drank Tamarind Pop by Butiki Teas

With all the high ratings I had high hope but I’m honestly not that impressed. Perhaps it’s because my sample doesn’t contain enough tamarind. Regardless I’m getting mainly earthy / woodsy undertones calmed by a smooth caramel / vanilla flavor.

Trying this one again for a second time as I am sitting here doing my taxes. I feel that the earthy tones are coming out even more when it’s warm. I think it’s better around 2 mins of steep time. Both times I’ve gone past that I feel that the tea has too much of a twiggy …woodsy flavor. Which I don’t really like.

This is much better then I thought it was going to be. It’s a name and flavor that really match each other. I feel quite at ease while drinking this. The longer it steeps the sweeter it gets, which I don’t really think makes it any better. It seems to be best around the 5 min mark.

Preparation
1 tsp

What a great aroma! It’s so tangy! The flavor is also tangy but it required at least 10 minuets of steep time to get to this. At 5 mins it was way too light. The color was a light red. But now after 10 mins it’s much better. The color is a deep, rich red and the flavor is much better.

Preparation
150 °F / 65 °C 8 min or more 1 tsp

Spicy smell, spicy taste. Kinda looks spicy too. Actually when I saw that there was oolong in it I got excited because Verdant has good oolong. The flavor is very much like the scent. Though I’m not really sure of the use of Tulsi. It’s like hibiscus, its overpowering. The smoothness and flavor of the oolong are pretty much none existent.

Preparation
Boiling 1 min, 30 sec 1 tsp

Why do you call it cranberry when there is no cranberry in it!?!?! Doesn’t even really remind me of cranberries; just hibiscus. It’s better cold but even so I’m still mot enjoying drinking this… I’m gonna go make some matcha.

Picked this one up from Tjmaxx. You can always find an odd assortment of tea there. I’m actually tasting truffle! It’s quite a good mix of flavors but at end you get a distinct chocolate truffle flavor. It kinda sits in your mouth and makes you want a chocolate truffle.

Must have messed this up something fierce the first time I made this. The spices are definitely prevalent amoung the flavors. I’m not sensing much pumpkin. It’s there but it’s not as strong as I thought it was going to be.

drank Guava Matcha by Red Leaf Tea

Smells like Bubblicios bubble gum. Tastes like…. something not guava. Something artificial. Kinda reminds me of something but I’m not quite sure of what that is. Maybe this tastes like a guava that I haven’t tasted but it sure doesn’t taste like Hawaiian guava.

1/2 tsp matcha and 6 oz milk

Sugar is the first ingredient so technically it should be a sugary flavor I get first but I don’t; it’s salty. I prepared it as it’s listed on the package. 8oz of almond milk and 2 tsp of matcha. I’m not tasting the cherry. Maybe it’s because of the almond milk.

Update: I made it again but this time with 4oz almond milk and 1tsp matcha. Much better but still no cherry anything. It’s fine as a plain matcha just don’t call it sakura for it’s cherry flavor.

Ugh, salty matcha sounds awful.

I didn’t like the two flavored matchas of theirs that I tried. :/

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.
