From my very last Butiki box…

There an earthy scent with a lot of spice. The flavour is a nice blend of spices, and a little creaminess. Good, but I don’t really get any pumpkin. This would be good for snowy days.

I was curious, so I added this to my last Butiki box. This smells slightly smoky red hots. The flavour more like cinnamon candy as well. It’s interesting, but not what I was expecting.

Flavors: Candy, Smoke

Had it this morning with my attempt at French toast, sans milk.

This smells go good. Mostly like yams, and some cocoa. There is a nice malty chocolate flavour with hints of dried fruit (apricot perhaps). Still one of my fave morning teas.

Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Malt, Sweet Potatoes, Yams

I adore ‘yammy’ teas. This sounds delicious!

Space, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the Starship Teakettle.

Captain’s Log Stardate 11502.3 -We reached a new planet by the name of Adagio. The locals insisted we try a beverage they call ‘flavoured pu erh’. They gave me a warm mug that smells strongly of oranges and chocolate. There is an orange flavour, but I don’t get much chocolate. Decent, but I’ve had better on other worlds.

End log.

Flavors: Chocolate, Citrus, Orange

I was originally going to catch up on my reading, but got distracted by Star Trek. The name of this tea makes me think of vanilla. Though it has a strong scent of coconut. There is certainly coconut in the flavour, and I also get some apple and mango. It’s like this tea is trying to be a tropical beverage, but didn’t quite get the fruit together.

Flavors: Coconut, Mango, Tropical, Yogurt

My morning cup. It smells nicely like nuts and berry. The berry flavour comes across as sweet and creamy. Then there a nut flavour in the background.
I do enjoy the berry in this blend.

Flavors: Berry, Creamy, Nutty

I recently got this as a sample, but I’ve already tried it.

There is a nice floral scent, and some fruit- perhaps lychee. I get more lychee in the flavour, and some green grapes. Much more fruity than I remember. Went very well with my breakfast (French toast). Thanks to Teavivre for letting me try this again.

Flavors: Floral, Fruity, Grapes, Lychee

When it is snowing, I drink more tea. Makes it nice to watch from inside if I have a nice warm beverage. Today, I decided to try this. Mostly for warmth and because this is my first mug of oolong tea this year. The dry leaves have a sweet, dried fruit scent, with some roasted nuts. Brewed, I get more roasted nuts. That comes out more in the flavour, along with something toasted grain bread. Thanks to Teavivre for this sample.

Flavors: Dried Fruit, Grain, Roasted nuts, Toast

After hanging out in the snowy woods again, I decided to have this tea. There is a sweet, bread like scent, with hints of honey and sweet potatoes. The flavour is more molasses and bittersweet dark chocolate. It is a bit darker than the others I’ve tried this weekend, but still good for snowy evenings.

Flavors: Dark Chocolate, Grain, Molasses

While staying inside for a bit (snow again) I decided to have this tea and a Beastmaster episode. There is a scent of maybe dark brown sugar or molasses. The flavour is on the sweet side, with some plum notes. It is good for winter afternoons.
