945 Tasting Notes

Wow. This is the most authentic pastry tasting tea I’ve ever had! It is buttery, a little nutty, and very “bakery” flavored! I am drinking it unsweetened but I imagine it would be out of this world with a little honey! Thank you SO MUCH for the sample of this one BrewTEAlly Sweet!!!

Anna

I SO want to try this, I’ve been seeing notes on it all over the place lately. I can’t even imagine what it would taste like.

Courtney

This is one of my all-time favourites. So delicious!

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Right?! I was sooooo excited for you to try this! Yay! And they now have a decaf version so it can be a nice bedtime tea!

This will be the first of many tasting notes from the huge box of swap samples BrewTEAlly Sweet sent me! Thaaaaaaaanks! :D

Della Terra makes a few rooibos teas I can actually enjoy, though generally I tend to really dislike rooibos. This is another winner from Della Terra. I think I like it even more than the lemon chiffon! Super creamy and Limey! The bitterness of the rooibos is completely masked, and I love me some lime in general :)

Glad to have a few new herbals to try, since it is chilly in the evenings now, and I’m actually reaching for evening teas again.

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Wait until you try DAVIDs Lime Gelato!

BrewTEAlly Sweet

I am the same way with Rooibos’

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.

keychange

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.

keychange

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…

BrewTEAlly Sweet

I have been sooooooo tempted to order this!!!!

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
