459 Tasting Notes


sometimes a good comfort tea is exactly what is needed. I feel like I should have ordered more of this, even though I have a bunch still. I will some day run out and I won’t have this. It’s a dessert kind of tea, but I love it for breakfast on Sunday morning.


Mmm, I love that one as well! May have to order a bit more before Butiki closes up shop…

I love rose teas. This one, not so much. Something in it just tasted wrong, really wrong. Other people may enjoy this. I did not.

Mine is actually the 2013 version, but whatever. I am too lazy to make a new entry. The description is the same.

I like this one. It’s just the right amount of fruity. The dry leaves are really pretty, just a few tips that add some really nice color.

Sometimes, I just need a good desserty kind of tea, and this was the one I picked today.

Such a good choice.

Thank you, Marzipan for the lovely sample of this tea.

I decided I wanted a black tea this afternoon. Maybe it would give me a little pep? I dunno. Not sure what I was thinking.

But I picked this one out of the bag of samples Marzi sent me.


The dry leaf smells soooooo sooooo yummy.

And after infusing? Even better.

This tea tastes outstanding. Rich and almost sweet. Delicious.

This is something I didn’t used to like in tea, but now I’ve come to truly appreciate, and perhaps even love.

Yum! I’ll put this on my What-Cha list. :D

I had this one last night before bed. When I placed my last Butiki order, I accidentally ordered this twice, without ever having tried it once. Fingers crossed that I like it.

Whew! I do!

Floral, sweet, incredibly buttery. Delicious.

I had this western style, and saved my leaves so I can have some more.

180 °F / 82 °C 3 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 15 OZ / 443 ML

What do you mean by “western style”?


In a big mug with a longer infusion time, as opposed to gongfu cha or similar, with a small amount of water but more leaves, for several short infusions.


This is a great one


It really is. Definitely very enjoyable.

This is the base of our new Raspberry Jam & Cashew Butter. :)


That just makes me want it all the more.

This is my first mug of tea for the day. Yes, after 9:30 at night.

I have some sort of stomach virus that has had me down for the count. It started yesterday, but I tried to ignore it. Apparently, that was not the right thing to do as it got a lot worse before basically knocking me flat on my ass last night after I lost dinner.

I’ve slept most of the day and I’m feeling a lot better.

So I decided to have some tea. I wanted something nice and easy drinking, a flavorful green since my sense of taste seems to be a little off. This was my choice.

Oh it’s good. I ordered a bunch of it off of the Beautiful Taiwan website, but I got last year’s harvest instead of this years, to save a little money. Did it make a difference in the tea? I don’t think so as this tastes incredible to me. It’s one of my favorite greens.

So I was supposed to mail out a bunch of teas today, but it didn’t happen. Probably not until Wednesday now because I don’t want to touch anything for other people with the way I have been feeling. Sorry for the delay everyone.


Oh no. I hate stomach bugs. Pls feel better soon


no worries! feel better soon!


Hopefully by today things are looking up for you, health-wise. Sending good thoughts your way!

This sample came from boychik

It’s nice and uncomplicated. Easy to drink.

And the cake is quite reasonably priced. I may buy one for myself.



I drank this one today :D


All credits go to Rich who discovered this tea. Thank you Rich!

I love a good oolong. This is a good oolong.

I’m not supposed to be at home today. I’m supposed to be freezing my tushy off at tailgate right now. Instead, last night while getting dinner ready, something tweaked in my back and I’ve been in pain since. Last night, I had to lay down to have any relief. Today, I’m sitting with a heating pad and it’s helping quite a bit, but I’m still hurting. Blah. I do all kinds of stuff that could hurt my back, lifting heavy weights and whatnot. I hurt my back chopping peppers for dinner.

So I’m curled up on the couch with my heating pad, getting some relief. It took a while until I was ready to get up and get some tea. I’m now drinking a nice mug of this one. Western style, because I don’t want to have to move any more than I have to right now.

Smooth, floral, maybe a little bit buttery. Tasty.

Aww, I hope you feel better soon. Something similar happened to my boyfriend – he tore his calf muscle randomly just walking to his car. The body is weird sometimes…


back pain sucks! feel better soon and stop lifting heavy weights ( i know you love to)


The heavy weight wasn’t my problem this time. Maybe I should stop cooking.


Hope it dissipates quickly, back pain is awful!


I’m doing a lot better now. Still achy, but not in pain.


Oy. That sucks! Hope you get back to normal soon! Back pain sucks!


I hate cooking. my kids are picky eaters and im not in a mood to cook different kind of meal.


Back is feeling much better today. yay!!!

I love cooking, but I rarely seem to have the time or energy to do it.

Still relatively new to drinking teas, or so I feel, even though I’ve been at it for several months now.

I’m drinking more and more of different varieties of tea.

It’s been a few months that I’ve been on here. I’ve expanded from greens and flavored teas to now I’m all about the oolongs and some unflavored blacks. I’m mostly drinking unflavored teas now, but there are a few of those flavored ones that have a special place in my heart.

Pu-erh is also something I’ve recently found that I enjoy.

I have four kitties and a spouse.
