drank Peach HoppiTea by Butiki Teas
829 tasting notes

Made this iced in my DAVIDs mason jar (oh, how much I love all the DAVIDs teaware I own!)

Per directions I did about 4.5 tsp. leaf to the 25 oz. water with one tablespoon of sugar to sweeten. I probably could have done a tad more sugar because the hops are quite bitter. But not off putting bitter – I mean, I probably have 6 oz. left and I wouldn’t have gotten to that point if I didn’t like the taste.

The smell is still banana peach and boyfriend tasted it but said he couldn’t pick up on hops. As he is the beer drinker I’m deferring to him and assuming I don’t pick up on it either. What I do pick up on is a lovely iced tea that will herald the start of many iced teas as the weather has finally warmed up for good.

Just got to get through this pollen (ugh, tree pollen, my nemesis) and it’s smooth sailing into summer!

Sugar really dampens the hops, so that might be why your boyfriend couldn’t pick up on the hops. This particular hops has a strong grapefruit flavor. :)

I have come to the point (as of October 2014) where quality in tea is more important than quantity. Especially because I’m a seasonal tea drinker where hot tea is concerned, and a SLOW one to boot. I generally don’t resteep only because I’d be here all day if I did, though I do break out a gaiwan from time to time.

I adore French teas in practically every iteration, Japanese Sencha (specifically from the Uji region, as they offer the most seaweed flavor), and Dan Cong oolongs. I am trying to focus on plain teas and so companies like Verdant, Upton, and Butiki are on my favorites list.

When it comes to tea, I feel like the 10th Doctor says it best:

“Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses. "
