Now this is what I’m talking about. I just got settled in for a day full of studying for my one last exam tomorrow, and this tea is perfection. The chocolate notes never cease to amaze me. I’m so happy to have a cupboard full of Butiki teas again (note to self: never go so long between orders again).

Also, I just placed an AE order and I ended up saving just as much as I spent. Best.

Is AE a tea company I’ve never heard of or is American Eagle having a sale? Haha

Yes, nothing like that satisfying cup of a tea you’ve already established you love!

Courtney

Haha, American Eagle. Sorry, perhaps I should’ve clarified. They are having a sale and I had a discount code in my email. Do you ever just have things in your online cart for ages – adding more and taking off a few things, until finally the discounts are good enough?

This tea is such a delight.

Oh yes, been there!!

I can’t remember if I tried this tea or not, I get two of them mixed up all the time

Courtney

I checked the notes and it looks as though you did haha. This one is amazing! And Taiwanese Wild Mountain Black is to die for. I saw someone described the TWMB as waffle-like a few months back and that is bang on.

Oh I think the TWMB is the one I always get it mixed up with, lol
I might order both and just do a huge order when the time comes!

Courtney

That sounds best haha. I always try to hit the free shipping threshold. :)

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.
