Yes yes yes. Be back soon!!

Ok, here I am. So, Kittenna sent me a sample of this and I loved it. I drank two steeps this afternoon at work. I am not going to sit here and pretend like I can discern all of the unique flavors within this tea, just know that I am not really a fan of straight teas, generically speaking, but I am going to order this next time I hit up Butiki.

My list just keeps growing. It was flavorful and roasty and golden and not at all boring or overly strong to drink. It was just what I needed at the end of my work day and I’m sure I will “need” it again.

Eta again…
I got 2 flavourful steeps out of 1 tsp of tea in a normal sized coffee mug, went for a third but it didn’t have enough flavour for this lady.

Merci Kittenna!! :)

I love tea. I love my baby daughter, my husband, my dog Wally, Netflix, shopping, and tea. Some other stuff too, but these are the most important!

Some favourites -

Butiki teas in general, I love how the flavours are subtle and not fake tasting and don’t overwhelm the tea base. Trust that I will be dramatically mourning the loss of this company!

Harney and Sons, Teavivre, Whispering Pines and Mariage Freres are some more tea companies I appreciate. Along with Davidstea as it was the ‘gateway drug’ to my tea addiction. Though I’m mostly over it now, I’ve definitely moved on from the artificially flavoured teas and am trying more quality straight teas!

My ultimate goal is to try as many French teas as possible – and to finally find a source in Canada for Mariage Freres so I can buy Wedding Imperial, and Black Orchid for sure.

I would like to try any Taiwanese Assams that exist in the world!

Also continuously on the hunt for Fauchon – La Naissance.

When I rate, it goes like this:

85 -100 = WIN! awesome, I love this and keep it on hand
70 – 85 = pretty darn good but I don’t NEED to own it
55 – 70 = not necessarily terrible but not a tea for me!
30 – 55 = missed the mark as far as I am concerned. Wouldn’t drink it willingly.
0 – 30 = I likely won’t rate this low very often, so if you see it, consider the tea a great big FAIL and probably disgusting.
