The smoke is still coming through clearly. Even before I sip it, I can smell the smokiness. I’m fairly sensitive to smoke, but not a single note mentions smoke as of yet. Le sigh.

The few sips I did have were smooth and had that lovely Assam maltiness, which was delightful.

Thank goodness Stacy has plenty of other amazing teas. :)

P.S. I managed 2 samples sipdowns yesterday (Glenburn Estate Darjeeling and Caramel Popcorn matcha.

Awe…so sorry it’s smoky to you:(

Butiki Teas

How interesting! I’ve never noticed any smoke and I am particularly sensitive to smoke as well. :) I will have to try it next time looking for smoke notes.

I plan on maybe trying again in a few more days, because I’m thinking it must be me. I knew you would have something in the description if there actually was something there. Bizarre!

Butiki Teas

Courtney-Well, it is pretty subjective. :)

Profile

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 dark chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

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