Sad sipdown….but oh was this ever good today. I might need to bargain with OMGsrsly on getting more of this….

Backlog-this one was strange. And I think a bit too floral. I’ll have to do a more through review when I try this again, which may not be right away.

Definitely getting honey and caramel notes with this one today, over a light grassy note.

Liquid gold in a cup this morning…

Think I oversteeped or ocerleafed this one today, as it was a bit astringent. But it is still pretty good. I do think that ATR Brioche is better than this though. That’s ok, as there are plenty of stellar Butiki teas about, including one I hope to make as a custom.

Having this due to tummy issues and not wanting caffeine in the evening. It’s definitely minty, and there is a hint of rooibos, but no throat weirdness, but also no chocolate unless you consider the vanilla like flavour like white chocolate.

I’ll probably finish the sample from Amoda, but it isn’t something I’m likely to buy again. I have other similar options here.


Hope you tummy feels better…When I get a stomach or belly ache, I always have straight pu’erh , a mini tuocha most of the time, it’s amazing how good it does…

Finished the last of this today and it was good, though not as good as in the past. I’m not sure if it was simply the time/age of the actual tea, or just me not remembering how it was or whatever. Glad I got some of it when it was reduced.

Having this as my evening tea, as it’s a caffeine free blend. Part of my New Years resolution is to reduce my caffeine and increase my water intake. It’s going ok so far, only I have very few non-caffeine blends to choose from, and I dislike a lot of herbals. I’m also not a huge rooibos fan, though I seem ok in this and the other DT blends.

I do definitely get nut, with sweet apple and spice.

I have just a little left. I do like this, so I might order more of this for my evening drinking, but I think I might prefer the straight honeybush from Champagne Cider. I’m not sure if I like this as much as I used to, so I have dropped the rating, but I do still like it.

Still yummy…good steeping parameters today. So tasty. See my previous notes.

I’ve forgotten about 3 times in the last 2 hours what tea I had today, to write a note about. Forced myself to start my note before I forgot it again. This is in no way an indication of how I feel about the tea, but probably more to that I’m super tired tonight.

That said, this steep today was not nearly as nutty as they have been before. I’m not sure if I under-leafed or what.

I do like this tea, but my life won’t end if this tea is not made permanent.

I generally like a lot of tea. I do find I have a preference for flavored over unflavoured, but I do love a good straight tea as well.

Likes are too hard, since there are a lot. Dislikes are easier, so here they are…

Hibiscus. Blech. I can tolerate a little, depending on the brew, like Berry Good from Davids and Ruby Pie from Butiki…but in general, it’s too tart and too strong for me.

Licorice. Anything that remotely resembles licorice is out too, so that includes fennel and anise. Yuck, yuck, yuck.

Florals. I’m cool with petals in the tea to make them look pretty (except rose), and I’m cool with teas like oolongs having a floral note, but strong florals can give me migraines. Rose and jasmine are the biggest offenders. This is one where it can vary on the blend, as I can handle Teavivre’s Peach Jasmine Dragon Pearl tea because there is very little jasmine actually detectable in it.

Rooibos is hit or miss. I can do some, but not others. I handle green better than red, and honeybush better than rooibos.

My ratings don’t have a particular scale or method, and may on occasion contradict themselves, but I’m honestly not fussed about that. Sometimes I don’t even rate at all.

Um, I have an extensive wishlist. It is both a list of things I want to get again, and things I want to try. If you are sending me something, and you want to know which is which, I’ll tell you via PM.

Yes, I do trades…usually on request though. See something you want to try in my cupboard? Just shoot me a message and I’ll see what I can do!

Uh, guess that’s it.
