1020 Tasting Notes
It’s funny, I kind of mostly bought this at the time because my friends were all buying up the Mother’s Day promotional teas and I figured I’d better grab one as well. A few weeks down the track and this has become the herbal I turn to lately! Sweet and delicious and full of awesome complementary flavours. I’m glad I got sent a second box for free, lucky lucky!
Oops, I seem to have missed the mark on this one.
I gotta have a think about this.
This is the third guayusa I’ve tried—not just from Butiki, but in my life. The first was Blackberry Lime (pretty good) and the second was Good Morning Sunshine (awesome) but I’ve either hit a guayusa wall today after having two cups of GMS before trying this, or Tangerine Creamsicle and I just aren’t gonna be friends.
Thing is, I was super excited to try it because the dry leaf SMELLS so good! It’s the final flavour and the aftertaste that is rubbing me the wrong way here. I think it’s the cream flavour? Maybe? I don’t know? Maybe it’s true guayusa flavour? Adding some sugar definitely helped mute that particular flavour, so that could be what saves my feelings on this blend in the long run, but I don’t know when I’ll be up for trying it again with so many other delights in my cupboard.
Welcome to Zombieland, population Memily.
Urrrrgh I am too old to go out drinking until 3am when I need to work at 9am. Just kidding, I am the perfect age to do that, but gosh I wish I hadn’t.
Good thing this tea is near perfect for what I need right now. The cup of coffee I had first made me want to vomit but this is zesty perfection.
