407 Tasting Notes
(To me cockswain/ navigator, Starfevre – ’ave an Arrrmazing Birrrrrrthday!)
Me new crew be a bunch of teetotalers, they gave me this when I asked for grog. Picked it up in the great port of San Francisco, they did. Blimey! This be a coconutty brew. There be rum as well. Reminds me of the time we sailed through the Spanish Main.
A fine bit of booty to store in me hold.

The last one of the Butiki order. There is mostly a malty scent, with some citrus notes. It has a sweet flavour, and is a bit more malty. A nice evening cup while I watch Doctor Who.
I wanted to try other Indian black teas, since I’m so used to assam. Now I have two, and one of them is a decaf even. In the future, I must look for other new black teas… for science.
Oh, I’m the very first review for this tea. I wanted to try it because it reminded me of a light masala chai. And it is. The scent mildly spiced, and mostly cinnamon. In the flavour, I get more cloves, but the cinnamon is still very present. If I got this, I’d maybe use it in bread.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Cloves, Spices
I’m still not really sure what purple oolong is exactly, somebody please explain. Anyway, this smells so like plums. It’s fabulous really. Which I had a plum to compare. The flavour is plum, I get some brandy. There is also some creamy notes, but mostly it’s a good fruit tea.
I wanted to get something from Butiki, and try other Indian black teas, so I got this. It has a nice sweet, and slightly nutty scent. The flavour is sweet, with a mild, but certainly present walnut taste. Overall, it makes for a good afternoon tea.
Flavors: Nutty, Sweet, Walnut
Tasting note 400! Woo! Last week, I made my first Butiki order, and Stacy send this as a sample. I had a couple cups while waiting for the peach pie to bake (it turned into a cobbler hybrid somehow). The scent was mostly stonefruits, especially peach, and some notes of pecans. There is a lot of peachy in the flavour as well, a bit malty, and nuts. If I ever made a peach pecan pie, it might taste like this. It is also my first Nilgiri tea.
Flavors: Peach, Pecan, Stonefruits
Tried in the store because it smelled so good. The scent was sweet, and tropical. It smelled nicely the pineapple, with hints of coconut, and some floral from the oolong. There was a light and fruity flavour. I have liked their flavoured oolongs a lot, but it seems I always try them in the wrong season. This one would be better earlier in the year.
Flavors: Coconut, Floral, Fruity, Pineapple, Sweet, Tropical
