drank Pistachio Ice Cream by Butiki Teas
344 tasting notes

I quite enjoyed this tea it has enough balance between the natural flavours of the base tea and the flavouring and I quite like that the flavouring is not in your face.

To be quite honest I have really only had pistachio ice cream in Italy. Just like cassis and coconut is the flavour I think of when I remember France. Pistachio gelato, is forever linked to Italy for me. I ate a lot of it when I was there and it was generally the flavour that we used to judge the quality of a gelato stand. The best was the thick buttery ones that were not flourescent green.

I brewed this tea in accordance with reccomendations and ended up with a golden yelllow brew with a nutty and slightly spinachy smelling green tea, with a sweet,spicy, nutty scent, with notes of vanilla.

The flavouring has a suggestion of pistachio gelato but the florescent green kind not the thicker buttery nutty kind. There is a hint of sugar and ice cream the rich kind made with egg. The tea underneath, is sweet, slightly spicy , with enough of a spinachy vegetal note that gives it a lot of body. There is a nice subtle balance between flavours.

A really nice subtly sweet and spicy tea. Thanks to TastyBrew for sending me this generous sample!

I ordered an ounce of this tea while it was on sale. I liked it a lot! It’s really good with a spoonful of sugar.

I’m glad you love it! I’m not enjoying my second steep!

I meant I’m enjoying it! I need to turn off autocorrect on this tablet. It tends to change things without me noticing.

OMGsrsly

yyz, autocorrect can result in some seriously awkward conversations… :D
