My afternoon tea is also a swap from My Friend Rashad! (thanks again!) The black tea base on this one is very earthy (almost too earthy for me) with a punch-you-in-the-face fruit flavor on top. Drinkable but not going on my shopping list or anything.

My Friend Rashad

A lot of people don’t like it. I have history with this tea. It’s nostalgic for me.

Stephanie

Oh, I totally get that.

Thanks for the swap My Friend Rashad! This is pretty good :) Hard to describe but good!

I’m not a real big fan of this tea hot :( I’ve tried it twice and its just not my thing. I think I’m going to like it better iced in the summer (I hope!) I usually love green teas and anything from Butiki. Not sure what my problem is!

Stephanie

Bleh, I think I’m going to have to dump out my mug :( Anyone who likes this one and wants to swap I’ve got almost an ounce of it!

Sil

awe that’s so sad. I think Raritea was looking to purchase some of this, so she might be interested in a swap.

Stephanie

I know, it makes me sad too! I was so sure I would love it! Thanks for the tip, I’ll get in touch with Raritea :)

Thanks Emilie for the swap! My husband and I both had a cup of this last night. I was excited to finally taste mulberry leaves! It was good but not my favorite tea ever. Glad I got to try it but its not going on my shopping list :)

Sipped on a big to go mug of this all afternoon while out shopping in the rain. This weather is such a bummer! It’s going to snow tonight, too.

Thanks Emilie for the swap! I love white tea and I love coconut, so sure enough, this tea is fantastic :D going on my shopping list…

I’m really glad I was accidentally sent extra samples of this tea because #1 this is only my 2nd Pu-er EVER (the first being some “season’s pick” puer fannings from Upton) so I’m still figuring out pu-ers, and #2 I had an allergy attack (sneezing fit) halfway through my steepings and my taste buds are a bit deadened from not being able to smell right now. I’m on steep #4 right now and it has been fun to notice differences between the steeps. I steeped according to the workshops recommendation. Thanks Verdant for offering tea of the month trials! :)

drank Tropical Mango by Teajo Teas

Wow, this tea is intense (in a good way!) Thanks so much to Piccolo and Teajo for the sample! I love the deep rich assam with the assertive mango flavor. I am enjoying it hot but I’m sure it will be wonderful iced, too. It is an interesting contrast to the peach oolong I had earlier today, too, heh.

drank Peach Oolong by Butiki Teas

I somehow lost track of this sample and re-found it again this morning and decided to finally taste it. It has a very nice peach flavor balanced by the fruity oolong. I think I would really enjoy this one even more iced!
