Yum. As always, Butiki is amazing.
I was so excited for this tea in my most recent order and it did not disappoint. The black base tastes like a breakfast tea – which I love. And the banana flavour is clearly there, yet subtle, and not at all overpowering. The walnuts are a nice taste in the background.
Unfortunately my stomach is upset today, so I chose to just have some straight peppermint tea.
This tea is fresh and clear. One sniff of my tin full of peppermint nearly burnt my nose hairs off it’s so strong haha. I’m hoping this will calm down my stomach so I can fully enjoy the rest of my Sunday.
Mmm honeybush. I’ve only tried flavoured honeybush teas thus far and I’ve really enjoyed all them. Some more than others. I’m so excited I discovered honeybush since I don’t care for the taste of rooibos at all. I was surprised to discover honeybush is actually much more popular than rooibos in South Africa.
Also, completely not tea related I got an awesome new sweater at Lululemon and the rule I have is if I get something new, something from my collection has to go to pay for it. It was a difficult choice today. Ridiculous, I know.
This vanilla black was pretty good. There was a nice creaminess and a not really subtle, but not overwhelming vanilla taste as well. I think I may prefer Vanilla Comoro to this, but only by a little bit.
Thanks Cavocorax :)
Thanks Cavocorax for this one.
This is really reminding me of David’s Santa’s Secret. There is something different though. I’m thinking it’s ever so slightly creamier? I could be wrong. I’d have to try them side-by-side to know for sure.
It’s not too chocolatey, which is lovely. And the mint really comes out in the end. I’m enjoying my cup of this one.
I just don’t think I’m a fan of strawberry teas, but as far as this tea went it was quite delicious. They really got both the strawberry flavour, and especially the cream flavour down. The black base added a nice touch – it wasn’t overpowering at all and balanced the flavours out well.
Thanks Cavovorax :)
Well this is delicious.
I’m enjoying the second steep of this this morning. I really don’t know how they do it. This tea nailed the rhubarb and custard flavour. The rhubarb adds a nice tartness and the custard adds a subtle creaminess. This is nothing short of amazing.
Thanks Cavocorax for this one :)
There’s definitely an ice cream flavour here and a strawberry flavour as well. The black base I’m not really loving, as happens with a lot of Della Terra’s black teas. I’m enjoying this cup enough to try another steep though.
Thanks Cavocorax for this and ALL the other AWESOME teas you sent :)
This tea is very clearly apple. It smells like apple and tastes like apple. I’m impressed. It’s almost apple cider-like. It makes me feel like it’s autumn as I’m drinking it. Yum.
This tea is fascinating. I just received it in the mail yesterday so perhaps I should’ve waited a bit longer to try it? I also don’t think I’ve come even close to perfecting being able to taste the flavours through the honeybush base, but I’m working on it.
I’m getting a subtle creaminess from the marshmallow root and mostly a strawberry taste aside from that. I’m not completely sure how I feel about the taste. I think I’ll let it sit out a few more days before I try again.
