I don’t have the words or the computer to do this justice. Writing on an iPad just doesn’t work for some things. First steep, western style as I have no gaiwan :( and I’m looking forward to the next steeps. I’ll try and write more later to do this justice.

Received this tea as a sample from The Persimmon Tree and I’m not sure what to make of it. There isn’t much in the way of orange going on here – there’s a lot of rooibos. It’s not a bad tea, but it’s not really what I’d expect from an Orange tea. I’ll have to try this again and see if it was the water temp or timing.

In another note…it would be nice to consolidate the teas for this company under one listing – there are two going on. And I’m not sure what’s up with the picture I uploaded…tried with both the URL and uploading an image and it’s always a blurry mess once it’s on the site. sigh

That is a problem with a lot of companies on here Red Leaf Tea included and many others! Its frustrating! I wish there was a way as well.

drank Strawberry Oolong by Butiki Teas

After multiple attempts at drinking this tea I’ve finally decided that it’s just not the tea for me. However, I won’t hold that against the tea. It is a GREAT tea. The balance of flavors, the smell…everything about the tea says love me! But I don’t. So I will leave this tea for others (Helena) but I’m happy that I got a chance to try it and still think that this is a tea many will enjoy.

Helena

nah I would rather have the peach :D

Sil

lol I’ll have to give the peach a try Helena. It might juts be that oolongs are not me thing. I think I’ll need another order to find out grin

Helena

I thought you tried the peach oolong already and had to experiment with temp and steeping or I’m confusing you with someone else :D I find the strawberry is a bit much for me. The grape was interesting but so far the peach is the best of the 3. You can always try Citron Oolong from David’s Tea it tastes mostly like lemon :D

mmmm I really like how the flavours in this one blend together without overpowering one another. While I’d normally have this later in the day, I decided to start my day out with it for a treat. It’s my second last day of this job and today is day 3 with the personal trainer so I need a little pick me up! :)

drank Mango Lassi by Butiki Teas

So I really need to try this iced sometime. I seriously love this tea – though it always throws me for a loop on the first sip because it’s hot and because of the taste I’m expecting a cold smoothy type drink :) I really think Stacy nailed this one and for anyone who enjoys mangos it’s a keeper.

This is even better cold!

So i have to say I really enjoy this one – better than the Mandarin Silk by a bunch. The rooibos isn’t overpowering the tea so I’m still enoying it and the vanilla isn’t too strong. Instead it just adds to the creamy factor. I’d order this one again to have as a nice treat in the evening.

drank Tangerine Creamsicle by Butiki Teas

mmmm… I haven’t had a chance to get to DT’s yet at the suggestion of The Tea Fairy for my sore throat so this is my morning choice. It’s a bit of a grey day here in Toronto, and combined with feeling under the weather i’m up to my usual tricks to not let the depressing outside ruin my mood. I wanted something that not only tasted wonderful but would give me something to smell that would put a smile on my face. This tea certainly does that! It boggles my mind every time i drink it just how wonderful the flavouring is in this. While I know their cantelope and cream is out winning award, I have to say that this Butiki Tea is also one of my favs.

Not an ideal set up at work for tea as I’m mid move to a new job but it’ll have to do. Four more days left! Bit of a sore throat today and a session with the trainer this evening so I’m trying to stave off any chance of getting sick. Still loving the vanilla flavor as it’s not too overpowering. Mostly this is just the tea I needed to start off my crazy week!

Helena

awww.. sorry to hear you have a sore throat I hope you feel better soon :D

Azzrian

Get better soon Sil!

Sil

Thanks Azz!

TheTeaFairy

Sil, since you probably have access to a DT’s, you should keep some Licorice Twist around for sore throat, I rarely take medication and this tea has proven to be very effective for me…but it all depends if you can tolerate licorice, I know some poeple just can’t! Prends soin de toi:-)

Sil

Merci bien tea fairy! I’ll try that out – there’s one around the corner from work I can stop into tomorrow ;) I looooooooove licorice :)

TheTeaFairy

Great:-) But I have to warn you, it’s very bold! There’s a lot going on, (read the ingredients on their website) but I like it and it woks for me!

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling as well!

Most of that is on hold these days though, including tea drinking like I used to as I have a new little one who eats up all my spare time.
