899 Tasting Notes

Finishing of my tiny sample pack of this. Still not overly exciting to my personal palette. Laoshan black is still the only straight black to really thrill me!

I’ve been hoarding the last few cups of this and a couple of my other favorite Butiki blends. They aren’t even officially in my cupboard! I still have a tiny bit of Maple Pecan Oolong and Cantaloupe and Cream! shh ;)

Anyway, it is a gross rainy Saturday here and I’m at WORK so it is TREAT time! This tea is definitely a treat for me. So creamy and good! Mmmmm, I love it :)

I decided to try to finish up some samples that had been languishing. I still have enough for ONE more cup of this fella. I really like it but apparently I was not in the mood this afternoon like I thought I was. Maybe its just too hot and humid outside for warm smoked tea?

Oh yeah, drinking smoky teas in hot weather doesn’t sound right.

Rie

What about cold smoked tea, I wonder?

I’ve had this tea since last fall. I think it was one of my first major purchases when I started getting hardcore into teas! Unfortunately I am rarely in the mood for mint in my tea, so I still have probably an ounce or so of it just wasting away in my tea drawer. I really need to organize my tea and maybe put up a swap list of stuff I need help drinking down! Maybe this weekend I’ll get on that.

ANYWAY, this tea really isn’t that bad or anything. It sort of reminds of of a chai in a way. (I haven’t been in the mood for chai in a long time, either! Interesting.) Its really light on the caffeine front too, which is generally very good for me! I get a lot of cardamon and mint mostly. I could use a pick me up this afternoon though so I might choose something a bit stronger later in the afternoon…

My first cold steep! I put 1 tablespoon of leaves in 2 cups water in a mason jar in the fridge over night and took out the leaves and drank it with my lunch today. Tasty!!!!

Dinosara

Yay, glad it was a success for you!

Stephanie

Yes! Got a milk oolong steeping in the fridge to try tomorrow, too :)

This is another awesome sample I got from Tealizzy! This is a pretty decent fruity herbal, even though its a teeny bit fake tasting. This is the kind of thing I try not to drink too often because I prefer it with gobs of sugar! Probably would be delicious iced.

Finished off my sample pack in a pitcher with ice. Sad that it is gone! It was excellent iced.

Thanks Tealizzy for letting me try this one! I’m getting a LOT of nice vanilla bean flavor here. The black tea and white tea together make for an interesting combo. I’m getting the floral delicateness of the white with the body of the black. Not getting much cocoa flavor but I’m enjoying it very much anyway! Like the other sTEAp shoppe offering I’ve sampled, the flavoring is very natural and well balanced. This makes me want to try more of their blends! :)

Stephanie

Hey, it re-steeped pretty well too!

I knew I’d be having a crazy day at work today, so I brought a favorite with me!

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