drank Nutmeg Cream by Butiki Teas
597 tasting notes

Ummm…yum? Oh yeah, total yum, indeed!

This is the first tea from the Amoda Box I tried. I made two travel mugs worth of it the other morning…my DAVIDs kids tumbler from summer before last, and my Timolino. I sucked it down very fast at work. I was very sad when it was all gone.

I really noticed the cream as a mouthfeel, very thick and rich, and the blend of black teas were nutty and chocolatey with minimal astringency. The colour I got in my tumbler was like a brandy or cognac with light shining through. The spice of the nutmeg is well balanced as it neither overpowers the base, nor is is hidden in the complex base notes either.

I mentioned this to Stacy and a few others, but I have to say that I think I like this one better than Pumpkin Milkshake and Vanilla Frosted Carrot Cake. I’m hoping this one becomes permanent.

Also, drinking this tea totally makes me think of JustJames and his custom blend contest submission. It’s not exact, but it echoes some of what he had wanted in his blend.

this is the one i’m most excited about :)

Stacy needs to sell this on her site. Period.

Sil

Need to go to amoda Facebook page and start requesting it!

Amariel

Incendiare, did you get the box also? Have you tried it?

Sil, I also went to the page to say how much I like it.

Fjellrev

No, I didn’t get a box but it sounds like something I’d like. Let’s hope either Amoda or Butiki will carry it someday. Let’s be stupid not to. Easy money!

Amariel

Let’s hope so. I could be nice and save you some from this batch, but I really think Stacy will be makng this, or something quite similar. She really wants to, and Amoda is getting good feedback on it, so I think it will happen.

Fjellrev

Nah, don’t save me any since you don’t have much. I have a good feeling they’ll offer it again.

Amariel

Ok, good. More for ME! :P I feel like 98% there will be an offering of this or something very close.

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.
