Kitty tastings…..Mmmmm! Sorry, I’m in a weird little/kitty kind of mood right now, if that weirds you out you can stop reading and it won’t hurted my feefees! (Feelings.)
I ordered from Butiki last…Thursday/Friday I believe and got my package today, (Stacy said there was a delay with one of the teas, otherwise it would of been sent out earlier.) I chose this tea 1st because it smelled so sweet and nice and I adore pistachios! And I looooooooooooove! Pistachio Ice cream! (My favorite is by Ciao Bella, they also make a terrific Blood Orange Sorbet and the PassionFruit is equally good.) And have been known to eat a whole bag of pistachios in one afternoon, (even with having to shell them….I much prefer to get the shelled, although that makes it even easier to overeat. )
Anyways….I like reading reviews of a new tea when I’m drinking it, to see if I have the same/similar impressions. With this tea I am happy to say that with the 10-15 reviews I’ve read I agree with most of them:
Grassy (But in a good way this time!) Creamy (Not overly so. More like a hint.) Nutty. (Not sure if I would of figured Pistachios if this was a blind tasting.) Sweet. Doesn’t have an ice cream taste to me, though I’ve yet to have a tea where that is successfully translated and it might be something that is to complex of a taste for me. Shrugs That’s ok.
Going to try a resteeping, even though I want to try the others…giggles I am not much of a resteeper though I totally get the appeal.
At this time, I am not sure if I would get this again despite my liking it quite a bit. And I think I would say that even if I had a much better income, had an apartment/house of my own and a new car. (Stuff gotta save up for.)
Resteep: It’s an ok resteep, but like I’ve mentioned before I am probably not resteeping right. It’s still nutty and sweet but no cream. If I had half and half around the house I would pour just a tiny bit in, just to see how it rolls. Maybe I should buy some when I go shopping either tonight or tomorow. Heh.
