drank Intensely Buttermint by Twinings
1495 tasting notes

I don’t know how to tell you guys this, so I’ll just say it: this is one of the best teas on the planet. It tastes EXACTLY like a buttermint, like you’d expect one to taste. Creamy, dreamy vanilla and a hint of refreshing mint at the end. Like, well, a buttermint. Like a hard candy, but in liquid form… I’ve already had six cups today. It’s that good.

Flavors: Butter, Creamy, Mint, Vanilla

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more 1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML
Mikumofu

“Intensely” is a word you don’t often find in a tea name, looks like it’s accurate!

Oh that sounds amazing. I’m not allowed to order more tea but here I am poking around Britsuperstore, contemplating an order.

I doubt I’ll have enough left over to share at this point, but I may need to grab another box.. so I might be able to send over a few, depending. Mikumofu, their entire Intensely series is actually quite good! Although, I didn’t have any of the chamomile ones, so perhaps they aren’t as amazing.

Mikumofu

This still sounds like the best Intensely of the lot! :)

Maddy Barone

That really sounds good!

Sil

Oh wow….

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.

Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. I now travel full time with only two carryon bags to my name. One quarter of those bags are tea.

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.

If I have enough, I’m happy to share. If I’m in your area, I’d love to swap, meet for tea, and explore together.

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

What kinds of teas do I normally like?

YES: flavored teas, fruity, dessert, chai, and spicy (REALLY spicy).

A FONDNESS FOR: all white teas, malty black teas, any herbal or medicinal teas, strange/weird teas you can only get in one place.

ALLERGIC TO: strawberries, lavender

DISLIKES: any added sugars, grains, lapsang souchong, and overly floral teas – I might enjoy a Jasmine Green every once in a while, but unless it’s a creamy floral tea (think roses in a chai, or the smoothness of a floral note in a French tea), I’ll likely pass. Earl Greys are a hit or miss with me; heavy on the cream or fruit notes and I might like it, heavy on the blergamot and I definitely won’t.
