Yum! This is a big cup full of almond pastry. Lovely! Butiki teas continue to impress. Yum yum!

Found this in the clearance bin at my local grocery store. I was interested. As a fan of mint tea, I thought I had tried it in most of its forms, but a black mint was new to me.
Its good. The mint does not get lost at all in the tea base, which is a relief, and you are left with a pleasant aftertaste of mint. Suprisingly good.

Am I really the first one to review this? No pressure!
I drank several pots of this before getting a strong enough opinion to write about. Its kind of that sort of tea. A little unmemomorable. Its got rose flavor, but the astringincy of the tea sort of overpowers it, leaving me with a less mellow tea then I would like. Its got some natural sweetness, but more smoke to it then sweet.
Not a bad tea, you understand, just not wildly impressive.
And its got a very pretty tin.

The discription does not lie. Strawberries and cream! This is scrumptious. The strawberry flavor is perfect, just like the real thing, fresh from the farmers markets.
Even if Roobious isnt usually your thing, give this a try. Its wonderful.


agree. i totally loved this!

Had another cup of this today. Theres nothing really wrong with it, but I find it a little strong on the rose flavor, and a little one dimensional. Too bad, I was looking for an easily accessible rose tea, but I don’t think this is it.

Uggh, it was extra hard to drag myself out of bed this morning. I rewarded myself for managing to actually get up with a cup of this. Almond pastry in a cup. It helped to make my bitter morning a little sweeter.

Brewed this up as my last cup of the evening yesterday.
This is very smooth, and the fruit flavoring is blended really well. The red tea is hardly noticable under the fruit flavor, which makes it seem like the fruit might be overpowering, but its not at all.
I like it, but am not compleatly overwhelmed by it. Will happily have another cup if it ever comes my way again.
Thanks to Sophie and Laurent!

Thanks to Sophie and Laurent for this sample!
Mmm. Its caramel tea day here, it seems.
Of course, the caramel and vanilla notes are secondary to the currant flavor, which is very nice indeed. Fruity without being too fruity. Balanced very well. I sipped this while I had a plate of fresh figs, drizzled in honey. Yum! A lovely paring.
My sample was just enough for one cup, but this is something I’ll hunt down more of in the future.


I bought this one because it was so sooooo yummy, I plan to get it for my future son-in-law as a wedding gift when he gets to the USA!

drank Darjeeling by Twinings

As my tea collection swells to alarming and wonderful numbers, I have decided that I must drink at least one cup of something meh every day, in an effort to get through it, and make room for more and better teas.
This is still bitter and inferior. I’ve got one bag after this cup. Sipdown later today?

I have a million new teas that all arrived yesterday in the mail, but I decided that this would be the first one to try. Caramel and vanilla are some of my favorite flavors for anything, and I was looking forward to seeing how they would go in this blend.
Oh my. Hello, you delightful tea. This couldent have more caramel in it if it tried. But fear not, it doesnt have any sticky sweet, cloying, overpowering flavor. The assam gives it just enough smokiness to mellow out the caramel, and the vanilla mellows out the assam.
This is wonderful, and I can tell its going to become a standby. Carmel cake in a cup. Lovely, lovely! Get ye some of Caramel Vanilla Assam!


This is definitely one of my favorites! And for every reason you just stated! :-)

I love tea! I confess that I was a hot chocolate lover for most of my life, but recently a switch has gone off in my brain, and suggested that I might just love tea. And I do!
I’m a bit of a novice, but an enthusiastic one, and am happily sipping new varieties all the time.
I love vanilla, fruity, and caramel flavors, and cant wait to try more.
