It’s been a while eh?

Thanks are owed to Stacy who sent me this sample with my most recent Butiki order. I love how each sample brews one cup—there’s no fussing about with measurements and such, which is a relief for sure. I was eager to try this one, not only because of the rave reviews, but also because I’ve tried (and loved) sil’s two-friended version of this tea, and wanted to see how the two compared.

I have to say that I think I prefer sil’s blend with PTA as the base and no marshmallow. I actually couldn’t distinctly identify the marshmallow in this blend, but I also felt that depending on what temperature the water was, the flavours felt a bit overwhelmed by the base, which I didn’t find to be the case with the other blend. The other blend seemed to be a bit more “in your face” Terry’s chocolate orange, whereas this one seemed to be a bit more subtle. Still quite tasty, but if anyone wants to put together a mass request for the other blend, I’d be up for it (or down with it? ha) anytime.

Thanks again, Stacy!

Sipdown!

I loved this one.. Thanks to MissB’s sharing, it will be on my order when I finally place one with Butiki. I wouldn’t be opposed to trying the other version as well.. although I loved the idea of creaminess w/marshmallow I’m beginning to enjoy orange in tea and a little more wouldn’t bother me :)

Interesting! I will have to try the 2 version some time :)

Well, it’s been slightly over six months since I’ve joined steepster, and I can’t say enough wonderful things about this community. Like many of you, I began my foray into the world of loose-leaf tea by discovering David’s Tea, and although I’ve ventured out and have discovered many other companies that I’m extremely fond of, there are still many of David’s teas that I hold close to my heart and I will always appreciate it as a starting point for my journey.

As for my preferences, I tend to prefer bold black tea, flavoured and unflavoured alike, and I almost always take my blacks with cream and sugar. This isn’t to say that I don’t enjoy a good, flavoured white though, and I’m slowly making my way through the incredibly confusing world of oolongs and greens. I am also not a fan of rooibos, although I am starting to suspect green rooibos may be ok, but you know how it is: when you’ve decided you detest a certain ingredient, you’ll notice it everywhere—perhaps even where it doesn’t exist!

Things other than tea: I’m engaged to be married to my best friend, and feel like the richest woman on the planet because of it. I am also a veracious reader, and I also happen to have an obsession with fragrances, and have amassed quite a collection, although it pales in comparison to some collections out there! As a result of this obsession, I also follow several fragrance blogs, and am always up for a chat about scent. I’m also almost completely blind, and this does indeed mean that I come complete with a guide dog, who unlike me, hales from the sunny California campus of Guide dogs for the Blind. I think I’ve rambled on long enough, but if there’s anything you’d like to know or if you just feel like chatting to someone, please don’t hesitate to send me a message.
