21 Tasting Notes
Stacy, thank you for the sample!
It’s 80 some degrees in Michigan right now at 8:00 in the morning, summer has officially arrived! To celebrate, I wanted to start my morning off with a summery tea. I decided to try the Pineapple Oolong sample that came with my Butiki order.
The aroma has a nice hint of pineapple with some floral notes. The combination of the pineapple and orchid is simply delightful in this tea. I don’t even usually care for fruity or floral teas! I love the bit of pineapple flavor that is left on my tongue after sipping. I might be crazy but the combination of flavors is giving me an almost peachy after taste. It’s light and fun, the perfect summer tea.
I stopped into Whole Foods, needing a quick tea fix. I’ve been out for the past several week. No need to worry, I just placed an order at Butiki Teas. This tea was on sale so I decided to give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised! The tea has a green tea base with notes of citrus and licorice. It’s light and refreshing, I approve! It is a bagged tea so the flavor isn’t as full as I would like but regardless this is a good tea.
One of my favorite things in the world is sitting on the couch with my two year old in my lap, drinking tea together in the mornings.Lately we’ve been drinking this tea because we are out of black loose leaf. We both enjoy it, not my favorite tea but it has a nice warm flavor. I steep it for about 5-7 minutes, the spices aren’t as strong as I would like but they do the job!
I agree with Michelle on this one, I can’t possibly the match the eloquent description that Brenden has provided. Every time I drink this tea, I imagine myself walking in a Michigan forest at dawn. I drank five cups of the Sleeping Bear Blend this morning, and I’m still unable to find the right words to describe this one. I love how light this tea is, especially mixed with the faint hints of pine needles. It does have a buttery flavor to it, which I’m normally not a huge fan of, but it works in this tea. This is definitely one of my favorite green teas.
