1772 Tasting Notes
And another sipdown as I slowly inch back towards 200. Just four more to go!
(And then I can start working towards 150, and maybe even more from there?) At least I am getting closer to having staple teas that I need to keep around (along with an assortment of smaller .5-1oz samples to suit my varying moods!
Sadly, this tea is NOT tin-worthy. I think it’s the mint that throws this one off for me. The berries are good. The smoke is nice. But there’s just something about this doesn’t blow my mind. I would drink it occasionally, but I don’t think I’d grab more than an oz at a time!
OMG. This tea!
CrowKettle reviewed it earlier and that inspired me to have a cup. It truly is liquid fudge. Soft and creamy, and very chocolately. My 2yo smelled it across the room and pushed up against me with her nose snuffling trying to figure it out, and then tried to grab the cup so she could gulp it down. It had cooled a bit so I gave her some and she was very wowed. :)
I made room for this on my flavoured tea shelf so that it now has its very own tin bc I want to keep this around. (http://oi57.tinypic.com/2iid20x.jpg – also thanks Sil again for the surprise tins!!!)
It’s just so good. And so is North Winds. And the only difference are the vanilla beans right? And an extra $3 an oz? Hmmm…. Hmmmmmmmmm.
Whatever. I want to keep both around! Hahah.
I drank this first thing in the morning, and I’m enjoying the resteep of it now. It’s just so good. I’m tasting honeyed notes, and juicy fruits, and this tea is just so smooth and easy to drink. Even AFTER I sorta oversteeped this round by double what it should have been!
I worry sometimes about rating a tea to make sure that I know which ones to buy but really that’s a little dumb. I think anything I rate over 85 is guaranteed to make me happy and if I chose this tea over another TTC tea in an eventual order, it doesn’t mean I made the wrong choice. Not when they are ALL good choices. So, I’m just going to chill and focus on that.
Thank you Sil for sharing this one with me!
I’m really enjoying this as I sit in the office, blasiting this Angry Females playlist from 8tracks: http://8tracks.com/lifeofshi/angry-females-pump-up BOOM! Get stuff done!
So this tea is not roasty like I would have expected from ‘baked’ in the description. It’s green and fresh. Grassy? Also a little sweet. Yay! Thank you!
Yay. I managed another actual sipdown today – 212!
I tried this because Sil was interested in it and it made more sense to buy a ton of things and split them and try all the teas, then to try and decide WHICH Butiki teas to get. :P
It tastes very earthy, like a Puerh, like you would expect. I’m also getting Smoke and wood. Hmmmm. Interesting.
