1060 Tasting Notes

Found a small ziplock bag with some tea leaves in it near where I keep my Verdant teas. I am pretty sure this one is a puerh?? Man I need to make sure I label stuff better. Anyway, trying to do some sip downs this week since I have a million new teas on the way! :D Anyway, whatever this is seems to be doing the trick for a Monday morning (I ate WAY TOO MUCH junk this weekend) detox. Earthy and smooth.

Finally making this tea properly with my new variable temp kettle! Deeeelish! I still prefer it a little weaker than the package directions. 2tsp in 8oz at 160.

Much delayed tasting note, heh. I had one of these this morning before heading out for the day. It was delicious as always! Today is my birthday and I had lunch went shopping and got a pedicure with my mom! While we were out I took advantage of my free “whatever the heck I want” for my birthday drink at Starbucks (just register a gift card on their website and you can have one too!) Anyway, it ended up being a huge Venti caramel crunch frappe with soymilk and an extra shot of espresso, so I am WELL caffeinated for the rest of the day. Cracked out even!! boing boing boing Anyway, my sweet husband got me a Butiki gift card for my birthday so I CAN’T WAIT to place my birthday order! :D


Happy Birthday!

Having a cup of this this morning with a rice crispy treat with M&Ms in it. My coworkers brought them for my birthday treat! My birthday is actually tomorrow, but I’m off work so we’re celebrating it at work today :D Anyway, very tasty combo, heh.


Well Happy Birthday a day early. Eat another for me.


Thanks :)

Finished my sample pack of gyokuro this morning. Fine by me, I’ve still got a bunch of shincha which I like even more!

My first purple tea! YAY! Thanks Courtney for sharing a little with me so I can try it.

Like other Butiki teas, the flavoring here is very natural and a little subtle but not in a bad way. Mmmm, I love bluberry! The base tea reminds me a little of a green or maybe white tea? It doesn’t have a really strong flavor either, but don’t get me wrong, this tea isn’t bland or anything! It is really quite nice. I’m glad I got to try it. I’d definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a nice natural blueberry flavored tea! I think its the best blueberry tea I’ve tried so far.


There’s something about this one I just can’t get enough of. I’m glad you enjoyed it as well :)

I’m so glad I finally got to try some bamboo tea! Thanks Courtney :)

I’m only mostly sure I can pick out the bamboo note in this tea. There is lots of juicy peachy pineapple goodness on top, with a gentle floral undertone and a hint of something vegetal that must be the bamboo. This would be great iced I bet! I am curious to try more bamboo teas now.


So yummy!


The bamboo is not as obvious in this one as it is in Blazing Strawberries, because the fruity pineapple/other flavours mask it a bit more.


Blazing strawberries must be discontinued :(


Oops, sorry, yeah it is :( I’m hoping it comes back someday though – it’s a great tea!

Still trying to work through some samples today! I’m still a big fan of this tea apparently. It reminds me of creme brulee! I doubt I will reorder but its pretty good :)

Graphic artist, printmaker, lover of tea.

I love pretty much every type of tea camellia sinensis can produce. I like herbal teas sometimes but I can’t stand rooibos. I’m recently becoming a puerh addict.

Butiki, Verdant, Mandala, TeaVivre, Yunnan Sourcing, TeaUrchin, White2Tea and Den’s are my favorite online retailers so far.
