Thank you Butiki Tea and Stacy for this sample!
Tonight I grilled a Ahi Tuna steak for a favorite sandwich. After grilling 1-2 minutes per side on a hot dry pan, rest the tuna a few minutes then cut into chunks. Dress with Soy sauce mixed with a little WASABI (um love it). Make a salad of chopped greens, cut up avacado, a little chopped green onion, fresh corn if you have it, a little jalapeno pepper if you want…tomato if you are not allergic like me…and mix with the tuna…then spritz with lime juice and put a glob of the mix on a hotdog type bun. This is really good! Should be enough to make a few sandwiches.

OK. What goes with this?

To follow my fab sandwich for dinner, I had this Coconut Cream Pie caffeine free Rooibos and watched a French Movie on Netflix in HD on my 60in big TV (this is the good life of a retired old lady!). Oh, and a piece of salted dark chocolate.

I think this tea is almost a vanilla coconut cream flavor. I am so thankful that Butiki knows how to create flavors that are pure without going sour in the mouth. It is a pet peeve of mine that some companies use flavoring that is like swigging out of a bottle of flavoring with the alcohol in it. YUK! This is GOOD flavor not the bad stuff! The aftertaste lingers pleasantly long afterwards with that mostly vanilla note. I was tempted to get creative and run for my Lapsang Souchong to add a little…but this is not about mixing tea this time around. Butiki deserves it’s own time spotlighting this tea!

Tasty sounding recipe! Sounds like asianed up ceviche. Might be good as a soft taco! Also. Yum! Coconut tea!

Less runny than ceviche and less citrus…ceviche actually would cook the tuna. This one the lime (if you have any) is just a splash to brighten the buttery avacado. But the soft taco shell would work as well as the bun. This works well as dinner on a hot day with a cold drink. Short cooking time and fast.

I love Ahi!!! This tea sounds wonderful too!

Oh Bonnie. I agree with Ian, your posts leave me hungry. Now all I want to eat is a lovely ahi tuna steak (so I think I’ll stop by the store on the way home tomorrow morning).

I had this tea before I knew I was allergic to Rooibos…who knew! It was really good though!
