Mmm, this one steeped up bright and fruity for me today. I want to sip and savor it but I also want it to hurry up and wake me up…I have the afternoon sleepies.

Joining you (surprised?) on the afternoon sleepys front!! I can barely keep my head up LOL.

Butiki Teas

Same here. Exhausted. Had to wake up extra early to prepare for a tasting workshop that we gave today and will probably be working until 2am to get weekend orders out but I could pass out right now.

Stephanie

At least business is going well, I guess? Sometimes sleepiness is worth it!

Butiki Teas

Stephanie-Absolutely! The workshop went well too. I love meeting and talking with people about tea.

I’m so jealous—I wish I could come to one of your tasting events!

Holy Crap this tastes JUST like potato pancakes with applesauce! I don’t know why I would expect differently, heh. Butiki Teas are always pretty authentic! I’ve just never tasted anything like this before! Amazing!

Thank you Kaylee for this swap sample :D

Fuzzy_Peachkin

I love this one! And I wasn’t sure it would work out the first time I tried it.

Stephanie

I will admit that I was both curious and skeptical of this blend as well.

Fjellrev

I was so skeptical too but it’s ridiculously good.

Kaylee

So glad you like it! I still haven’t figured out quite how she got both flavors into one tea without either one being totally overwhelming…

Finishing off my sample pack of this while I work. Shh, I threw in a half tsp of Laoshan Black. It is even better now! ;)

I had this before work this morning as a hot latte with brown sugar. Perfect on a nice cool autumn morning! :)

BrewTEAlly Sweet

You and your matcha creations. So jealous!

I got a little of this in a swap with Kaylee today. Thanks Kaylee!

I am drinking it unsweetened this afternoon, and it has cooled almost to room temperature. It has a wonderful creamy/nuttiness :) Pistachios are in my top 3 favorite nuts!

BrewTEAlly Sweet

AHHHHH I can’t wait for you to get my swap!

Stephanie

Me too!!!!!

BrewTEAlly Sweet

It should be there anyday now

Dang, steepster is acting funky today. I’m enjoying this tangy TGY this morning! I sometimes forget how much I like oolongs :)

Fuzzy_Peachkin

Yeah! Steepster’s really loopy today!

keychange

definitely loopy!

I still don’t remember who sent me this in a swap but I still love it! It is one of the first “dark” oolongs I’ve really enjoyed. It is so floral and fruity! I only have one cup of it left which makes me sad…HOWEVER, I got an email from Angel at Teavivre this morning that I won the Oolong Sampler Assortment giveaway! YAY!!!! :D

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Congrats how exciting!

JustJames

oooo! an oolong sampler! can’t wait to read the reviews!!
