690 Tasting Notes

Well, this isn’t joking around. It tastes EXACTLY like Mexican hot chocolate. I made it as a latte with sugar. This was very fun to try! Thanks a bunch, Kaylee!

Kaylee

I’m amazed that we had such radically different experiences of this tea. Maybe the key really is to add proper milk…

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Yay!for mexican choco!

Stephanie

Do you like other mate teas Kaylee?

Kaylee

I like regular mate. I don’t think I’ve had any other flavored mates.

Thanks so much to the lovely teamore for this swap sample!

I’m a little leery of heavily floral teas, though a good jasmine green is one of my favorite things ever. This one does NOT taste like drinking perfume, LOL. It is delicate, feminine, sweet and totally drinkable! It is the kind of flavor I can get lost in…

I really want to try the Champagne Rose Cream now! ugh!!!!

Butiki Teas

The Champagne & Rose Cream is one of the teas I’m most proud of. I love how it came out. I definitely recommend giving it a try. :)

Stephanie

I’m hoping to place an order not next week but the week after. Fingers crossed for art fair monies! And fingers crossed you don’t run out of carrot cake before then! :)

Butiki Teas

Stephanie-I would really doubt that we would run out of the carrot cake by then. We have enough for 3 large batches. I could always set aside an ounce for you to be sure though.

Stephanie

Ok great! Sounds like you have plenty, don’t worry about holding any :)

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Oh man. Another to add to my wishlist for butiki. It just keeps getting bigger and bigger. Champagne & rose cream is already on there as well. Too many! Not enough mulah! :(

Butiki Teas

Stephanie-Ok. I will be announcing when we are getting low on it anyways.

BrewTEAlly Sweet-Glad to hear that our teas sound interesting! :)

I can vouch for the champagne and rose cream being exquisite, and am a huge, huge, huge fan of the rose violet calendula. It’s almost too beautiful for me to drink. Almost.

LuckyMe

Thanks, I’ll have to check this one out. I’ve been searching for a decent rose tea for a while now. Currently drinking Numi white rose which is okay but lacks the rose flavor I was expecting.

STILL not awake! So I decided to try this swap sample from BrewTEAlly Sweet :)

I’m not really sure what to make of this flavor. It is very toasty/roasty from the roasted mate/coffee beans but I’m not getting much else. That’s okay though. I am glad I got to try it but apparently I prefer my mate with a little something more to flavor it :)

I’m totally going to fall asleep during yoga class tonight, hahaha.

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Its a very roasty mate.

Stephanie

ooop, now I’m AWAKE O_O hah

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Ha ha it kicked in?

Stephanie

Apparently!

Made a cup of this and threw it over ice to drink with my lunch. It is delicious iced. I’m super dragging today, Zzzzzz… Tea to the rescue! :D

I’ve been so focused on going through my vast amount of swap samples, I haven’t had a tasty straight green tea in a while. I went straight for this one this morning and of course it does NOT disappoint! :)

I bought this tisane locally last night in bulk. It has a lot of lemongrass, some lemon peel, ginger, and licorice root.

It was very inexpensive and is a really good bedtime tea when I’m not in the mood for a chamomile based blend.

I like me some lemongrass! And the ginger is nice and spicy :)

kimquat is awesome for sending me a serving of this. I loves it and I haven’t had a chance to buy any yet! It is a perfect fall tea :)

I will be drinking cups of it all day while I work!

BrewTEAlly Sweet

I’m sooooooo jealous. I’ve been trying to get my hands on some of this! I think I actually might have a swap containing this on its way already. I can’t remember ha ha

Stephanie

It’s really nice! No “flavorings” either, just vanilla bean chunks and cinnamon stick :)

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Mmmmm mouth watering

I’ve been drinking this one all day. Very, very nice! I love a good creamy, vegetal oolong :)

Thanks again to kimquat for the wonderful Mandala swap package. I know exactly what I’m going to be ordering now! :D

Now I just have to wait a couple weeks for my big fall art fair so I have TEA MONIES! WOOT
