Sad sip down. I would re-stock this one for sure but I will probably replace it in my cupboard with Hello Sweetie when that one becomes available!

Dustin

Was it limited edition?

Stephanie

No, it is still available, and very good, but I slightly prefer Hello Sweetie as my banana Butiki tea, because of the addition of coconut to the mix!

Another almost sipdown on a favorite Butiki tea? Looks like my next tea order I save up for will have to be Butiki…

I am allowing myself to drink more of this one because I just ordered another sample pack with my Teavivre points (can’t afford a whole cake, much less have anywhere to store it! boo!) I also picked up some more jasmine peach pearls, and a sample of tangerine ripe puerh which is exciting!

I love the energy and wildness of this young sheng. Perfect pick me up for an EXTRA EARLY Monday morning. Not a big fan of daylight savings time, heh.

DST – I slept in til 9:00 this morning. My brain told me it would have been 8:00 last week. Either way that is about 4 hours more than normal. Retirement is great. I highly recommend it. Takes the suck right out of DST.

Stephanie

Sounds amazing! Sleeping in is one of my favorite things in the world ;)

boychik

we couldnt get up. i hate daylight savings time. Russia stopped doing this couple yrs ago

Fjellrev

I hate it too. Granted I don’t have a regular sleeping schedule but it sucks when you look at the time and feel like you’ve slept an extra hour, or are going to bed an hour later.

Made my special avocado, milk, ice, sugar and white matcha smoothie for breakfast. I love all these things together :)

Amanda 'SoggyEnderman' Wilson

That sounds like a really tasty smoothie!

Finished off the last of my straight matcha last night making a green tea mochi cake!

I used that recipe, but sifted 2tsp matcha into the rice flour. It was REALLY GOOD! I’m wondering how it would taste using flavored matcha now…maybe I’ll try that some day :)

Made this one into a smoothie for breakfast with a banana, some peanut butter, ice and unsweetened almond milk. Very nice!

Another cold brew backlog. Thanks again Courtney for letting my buy this from you!

I am LOVING this one cold brewed. Pineapple and creamy coconutty goodness! It almost has a marshmallowy quality yet is still totally unsweetened!

Suziqzer

Sounds like something to try by the pool this summer!

Cold Brew Backlog!

I’m almost out of this, but I have more on the way, YAY! I’m finding I really enjoy flavored senchas cold brewed, and nothing could be quicker or easier! I will be doing this a lot this spring and summer, I think.

Sil

i keep meaning to order this one heh…

Stephanie

They have a flavored tasting pack right now, Sil with 1oz of each of this, apple, grape, and sakura! In stock until the sakura sells out :)

Sil

yeah..i saw that. pretty tempting but i’m also REALLY trying to be good…so maybe i can hold out until next year hahahaha

Stephanie

I understand completely!

Fjellrev

Funny, I was JUST thinking about Den’s last night, and how I haven’t ordered from the in two years. This definitely sounds like it would make an excellent cold brew!

Stephanie

Now is a great time to remember about Den’s because it is Sakura Sencha time! Limited edition seasonal :)
