drank Butterscotch Potion by Tealux
1314 tasting notes

Oh wow this is good. This is really good. Amazing even.
What a lovely surprise… as I was having a rather low/crappy day and this just made it so much better!!
I’m noticing an intense butterscotch note all through the sip and aftertaste, along with a slightly astringent white note. Also, it is very sweet, like eating a butterscotch candy. Seriously, I have that aftertaste lingering long after a sip. and now I’m sad that my mug is empty.
First infusion was beyond stellar. I’d rate it 95. Second was predictably weaker and less round in flavour so I’d go with 83… which leaves the true score somewhere in the middle! (since I can’t see a number as I move the slider).
There will be future orders of this. I am so in love, this potion has certainly worked it’s magic on me!

Yum. This is going on my list.

I’ll look for your review! :)

Sil

I can haz a try?

Indigobloom

Yezzzz of course! I think it may be a bit overly sweet for your tastes but only one way to find out :P
(it’s almost there for me, even out of those I add sugar to. Somehow my tolerance goes up with butterscotch and maple)

TheTeaFairy

Indigo, have you tried many teas from Tealux so far? I just lost it this afternoon and placed a crazy order with them. They allow sample purchases, their green and oolong selections drove me nuts, had such a hard time deciding!!

Indigobloom

Hmm, I think this is the second one I tried from them. But I have a bunch of other samples to go through. Btw the samples are pretty big. Enough for atleast 4 cups! Probably more like 6.

TheTeaFairy

Great, Thanks for letting me know :-)

Indigobloom

Enjoy! hope you didn’t get the Blueberry green one. That was nasty. though if you did, and love it, you can have mine LOL

TheTeaFairy

Thanks for the generous offer, but no I didn’t get that one, thankfully! it’s that bad? I have ordered a couple of flavoured ones, but mostly straight greens and oolongs… From the description, I have high hopes for them!

Indigobloom

It has something called Senna leaf in it, which is what I think threw me off. I’m excited to try the rest of my samples! :)

Kittenna

Ok, weirdest thing ever, I swear I had read a review you’d done of this tea comparing it to something else… and I disagreed and made a comment… but clearly I was wrong. I’m so confused haha.

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!
