Oh, this is good. REAL good. I might be in love. This might be my new favorite. This is the first tea I’ve tried from Butiki, and I can totally tell that it’s much higher quality than other teas I’ve had. It’s so natural. No fake flavor here! The dry leaf smells so good, maple-y, nutty, and woodsy. I waited very impatiently for it to steep the recommended 4 minutes, and then cool for a minute or two. It tastes exactly as it should. I get the maple and pecan, and it’s naturally sweet on its own. I didn’t feel like this needed any additions, but I did add a tiny bit of sugar, which amped up the sweetness even more. I actually felt like my sugar was so not worthy of this tea…note to self: must invest in higher quality sugar! This tea would probably be awesome for afternoon tea! It is so nice to branch out from my usual teas (flavored blacks). And the flavor is so unique. I don’t have anything like this. My favorite part is that is seems so natural, like the tea leaves naturally taste like maple pecan. Stacy, you are amazing!

Bio

I have recently become tea obsessed! I’ve always loved an occasional cup and my mother is a daily tea drinker, but in the last year it has become my favorite thing! Started out by having a cup of black tea in the morning. Loved going for afternoon tea with my mom! Since fully immersing myself in loose leaf tea, I have become nuts for it!

I am now exploring more and more companies, and trying to go beyond my comfort zone of flavored black teas and try more oolong, green and white teas.

My favorite teas are evolving. I love teas from DavidsTea, Lupicia, Harney and Sons, Della Terra Teas, and Butiki!
