912 Tasting Notes
I forgot to pack my daily tea to bring with me to work today! Lately I’ve been bringing whatever I’m in the mood for any given morning. So today I’m stuck with whatever is hanging out in my desk tea stash. I used to really love this tea! Now it just tastes like hazelnut coffee…meh. It is alright, I’m just more into straight teas these days, I think…or more sophisticated flavored teas maybe! shrug
Found a small ziplock bag with some tea leaves in it near where I keep my Verdant teas. I am pretty sure this one is a puerh?? Man I need to make sure I label stuff better. Anyway, trying to do some sip downs this week since I have a million new teas on the way! :D Anyway, whatever this is seems to be doing the trick for a Monday morning (I ate WAY TOO MUCH junk this weekend) detox. Earthy and smooth.
Much delayed tasting note, heh. I had one of these this morning before heading out for the day. It was delicious as always! Today is my birthday and I had lunch went shopping and got a pedicure with my mom! While we were out I took advantage of my free “whatever the heck I want” for my birthday drink at Starbucks (just register a gift card on their website and you can have one too!) Anyway, it ended up being a huge Venti caramel crunch frappe with soymilk and an extra shot of espresso, so I am WELL caffeinated for the rest of the day. Cracked out even!! boing boing boing Anyway, my sweet husband got me a Butiki gift card for my birthday so I CAN’T WAIT to place my birthday order! :D
My first purple tea! YAY! Thanks Courtney for sharing a little with me so I can try it.
Like other Butiki teas, the flavoring here is very natural and a little subtle but not in a bad way. Mmmm, I love bluberry! The base tea reminds me a little of a green or maybe white tea? It doesn’t have a really strong flavor either, but don’t get me wrong, this tea isn’t bland or anything! It is really quite nice. I’m glad I got to try it. I’d definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a nice natural blueberry flavored tea! I think its the best blueberry tea I’ve tried so far.
I’m so glad I finally got to try some bamboo tea! Thanks Courtney :)
I’m only mostly sure I can pick out the bamboo note in this tea. There is lots of juicy peachy pineapple goodness on top, with a gentle floral undertone and a hint of something vegetal that must be the bamboo. This would be great iced I bet! I am curious to try more bamboo teas now.
