Another assam from Butiki that I really enjoy…imagine that! This is, of course, malty and smooth with a little fruity hint. A delicious treat.

Flavors: Cocoa

drank Shooting Starfruit by DAVIDsTEA

Mmm, this is so different from every other tea in my cupboard. I think I have only had star fruit once, and I did enjoy it. This tea reminds me of that vaguely, but it’s hard to tell because it was so long ago.
I cold brewed this for a little over 8 hours. It was delicious!

drank Hot Tropic by DAVIDsTEA

I cold brewed this last week as well, and I should have made some notes. But I don’t remember tasting any chocolate.
I thought there was too much going on, and it didn’t taste like a pina-colada. Too much hibiscus as well.

drank Sangria by DAVIDsTEA

I cold brewed this last week. I should have made some notes about it, because I don’t remember specifics, but this was fruity goodness. It would be good with some Arbor Mist! lol

800th tasting note!!!

For some reason, this tea reminds me of fond memories from my childhood. I can’t quite put my finger on the reason, but either way, it is wonderful!
Of course, the base is perfect, and pairs perfectly with coconut. I am not usually the biggest fan of banana in tea, but here it is delicious.
I really enjoyed this tea, the mellow flavours that aren’t “in your face” but meld together well. This has a relaxing effect, but energizing at the same time.

drank Red Queen Cupcake by Butiki Teas
1184 tasting notes

So, it sounds like I might be in the minority with this tea, because I did not like this as much as everyone else seems to. Or maybe I just did something horribly wrong. Or maybe it is just my dislike of coffee!! lol
Anyway, I definitely got the strawberry and light chocolate, but I wasn’t expecting the coffee flavour to be so strong. But it is possible that it just seems so strong to me. Anyway, with some sugar it turned into a delicious strawberry, coffee cupcake with tiny chocolate sprinkles. Or that is what I am picturing.

I am not rating this for now, so I can make sure that it isn’t user error.

I love coconut, and this tea definitely has some notes of coconut. It is very complex, with notes of vanilla, banana, floral, and a tiny hint of citrus. Rose isn’t my favourite flavour in teas though, so I kind of had that taste in the back of my mind the whole time. I think if I could get this tea without the rose, it would be amazing. I do really enjoy this tea though. I will be tying it chilled tomorrow as well.

drank Strawberry Cream by Zen Tea
1184 tasting notes

I cold brewed this earlier in the week. If I remember correctly, I think I prefer this hot brewed.
It seems that the cream flavour isn’t as pronounced as a cold brew.

The aroma of plum is floating around my kitchen, and it is lovely.
The taste is plum in the forefront, with brandy in the background. The cheesecake is in the aftertaste, but I don’t get that distinct “tang” that cheesecake makes me think of. I get more of a general creaminess.

Bio

Hello,
I am a nurse. I have numerous hobbies: reading, crocheting, crafting, card making, scrapbooking, photography, shopping, and of course drinking TEA!

I started drinking loose leaf tea in Dec. 2010 when I went into a DavidsTea for the first time and have been hooked ever since! My favourite is probably white tea, but I also love black and oolong. I also like a nice relaxing rooibos or herbal in the evening. On Sundays, I like to treat myself and make a tea latte.

My favourite flavours are nutty, vanilla, chocolate, jasmine, tropical, fruity, earl grey.
My dislikes are lavender, rose, hibiscus, banana, and straight green or overly vegetal teas.

I am admittedly fairly generous in my rating scale. Most of my teas I rate at 90 and above, and would re-stock these teas.
Anything under 90 I probably wouldn’t re-stock unless I found a great price.
