Awe yeah! So this was my “something to look forward to tea” today since the custom blend arrived yesterday from Stacy. In retrospect i probably should have just tried it last night since i made it this morning and it’s sat in my travel mug all morning because i got busy.

I’ll give it another go over the next few days as well to give stacy some feedback but overall this is pretty darn tasty :) I much prefer it over frank’s honeybush strawberry rhubarb (since i get no rhubarb taste in his, just less cinnamon than strawberry pie).

I’m glad we went with a little bit of hibiscus in this one since it brings just a little tartness to the party, which is evident in all strawberry rhubarb pie!

Holding off on all my final thoughts on this though (as well as rating it) since i don’t think my travel mug does it justice and i’m super swamped at work and therefore not half as focused as i want to be.

Really happy this is finally in my hands :)

This sounds super yummy! I love my grandmother’s strawberry rhubarb pie and it’s such a unique taste. In a tea?! Sounds heavenly!

This one sounds yummy.

Really, black tea. This may cause my first order from Butiki. Does it have much cinnamon in it?

Sil

I honestly can’t recall if we ultimately decided to add cinnamon to it (it’s been a long process) but if there is, it’s very subtle. It’s not up on the website yet as Stacy was waiting for it to get to me so that i could taste it etc.. but it will be :) I highly recommend her teas! If it’s going to be a while, i can always send you a small sample star :)

Starfevre

A sample would be great, though I do have enough tea that I can definitely wait for it to be put up on the website. Trying before I buy might be preferable, I don’t remember if butiki does samples.

Sil

Stacy does samples with orders…rather than samples as orders if that makes sense. Though you can often order just a 1/2 ounce which is nice.

Totally missed this note. Doh! Glad you are digging the tea! I’m so happy we went with the hibiscus too. Not too much, just enough to give it that rhubarb taste. Let me know your final notes and if you think any other adjustments are needed and I will be sending you those questions.

Sil

I’m going to try and have more on Sunday so that I can focus on it. I HAVE however, dolled out samples here and there that will be sent to a few people in the near future. haha

Butiki Teas

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
