132 Tasting Notes
I made this into one of the most delicious matcha tea lattes ever. yum. Flavored matchas are becoming my ‘go-to’ milkshake lately.
This tastes like candy and tea. What better combination? Thanks so much to ashmanra for sending over this sample! It was absolutely tasty and I look forward to purchasing this, now that I know how much I enjoy it.
Yum!! Quality tea leaves with a dead-on caramel vanilla flavor. I can see that Butiki has a great balance of using top notch tea and creating wonderful flavors. This was another sample from Stacy in my Butiki order. I’m so glad she shared this one with me because its a keeper! One of my favorite caramel teas yet.
This really hit the spot this morning! Thanks Stacy for the sample, I’ve had this on my wishlist for some time now and it did not disappoint. The orange, chocolate and marshmallow all come through perfectly. What a delicious blend! This will be on my next order for sure. What a nice cup to start my day.
This was a sample from my first Butiki order that arrived today. Thanks Stacy for including some of the samples I’ve been dying to try!
Unfortunately, I’m not sure but I may have ruined my sample :-( I tried it at work and I accidentally steeped for too long. It was a little piney tasting and less pistachio that I was hoping. It wasn’t bad, just different than expected. I’ll try another sample through a swap and make it at home, so I don’t screw it up.
I’m so excited to dig into the other samples and I’ll be more careful as well. What a bummer.
This has been on my wishlist for ages. Thanks so much Ellyn for sending me a sample to try.
This has a pleasant blend of fruit and floral. Its hard to put my finger on the flavors completely but its a delicious blend. I could see this as an iced tea being very good. It is very strong, you could easily get multiple steepings from it as well.
This tea is a wonderful watermelon tea. If you are looking for a light & summery watermelon tea, this is great iced or hot. Personally, this tea is lacking the depth of some of the other blends like cantaloupe & cream or pineapple cilantro cream. But if you want something less complex, this is a better choice.
This is a pretty standard milk oolong with flavoring. It goes from creamy to vegetal. The leaves are beautiful when they are done steeping, they are very full and not really broken. This is my first tea by Teavivre, Thanks Angel for these samples!
Overall I would recommend this as an affordable and delicious milk oolong. It is not necessarily extraordinary tea but it does have quality leaves and strong flavor. When you place a Teavivre order, its worth adding to the shopping cart!
This is a charming little cup. It has a pretty amber color when steeped and really smooth. This is one of the better straight oolongs I’ve tried. This tea has a nice finish to it, it kind of sticks around with a sweet aftertaste. Anyone looking to try a quality greenish oolong, this is for you. Thanks for sharing Azz. Ultimately, I still think my favorite are milk oolongs.
I’m probably not a good person to comment on this tea yet. This is my first Genmaicha. To be honest, I’m not real sure what is keeping me from liking this tea more. There is a smokey, marshmellowy taste coming through but that’s about it. Should I taste more green-like tea flavors? I don’t taste any graham cracker (thank goodness, last time I had a s’mores tea and it tasted like wet graham cracker and that wasn’t pleasant). I will make another cup of this tomorrow to see what I think.
Captain Assam is a pristine example of assam tea. Milk & Sugar added. Just as good as my favorite english breakfast blends. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a bold black tea. Thanks Alphakitty for the sample :-)
