10241 Tasting Notes
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
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.
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! :)
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!
