drank Nutmeg Cream by Butiki Teas
1698 tasting notes

Ok, so it’s been long enough that it seems safe to drink these down and announce that they came from the Amoda box.

OMG. The smell of this is just divine. It’s like warmed eggnog. I could just sit here and smell this all afternoon…. /drools

And each sip I take is just that much better. Unlike the DAVIDsTEA’s I had earlier, this tea doesn’t hide the base. It respects it. It enhances it by sidling up to it and taking it slow.

The black base is complex and rich and dark. The nutmeg and cream are prominent and give the tea a thick mouthfeel. I just love this tea.

Too bad I’ve only got enough for 3 more cups.

They clearly need to remake this!

They might make it for Amoda if enough people tell Amoda there’s demand! But shipping from them is $10.

OMGsrsly

Shipping from Amoda is $10?! That seems a little excessive, seeing as their awesome boxes are about $2.

Cavocorax

I know, right? That’s what it was back when they sold the leftover teas. Now they just direct you to the blender if you want to buy more so maybe they’re switching their model again?

OMGsrsly

I sure hope so. Although, shipping from Butiki is quite expensive to Canada. I hope that Amoda will sell the tea in Canada so maybe we can save a bit on the shipping costs.

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)
