A busy day requires a very large pot of tea, especially since this is my first of the day. To start with I had work and afterwards I ended up in the hairdressers for over three hours (my mum had her hair dyed before our holiday), so my desperation for tea has grown and grown throughout the whole day.

In raw form this tea has large pieces of dried peach amongst it’s dark brown leaves. Also something green and finely chopped..some sort of herb or leaf? There is a sweet fruit scent but not recognisable yet as peach.

Once steeped this tea is dark brown in colour and has a juicy fruity peach/apricot aroma. Not as sweet as it’s raw form but much fruitier.

The first few sips reveal a rich, malt black tea base with sweet fruit highlights and a rather toasty after taste. For me it’s sweet enough to not need any additional sweetener. The peach is juicy and sweet and the raw pieces were really soft like gummy sweets. It’s a nice balance, fruity enough to be a fruit tea but with an actual tea base that also makes it a tea with a touch of fruit.

I bet this would be amazing as an iced tea. The majority of Butiki blends that I have tried so far have a delicious natural sweetness that’s like magic. It makes a lot of their teas familiar so they do have that unique factor down, their blends literally are their blends.

Another tea I’m sorry to see go but at least I can enjoy the cup and half left in my pot. :)

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

The green stuff is chopped cascade hops. That’s what gives it the beer flavor.

Thanks for letting me know, I looked on your website but couldn’t see it listed. :) It is malty so the beer part makes sense.

This was a custom blend though we will be offering a slightly modified version of this shortly. :) We will be doing a line of beer teas. I find hops to have a specific bitterness to them.

Profile

Bio

I’m 26 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.
