Every spring I try to order Sencha Sakura. This year i chose Rishi and I do not regret it: the sweetness of Sencha mixes well with the subtle floral notes. It also helps that I have a brand new tea corner :http://www.pinterest.com/pin/50313720811653877/

drank Ruby Pie by Butiki Teas

This tea has the right balance of sweetness and tartness. It starts with a strawberry sweetness and the finish is slightly tart that pleasantly tingles your tongue. As the tea cools down the tart notes become more prominent. This blend has such a refreshing quality. I think it will make a super good iced tea in the summer. Right now I’m having it with a chocolate covered apricot from Mondel’s Chocolates http://www.mondelchocolates.com

drank Pu Erh Hazelberry by Adagio Teas

I have tried quite a lot of different pu erh teas but never a flavored one.
This one is pretty amazing. I regretted buying only a sample size as soon as I took the first sip. Rick, toasty hazelnut and berry undertones are in perfect balance. Other taste notes include brown sugar, cream and maple.

drank Pumpkin Milkshake by Butiki Teas

I have t admit I’m not too big on pumpkin flavor. However when I saw Lotus Stamens, Organic Pure Ground Vanilla Beans among the ingredients I was sold.

I can taste the pumpkin (not too much), cinnamon and vanilla. The darjeeling base seems perfect for the blend. Lovely, lovely seasonal blend.

Was exited to see my designs for Adagio Teas (wellness teas and kid friendly teas) finally in the store. My favorite design: “Monster Brew”. Monsters are so much cooler than princesses :)

drank Green Tea by Bigelow

This tasted like sawdust. Was it because it was stale or I’m used to more fancy tea. I’m not sure but this was not good.

drank Oriental Beauty by Butiki Teas

Easily my favorite oolong, this tea has a honeyed richness nothing short of ambrosia. The complexity of flavors actually made me think this was a blend at first.

drank Pistachio Ice Cream by Butiki Teas

It’s so true to its name that I was immediately transported to memories of eating pistachio gelato in Rome. The cream flavors make it decadent, like a dessert that’s not too heavy.

This is one of my favorite Butiki blends and one that I often drink after dinner. It has an incredibly light and clean taste, and smells like a combination of orchids and a warm summer breeze.

drank With Open Eyes by Butiki Teas

I’ve been drinking this a lot lately. This is a perfect summer tea – light yet so flavorful. Ginger explodes in your mouth without any bitterness and the smooth and sweet finish of strawberry complements it perfectly.
