333 Tasting Notes
I bought this because I recall that I liked grape sencha from Den’s tea.
The smell is intense but I LOVE the smell of concord grapes. In fact I could just smell this tea and then daydream a bit and then smell it again.
The taste is light and less grape-y than I expected but I like it that way. It’s a nice and refreshing blend.
This is my first order from Butiki Teas. I’m always in a search for a perfect rose tea. This smells like a delicate mixture of rose and violet with a hint of jasmine.
It’s light and floral and tastes like Marzipan which is good thing as far as I’m concerned.
From all the new Zodiac Series Cancer and Capricorn are probably my favorite so far. With Capricorn I try to be careful not to overbrew it, then it has just the right amount of creamy goodness.
Some neat write up for Apothecary Green by Verdant Tea. I love old botanical prints; so cool.
Finally I got to taste the blend for my own sign. It’s a nice, a little bit smokey oolong with smooth peach flavor. Not bad!
Ordered some new stuff from Butiki Teas; I have never tried anything from them.
Tomorrow Verdant tea will be featured on http://moodsandappetites.com/
Somehow I got the steep time just right this time. It’s so creamy and smooth. I also have two petit macaroons with my tea. I’m having a 10 min vacation :)
It has an intense smell of dark chocolate with fruity undertones. It doesn’t taste so much like chocolate than just a rich, black tea. That’s a good thing if you don’t like your tea too sweet.
Ooh, so coconutty … Smooth and creamy goodness with subtle vanilla undertone. Rose petals look so lovely too.
I will not rate this because It is my signature blend.
It’s slightly sweet and nutty, the taste of the assam really comes through.
Over the weekend updated the labels for my 4 Seasons blends. “4 Seasons. Autumn” is probably on of two personal favorites of all of my blends including Zodiac.
The smell and taste reminds me of bubblegum. It’s fruity and slightly tart. Not bad but probably not my favorite.
Today my old Zodiac blends were deleted so they are no longer available. Wondering if it’s possible to delete them here as well.
This is the last bit left of this tea. I’m determined to explore more of pu erh which I often refer to as “dirt tea” :)
Broke my glass tea cup. Oh well, it was a $5 cup from a recycled glass, so it’s not a big deal.
