Re: “Absinthe Any Objections

Pacifique is excellent absinthe. Voyager is excellent gin in the modern style (and not the London Dry style). Sorry Robert, but London Dry style is actually the more "real" gin in terms of historical perspective, and juniper is most definitely a botanical. Just as vodka is the liquor for people who don't like liquor, modern gin is the gin for people who don't like gin!

Re: “Absinthe Any Objections

This place is AWESOME!! And they make "Real" gin as well, from real plant/ botanicals... NOT the gin that tastes like distilled pine trees. My hats off to this small batch local distillery. Good work, we will be back!!

Re: “West Coast Berry Vodkas

A Liqueur and Vodka are two very different spirits with different tastes. If you're going to compare liqueur's and vodkas, why leave out Skip Rock Distilling's blackberry and raspberry liqueur from Snohomish, WA?

Re: “West Coast Berry Vodkas

Wild Roots Vodka is my new favorite vodka. On a hot summer day, a little lemonade and raspberry Wild Roots is so refreshing. Hard to find, but once you get a liquor store to stock it, buy multiple bottles before it runs out!

Re: “West Coast Berry Vodkas

This Blackberry Liqueur is not a vodka, not sure it was reviewed as a vodka?

This is high proof Berry Liqueur, it's supposed to be sweet, required by TTB regulations.

It has a 98 rating with the Beverage Testing Institute.

Re: “It's a Tea Party: Three New Boise Tea Houses Open

Can't wait to try all these tea houses, they sound amazing. My husband and I just went to one- Snake River Tea and it was a delicious and educating experience! We tried kombucha fir the first time and fell in love with their homemade kombucha. We also tried their peach Melba tisane blend iced and it was refreshing and yummy!

Re: “It's a Tea Party: Three New Boise Tea Houses Open

I've been meeting clients at Joyful Tea lately, there's free WiFi in Boise International Market & usually a table or two free to have conversation. I'm thrilled! My NP advised I get off the 3cup coffee train, Tea is alkalinizing so better for my system... Thank you for a super kind spot to gather & enjoy tea- ya, who needs sugar- when you have great tea!

Re: “It's a Tea Party: Three New Boise Tea Houses Open

I've really enjoyed my stops at Joyful Tea. Terry has been really helpful to this tea noob.

Re: “It's a Tea Party: Three New Boise Tea Houses Open

Joyful Tea is absolutely fantastic! My husband & I stop to have dinner at any one of three ethnic restaurants & grab a pot of tea at Joyful Tea. Terry & Karen simply ask what you are having for dinner & they provide a tea to complement your meal.

Re: “It's a Tea Party: Three New Boise Tea Houses Open

I agree with everything that Goodmusic71 wrote except the location. JoyfulTea is near the intersection of Franklin and Curtis.

Re: “It's a Tea Party: Three New Boise Tea Houses Open

Joyful Tea is just a wonderful experience! Their sole focus is TEA and Terry knows tea and can explain any aspect of it more clearly than anyone I've ever met anywhere. Do yourself a favor and check them out the next time you're over near Franklin and Cole!

'Leaf Teahouse' is nice! Best thing to occupy the space it's in for as long as I can remember.

Re: “Flavored Tequilas

Antiguo Tequila straight up, Don Julio is a good Tequila also, too good to mix.
I almost bought a bottle of Mexican Moonshine today. I first heard of it in Yelapa, it was called Raicilla years ago but if you happen to be there they know what Raicilla is! I guess they decided to bottle it and make a profit from it!

Re: “Amore for Amaros

Amaro Montenegro is also a very nice introduction to amaros. Great bottle too!
