drank Pumpkin Creme Brulee by Butiki Teas
10940 tasting notes

Mmmmm I didn’t get much tea today – in part from being busy and also from being paranoid about another spill at work lol had this when I got home after walking part way home in a skirt and bare legs lol yeah I’m a dumbass but whatever. The buses were really dragging today so it got me home a good 20 mins earlier and I didn’t have to fight to get on the bus :)

This tea makes me happy…though I think from a pumpkin tea perspective I do like the Della terra a smidge better. But this tea is also different. The spices are wonderfully strong and there’s that burnt brûlée taste that is really interesting.

drank Chai by Red Blossom Tea Company

Mmmm so i had this one this morning. After the incident with the tea yesterday I’m not confident in my ability to handle an open mug of tea at work anymore. Soooo the teas i’m drinking now have to be acceptable in larger quantites so i can put them in my sealed travel mug lol

I enjoy this chai quite a bit – it’s a little different than my others without being overly spicey.

drank Mocha Matcha by Matcha Outlet
10940 tasting notes

So i finally found the perfect way to make this for my morning smoothie. 2 parts this and 1 part each of coffee matcha and cheesecake matcha. The cheesecake adds to the creaminess and the coffee cuts through the sweet of the mocha. So technically i guess this is a custom creation but whatever! I muck about with most of my matcha in some form anyway. I think the next time i order mocha though, i’ll either drop a flavouring level or just order chocolate matcha and make my own mocha with coffee and chocolate. :)

I really needed this this morning. I am usually at work at 7-7:15 and let me tell you, i got out of bed at 7:10. sooooyeaaaah. Looking forward to maybe being able to sleep in this weekend.

drank Tangerine Creamsicle by Butiki Teas

Cold brew sip down! Had this hot as well and I’ve gotta say I’m a set fan of this cold brewed with just a BIT of sweetener. It’s got sweet and cream and makes me happy!

Oolongs….someday I will find one that doesn’t have that taste that I dislike. This one is close. Ill go through the multiple steepings to give this a full shot, but I don’t think ill likely be stocking this up.

I do like the initial taste of this one though.

Edit: I’m beginning to think it’s the smell even more than the taste… later steepings of this aren’t half bad.

Someone on Steepster (wish I could remember who) called the taste latex surgical gloves. Now I think latex everytime I sip TGY. lol

Bonnie

What are you looking for? Roasty, floral, buttery?

Sil

Bonnie…with oolongs I’m never looking for anything lol I prefer my blacks but I’m happy to keep trying. There’s a taste/smell to oolongs that makes me scrunch up my nose every time. I think this straight oolong is the first I haven’t hated right away. Batik is maple pecan oolong I can handle too

Do not like this one. It’s not very strawberry and the chocolate is mediocre.

drank Forest Berry Silver Needle by 52teas

Farewell tea sample! You were wonderful while I had you. This was a really delicious light berry tea. I’m really glad I got the chance to try it.

Sip down!

Babble

Ooh this one sounds nice!

Sil

Rachel it was. Sadly, as with most 52 teas..it came, it’s gone. It’s part of the reason I’m less inclined to order from them these days…if i REALLY love a tea, i can’t get more by the time i gets to canada 90% of the time. I’ll stick to his permanent collection

Babble

That’s a good point, although he seems to be reblending the really popular stuff.

I’m jealous you live so close to David’s Tea though.. LOL.

Sil

@ rachel – I don’t particularly LIKE DT so i’ll trade you fast shipping for a DT location near you haha

Babble

I guess DT always seems to be doing cooler things than Teavana. Maybe it’s just a typical American thing where I want what I can’t have.

I’m glad verdants samples generally have enough for two sittings as i’m fairly confident that I’m not going to be doing this justice at work today. I just wanted something today that wasn’t a flavoured tea but that had flavour..if that makes sense. I prefer the Mi Lan Black and Laoshan black from verdant but this is still a really enjoyable tea.

I can’t wrap my brain around the flavours that i’m tasting. it’s not really a malty tea..it’s sweet and yet not but yet is. I’m hoping in later steepings i’ll be able to discern more of the honey but right now i’m digging the woody, breadlike taste going on. I don’t catch the pepper that others do though.

drank Kenya Kangaita by Butiki Teas

I added this to my shopping cart a few weeks back on a whim, mostly because I’d like to get around to trying all of Stacy’s blacks and because Stacy was kind enough to let me add to my order to take advantage of her free pitachio ice cream promo. I ordered the summer sampler when she was out of pistachio ice cream so this was a chance to try it outside of a sample size. (Don’t get me wrong, i LOVE stacy’s samples! but they usually just leave me wishing i had more lol)

Anyway this is a mouth full of tea! It has a very full body, no stringency and like others have mentioned its earthy and roasty and really nice. I will enjoy drinking this tea down though i’m not sure it will become my first black for the morning tea. We shall see though. I’m enjoying this quite a bit so far.

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.
