drank Tamarind Pop by Butiki Teas
686 tasting notes

This is such an interesting tea. I’m glad I snagged more from Anna to test it out a bit more before committing to buying any myself.

It’s really quite tasty, with caramel and cream notes, and something else that must be associated with tamarind. Interesting indeed.

Thanks Anna!

This is one of the teas that caught my eye when I was browsing Butiki. I’m glad it’s good, I’ll have to try it. :D

I have no idea what Tamarind is supposed to taste like but you make this sound so good :)

Its kind of sharp, sour and sweet at the same time. Though I haven’t consciously eaten it since I was in India.

I haven’t had a real-life tamarind, but my friend wanted to try this one, so we each got a sample with our last order. It’s quite tasty.

I agree with yyz. If you’ve had Pad Thai before, it’s a key ingredient in the sauce.

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.
