White Peach is a monster of flavor – peachy, lightly floral and sweet. I can see this tea being a staple for me in the summer, very yummy!

Arggg! I love this tea, and like DavidsTea Banana Oolong – I got to the bottom of my bag of tea, steeped it up and I got a pot full of stevia!
wahhh! Really sucks as I highly recommend this tea for blueberry lovers – I loved Blueberry Jam, bought it a few times. It’s really blueberry and delicious. End of the bag? Not so much. It’s just overly sweet, funky stevia mouth sensation and a pour out. Sigh.
Mmm, I made this into bubble tea!
Double strength, poured over milk, ice and honey. I also boiled up some tapioca pearls I got from the locate asian supermarket. Super yum! Caramelly, sweet and a little coffee taste!
So happy too as I know this is way less calories than actual bubble tea! I’m just lacking a wide straw. Sigh.
