drank Raspberry Truffle by Butiki Teas
90 tasting notes

When I tried this hot, I enjoyed it but it wasn’t something I’d see myself craving very often. But I had a hunch that it would make the best raspberry iced tea ever. So I cold brewed the rest of my sample from TastyBrew and yep…best raspberry iced tea ever!

Ok I must confess that I haven’t actually compared it to others, so I’m probably being presumptuous, but I think we can agree that Butiki sets the bar pretty high, right? So even if it’s not THE best ever, it’s pretty damn delicious! The black base is perfectly balanced with sweet but natural raspberry flavor.

Now I’m wondering what I could spike this with to make the best raspberry iced tea cocktail ever. Ooh, maybe I could infuse the liquor with this tea and then add it in. Double the pleasure, double the fun? This experiment is calling my name. I need more asap!

Haha! I’m just like you, whatever I feel is great at the time I have it becomes «the best of…ever»! I get it, it just means you really like it :-) YOu remind me I have a bit left of this, I will cold brew to test your «experiment»!

Haha totally! I figure Butiki carries some of the best teas I’ve tried so far, so best ever can’t be that much of a stretch!

Yep, I have 1 oz of this cause I just got my order this past week. I will cold steep a couple of cups to see, because hot was not as raspberry as I expected.

I found the raspberry to be more subtle in the cold brew, which I liked, so you might not be as wowed as I was. Maybe you could sweeten it to make the flavor come out more? Or ooh add some frozen raspberries…that could be good…maybe I’ll do that next time!

Bio

I recently discovered loose leaf after a long and uninspiring relationship with teabags. I’ve been in love ever since (sorry bags, I just don’t feel that spark anymore).

Food is a passion for me and my love of scents and flavors has translated into an excitement for trying new teas. I’m trying to expand my palate with all different types, and currently my favorites are oolongs and greens.
