CREME BRULEE OMFG! Creme brulee is my fav dessert! My husband made it for me the night he proposed (and a prime rib, barely remember that though)

DRY: Lots of weird orange flakey bits.

STEEPED: brown orange tea, smells of black tea and pumpkin.

TASTE: WHOA! I notice an amazing creamyness right away. Theres a smooth pumpkin taste as well. The black tea is nice too – all perfectly mixed with the other flavors. Very natural tasting pumpkin.
Sweetened with some rock sugar, the creamyness and pumpkin come out more. Also some spice lightly pops out.

WHO’D LIKE THIS: Autumn tea lovers! With all the pumpkin teas out right now for fall, this one is good for someone who loves creamyness! This one also is gently spiced.

COMPARISON: DavidsTea’s Pumpkin Chai – has more spice. Pumpkin tastes a little different and brighter. Black tea base is stronger.
Pumpkin Creme Brulee is less spice, but on the creamy side. IMO, the black tea has a better taste. Pumpkin tastes more natural.

COMMENTS: I dig the creamyness of this tea! Very excellent and the flavors are balanced perfectly!

ARGG, I got so much Pumpkin Chai that I’ve been hesitant to order other pumpkin teas. Pumpkin Creme Brulee is on a slightly different wavelength. I thought it would be more eggy like creme brulee, but still tasty! Either way, very good and I highly recommend this tea… and pretty much all Butiki teas I’ve tried! all sooo good!

Preparation
Boiling 2 min, 30 sec
Butiki Teas

Those weird flaky bits are actual bits of pumpkin freeze dried (that’s the actual color). They were so weird and interesting that I wanted to add them to the mix. They dissolve on your tongue if you eat them.

I’m now going to proceed to lick the sample bag now that you told me!

Butiki Teas

Hahahaha. If some flavoring touched the flakes it may taste a bit strong. Just warning you. :D

Pumpkin and nutmeggy! I do like the freeze dried bits more verses the candied or regular dried bits.

this makes me want to give this tea a shot…even though I’m not a fan of pumpkin…

Profile

Bio

I’m a crafty knitter and crocheter that loves to work on a project and drink tea. I worked as a counsellor and I chain-drink tea to keep me calm and grounded.

I’m a tea blogger – The Oolong Owl
www.OolongOwl.com – I do tea reviews, obsessively photograph teas with mischievous crocheted Owls and get tea drunk.

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.
My recommended tea shops:
Mandala Tea
Steep City Teas
Butiki Teas
DAVIDsTea
Della Terra Teas
Lupicia
Verdant Tea
Yunnan Sourcing
52 Teas / Zoomdweebies
Yunomi.us
Red Leaf Tea
New Mexico Tea Co
Bluebird Tea Co
The Persimmon Tree

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

I have a husband and a bunny who both hate tea. More for me!!!! MUUAHAHAHAHAAA
