Thank you Marzipan for the sample!

Hmm, I’m not sure about this one. The chocolate notes are not strong. It isn’t spicy either but there is another flavor floating around that MIGHT be something peppery. But honestly? This reminds me of flavored pipe tobacco! WEIRD!

Anyway, Della Terra’s offerings are hit or miss with me. I’ve only had a couple of them I’ve really loved. Always fun to try new teas though :)

Kenyan whites are really different! I like them. Malty and somewhat lemony. Savory yet sweet. Something about it reminds me of a mild darjeeling. Good stuff :)

Wow, that seems really unexpected for a white tea. Sounds interestingly delicious!

Enjoying more of this interesting tea from Boychik since she sent me such a generous sample :)

Good for when I’m unsure if I am in the mood for black or puerh.

Well, this is better than Puerh #2 but nowhere near as good as Puerh #7. It is a rather bold sheng, with a tiny bit of smoke in the first steep, slightly bitter and astringent with some faint fruity notes. Drinkable but not something I’d seek out again by a long shot :)

I’ve never met a gyokuro I didn’t like, and this is no exception :)

Sweet and green and slightly astringent. Now just waiting to see if the theanine kicks in!

Got to love that theanine kick!

Thank you Courtney for letting me sample this flavor!

Hmm, I’m not sure about this one. I should have tried it with just milk first, but I combined it with a frozen banana. I’ll have to try it plain next time. There is something artificial tasting to me going on here, but based on all the other reviews maybe I am mistaken…I’ll try it plain soon! As of right now I prefer the regular caramel.

boychik

I really liked coconut you send me;)

Stephanie

That one is my favorite boychik!

I’m drinking a rose puerh tuocha this morning. It was in one of the Butiki Educational tea boxes, but I forget which one!

It is drinkable, but nothing special for sure. Kind of boring and not much rose flavor but it isn’t revolting or anything like that. shrug

Courtney

I was thinking of the pu’erhs you’re sending this morning. I hope they show up soon!

Stephanie

Aww man, still not there? Hmm, well let me know in a week or 2 if they still haven’t showed and I’ll try sending another batch :(

Courtney

No worries! It’s not been overly long or anything. I am actually just getting excited to try some new teas haha.

Stephanie

I am excited to hear what you think about them, too!
