This is a nice cup of oolong. Not too sweet but does take care of the craving :) Love the balance of maple and pecans – yummy just right!

drank Pineapple Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
34 tasting notes

Gots me a free sample of this from a really nice girl at DAVIDs last evening. Woohoo free tea!!!

Well it smells like white wine to me when steeped hot. Am I the only one who thinks this? Probably lol! But it does. Anyway it is nice but I do find the oolong base a bit to light for my liking. With so many more oolongs to try, I probably won’t purchase again anytime soon.

I couldn’t taste anything but pineapple and water when I tried it. I agree — too much good oolong out there to waste time with this one.

Yes it seemed very watered down. Not sure about the apricot flavour I noticed either…

So glad I popped into DAVID’s last evening and gave this a try. It is a really lovely tea. Creamy and not too floral. This cuppa hit the spot at work this morning so I will make sure my work tea drawer is stocked with this!

This is a beautiful cup of tea. I only wished I tried my sample before the postal rates went up for us in Canada :(. No matter, I will order this tea and many others from Butiki Teas because I love all the teas I have had from Stacy so far! I love how the cantaloupe is the first taste followed by the cream. It’s perfect!

This is a sweet cup of deliciousness! I wouldn’t have it as a everyday tea, but it’s a great go-to when craving sweets. Nice flavour balance and the caramel notes at the end of the sip is all kinds of yum!

This is pretty good! Very strong on the cinnamon, at least I think so. A dash of sugar and a splash of soy milk helped take that edge off. Overall a pretty tasty tea.

Boiling 3 min, 15 sec

drank Grapefruit Dragon by Butiki Teas
34 tasting notes

Backlog:

I’m truly in awe of this tea – truly a treat to drink! The tart taste of the grapefruit and the dragon well base were meant to be together. Love that hit of tartness on the tongue at the end of the sip, yet it has a sweetness to it that just goes perfectly with everything else. Another tea with a beautiful colour when steeped.

Sil

best. grapefruit tea out there. :)

drank Creamy Eggnog by Butiki Teas

Ermergerd!!! First I want to send a big thank you to Stacy for being so nice and accommodating my anal organizational request :) I appreciate it!!
As for the tea please see my first word above. This is beyond delicious. The at-first subtle vanilla notes become more pronounced as it cools. And I do detect a creamy egg taste too! Beautiful colour once steeped. I cannot say enough good things about this tea! My only wish is that this tea will be available all year long.

You’re quite welcome! Well, this one might be available all year. We will definitely be selling it until summer but if there are still enough sales we will keep it throughout the year. The longest it might be removed is 3-4 months.

I decided to grab a cup of this to go and I’m so glad I did! I love the raspberries and roasted chicory root. Just a very tasty Yerba mate! Will have to stock this one in my work drawer :)
