Hmm.

I wanted to love this, it smelled really good in the bag and the description sounds amazing….I just wish all the flavours in the brewed tea were stronger.

It underwhelmed me. It smelled so juicy and lush, but the taste was like a hint of strawberry. I didn’t really notice the ginger. It didn’t taste like fake strawberry, which is great, but I just wish everything was like 25% more potent.

I glad I don’t love it, because it’s one less to go on my wishlist!

I have some more to try again later though!
Thank you to OMGSRSLY for sending some my way!

I’m with you on this one. Probably best for the wallet, since I love nearly all the Butikis I try haha!

OMGsrsly

I actually like that the flavour is so mild. :) More for me!

Amariel

I love this one. Like, OMG so much.

And I’m on team whatshesaid/Courtney – I feel almost equally excited to be able to say a tea isn’t for me, as I am when I find a 90+ tea. It feels like I’m making progress!

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.
