After a long morning of hard work, I decided to relax and enjoy a dessert tea. Raspberry Truffle is definitely a cold weather tea. Unlike my favorite flavored teas of the summer that are light and flavored so that the tea is not as noticeable, this tea base definitely has a presence. The raspberry truffle flavor doesn’t mask the taste of tea but complements it.

The leaves of the Organic Kundaly base are medium sized chunks and thin twisted dark chocolate colored leaves that mingle with the mini chocolate chips and dark pink raspberries. The leaves have a sweet raspberry and woodsy cocoa aroma that is intoxicating. The wet leaves are a bit more uniform and mahogany in color. Pink pieces of fruit and melted chocolate are noticeable. The aroma is a sweet raspberry that finishes almost woodsy. Slight citrus notes can be detected. The liquor has good clarity and is reddish amber in color and has an aroma of cinnamon, raspberry, and cocoa. I started off drinking this tea without any sugar. Raspberry Truffle has a lightly woodsy flavor that develops into dark unsweetened cocoa and a slightly sweet but tart raspberry. The raspberry lingers and mingles with the cocoa flavor. After a few sips I decided to add a little bit of brown crystal sugar. The sugar intensified that flavor. As I sipped the tea I noticed that it now started out with a light creamy chocolate flavor that developed into a sweet raspberry that lingers. Notes of wood and citrus can be detected.

This sounds divine – I’m am SO Jealous – raspberry, cocoa and tea three of my most favourite things.

You have such a fine sense of taste which is hard to find in most tea’s!

Butiki Teas

Thanks Bonnie!

Bonnie

Well I mean it! (I tried a popular company that comes out with a new flavor every week…you know the one…and bleh…really bad! I don’t get how people like it! I am sensitive to smell and taste! You can’t cut corners with cheap ingredients. I’ve won contests for pastry and pies in particular so maybe that’s why I hate bad flavorings and mixtures.)

Bonnie-Thank you very much. Wow, that’s fantastic that you’ve won pastry and pie contests! I agree, what you put in is what you get out of your creation. I put lot of love and high quality natural ingredients into my teas. I’m so glad you have been enjoying our teas.

Bonnie

I sent a sample of Pistachio to a nice guy (Jason) who does not drink flavored tea…and he liked it! You do a great job. (…take a look at his review today!)

Butiki Teas

I will check out his review. :)

Thanks to Bonnie’s generosity, I also sampled the Pistachio Ice Cream tea today. This is my first Butiki Tea experience. I loved it! I hope to try more Butiki teas in the future!

Wow, Bonnie! You are multi-talented! If you want to also send some pastry and pie samples for me to test, that would be just fine. :-)

Bonnie

Not a chance…I was stupid entering the Johnny Appleseed Contest in Paradise, CA…because I HATE TO MAKE PIE CRUST! Once you win they expect you to enter every year! Then, I did it again…Black History Month (don’t ask) Pecan Pie…Stupid Me again…! I won! I will never ever enter a pie in a contest again!!!!!

Bio

My taste for tea started at an early age. As a child, I would frequently enjoy a cup of tea with my family. Tea has always been a significant part of my life, through all the challenges and all the accomplishments and celebrations. Naturally, I became interested in the variety of high quality teas and the very culture that encompasses tea. Today, I want to share my passion and love of tea through Butiki Teas.
