Eggnog oh eggnog! you make me happy… (backlog)
Yup, this does remind me quite a bit of eggnog. Creamy and sweet, with just a hint of egg tart. It goes surprisingly well with a green base. That was certainly unexpected!
Now, I’m not the biggest fan of greens in general, so I would have preffered to see a black or oolong base. However, I think that the flavour and base were paired exceptionally well, and so I can’t possibly begrudge the fact that this is a green.
Next time, I think I’ll have it with 1/2tsp of sugar (first infusion). It’s awesome without, but I added some sugar to the second one and oh my goodness that was incredible, albeit a bit weaker. I can only imagine how super tasty it’d be on the first!

Sil

I need to try this!

Indigobloom

Let me know when we can get together and I’ll give you some! better do that soon though, not sure if this will be reblended after the holiday season and I think it’s repurchasing, though I probably won’t be able to…

Sil

yeah, stacy’s said all the holiday blends will remain as long as they’re selling. I’m going to be picking up the plum pudding and the 3 friends one for sure but id love to try this before i get around to placing that order in case i love it.

Indigobloom

oh good to know, I wasn’t aware of that. Just realized that I meant to say *worth repurchasing heh.
I have a sample of the Plum Pudding, I’d be happy to send it your way once I try it!

Butiki Teas

Yep, the holiday teas should be around for quite some time. They might get pulled for the summer season but that depends on sales. We still have 2 holiday teas that are being worked on (a little late, I know).

Sil

Stacy – never too late for super fun YAY teas from butitki. Besides, this gives everyone something to brighten up their january!

Butiki Teas

Thanks Sil! I would rather be a little late then sell something that I think can still be improved. So far that Praline Sweet Potato Pie is tasting pretty good. :)

Sil

i plan on doing my comparision on my tea today so i should also be able to get you my notes on that soooooon! (speaking of working on things)

Butiki Teas

Indigobloom

Bio

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

0-25
Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

25-50
You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
