Yeah, this is really great.
This is the kinda tea I want as a chillout evening tea. No stinking hibiscus like so many of the others that currently live at my bedside tea station. I’m pretty over them!
This one worked really nicely to ease an inbound headache at work this evening. It’s only got four ingredients and they work really well together without needing a) hibiscus or even b) chamomile! I like chamomile but it can be overpowering in some blends. Not this one! Get outta town.
I used the brewing method that Lion Repshire mentioned in his tasting notes for my last sample of this:
“2.5g per 100ml for 45 seconds at 170F. Add 15 seconds to repeated infusions.”
My “2.5g per 100ml” ended up a little more like “maybe a bit more than a teaspoon or 3g according to my scales that only work in full grams per teacup that is probably around 200ml I guess”, but the brewing was a lot of fun and definitely brought out some much fruitier notes. Fun!
No notes yet. Add one?
Had to bump my rating back up because I remain obsessed with this.
It’s been a few weeks since I’ve let myself have a mug of Hello Sweetie because it’s starting to get low and I’m not allowed another Butiki order for a while (my own orders). The anticipation of another mug of this got me way too excited. Obsessed.
Dang, it’s just so good.
I reckon Hello Sweetie’s strongest presence is with 3:1 tea:sugar (makes it quite sweet but with the sweetness comes the full gamut of flavour) topped off with cream.
I’m dying. I’m dying. I’m so happy.
How do I have over seventy teas in my cupboard and yet still hum and hah over which one I feel like drinking? This is exactly the same issue I have with my enormous wardrobe sometimes.
This afternoon I’ve moved onto the tea that prompted my first-ever tea swap after lusting over the Coconut Grove that ashleyelizabeth put up in the international swap thread.
Speaking of which, I’ve just listed a few of my own in there, if anyone’s keen on a swap with this Aussie! Now’s your time to shine.
(Seriously though… do I seriously have over seventy teas? Because I’m lookin’ at them and it doesn’t look like it. But I sure do recognise every tea when I look through my Steepster cupboard. Geez…)
