85

Thank you to Stacy for a sample of this with my last order!

Given all the reviews and considering how much I love her Eggnog tea (another creamy Butiki offering), I was really looking forward to trying this and was hoping for the best.

Guess what, I was not let down!
It’s like liquid cantaloupe! What! Not even one of my favorite fruits but yum. The perfect creaminess to balance the melon, and just the right sweetness. I didn’t add anything to this!

It was delicate and lovely and another one I will probably add to my future order.
No idea if those flowers have a major taste but they sure make the dry blend look delightful and happy! This is a happy tea.

Going to have a resteep later before I toss the leaves.

Steeped as per the directions!

ETA I had my second steep of this and decided I probably wouldn’t order it, not because it isn’t tasty, but because it really does taste like cantaloupe! And I’m just not that big of a fan of that melon :)

That’s the reason I probably won’t ever try it too. I just don’t like canteloupe.

Haha, I think I sent some of this to you :P Oh well!

Hello!

I love tea. I love my baby daughter, my husband, my dog Wally, Netflix, shopping, and tea. Some other stuff too, but these are the most important!

Some favourites -

Butiki teas in general, I love how the flavours are subtle and not fake tasting and don’t overwhelm the tea base. Trust that I will be dramatically mourning the loss of this company!

Harney and Sons, Teavivre, Whispering Pines and Mariage Freres are some more tea companies I appreciate. Along with Davidstea as it was the ‘gateway drug’ to my tea addiction. Though I’m mostly over it now, I’ve definitely moved on from the artificially flavoured teas and am trying more quality straight teas!

My ultimate goal is to try as many French teas as possible – and to finally find a source in Canada for Mariage Freres so I can buy Wedding Imperial, and Black Orchid for sure.

I would like to try any Taiwanese Assams that exist in the world!

Also continuously on the hunt for Fauchon – La Naissance.

When I rate, it goes like this:

85 -100 = WIN! awesome, I love this and keep it on hand
70 – 85 = pretty darn good but I don’t NEED to own it
55 – 70 = not necessarily terrible but not a tea for me!
30 – 55 = missed the mark as far as I am concerned. Wouldn’t drink it willingly.
0 – 30 = I likely won’t rate this low very often, so if you see it, consider the tea a great big FAIL and probably disgusting.
