1135 Tasting Notes

Thank you for the samples Angel at Teavivre!
This was an incredibly smooth cuppa. It was fairly green with lots of vegetal and buttery notes. It is very floral but not cloying or soapy in any way.
It is delicious of course.
The resteeps are possibly even more enjoyable than the first cuppa

I’m so impressed about its floral fragrance in each steep.

This was an ok tea but there are a lot better earl grey teas out there. I found it too pricey for low to mid range quality loose leaf tea

Yep, I was into steeped tea for a while-not anymore. Just as a comparison, 50g of rooibos tea blends from iHOT (local tea shop)= $5.75, DAVIDs TEA: around $7, Steeped tea: around $8.50. They are really overpriced.

Ya and it’s not like the tea is exceptional quality or anything

Ewww…i tried this as a cold brew since I have been doing all my herbals that way lately. Since creme caramel rooibos turned out well as a cold brew, I though his would be ok too. I was wrong, so very wrong. It is WAY too sweet and just…yuck.

I surprisingly enjoyed this as a cold brew.

I finished this off with some honey, lemon, and ginger because I have a summer cold. Blah to summer colds :(

drank Coco Colada by DAVIDsTEA

This was a good cold brew but it was a little too artificially sweet. But, I really enjoy coconut, so this is definitely something that I would drink.

This is a sad sipdown because this is my last cuppa of Butiki Teas. Their tea was exceptional. I will miss their naturally flavoured tea, and the straight ones too.
This was a fabulous tea—-hot or cold brewed.

Aww, this was truly amazing.

Thank you for the sample Teavivre!
This tea is certainly fragrant! It smells delicious, like sweet potatoes and brown sugar with a hint of cocoa.
The taste translates fairly well into the taste, but maybe a little milder than I expected. The cocoa notes aren’t as strong as I would have liked based on the taste but it is a lovely cuppa. The sweet potatoe/molasses notes last throughout the resteep as well.
I used the whole packet which was about 2T

I finished this off as a cold brew and it was delicious! Sweet with slight nutty and mocha notes.

VariaTEA

I miss this tea. It was so lovely.

Super Starling!

I’m so depressed that Butiki Teas doesn’t exist any more. Every time I read a review, I get excited about trying them, then remember the horrible truth.

Ya, Butiki was so good!! There is other good tea out there in the tea world though!!

I really enjoyed this tea but it did get astringent if brewed too long.
It is sweet but still robust enough for the morning.

Bio

Hello,
I am a nurse. I have numerous hobbies: reading, crocheting, crafting, card making, scrapbooking, photography, shopping, and of course drinking TEA!

I started drinking loose leaf tea in Dec. 2010 when I went into a DavidsTea for the first time and have been hooked ever since! My favourite is probably white tea, but I also love black and oolong. I also like a nice relaxing rooibos or herbal in the evening. On Sundays, I like to treat myself and make a tea latte.

My favourite flavours are nutty, vanilla, chocolate, jasmine, tropical, fruity, earl grey.
My dislikes are lavender, rose, hibiscus, banana, and straight green or overly vegetal teas.

I am admittedly fairly generous in my rating scale. Most of my teas I rate at 90 and above, and would re-stock these teas.
Anything under 90 I probably wouldn’t re-stock unless I found a great price.
