drank Zhen Qu by Butiki Teas

Oh this is so good. I picked up on honey notes right in the first sip. The malty chocolate notes develop at the end of the sip. I noticed some nutty notes in the aftertaste and wasn’t sure exactly what kind of nutty notes I was picking up on. When I looked at the description, I saw pecan and decided yes, that is the note I am tasting.
I find myself being drawn to straight teas more and more.

drank Lychee Oolong by Butiki Teas
1150 tasting notes

After a few days of not having any loose leaf teas and only drinking Keurig chai lattes, I am happy to have loose tea again.

I have never had lychee before but this is delicious. The first couple of sips of this tea were interesting. Tasting something for the first time is always exciting. As I continued to sip, I enjoyed it more and more. There are lots of fruity notes (which I assume to be the lychee). The floral notes are in the background and are subtle, but I find that they add depth to the tea.
Resteeped for 4.5 minutes was just as delicious, and I found that the floral notes came out a little more.

This was on my shopping list for a long time, so I am glad that I finally ordered it.

drank Cocomint Cream by DAVIDsTEA

I thought this would be a Christmas-like tea. I shared this pot with my in-laws. It was creamy and minty. I didn’t get too much blackberry, but I did get notes of Apple.
Refreshing and great to have after eating ALOT!

Merry Christmas to my Steepster family!
I shared a Christmas morning pot of this tea with my family. I just love watching children open Christmas presents.
This tea was comforting and perked me up for a fun filled day of family time.
I thought this tea was fairly enjoyable but I don’t think that I would repurchase it.

Yum! This tastes like Christmas to me. Vanilla, orange, and sparkles!

I shared a pot of this with my family last night and it was buttery scones. Family and tea….is there anything better!
I enjoyed this honeybush.

That sounds really interesting – how long ago did this one come out? And I feel you on the family thing – all my family is in Regina with the exception of an Aunt (whom I’m seeing tomorrow). So, I’m all alone today! But, it’s gonna be nice to not have Christmas entirely to myself. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

You can celebrate Christmas with your Steepster family!
Merry Christmas! To everyone!

drank Banana Nut Bread by DAVIDsTEA
1150 tasting notes

I remembered from last time that I brewed this to use a tea bag, otherwise the infuser gets too oily and gross. This was ok tonight, sweet enough for me to enjoy.
Actually, I can’t believe that I still have this, it is getting old. It is really getting time to do some serious sipdowns. Now, if only I could stop ordering more tea for awhile so I could drink up some older teas!

drank Candy Corn Black Tea by 52teas
1150 tasting notes

Hmm….I wasn’t expecting so many black teas in this box, I thought there would be more variety. There has only been one honeybush, and all the rest have been blacks. Oh well, I am liking the surprise of scratching the bag to find out what the tea of the day is!

I didn’t expect this tea to have such large candy corn candies. I don’t mind candy corn, but I don’t think that I would go out of my way to find it or anything. This tea though, is pretty good. It is sweet and fun. Too bad I didn’t have this on Halloween. I don’t think I would order a bag though.

drank Butter Rum by 52teas
1150 tasting notes

Backlog from yesterday
This tea is quite enjoyable, I like the addition of the vanilla to add that smoothness. It does taste like rum candy, but not that sweet. As much as I did enjoy this tea, I think I enjoy DavidsTea version of the Buttered Rum better.

drank White Rhino by Butiki Teas
1150 tasting notes

Oh boy, this tea puts my cupboard at over 200 teas, and I haven’t even added all the teas from my Butiki order, and none from my Verdant order! NO NEW ORDERS for a long time…….I hope.

Backlog from yesterday. This tea is delicious. I get how it has some similar notes to black tea. I really enjoy the malty, fruity, sweet notes of caramel that I get from this tea. I was a little scared to use boiling water, but it definitely does the trick.
The resteep was also enjoyable.

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.
