Received this as a free sample with last Butiki order. Super impressed that Butiki teas are labelled with exact water temp and brewing time and it is not just a generic for all blacks use this, etc.

This tea smells of delicious peaches. Not too juicy, but it is authentic smelling. While brewing the smell of peaches with an undertone of hops was wafting out of my mug.

This tea tastes like an unsweetened peach juice. It is not thick though. There is a slight black tea taste but I almost had to wonder if I was really drinking tea or not. There is a very faint hops taste that becomes more prominent in the aftertaste. This one doesn’t really remind me of beer at all, which is slightly disappointing because I was hoping for that hop-y, slightly malty beer taste. But it is still a delicious tea. The hops work really well with the peach flavour. Excellent blend!

Lala-For this one, we didn’t go real heavy with the hops but will definitely be doing at least one beer tea that is heavily hopped. I notice that the hops gets much stronger as the tea cools. When its warm it gets pretty hoppy. Hops is definitely a tricky ingredient to work with.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
