912 Tasting Notes
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 :)
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! :)
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!
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! :)
