drank Colonille by Tea Cozy
1602 tasting notes

It is Christmas Eve, and I am getting excited for the evening! This morning called for something warm and cozy. I chose French Vanilla by Tea Cozy. I received this in a holiday swap a while ago, but I finally transferred this tea into a tin. Delicious tea! The vanilla flavor is subtle and theres a nice sweetness to this tea. There was no bitterness or astringency. I added some sugar and milk, but I think the milk took away a lot of the flavor.

drank Love Goddess by Dragon Tea House
1602 tasting notes

I’m going to have a flowering tea per day to enjoy the holiday weekend! Yesterday was Variety of Colors. Today is Love Goddess! This bloomed up so beautiful! I love how the jasmine flowers make a basket handle and theres a pretty flower at the top. The taste is good too. It is mild with a little nutty taste to it. There is slight jasmine and floral tones to it, but not strong. There was no bitterness to it, surprisingly, as I had steeped this for longer than I thought I should have. After a few sips, I ate some spicy Korean fried chicken, and this tea went well with it.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more

drank Sencha by Golden Moon Tea

I didn’t want to try this tea, but I decided to at work. It was ok… not the best sencha I’ve had. Maybe average or below average…

I finally got to try this one out. Mine popped out to be similar to this in color. It was so beautiful to look at that I almost didn’t want to try it. I poured it into my large mug and enjoyed the honey brown liquor that tasted almost like a green or oolong tea. There wasn’t any jasmine in this, so I was quite happy about it. Of course, my husband took my mug and drank most of it!

drank Malawi White Peony by Butiki Teas
1602 tasting notes

Butiki Teas, you did it again! :) I am totally impressed. I love how they named their company Butiki, which means lizard in Tagalog! Yep I’m Filipino! And they have a great variety of African teas, of which I am an absolute huge fan.

So onto Malawai White Peony. The leaves are very LARGE and of different colors. Some a deep green, some with brown, and others with yellow. They fit nicely in my kyusu.

The liquor was a very light yellow color. The scent was a little vegetal and floral. I love the taste! It is so light and refreshing! It goes down smoothly and is very clean. There is no astringency or bitterness to it. There is some green-ness to this taste, but not grassy. There is some floral tones with a slight sweetness to it. Overall, this is a good tea!

Preparation

In danish butik = shop, so in my head Butiki Teas always end up sounding like ‘Shoppy Teas’ :p
