I was prepared today and brought a tea strainer and some teas to try to work. I only managed to drink this one but I’m glad I did! The leaves of this tea are great, nice long green tea leaves with large pieces of lemongrass. It’s a mellow flavor and a little spicy from the ginger root, almost savory in flavor.

This one smelled like pickles to me! Luckily it didn’t really taste like them. :P I’m glad you enjoyed it.

This is an interesting one. I don’t think I’ve had a minty black tea before. I like the mix of the keemun smokiness with the brightness of the mint. It’s ingredients include elderberries and lemongrass but I don’t get any of those flavors in my cup.

This reminds me a lot of their Red Velvet Cake with a heavy after taste of cherry. It smells really delicious, my husband even wanted a sip. It has a much better smell than taste. I’ll finish it but I wish it had more black tea flavor.

Finally a winner for me today! This is a very subtle tea. It’s very lightly sweet with a hint of almond and orange. I quite enjoyed it. This would be a great tea while reading a light summer read :)

My husband wanted to try this tea so I gave it a sip. This tea tastes like fall. It’s basically just honeybush with spices. I don’t really get any pumpkin brownie flavors. There’s no chocolate or pumpkin to it.

I’m just not having luck with tea today. Maybe my taste buds are broken. I’ve been really enjoying white teas lately but this one was more vegetal than I expected. Reminded me more of a green tea than a white.

I definitely felt like this one was somewhere between a green and a white tea, too. :)

Good then maybe my tastebuds aren’t broken :)

I was really excited to try this one to compare to the perfect blend blueberry pancakes from DavidsTea that I recently received.

This one is much more subtle with a heavier black tea background. I really had to search for the maple & buttery flavors.

I plan on doing as mj did and drink the darjeelings in chronological order. First up – first flush. This tea was greener than I thought it would be. Smallish green and brown leaves. They really bloom up when they steep. The tea ends up being a deep yellow color. It’s a little vegetal and bitter. Reminds me of a mild green tea.

That’s how I did the darjeelings as well. I had a variety of first flush and second flush, but only a few of the third flush as I was kind of burned out by that point. It was definitely a fun way to do it.

I received a package from Marzipan the same day as the Butiki TTB2. I have quite a bit of tea I want to try from that but this tea cut in front of the line. It did not dissapoint. I gave it a whif while it was steeping and it smelled of fresh raspberries. It tasted just like raspberries and a little of white tea. I might try steeping it a little longer next time to help the white tea shine through. I don’t get a lot of pastry flavor but I bet if I add sugar it would taste very much like a sugary treat.
