drank Raspberry Truffle by Butiki Teas
1641 tasting notes

I think I’ve only got one cup left: sadness. This tea is just so great and it’s grown on me. The baby is super grumpy and won’t sleep and she wore me down. Now I’m drinking this to recover and it was the elixir I needed.

It always seems like I get less cups than the package would suggest, but it doesn’t help that I drink 10oz cups and usually have to add a little extra.

At the very latest, I will have placed a new Butiki order by Black Friday.
(Gosh, I’m so sleepy that I almost called it Black November)

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 15 sec

I want to place my butiki order so badly..but I’ve been able to hold off because she hasn’t put the new teas up. It’s looking like it’ll be over 90 without adding anything from anyone else lol

Cavocorax

Haha. That is definitely creeping up there! I could easily spend 40 – the hard part would be not going above that!

Butiki Teas

Sil, you’re gonna want to hold off until July 25th anyways.

Sil

Aaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh! Ok Stacy…. Is it the 25th yet? :) I think I’m raiding the piggy bank then if my overtime doesn’t equate to a decent amount. Man I’m so excited now…oh crap…I might be out of town that day. Hmmmmm ok. Things to remember lol

Butiki Teas

Sil-Just so you don’t get too excited that is not the Taiwanese Wild Mountain Black date. It is my birthday though and on my birthday I like to be generous.

OMGsrsly

Mine is about $90, mostly because I have 2 oz of all the stuff I really like on the list. And maybe more of the caramel vanilla assam. :)

Sil

Haha it’s my birthday today!

Butiki Teas

Happy Birthday Sil!!! :) Got any special plans for the day?

OMGsrsly

Profile

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
