Oh yes, my Butikis finally arrived! I was so excited for all my teas, but especially this one.

The dry scent was so decadent and creamy. Always an excellent starting point. The steeped cup still has that delicious scent, but more diminished.

The flavour is wonderful. It’s not too sweet, the cream flavour is really there, and the base lends an earthy flavour that balances the tea nicely.

Happy 2014!
Which also means, a couple weeks ago I passed my one year anniversary with Steepster. Woot!

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), science, travel, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs I’m working on at a snail’s pace, but so far I’m not loving them. Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
