971 tasting notes

Already regretting only getting 1 oz of this. What was I thinking?!

Sigh. So good :) it’s like a gentle floral with a hint of cherry, which is perfect with the butter greeny Sencha.

boychik

i should probably get it. There was no sakura sample in my Den’s sampler;(

boychik

did you try apple sencha and grape sencha? i was thinking maybe its better to get pineapple and sakura only. your thoghts

Stephanie

I haven’t tried grape or apple yet. I’ll bust those open ASAP! :) I definitely recommend pineapple and Sakura though.

Another Butiki favorite. I just realized that today is Friday! TGIF!!!

Seriously there is something so special about this tea.

Fjellrev

The melon flavourings she uses are incredible.

Sip down :(

I will miss its sweet vegetal goodness. At least I got a bunch of sencha in the mail yesterday so I’ve got some greens around! Nothing quite like this one, though. It is similar to Laoshan Green but brighter and sweeter and with more of an asparagus/sweet corn flavor.

This is the March free sample of the month, so if you haven’t tried it yet, hop to it! All you have to do is pay for shipping and you get five servings!!!

I made a hot latte out of this for breakfast. WOW. Super cheesecakey! This is officially my 2nd favorite matcha flavor from Red Leaf, right under coconut (#1!). I would definitely order this one again :)

boychik

i just got a sample in a mail. where do you store it after its opened?

Stephanie

I tape mine shut and stick them in the fridge. Supposed to keep it fresh longer!

Dustin

I tried the rooibos base with this flavor and it was amazing! Can’t wait to try the matcha version!

boychik

Thanks;)

I got my Den’s order in the mail today, YAY!

Celebrating with some toasty ricey genmaicha with the extra kick of matcha!

TheTeaFairy

That makes two of us Stephanie. I got a small supply of Genmaicha from Zen Tea today, I’m drinking it with a nice cod filet tonight, can’t wait, love it with any fish dish!

Stephanie

Awesome TheTeaFairy! It does sound really good with fish. I’m drinking my 2nd steep now, WOW this stuff is way more caffeinated than normal Genmaicha due to the matcha…tea buzz LOL ;)

TheTeaFairy

Glad you are enjoying your cup! I’m not a fan of matcha but good tea buzz is always welcome ;-)

TeaBrat

enjoy! Den’s is yummy!

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!

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!

I love pretty much every type of tea camellia sinensis can produce. I like herbal teas sometimes but I can’t stand rooibos.

Butiki, Verdant, Mandala, TeaVivre and Den’s are my favorite online retailers so far.
