Sip down! I really enjoyed this Sencha, but I have to admit I was a little excited to see it go, but only because I’ve got a new pouch of a different Sencha I wouldn’t let myself open until I finished this one! :D

I love the idea of a chocolate/mint/vanilla tea! I don’t know what my beef is lately but Della Terra teas have not been thrilling to me. I guess I’m spoiled? shrug Drinkable but not something I would purchase.

Thanks for letting me try it BrewTEAlly Sweet :D

This morning I am drinking 50% Butiki Pumpkin Creme Brulee and 50% Butiki Pumpkin Milkshake!

It is good but I definitely still prefer Pumpkin Milkshake by itself :D


Somebody had to! ;)

drank Black Beauty by Mandala Tea

I got a sample of this tea with my first Mandala order. Thanks Garret!

This is not a kind of tea I actively seek out, but a kind I always tend to enjoy. Very smooth and sweet. Lots of nice roasty and cocoa-like flavors without being super heavy. I’m glad I got to try it :)

Oh yeah! I almost forgot I made a big pitcher of iced Verdant oolongs. I had a couple of almost empty sample packs that I wanted to finish off- It was half hand picked Autumn Tieguanyin and half Shui Jin Gui Wuyi Oolong (Don’t freak out, purists!) And OMG it is SO GOOD! Best straight iced tea ever! :D


Did you cold steep it? or hot steep and cool?
I’ve never had any luck with cold oolong and was just wondering how you did it?


Hot steeped , actually. Over and over and dumped them all together and chilled!


Interesting, I have both of those – need to try it again sometime. Thanks for the info.

I gotta say, this one scares me a little. Not because of the spooky ghosts, but because it smells a bit like fruitloops or something, LOL.

Yeahhhhh, this one is not my thing! I’m getting blueberry candy flavor, but no chocolate. Kinda glad though, actually.

Thanks for sending me a sample to taste BrewTEAlly Sweet! :)

drank Pumpkin Milkshake by Butiki Teas
1108 tasting notes

YUM! Having another cup of this delicious and seasonally appropriate tea today. I wonder how soon the art contest results are going to be announced! I’m trying not to get my hopes up but I’ve always got so many teas on my Butiki wish list :)

Here is my entry if anyone would like to see it https://www.etsy.com/listing/167380897/tea-mandala-12×12-canvas-wrap-ready-to

Butiki Teas

I think we will announce results by the end of this week or beginning of next week. I need to get the art entries to the judges.


Oh cool :D I was wondering how that is going to work. YAY!

drank Birthday Cake by Butiki Teas
1108 tasting notes

Thanks to Courtney for sending me a sample of this to try!

I’m very glad I got to try it. I think the flavoring is pretty good, but the marshmallow base is a little too weak for me. I think this would be wonderful on a genmaicha or decaf black base. I’m pretty picky about my herbals, I will say. There are only a few I actually really like.


Stacy’s may be reblending this with another base

I love pretty much every type of tea camellia sinensis can produce. I like herbal teas sometimes but I can’t stand rooibos. I’m recently becoming a puerh addict.

Butiki, Verdant, Mandala, TeaVivre, Yunnan Sourcing, TeaUrchin, White2Tea and Den’s are my favorite online retailers so far.
