2269 Tasting Notes

Thank you Roswell Strange for sharing this with me. It actually reminds me of DAVIDs Blueberry Jam except the base is a little thicker/more astringent (which can happen with bagged teas). It’s not bad but I feel like rather than drinking this, I’d probably just go to DAVIDs and get Blueberry Jam.

drank Pineapple Sencha by Den's Tea

This is an awesome pineapple flavor. Seriously, it’s spot on to a fresh, juicy slice of pineapple. Lots of sweet but also tang. The base adds a layer of vegetal flavor but really it’s the flavoring that shines.

I love this one too :)

drank Milk Caramel by Lupicia

So I had this before and wasn’t impressed but today it is amazing! Great caramel flavor but there is also a fair bit of nut flavouring that is giving a nougatty impression. It’s actually really good! 264.

I should have let this steep longer but it was sooooooo dark that I worried the hibiscus was already taking over the cold brew. Now, as I sip, luckily there is no tartness but there also isn’t much other flavors either. However, what I do pick up as the sip ends is a nice splash of sweet berry goodness. If only that flavor were stronger because what little I am getting is amazing. Well, at least I have more to experiment with so thank you Roswell Strange for the share :)

Thank you Roswell Strange for the share. When brewing, this smelled amazing and as I sip, I am enjoying it more than I anticipated I would. The base is a faint orange flavour but add to that a touch of pepper and a nice dose of spice and you have a surprisingly pleasant cup of tea. However, I do want to mention it is best hot because the flavors change as it cools and they aren’t as good. 265.

drank Muscat by Lupicia

Lupicia knows how to do grape and this is no exception but there are other blends/bases that utilize the muscat flavor better (muscat oolong and jingle bells come to mind). I blame their black base which just seems to be too overpowering for flavored blends. 266.

Last cup of this was amazing because it had more apple so it almost had a caramel sweetness. This cup had more potato which means the base was more prominent and the tea was not as sweet.

Drank the last of this tea and I could never seem to get this to work for me. Today I tossed in a bit of sugar (which I hate doing) and it amped up the jam just a little but not enough that it finally reached my original expectations. Oh well. It was still fun to try and luckily this is one I’m not sad to see go (unlike so many other Butiki’s)

I am rarely big on flavored teas, but this one is on my to-try list. Sounds great.

Had this as my dessert latte last night and it really was quite nice. It was like a delicious poached pear a la mode. Rich cinnamon warmth, juicy pear sweetness, and a dash of creaminess from the milk. Yum!

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
