Weirrrrrrrrrrrrd……….. I’m like 97% sure I’ve reviewed this before, but it’s not showing up. STEEPSTER Y U EAT MY NOTES!?

I’ve had this one at work for awhile now, it’s one of my special happy place teas. Most of which are Butiki, admittedly.

It’s really a great blend of flavours. I love the smell and the taste and the fact that I only have MAYBE 2 cups max left makes me sad.

I am in the exact same situation with my RiverTea Granny’s Cake. :(

TeaNTees, I’m also sad about Granny’s Cake :(

drank Pistachio Horizon by Butiki Teas
237 tasting notes

Whoa, this stuff is intense! I followed Stacy’s direction and only steeped it for 1 minute, but I still got a STRONG hit-you-in-the-face malty brew. The pistachio flavor is definitely present as well, but for me it’s mostly coming through in the aftertaste. I don’t usually add milk to flavored teas, but I think I will be trying that with this one. It’s definitely a good morning wake-up brew, but as far as pistachio-flavored teas go, I prefer Pistachio Ice Cream.

Flavors: Malt, Nuts

Preparation

Root beer teas as lattes is just right. Thank you rosebudmelissa for the sample which promptly got dumped in my steeper for tonight’s dessert treat. The cup was so creamy and had an amazing root beer flavor. Plus, the milk subdued the honeybush making the flavoring stand out that much more. A great tea for the evening!

Sample from Zach S. Thank You!

Hmm. I wasn’t really a fan of this one. It mostly tastes earthy and smokey to me. I don’t really taste cinnamon or bred. I might like it better if the cinnamon was stronger. Oh well, it was nice to try.

Sipdown of an older sample, I believe it came from Courtney but I could be wrong!

Made this at work yesterday, enjoyed the inclusion of a big blackberry in the bag!

I may have steeped a bit too long. I haven’t tried too much guayasa in my life, I think it has a bit of a planty taste. Not sure I dug it. I could see how the blackberry lime might be an interesting combination, but this is not a Butiki tea that I mourn the loss of. Thankfully, because that list is already long enough. If I dedicated 5 minutes per tea to cry about every day, I’d be crying forever.

Thanks the the sample, Courtney! (?)

Dustin

I don’t think I like guayusa very much. I keep getting this cigar ash taste and I think it might make my tongue slightly itchy. Weird, right?

whatshesaid

Yeah, it was too oddly planty for me. Not planty in a good fresh green tea sort of way. Just – odd.

Courtney

Oh dear, I loooove this one hah. But I’m glad you got to try it at least!

TeaNTees

This one sounds very interesting. I have a fondness for guayusa, but I can see how it may not appeal to everyone.

Could have sworn that I had a tasting note for this one. This is one of the teas that has been in my cupboard for too long, so I’m making efforts to drink all of it down before new orders come in. It’s a pleasant enough green tea. Light, mellow, and vegetal without being overly grassy. The tea base is slightly buttery. The flavors of gently roasted nuts and cream are light and accompany the natural flavors of the tea nicely. There’s vanilla at the end of every sip. It tastes more like whipped cream than ice cream. Perhaps because ice cream is a heavy, dairy/buttermilk flavor, and whipped cream is more light and airy.

I’ll get through the rest of this bag because it’s blended very nicely, but it’s definitely not something I’ll crave. (Green tea. Eh.)

Flavors: Butter, Cream, Nutty, Roasted nuts, Vanilla, Vegetal

Butiki’s Pumpkin Creme Brulee has been my favorite pumpkin tea, but now that I’ve sampled this one I think I like it even better! The leaves are long and slender smell heavily of pumpkin. Brewed, this tea is smooth and buttery and sweet. The butterscotch hits my tongue first, followed by incredibly natural pumpkin flavor (how does Stacy do that???) and a light espresso aftertaste. I’d take a cup of this tea over a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte any day of the week!

Flavors: Butterscotch, Coffee, Pumpkin

To me this tea is a cross between a ripe puerh, a raw puerh, and a roasted oolong. That is the best way I can describe it. It’s not as good as a good Chinese puerh but it’s decent, very different. Not sure what notes I am getting here, definitely not stonefruits as in the writeup on Steepster. More like tobacco I think. I didn’t use the recommended infusion time of 4 min as I never infuse puerh that long.

I brewed this twice in a 18oz teapot with 3 tsp leaf and boiling water for 30 sec each time.

Flavors: Tobacco

This was very tasty. I could taste the cashew for sure, as well as a sweetness that must have been the cakey taste. It was fruity, but I can never taste specifically plum in plum flavored teas. I think I will try this with a little sugar tomorrow to see if I can bring out more of the fruity, cakey flavors.

I have to admit, I’ve been avoiding this tea for a little while. It was VERY aromatic, in the sense of strawberries & coconut, so much so that it reminded me of lotion. Overtime I opened it, the idea of drinking it kind of grossed me out. But yesterday I finally manned up, so to speak, & steeped it to share with a student & her mom, thinking that way if it wasn’t so great, at least I only had to drink a small cup, right?

I should have trusted Ms. Stacy, because it really wasn’t disgusting at all! My guests loved it, and although I can’t say that I felt the same way, it was still a pleasant cup of tea, not really lotion-like at all. It was a gentle cup, kind of like a strawberry cupcake topped with coconut frosting. I even ate a few of the rehydrated strawberries :)

Thanks to Sil for sending me a sample :)

Lala

Nice to have you back on the dashboard.

Terri HarpLady

Thanks Lala!
I’ve been focusing on my sip down extravaganza discussion group, & just really haven’t had much to share in regards to teas I haven’t already reviewed 150,000 times, LOL. For now I’m mostly just gonna post reviews on teas I’m drinking for the first time, in part because I’m tired of being redundant, but also because life is busy for me & I just don’t have that much time to hang out :(
Big Hugs!

Sil

glad this one didn’t give you any sort of reaction! eep.

Lala

I know what you mean Terri, I haven’t posted a noted in forever! I’m just lurking around, stalking everyone.

Terri HarpLady

Me to Sil! I did once have a reaction to one of Stacy’s strawberry teas…I forget which one. My cheeks got flushed, & then my butt cheeks turned red too, LOL, like when a baby has a reaction to strawberries.

This floral, buttery-sweet oolong makes for a particularly floral and buttery jam and nut butter. At the best of times it’s a cup full of scone goodness, but something about the flavouring doesn’t quite do it for me. It’s still an enjoyable tea, albeit one I won’t miss too much.

This is more me saying goodbye to Stacy’s Organic Sparrow Tongue (I will find you again!).

I’ve had this a few times now, but I don’t remember the powder sugar being so pronounced.. or there at all. I think it was mostly plum before- now it’s all in with the cashew cake and tangy-sweet syrup. Magic. The kind that’s probably connected to cooler drinking temperature, shorter steep time, etc. Also, paying attention to what I’m drinking.. I don’t know.

This is going to help me not eat the last of the cheesecake in the fridge. Yes it is. The last of the cheesecake was the perfect accompaniment for this tea.

Flavors: Cake, Nuts, Plums, Powdered sugar

drank Sansia Black by Butiki Teas
141 tasting notes

Method:
~3tsp/10oz
Preboiling
First steep: 2min
Second steep: 3min

The first steep is very fruity and bright with notes of stone fruit, raisins, honey, and a heavy malt/caramel aftertaste. Most of what I taste here is fruit. It’s tart and has this bitter-nut-skin quality to it that’s not overly bitter or unpleasant. I don’t think I’ve ever eaten chestnut or had many things flavored like it, but it reminds me very much of SOT’s Candied Chestnut, so I suppose that’s the flavor I’m having trouble naming. There’s a hint of sourdough as well. The second steep also contains notes of chestnut, honey, and plums, though it is comparatively light. Slight caramel aftertaste, not much in the way of malt or chocolate. I will try the recommended 3:30 steep next time to see if I can coax a deeper and maltier flavor profile.

Flavors: Baked Bread, Caramel, Chestnut, Dried Fruit, Honey, Malt, Plums, Raisins, Sour, Stonefruits, Tart

Needed some black tea today, so I picked this one. It certainly smells a bit like custard. The flavour is sweet and creamy, with some vanilla. There is more of a nutmeg scent, I don’t really taste it much. As I have not tried the first version, I can not compare them. Perhaps I should try brewing it longer next time. Thanks to cookies for the sample.

Flavors: Cream, Creamy, Vanilla
