This was one of the teas I most wanted to try from Butiki Teas. Maple pecan reminds me of really sweet, sugary pastries studded with pecans. I love oolong and this looked like such a tasty tea!

I am in absolute love! The leaves are dark & long & beautiful. There are actual pecans throughout the bag and they are huge! One of the things I most appreciate about Butiki Teas is that their tea always looks so pretty, unique and fresh. The scent is toasty, sweet, nutty and is mostly of maple.

Sipping… it’s smooth and rich. I taste a sweet, woodsy, toasty oolong with a sweet maple finish. I also detect that kind of drying, almost bitter part of the pecans. That sensation that fills the back of your throat. What I think I love about this tea is that while you are drinking, the oolong and nuts are most present, but as you finish sipping you taste that scrumptious, sticky, sweet maple. The cup is satisfying and rich, but not too much! I simply love this tea.
