1774 Tasting Notes
Sipdown – 178!
And my spreadhsheet is up to date so I can see how many teas I actually have. Sil was right – I more than douled my collection. :D Thanks!
This tea was nice. I’m happy that I could taste yunnan-ish honeyed notes, as well as dark puerh without knowing exactly what to expect. It was good but not essential.
I’m still logging teas from the giant bag Sil gave me (with samples from several other people, and a few surprise ones I got this week). It’s a nice way to spend the day, as I take a break from Korean Dramas.
Fated to Love You was so amazing though, you guys. It’s on Canadian Netflix and the main characters are awesome, even though the guy seems like a bit of a dick sometimes. I didn’t realise how tragic a romantic comedy could get though. (clutches tea close to her for comfort…)
I feel so stuffed up and sinusy, so this was a good choice. I wouldn’t mind being headless right now if it meant I felt better. :P The mint in this does help me feel like my head is clearing though.
This is still a good tea that makes me happy.
Y’know, I’m not even sure WHY I bought this one. I’m not big on roses, and chocolate in tea doesn’t generally work.
I guess I’m a sucker? I went in for Yogi Berry and grabbed this and 2 others that I hadn’t planned on!
But I have no regrets actually! It smelled weaker than I liked, but it’s actually quite flavorful! The carob is a nice tough, and while it is definitely floral, it’s not in your face perfumy about it. The only complaint? I’m not really getting much bergamot in there? I guess it’s hidden under the rose?
Oh, but the rose is becoming more prominent as the tea cools. It’s still enjoyable though. And it’s satisfying my sugar craving which is really the #1 reason to drink this.
Thanks Bonny and Sil for sending this one over to me!
We’ve got ppl over but I’m sorta ignoring them bc they’re drinking and shouting loud opinions at each other, and I’m quiet and can’t get their attention and I have tea to log.
This is a nice floral-ish tea with some interesting notes. The bergamot is really mild and the vanilla is quite soothing. It’s actually quite relaxing.
Thank you! :D
I’m going to reset the rating on this tea bc I don’t want it to bring the reviews down for everyone else. It didn’t work for me, but I think it’s the raspberry/cocoa flavouring or combination. I never could enjoy Butiki’s Raspberry Truffle and lots of people thought that was fantastic so I’m certain the problem is with me.
This tea is hitting all the right spots for me today. It’s lightly malty and very fruity with a touch of sweetness and some depth. It’s almost like a raisin bread (but only subtly). It looks like it’s no longer in stock, but I’ll have to keep my eyes open for new lots! I remember that if you bought $25 worth of samples, they’d ship it from China for free and that was a pretty good deal (for AMAZING tea).
Delicious! I seem to be a fan of Wild Mountain Teas. I also snagged an oz from Butiki while I had the chance!
