694 Tasting Notes

Yum yum yum…I’ve only got a couple servings of this left. I will be OK letting this one go, because I think it is discontinued, but I will be sadder when Irish Cream Cheesecake changes or goes away, heh. Maybe I’m just over this one because it is no longer pumpkin season? shrug I’m still enjoying it though, especially because it is a particularly chilly spring day :)

I have like almost my whole pouch of irish cream cheesecake. Would you like it?

Stephanie

Well sure Keychange! Could I send you anything in return??? PM me :)

drank Grape Sencha by Den's Tea
694 tasting notes

I did a cold brew of this one overnight. It is completely drinkable, but sadly a little “kool-aidey” :/

Now I’m REALLY wishing I’d gone for a larger quantity of the Sakura instead, for sure :(

Maybe the Apple will be slightly better….we’ll see! :)

Wow I’ve been SO busy this weekend I didn’t have time to read OR write tasting notes until now! I taught my first block printing class on Saturday, AND hosted a baby shower…it was awesome but exhausting. I made this tea in a to-go mug for my Sunday afternoon errands. Still one of my fave black teas.

sounds like an awesome weekend to me!

drank Sakura Sencha by Den's Tea
694 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!

Another almost sipdown on a favorite Butiki tea? Looks like my next tea order I save up for will have to be Butiki…
