114 Tasting Notes
This reminds me of Davids Tea Blueberry Jam but with one important difference… No added sweetener!! yum!! Thanks to Inkling for sharing this in a recent swap.. There are some serious blueberry notes in this tea!! I’ll be picking some of this up as my go to blueberry tea when I’m finally (if ever) off my tea buying slowdown!

I almost didn’t try this tea because it sounded a little too out of my comfort zone.. I mean spinach chive tea… Don’t you mean soup?? Anyway in the end I decided to give it a go, what’s a TTB for if its not to get you tasting something you wouldn’t usually pick for yourself?? And I’m so glad that I did! This was actually very tasty… With a slight punch of citrus and a savory flavor dominated by chives this is definitely something I would buy!

I must try out more ROT! This is very enjoyable, assuming you like bananas and let’s face it, why would you be sipping a tea called banana cuppa chocolate unless you liked bananas??? This would make a good after dinner treat or maybe something to drink in bed with a book on a cold night… The banana and chocolate are well balanced, neither overpowers the other and most importantly the banana doesn’t taste overly artificial… Yum!!

Another 5 am conference call means another tasty tea picked from the tea box to help keep my eyelids open and my brain functioning – darn international time zones!!
This is another tasty non overpowering rose tea selection from the TTB only this time there is a pop of peachiness which is a really nice touch to help make this tea stand out from the many rose teas I seem to have inadvertently sampled recently. Another winner for my taste buds!

This tea is a tasty surprise!! I tend to find 52Teas a little temperamental, you usually need to really baby them within very specific steeping perimeters to get the full taste effect with them which I usually just don’t have the patience for. My new Breville tea makers has definitely helped me to enjoy my stash of 52Teas a little more as now I don’t have to worry about over/under steeping or my water temperature.
Brewed at 212 and steeped for 3 minutes this tea has some serious wild strawberry, cinnamon and crusty pastry notes! The strawberry is a little artificial tasting and I couldn’t drink more than one cup of this at a time but its a nice late morning / afternoon treat without the caffeine hit!
Oh how I am going to miss Butiki Teas!!! Stacy is a blending genius!! On first steep the tea is deliciously flavorful, lots of sweet, molasses and caramel notes with a good punch of malt. The second steep is milder on the sweetness which really allows the nutty flavors to shine through, I specifically get almond and a touch of woodiness. Very tasty tea that stands up well to milk if thats your thing.
