drank Citrus Dream by Butiki Teas
450 tasting notes

Thank you for the generous samples and the speedy shipping, Stacy! I ordered from Butiki back in the beginning of November, when all of those horrible events happened. Unlike the amazing service I received, I was extremely slow on getting to my parcel; it actually became a Christmas gift.. Anyways, I cannot express enough how impressed I was with everything. I’m a nervous shopper so it meant a lot!

Chamomile is one of those things that I go to when I want stomach equivalent to a warm blanket hug- does that sound strange? These peculiar smelling yellow flowers are my go to herb for sleep and stress related troubles. I can’t describe what chamomile tastes like but it can be sweet, smooth, soft, warm, and a tad creamy in a mild floral way.. that’s on the vague side.

The fruity tart ingredients, particularly the goji berries, allured me to this particular blend. It was the sweet and sour creamy profile that won me over. I think I’m detecting mostly apple flavour and goji berries, with shades of citrus. The tartness is subtle in a fresh juicy manner. Clean and comforting- what more could I ask for before going to bed for the night after a long day? The fruit and floral notes are impressively full despite my being economic on the leaf measurement.

I think this just nabbed the spot for my favourite chamomile blend. I’m glad I was able to get a sample of this! Already thinking about the amount I should buy and the theoretical pretty tin I will put it in.

Profile

Bio

I started my Steepster loose leaf adventure back in 2012. I guess I can’t say I’m completely new, but I still view oolong as a magical, extraterrestrial creature that unfurls in water.

My tea preferences have changed a lot since joining here. I swore I’d never love black teas, and now they make up some of my favourites, both flavoured and unflavoured. I prefer my green and oolong teas buttery and roasted.

A good Silver Needle is my desert island tea.
