Last night, I was asked by a friend to bring teas to my farm, for a house concert to celebrate my mom’s birthday. He is relatively new to tea and says his favorite tea is chai, which was slightly disappointing to me since I am not such a fan.

Anyway, I brought this because it smells amazing and has a very thick feel, and I thought he might appreciate it. He did, quite a lot, and so did another of the guests at the show. Yay!

Okay, so since I wasn’t very excited about this one the first time I tried it, I mixed it with Jasmint this time to try for a slightly less artificial flavor. The fake-y strawberry was toned down a bit, so that was nice.

I cold-brewed my leaves as well, and drank that this morning. Still way better cold, but nothing I’ll ever be ordering again.

I finished off my sample of this one today. It’s not bad, but it’s not for me. I am glad I had the chance to try it, though. And there are more than enough Butiki teas that are on my must-order list, it’s nice to have at least one that isn’t.

Courtney sent me a sample of this one the other day, and I had it after my lunch this afternoon.

Hot, it was fruity and refreshing, but it’s definitely not my favorite. I much prefer Lime Gelato. However, it got better as it cooled, so I’m going to try it cold later. It’s currently in a jar in my fridge. I’m expecting to prefer this one as an iced tea, I think.

Haha! Awesome review.

Okay… Steepster must have eaten my comment.

I was saying that I could elaborate on how minty and creamy and smooth and delicious this is, but I’m pretty sure I’ve already posted that, and this is really all that needs to be said. Yum.

This is a very warm and cozy cinnamon honeybush. I think if it wasn’t called ‘Cinnamon Roll’ with the promise of some kind of delightful baked-good flavor, I would have really enjoyed it.

As it is, I’m drinking it and wishing I could taste more than just woodsy cinnamon. It’s yummy, especially the second steep, but I definitely don’t taste anything ‘roll’-y about it.

Thanks for sending it my way, Stephanie! I am so glad I got to try more honeybush blends. :D

Yeah, it needs more vanilla baked good favor. Better than rooibos at least :)

jessiwrites

Yes, definitely! I should maybe try combining it with Vanilla Honeybush from Butiki…

Okay, so I feel pretty much the same way about this one that I do about Blueberry Crumble. Delicious cake-y flavor, but not so much fruit.

I don’t really care, though. I’m not that picky. It’s buttery and smooth and not too sweet, it’s a yummy tea.

Off to prepare a second steep!

Mmmmm, this is so good.

Creamy and lightly minty and just… delicious. I am SO looking forward to trying Graveyard Mist, because if this is good, I imagine GM will be amazing.

Hurry up, mail! Dammit!

Graveyard Mist IS amazing! It’s no secret around here that it’s my favorite tea.

drank S'mores Genmaicha by 52teas

I had this again last night, for the first time after leaving it out overnight in my closet. I don’t know if it made as much a difference for this one as it did for Marshmallow Treat, or if it’s just that I’m not a huge fan of the cacao nibs or something. I do enjoy drinking this one, though, but mostly because I love the roastiness of the genmaicha.

I definitely think I prefer honeybush to rooibos.

A couple weeks ago, I blended up my own Pina Colada tea – Coconut Oolong, Pineapple Oolong, and Buttered Rum. This has that same kind of flavor, but with an extra warm woodiness from the honeybush. It’s quite lovely!

Also, it’s caffeine-free… which my blend definitely was not. Hahaha! Thanks for sharing, Stephanie! This is yummy. I’m going to go have another cup.
