599 Tasting Notes
This smelled very apricot-y.
Taste: this is strongly apricot, but also very earthy from the guayusa. It is fairly sweet. The earthiness is fairly strong, but it is a nice flavour.
I am certainly feeling energized after drinking it!
So excited for this tea!! After so many raving reviews, I was concerned that it would let me down. I was curious about the creamy notes everyone was talking about. So here we go!
Colour: smooth light yellow
Aroma: amazingly creamy and pure cantaloupe
Taste: Wow! This is delicious. So creamy and sweet cantaloupe. A full mouth feel. This is so silky and smooth, I felt full after I drank it like I had just had a huge bowl of fresh cantaloupe. I am not sure if I have ever had such a creamy tea. This certainly does not let me down, it deserves raving reviews!
2nd steep: 90degrees, 4minutes, less creamy and more melon, still delicious!
I put the leaves in a mug to cold brew, I will see how that goes tomorrow!
Cold brewed of course!
This was a nice light sweet mango tea. The flavour was good but I wish that it would have been a little bit stronger. I will certainly enjoy the rest of this!
This is my first Butiki order, I was so excited to receive this today in the mail that I tore into it immediately and started my kettle!
Thank you so much Stacy. I didn’t even ask for this sample, so I was surprised to find it in my package! It caught my eye right away, those chocolate chips with real raspberry chunks!
Colour: nice amber brown
Taste: creamy light dark chocolate with light raspberry. So delicious. This tastes really “natural” if that makes sense.
I can tell right now that I am really going to like Butiki teas!
This time, I diluted this tea with a little bit of silver needles and it was better. It was a little too strong un-diluted.
This is ok, but I wouldn’t re-stock.
I am anxiously waiting for my next Teavivre samples, so I decided to drink my favourite of their teas today, this is still my free sample I recieved in march.
I am upping the rating to 100 because I love this tea so much! So smooth, sweet, not overly perfumey. And just what I needed on this dreary rainy day.
So soothing and relaxing…..going for a resteep now!……….sigh
Edit- I cold brewed the 3rd steeping of this tea for about 8 hours. This infusion was sweet and delicious with lots of jasmine still present. I am very happy about this!
Pretty standard mint taste, probably similar to bagged blends.
Kinda bland and not as strong or sweet as other peppermints.
Like other Bulk Barn teas, this is very cheap, so it is definitely worth the price. And probably cheaper than bagged varieties.
Cold brewed as usual. This was pretty underwhelming. It tastes like pear but I am mostly getting an astringent grassy taste. Too bad, because I find pears very refreshing for the summer.
As much as I don’t like to, I might have to add sweetener to this.
I am not sure why I am just reviewing this now, but anyway, here goes. I can’t really say anything about this tea that others have not said already. It is a cross between Kanpe and Forever Nuts. Nutty, with a little hint of fruity and tartness.
I find that it tastes a little artificial though.
WOW 200th tasting note!!
Cold brewed as usual.
I am definitely getting the bubblegum note that others mentioned here.
As far as fruit goes, I am mostly tasting the pineapple, passion fruit and pear. It is fairly sweet.
I like this but it certainly won’t be a favourite.
