Can’t wait to get home amd make this with some almond milk. Just mixing it with water in a cup I can tell it’s good but doesn’t quite do it justice.

On a trip right now so have to brew the matcha in whatever fashion I can. Most of the time it involves dumping it into a small water bottle and shaking vigorously. This I brewed with hot water and stired with a plastic stir stick. Real fancy…

Definitely getting some hints of sunshine state oranges in there. Not as much…. Uh… Orange zing? As I thought there would be though.

Brewed this the easy way. Dumped the rest of the half tsp in a cup and the poured hot water on it. A bit dry which is weird to say for a liquid but somehow we all get it. As it settles it tastes better. Honestly, I prefer the deluxe oolong from rlt that tastes like oolong over this

Too sweet. I feel like the ingredient listed should belisted in reverse order. Regardless you still get a nice bit of grassiness. The strawberry is more predominate then I thought it was going to be. Its good but a bit too sugary for my tastes.

I was sadly unimpressed with their flavored matcha.

Agreed. I wasn’t fond of any

Steeped this one longer then I meant to. So there’s a slight bitterness to it but honestly it kinda makes me think of burnt sugar, in the good way. I’m not a huge fan of hojicha but it works pretty well in this one

1 tsp

drank Fu Shou Shan by Butiki Teas

Bukiti TTB. A nice refreshing oolong. Smooth flavors. A bit vegetal, I’m not picking up as much asparagus as others but maybe that will come with more steeps.’s a bit floral but only for the first few seconds; then its…. sweet grass, slight cream, maybe very lightly fruity?

Second steep just as good. Kinda over steeped it but it’s still good. No bitterness. A bit more vegetal a little less fruity.

FYI, the Fu Shou Shan from the Educational TTB is probably different than the one we sold. :)

This is a great oolong. Some of them leave me not feeling so great… for whatever odd reason. But this one is smooth and doesn’t give me any weird tingle sensations in my throat. Smooth with some sweetness. A bit of creaminess. Grassy. Actually this is the first time Ive had a tea that has more of a sweet grass. The dry smell is like cherrios….?

Flavors: Sweet, warm grass

2 min, 45 sec 1 tsp

Finally get to try a purple tea. Thank you Bukiti. Really is quite different. Not quite a black but definitely has some eartht notes like one. More woodsy. Hickory. A sweet hickory in scent. Its very light in flavor after 4 minutes of steeping.

This was a perfect fit for this morning. I slept… Very poorly. If you are a fan of rose flavor and rose scent you will like this one. Not only does it smell lovely but the taste is lovely too. Makes me want to make a big cup and go sit in a rose garden. Its a good blend of teas. The rose of course over powers the bases but that’s ok.

Ooooo quite good! Very fitting with my egg on toast. Woodsy, slight twiggy, chocolate, strawberry. Goes down smoothly. Good earthy undertones that flow so well with the rest of the flavors. I gave it a 4 minute steep time but it tasted just fine at 3.

Flavors: Chocolate, Earth, Strawberry

Preparation
1 tsp

Love this one!

Where to being… well, I’ve been drinking jasmine tea for a long time. It still remains a favorite of mine but I’ve now added any more.

Green teas are my favorite. I like black tea but generally prefer it flavored. I’m finding a new love for oolong. Especially the type that leans more toward green. Whites are nice. Rooibos can be a hit or miss, but honeybush is better. (Golden Honeydew by Lupicia is the best). I don’t mind herbals but it really depends on the ingredients.
