Thanks for the sample Stacy! this is supertastic tasty :D
Pineapple, creamy goodness, cilantro and white tea. Oh my that is beyond heaven. At my friend’s place so can’t write much more.
I think I am in love.

CHAroma

Cilantro?! Ack!

Sil

Looking forward to trying this one

Azzrian

WHAT??? I want!

Sil

Azz – it’s the custom blend that IB had made. :)

BoxerMama

D: WANT!!!

Butiki Teas

Hmmm, maybe I should consider making this one. We will see. This was done for a special art project that I was working on but ended up losing out to another tea that is even better than this one. I had to borrow some of Indigobloom’s cilantro that I had special ordered for her mango blend and I figured I would send her the rest of this as a way of thanking her for letting me use the cilantro.

Sil

oopsy lol thanks for the correct Stacy…totally blanked that this wasn’t mango silly-antro

Sil

it sounds delicious… hint hint

mpierce87

Wow, this one sounds pretty intriguing.

Butiki Teas

Sil-Haha, well maybe. We will see. We do have a pineapple blend already but nothing with cilantro.

Sil

cough stacy…your current pineapple is also an oolong grin course i’m not sure what this one is..but you know how me and oolongs are :)

Kittenna

I want to try this too!

Indigobloom

Wow comment explosion! This is awesome hah
My sample is very generous but I’m not sure there is enough for everyone!

Indigobloom

oh and Sil, I believe it is a white blend

Butiki Teas

It is a white tea. We used the same Organic Bai Mu Dan base that is in our Cantaloupe & Cream. This one is hitting our website in the next few hours.

Sil

i’m waiting stacy… not that i’m allowed to get more tea yet..but i can pre=order for when you send my strawberry rhubarb lol!

Kittenna

Actually Sil, if you are ordering this, instead of me picking up a whole bag, would you be cool with either splitting it with me, or giving me a sample? I do suspect I’ll like it, and I’m dying to try it, but I really don’t need more tea!

Butiki Teas

Hahaha, Sil. Well, I just finished pricing it, so not I’m just coding it and it will be up pretty shortly. Probably within an hour.

Butiki Teas

er, I meant “now” not “not”.

Butiki Teas

Profile

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!
