drank Nutmeg Cream by Butiki Teas
1455 tasting notes

I’m confused by this one. My first Amoda box, specifically to enjoy these three specially made teas by Butiki. This one was first I grabbed this morning (3pm morning for me!) and it smells divine.

Steeped, it’s a bit strange. The mouthfeel is like granular nutmeg. It tastes lovely – like a creamy, nutmeg-heavy eggnog, and the black base is very apparent. It’s obviously well made and carefully crafted, there’s just something in it that’s making my stomach rebel. Perhaps I need to eat something substantial.

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Now, it’s purge time. Time to gather what’s needed and let go of the rest. Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more. And so, I’m happy to share (anytime!) and will occasionally desire small amounts of tea for swaps, just to try.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, and work (dating columnist and consultant).

No-can-do: lavender, overly floral (French florals, or florals that are creamy rather than, well, floral work well!), sugar, Splenda, all grains.

Love: fruity, dessert, chai, spicy, all types of tea.
