drank Tangerine Creamsicle by Butiki Teas
1196 tasting notes

Since 52teas’ Citrus Piledriver was the first and only other time I ever have had guayusa, I am reminded a lot of it. Guayusa really does taste good with citrusy fruits added to it. So now it’s time for the next step…all guayusa with flavors!

So for the first time of having something that’s just guayusa, it’s an interesting flavor for me. When I smell it, I don’t want to drink it…then I drink it, and want more. (I’m like this with basil too, when cooking I’m like don’t add too much! And then I’m eating it, I wish I had more.) The creaminess you’d expect in a tea named Tangerine Creamsicle is probably the reason. It tastes orangey and creamy and with that herby, grassy taste of the guayusa, it’s very enjoyable….Should I probably just go back to sleep since I want to describe everything by ending it in -y?

Hopefully this helps wake me up a bit. I got up at the same time I did yesterday because I went to see sheep and goats that are eating the kudzu around Atlanta parks. I fed 2 of them, they really liked whatever I had a branch of, especially the goat…the goat just ripped it out of my hand. I couldn’t stop laughing.

Or if I go back to sleep, no harm done. This is a dreamy flavor, it really tastes like tangerines and oranges with a touch of cream. If you’re interested in trying a guayusa, this is definitely one to check out. You can get a feel for what the base tastes like and enjoy how well it blends with citrusy flavors! This is going on my shopping list for later when I have less things in my cupboard (and boxes and spice drawer and so on), and I bet it would taste so good iced.

Thank you for the sample, Stacy!

Goats are very friendly creatures. The babies will follow one around much like a puppy. Love the little guys. :D

What was especially funny was after all the little goats followed the one wearing a bell, all the sheep would follow too!

Where I used to live in California the County used goats to eat the grasses along the banks of the freeway between San Jose and Gilroy. You would see a huge flock of goats grazing and moved every day. The golf courses had people who went out at night and shot pigs. There were so many wild pigs (not just boars…but mixed with domestic pigs and wild) that I was told by the course manager that there were 100,000 or more in the hills. He offered me one to bbq. Gar….good eating but I could never handle that much meat in my frig! Yikes!

lol yeah herd animals. We had two horses, one that didn’t like to be caught but one that did. We shook some grain in a can at the one that liked to be caught and the one that didn’t would follow right up so we could catch him. :D
My mom keeps goats they seem to congregate as well with horses and cows, well what ever really. They even follow the dogs around.
