Sooo tried this one yesterday, but had to stop drinking it half way through becuase my body decided that I wasn’t already miserable enough pain wise, so I randomly got nauseous. >>
Don’t know how much I qualify for writing a tasting note, but I don’t want to hurry and drink it again because I need to qualify for writing a tasting note. xD I’d rather just save it for a special occasion.
Anyway, the point is, I have to save this tea for special occasions because like the other tea that I ordered, it’s pretty stinkin’ good, and I need to savor it.
The dry leaf aroma is definitely stronger than the steeping aroma. I opened my Butiki box and I was hit by the banana smell. xD It was crazy-haha!
When I was drinking it I mainly tasted bananas and some notes of walnut here and there. Not much butterscotch. But that’s probably because I could only drink half of the mug :( Sad times…. :( Health issues really suck sometimes.
But that half of a mug was still really delicious. And I am sure I will thoroughly enjoy it when I drink it more. This one also makes me wish that Stacey wasn’t leaving. xD
And this definitely helped her go out with a bang too!
This tea is such a win!
Thank you so much for making this-this one is really going to make everyone miss you even more, Stacey! D:

So glad you enjoyed this. Sorry to hear that your health issues were acting up.

Sil

i have clearly missed something…. qualify for writing a tasting note?

Ost

Well yeah, it just kinda seems lame to be rating an amazing tea when I was only able to drink half a cup. Haha I don’t know, I just feel extra lame when my health issues ruin things like this, Sil! It’s hard to explain haha

Sil

aaah! no i can follow that. it was just you wrote a note like that and then like 3 other ppl had stacy notes and i was like shit? do i have to qualify for the sale by writing a note? what did i miss!!!!!

Ost

Haha oh no! I’m sorry for the confusion, Sil!!!

AHHHHHHH THIS FREAKIN’ TEA.
Way to go out with a bang, Stacy!
First off the oolong base is just so perfect for this tea. It adds to the kind of nutty flavor that reminds me of almonds. Plus since the Maple Pecan tea had an oolong base, it was very fitting that this maple tea also has an oolong base.
Anyway, when I opened the bag all I could smell was waffles and syrup. Don’t know if there was an actual waffle flavoring added to this tea, but the dry leaf smell was seriously spot on!
When I was steeping it, the aroma mellowed out some, but was still strong.
But when I began drinking it, I was hit by all the flavors at once. Not even joking-this tea is super strong. Ridiculously sweet-in a good way!
It literally tastes like waffles and maple syrup in liquid form, with a hint of nuttiness. I seriously don’t know how she does it, but this tea is a freakin’ masterpiece.
You don’t even need sweetener! It’s that sweet.
This tea is absolutely delicious. I probably won’t be able to get more but mannn I am going to savor what I have.
In conclusion, this is another win from Butiki!
Stacy-you have done it again! Mann we will all miss you so much. Thank you for this amazing tea-you are certainly going out with a bang!!

Flavors: Almond, Maple Syrup, Nutty, Sweet

Hahaha. It is Stacy but I never correct anyone since even my relatives spell my name wrong. We did add waffle flavoring to this one. Really happy with this one. I feel like it was one of the best that I’ve done. :)

Ost

Haha I must change the spelling! I saw it spelled with an “e” in it on one note and then it just got in my head-haha! I’m sorry! XD And it’s definitely one of my favorite teas I’ve had from you-thank you soo soo much again!!!

Tea Sipper

AH! Can’t wait to try mine! Should be here tomorrow! I had to order three of the new teas. :D

Ost

Yah! Can’t wait to see your notes, Tea Sipper!!

This was a sample in my What Cha order. I don’t even remember noticing this one on the website. But since most of the teas in my order didn’t really suit me well, I assumed I wouldn’t like this one either.
I was pleasantly surprised!
It was definitely malty, not overly so, but enough to notice.
There’s another really strong flavor in this, but I can’t for the life of me think of what it is. People mention cocoa and chocolate notes, but I’m not really getting any of that.
I’m sure that the next time I drink this I’ll figure it out. But I do enjoy the maltiness of this one. (:

Thanks for the sample, What Cha!!

Flavors: Malt

Oops, for some reason sweet girl, Steepster says I’m not following you anymore :-(
Lets remedy that right now! :-)

Ost

Really? Weird! Haha I was actually going to message you tonight-guess it’s good you followed me again! XD
Seems like Steepster is having all sorts of weird issues lately. xD

Woo! Another sample sipdown!! :D :D
This one was definitely interesting. Not really something I would have gotten on my own, or even would have bought if it were still in stock at Butiki right now.
But it was interesting to try, and it made for a pleasant cuppa. (:

drank Orchid Oolong by Art of Tea

Now this is a sample I will be sad to sip down. D:
I love how floral-y it is. Just a beautiful tea.
If it didn’t have the tendency to get super buttery if you accidentally over-steep it I would probably pick up more. Oh well.
I will enjoy the few cups I probably have left of this one! ^^

Flavors: Butter, Floral, Smooth

drank Heaven's Trash by Butiki Teas
552 tasting notes

Got this tea in my last Butiki order. Hadn’t tried it till yesterday. On Steepster it says there are a LOT of flavors. Kinda diverse, and I wasn’t sure what to think. But then in tasting notes it acted like it’s a really chocolate-y, malty tea. Which made me decide to buy it in the first place. XD
So I wasn’t exactly sure what to think going into this one.
But I was actually pleasantly surprised.
It was rather fruity. I tasted raisins and plums. Pretty bready too.
Kinda malty, but not overly so. Maybe a bit chocolate-y, but nothing too noticeable.
Overall it was a delicious tea and I’m really glad I got to pick some up! (:
Another win from Butiki!

Flavors: Baked Bread, Chocolate, Fruity, Malt, Plums, Raisins, Smooth, Sweet

Sil

Drank more of this yesterday afternoon, because I’m trying to sip down all my sample sizes still. This is one of them.
I think that the first time I steeped this I only put one tsp, but this time I put two which is what it says to do on the bag.
It was so much different than I remembered!
There was almost no peach at all (which is really sad for me) because the coconut really took over. And it was super creamy, which I actually kinda liked. It had some kind of faint fruity note in it, but it wasn’t peaches. D:
The creaminess would have been so perfect with peach flavors. And the white tea base would be the perfect base for that kind of tea too. Oh coconut, if only you didn’t take over. D:
Oh well, when I’m in the mood for a coconut tea, this one will be perfect. xD

Flavors: Coconut, Creamy, Fruity

Bio

I’m not too sharp with intros, but I figured it is about time to give it a go.
I started out drinking oolong and green tea that my dad brought home from his China business trips.
Then I discovered Teavana, and fell in love with some of their teas. Eventually I stumbled across Steepster, and a whole ‘nother world opened up.
Have discovered so many different kinds of teas, and have been loving this journey! The tea world is insanely big and amazing! And I’ve met some of the kindest people here who have broadened my horizons in more ways I could have imagined! Happy to be here, and to be drinking so many amazing teas! :D

My rating system:
1-59: Really really not a fan. An awful cup of tea for me…Totally undrinkable.

60-69: Not horrible, but not something I’d ever drink again willingly.

70-79: Pretty good. Wouldn’t mind drinking ever so often. But not a keeper.

80-100: FREAKIN’ AMAZING. Always keeping on stock in my home!!

I like pretty much any kind of tea except green tea. Unless it’s genmaicha or strongly flavored, I don’t like it usually.

My Tea Goals:
To find the Best Caramel Tea
To find the Best Vanilla Tea
To find the Best floral Oolong
To find the Best Malty Assam Tea
To find the Best Maple/Syrup Tea

Notes I like: Fruit(primarily peach, melon/honeydew, Banana, Kiwi, but I’m open to other kinds), Malt, Desserts (Toffee, Cake, Cookie,etc), Vanilla, Caramel, Floral, Sweet potato, Pastry/Bread,Jasmine, Honey, Cocoa, Chocolate, Maple, Nutty, Coconut, Almond.

Notes I’m Picky with: Lemon, Chai, Roasted, Blueberries, Hibiscus, Smoke, Earthiness, Puerhs, White Teas, and Cinnamon

Notes I hate: Citrus/Orange (Everything that I hate in this life that I have to take for my health is orange flavored, and it just makes me gag…so please…just no), Watermelon, Raspberry, Wood, Apple, Bacon, Lavender, Most mints, Pepper, Spicy, Tart/sour.

Yes, I am a picky tea drinker, but I’ll usually try any straight black or oolong tea that I receive. I like most oolongs, and I’m still discovering straight blacks. They always seem to surprise me no matter what!

And Swaps! I’m always down for swapping. Everything in my cupboard is swap-able. So just hit me up and send a message and we can totally do that!

On an unrelated to tea note, my other interests are limited due to health issues. But when I can, I enjoy reading and writing. Watching Netflix and YouTube have also been fantastic when I feel awful (which is most of the time).
I love Rifftrax, Rooster Teeth, Dexter, Hannibal, BBC’s Robin Hood, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Psych, and Parks and Rec.
Love watching all sorts of movies too, but that would be too much to list. :P
I’m definitely more of an internet person and love talking to people on every website I’m on. So if you ever wanna chat, shoot me a message! ^^
