994 Tasting Notes

I got three little sample packs of this in my trail tea of the month club box a few months back. Felt like a nice pu-erh today to sorta detox after the weekend! Tasty and nutty and chasing away my sweets craving :)

drank With Open Eyes by Butiki Teas

I must really like this one because I caught myself hoarding it! This morning I wanted to drink some, but almost didn’t because I am running kind of low and thought maybe I should save it for later, lol. Drinking it anyway and enjoying the heck out of it. :)

Not bad! The mint and rose are not overpowering the white tea flavor. Not my favorite combo ever but not as bad as I had feared (I recently found I have an aversion to overly rosey teas!) If you like mint and rose this would be one to try :)

drank Mi Xian Black by Butiki Teas

Such a summery black tea! Very fruity but still rich…just what I needed this morning :)

Sip down! This was enjoyable but I won’t be ordering it again. I much prefer the puerh tuo chas from Butiki :)

drank Unknown Puerh by Red Leaf Tea

Not a bad puerh! I wasn’t expecting much out of this since it was free and all (just paid for shipping) but it actually turned out to be a good smooth non-fishy cup of pu! I probably should have cut the cube in half, I am not sure I will be able to drink enough cups during the day at work today to use up these leaves. Might have to take them home after work and do a cold steep as ashmanra suggested :D

Thanks a bunch Red Leaf Tea!

I had such a busy day yesterday! Huge printmaking sale and then a Weird Al concert last night! Looking forward to spending most of today in my Jammie’s drinking tea and canning gobs and gobs of salsa from our garden! This oolong tastes perfect today :)

Tons of silly fun is the perfect way to describe it actually :D

drank Hazelnut Truffle by Tea Forte
994 tasting notes

I bought a couple of single packets of different Tea Forte teas at my local tea retailer. I love when people sell small amounts because tasting different teas is my favorite! Anyway, this one has a pretty simple black base, nothing extraordinary, but not terrible either. I’m getting more nutty notes than chocolate notes…also something reminiscent of cinnamon? Anyway, not bad for bagged tea. Not exactly like Nutella like I was hoping, but a decent hazelnutty treat :)

I love pretty much every type of tea camellia sinensis can produce. I like herbal teas sometimes but I can’t stand rooibos.

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