Stacy 100% captures melon in this just as she has done in her other melon teas but I find I am missing the cream notes I loved in Cantaloupe & Cream. Granted that’s not a fair comparison as it doesn’t claim to be a cream tea but the flavor is just so similar that I can’t help but draw parallels that leave me missing it’s predecessor. For what it is though, it is excellently executed as to be expected from Butiki.

doh.

Yes. I wanted the cream, but I know she was out of cream flavouring at that point.

Mmmmm…its like a coconut strawberry cookie. Delicious, even when its cooled down completely.

The smell of this in the bag is sooooooooooo good. I’m hesitant to try it because I know I will love it and once it’s gone, it’s REALLY gone :`(

That is true why I’m in the search for more. Stock piling :P

I have had this in my cupboard for a while and have not yet gotten a chance to try it. Now as I sip on it, I am getting some bready notes but also some astringency. I find I am just looking for more. There are many other straight black teas that I just prefer to this.

Finished off the last of this tea with the last of my Candy Cane eggnog. It was good but this was much better as a plain eggnog drink. Still, both will be missed.

I brewed this up this morning and was quite excited given the rave reviews this tea has been getting but tbh I was disappointed. It’s good but I find I enjoy the individual elements much more than the combination of them together. I just find them to be richer in flavor where as this is muted to me (and I know that is probably just me since so many others love this). However, my lack of love for this tea makes it that much easier to happily pass this along to another steepster who will enjoy it far more than I ever could.

Finished off the last of this as a candy cane eggnog and it tastes just like an After Eight. Yum!

OMG. I need milk so I can try this. And maybe some candy cane. Hmm.

drank Peppermint Patty by Butiki Teas

Tried this as a plain eggnog latte and something went really, really wrong and it tasted bad. Today, made as a Candy Cane eggnog latte, everything is just right. So good and it’s really hitting the spot.

drank Neptune by Lupicia
3020 tasting notes

So I had this before and I don’t recall it much but I remember thinking I was not a huge fan. As I drink it now, I am finding it pleasant. There is a generic fruit flavor with distinctive honey notes, just as Lupicia advertises but that’s it. Nothing particularly special so though I am enjoying the cup, it is one I am likely to forget soon enough.

drank Wild Woman by Tay Tea
3020 tasting notes

This is one of the teas from the December Amoda box and when I opened the package, I immediately got a whiff of the juicy berry flavoring in the tea. It was amazing and as the tea steeped, the smell just got stronger. It was so familiar and so delectable but I could not place it…until I took my first sip. It tasted much like DAVIDs Blueberry Jam. It is not as jammy as that tea though due to (1) the addition of hibiscus which is quelling the sweetness and (2) the lack of stevia sweetener also leading to less sweetness. Instead, it is weaker and more like indulging in a bowl of berries. Tasty but not something I must have again.

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.
