419 Tasting Notes
It’s two weeks until my b-day, so I got some cookies. By Hestia, this does smell like cookie batter. Dry it has a really good almond scent, brewed- more citrus comes out. The flavour is more like an almond pastry with orange zest. I liked the added flowers as well. A good tea for the Autumn season. Thanks to Stacy for the recommendation.
Flavors: Almond, Citrus, Cookie, Orange Zest

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
