92 tasting notes

I love strawberry and rhubarb. It’s one of the only pies I like. I was delighted when Sil included this tea in with the other samples she sent me. I have been searching for a good strawberry tea that did not taste like Crystal Lite or chapstick and I think I have found it.

This was the most pleasant and natural tasting strawberry tea I have ever had. It tasted like a really ripe and juicy strawberry. I was also really surprised how much I loved the hibiscus in this one. It wasn’t overpowering at all and added a nice bite to it like rhubarb. I am also getting a bit of spice maybe cinnamon or clove. It’s bringing out a pie crust feel.

I think this may be the first strawberry tea that worked for me. I’m pretty picky when it comes to fruity teas but this was just perfect. I would buy pounds of this tea fairly comfortably without any guilt or panic. I will definitely be ordering a bunch of teas from Butiki because this one was just delicious.

Thanks to Sil for this sample.

Bio

Book blogger. Hockey fan. Reformed coffee drinker. Newly minted tea addict. I grammar police myself and no one else. Pu’er lover.

My favorite type of tea is pu’er. I can see myself living in a house alone with just pu’er cakes, a electric tea kettle, my trusty pu’er pick from Mandala and a thermos. I prefer ripe pu’er but love raw pu’er as well. My current favorite is the Special Dark from Mandala Tea.

Black Tea-I also love all forms of black tea. Black tea is where I started and I still love the malty loveliness of a good black tea. My current favorite is Grandpa’s Anytime Tea from Butiki.

Green Tea-Green tea is pretty hit and miss with me. I have never really developed a liking towards it. I have been dying to explore green tea more. Especially matcha and genmaicha. My current favorite is Autumn Harvest Laoshan Green from Verdant Tea.

Herbals/Mate-It depends on what’s in them. I gravitate more to herbs and spices rather than fruit flavors. My current favorite is Fired Up Fennel from Davids Tea.

I love mate (and guayusa). It helped me kick my coffee habit to one cup a day. I will try any blend with mate in it. My current favorite is Chocolate Rocket from Davids Tea.

White Tea-Sadly, I haven’t tried many white teas but I am planning on it very soon.

Oolong Tea-I have tried one or two oolong teas but in blends only. I am dying to try a straight oolong. My current favorite is Milk Oolong by Mandala Tea.

Rooibos-I love rooibos blends but they are very hit and miss with me. I love the woodiness of rooibos. My favorite is currently Oh Canada from Davids Tea.

Flavored Tea-I love flavored teas. I am willing to try just about any flavor combination and the weirder the better. My current favorite flavored tea is Laoshan Black Chocolate Genmaicha by Verdant Tea.

I am always searching for a tea with fig or chili in it.

My favorite tea companies-Mandala Tea (their Phatty Cake was my first ever “Oh My God” tea moment), Butiki Teas, Verdant Tea, and Davids Tea
