I am in the process of creating a recipe book for my kids for Christmas – my daughter requested this – meals they grew up on many of which I also grew up on. My eyes are crossing and I am beat! Making a recipe book is a real challenge for me as I never measure anything! Still I am over joyed that my daughter asked for something like this and that I can give one to both of them for the holidays! They will of course get other things haha but this will be special! Especially as my son lives in his own place now and my daughter is about to turn 18 this December! Lord the time flies by!

Anyway I needed a break and decided this was the next tea on my Butiki Experience list!
These remind me of Unicorn Horns!
I love unicorns and yes in MY world they do exist! :)

So the first infusion was a little bland, but good, it just was not all there yet and I figured maybe this tea needed it as a rinse so I infused again. The little “horns” are starting to unfurl, they are pretty.

The tea is still light but with a little more depth than before a lemony hue which is very pretty.

Not much aroma … but the flavor is there.

Its different. Bright mouthfeel and juicy.
Slightly buttery but not like other greens by any means.
Vegetal but VERY subtly.
Its strange but some sips have such a POW of flavor while others taste a bit like rain water!
Yes I have sipped rain water back in the day thank you. :)
What a curious tea.
Please don’t take this the wrong way but I swear every great now and then I get an earthy like flavor of soil! Not contaminated yucky soil but fresh clean soil from the woods.
Strange – this isn’t a pu-erh is it? LOL I realize it is a green tea but it is the most unusual green tea I believe I have ever tasted.
I will need to get my hands on some more of this to work with it longer but at least for now I have many steepings left to experiment with!
For now, back to the recipe book and enjoying this tea!

Butiki Teas

By the way, 99.9% of people pronounce it wrong. I don’t even correct people anymore.

I pronounce it Boo-Tee-Kee!

Butiki Teas

Its boo-ti-key. Pronounced correctly here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j4UvdMUGNhk. Weird video but its not easy finding a video where you can here butiki being pronounced. Don’t worry, the butiki is never in any danger. She says it twice in the first 30 seconds. The second time is easier. Tommy, I’m totally imagining you jumping out from behind a wall shouting boo-tee-kee in a Beavis voice. Hahaha

Azzrian-I was a little worried by the title. I was hoping the butiki could get away.

CHAroma

LOVE the recipe book idea! Sounds like something your children will treasure for years to come. By the way, does Butiki still sell this tea? I can’t find it on their website…

Azzrian

Thank you so much CHAroma! :)
@ Butiki – I honestly didn’t watch to the end – out of fear of what may happen :)

Bio

Most of my reviews will be “snippits” of full reviews that can be found at http://sororiteasisters.com/
Posted every evening at 6 EST.
I usually try to post the exact date that the full reviews will post however sometimes post dates need changed so it may not always be correct. Generally the dates are correct however.

About Me:

Most of my reviews, although not all, will be quite favorable of the tea. This is not because all tea is excellent, but more so because I generally will not waste my time on an inferior tea. If I do not care for a tea I won’t continue to drink it let alone spend time reviewing it. If you see a review by me you basically know it is a quality tea. Granted it may not suit your specific taste buds, we all like different things, but as for a tea on the whole it is a good one, from a good company.

I am a spiritual advisor by profession.
I have two “young adult” children.
Four cats and three dogs.

Some of my hobbies include gardening, essential oil therapy, natural perfumery with essential oils, and cooking.

I look for complexity overall in any tea, dimensions to the flavors.

I believe tea should evoke a feeling, thought, emotion, or attitude.

I enjoy most all oolongs, blacks, whites, and greens.

I always love to try a good yellow tea.

I favor unadulterated teas but I do have my longings for a good flavored tea now and then so I don’t rule them out by any means!

I enjoy green rooibos don not like red rooibos.
