Still battling the garlic monster. For some reason creamy citrus guayusa sounded like it might fight it reasonably enough. Something about the brightness of the citrusy and the leafiness of the guayusa.

I bought some more of this tea with my last Butiki order because I have definitely enjoyed the guayusas I’ve had from them, and this is probably my favorite. The flavors go very well together and today this seems particularly spring-y to me. Perhaps its the leafy/grassy flavor of the guayusa.

Tangent unrelated to this tea: Can I just say how much I love Steepster, even if the site itself is occasionally wonky? Sometimes I get bored and go trawl through other tea communities like /r/tea and teachat, and always it makes me appreciate the community, forum, and setup of Steepster. Don’t ever disappear, Steepster!

I’ve been doing some trolling myself and there really is nothing that compares to Steepster.

lol I just went to /r/tea and promptly closed it because it’s all “look what I bought” wow stuff in a box, how fascinating.

Profile

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: I’m in LOVE with these teas.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Tasty teas that I enjoy, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but wouldn’t seek out. They don’t quite do it for me in one aspect or another; often just not quite my style
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
