drank Butterbeer by 52teas
622 tasting notes

Not digging this as I had hoped. Boo. I am picking up a little flavour, but not that much, honestly…typical for my 52teas experience. I’ll probably finish this sample from sil, but I don’t think this is one that I can’t live without. Butterbeer from IOA/WWOHP on the other hand, is so lovely, and I wish I could have it on demand here. I am gonna try the Butterbeer Starbucks custom blend/secret menu option:

I wonder if it was old? Mine was bursting with flavor. I had to send some to my future son-in-law in Ireland and he was really wow’ed by how intense the flavor was.

Glad I didn’t bother ordering this one.

I generally like a lot of tea. I do find I have a preference for flavored over unflavoured, but I do love a good straight tea as well.

Likes are too hard, since there are a lot. Dislikes are easier, so here they are.

Hibiscus. Blech. I can tolerate a little, depending on the brew, like Berry Good from Davids and Ruby Pie from Butiki…but in general, it’s too tart and too strong for me.

Licorice. Anything that remotely resembles licorice is out too, so that includes fennel and anise. Yuck, yuck, yuck.

Florals. I’m cool with petals in the tea to make them look pretty, and I’m cool with teas like oolongs having a floral note, but strong florals can give me migraines. Rose and jasmine are the biggest offenders. This is one where it can vary on the blend, as I can handle Teavivre’s Peach Jasmine Dragon Pearl tea because there is very little jasmine actually detectable in it.

Rooibos is hit or miss. I can do some, but not others. I handle green better than red, and honeybush better than rooibos.

Um, I have an extensive wishlist. It is both a list of things I want to get again, and things I want to try. If you are sending me something, and you want to know which is which, I’ll tell you via PM.

My ratings don’t have a particular scale or method, and may on occasion contradict themselves, but I’m honestly not fussed about that. Sometimes I don’t even rate at all.

Uh, guess that’s it.
