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!

I’m feeling kind of pitiful today so I decided to try my first guayusa! This was a sample I got with my most recent Butiki order. Seems a bit inappropriate to be drinking a tea with morning in the name in the afternoon, but oh well. This tea has a very pleasant lemon/lemongrass flavor with an extra “grassy” kick which I have to assume is the guayusa. I am enjoying it and would consider ordering it in the future! I hope this perks me up before my boxing class after work :)

Jasmine pearls are pretty much my favorite tea of all time. This is my first time trying them from Butiki. SO GOOD!!!!

I really really want to buy tea from Butiki but I can’t – I’m abstaining from buying any for a while D: Seeing everyone’s reviews is making it very hard for me ._.

Sil

kiwi…they’re soooo good

Stephanie

I understand completely. I have a bunch of stuff on my shopping list I’m trying to hold off on!

KiwiDelight

…I should probably make a tangible list to help me.

Stephanie

I’m on my third steep now and the jasmine is still going strong :)

Swap sample I got from Cheetah_Pita! I am really enjoying this tea this afternoon. The buttery component is pleasing with the (probably too large) amount of sugar I added. I’m really glad I got to try it, thanks again for the swap!

Thanks for the sample yssah! I think my milk oolong got infected with cherry flavoring from another sample tea. When I opened my swap package everything was SO CHERRY smelling. So far none of the ones I have tasted have seemed infected but I am definitely getting a cherry note from this oolong. It is tasty though! :)

Sorry about that..still in the process of getting better packaging ^^’

Stephanie

No probs! Still happy to try them :D

Starfevre

A cherry flavoured milk oolong actually sounds pretty good.

drank SoHo Blend by Harney & Sons

I have SO many new teas and samples right now it was so hard to choose my morning tea today! Not a bad problem to have mind you ;)

Anyway, this is really hitting the spot this morning. I am getting more coconut flavor than anything else, but I’m really liking it! Its subtle but not in a bad way. Nice and creamy too. Thanks for the swap Yssah!

Harney has some terrific stuff for incredible prices, particularly if you’re near one of their stores

Yay! I finally got to try this one! It is pretty much exactly what I expected…creamy white tea goodness with bright juicy pineapple and a cilantro zing. Reminiscent of all my favorite southeast asian foods, in a good way! Definitely great if you are in the mood for something different! And the dry leaf is so beautiful too. Keep up the innovative blending, Stacy! :)
