A sample from the lovely Courtney.

Roasty, sweet in a vaguely fruity way. Yum!

My dumdum jerkface cat basically knocked an entire mug of this tea into my lap. He managed to spill almost the whole mug, give me two minor burns, AND get my new copy of March wet. All is not lost, however. I got two more steeps out of the leaves (priorities!). This blend is nice and creamy, but I’m too distracted to give it a full assessment. Happy Friday!

This tea is tasty. Double-tasty with a little vanilla cashew milk.

I’m so sad that I never got to experience Butiki teas. I miss this tea company like I miss the Library of Alexandra: I never got to experience it firsthand. But I wish I had. (Can you imagine a library like that? OMG. Also, the Maesters’ library in Game of Thrones. Why isn’t it real? Sign a sister up).

I would pour a little of this tea out for my homies, but it shouldn’t be wasted. Sorry, homies.

I agree with all of these statements. 1) I have heard so many good things about Butiki teas but came into the game too late to try any of them. 2) Being a bibliophile who is known to frequent libraries and book stores just for the sole purpose of being surrounded by books, I have long imagined the Library of Alexandra and near needed a moment to collect myself with the Maesters library scene in GoT.

Plum and Brandy and Cheesecake. Never would have thought to combine those things but they all sound tasty.

Mitch, at one point I was having a Mental Stress Moment, and I went into Michael’s (craft store) for about an hour. I didn’t buy a thing. I just needed to study markers for a while until I settled back down. I also do this in other craft stores, pet stores, and book stores. Studying items until I don’t think about the thing in question.

Yeah, that sounds about right. On date nights, I would say at least 50% of the time, my wife and I end up in a book store, even if just for a short amount of time.

Cathy, we’re just going to cut our hair and draw on some dapper mustaches and walk RIGHT ON IN THERE. “Maesters in training. Usual guy stuff. (fake ball scratch) Gotta go learn. Bye.”

Thanks to rosehips!

Creamy! Plum-y! MAYBE brandy-y, but I don’t know, because I don’t drink brandy!

It is rich and melodic, like the singing of the performer Brandy! Does that count?

note before adding milk This is a really weird mix that works. It’s got that veggie/fruit/black tea base, with the creamy upper notes and aftertaste. With some flowers in the middle, just the tiniest bit. I’m not sure I’d have noticed this if I hadn’t seen the flowers in the mix.

note after adding vanilla almond milk Oh yes. Totally getting the cheesecake now. I’m not usually one of those people that involves milk in the process (I like my tea like I like my presidents) but wow. This rounds it out and brings out the sweetness. It also makes the floral notes stand out more. I think this time if you blindfolded me, I might have guessed that they were there.

I wonder how much plum is actually in this.

Is this going to have any effect on my digestive system? Because everything is fine right now, and I don’t want to disrupt it.

Too late to fret about that now. The science experiment has begun.

Flavors: Cream, Floral, Fruity, Molasses, Plums, Vegetal

Yay! I’m glad you like this one. I like it a lot, too.

“Is this going to have an effect on my digestive system? Because everything is fine right now and I don’t want to disrupt it.” Hahaha nice.

My kitchen smells like I’m baking something delicious when I brew this tea! The sweet, creamy vanilla is the most prominent note in both aroma and flavor, followed by a light, natural cinnamon flavor and a bit of nuttiness which I’m guessing is the squash, though it doesn’t really scream squash for me. Personally, I’d call it Vanilla Cinnamon Cookie instead, but whatever you call it, it’s yummy! This is one of just 3 Butiki blends remaining in my stash. I know I should sip them down before they completely lose their flavor, but I’m dreading the day when there’s no Butiki left in my cupboard…

Delicious. Oaky and woody and it smelled like cocoa (but oddly didn’t taste like it to me). Awesome.

Dang, looks like I didn’t write a note about this at all. I really can’t honestly say what it was like…. disappointing. I’m trying to be better about writing notes (again!)

Old Sample from Tea Sipper. Thank You!

Hmm. This is an odd black since it tastes much more like a green tea or light oolong. No bitterness at all though. Interesting.

Hard for me to identify the scent of the steeped tea: roasted and somewhat fruity and enchanting. I am quite enjoying this slightest hint of tangy plum on a creamy backdrop. There’s also something slightly peppery going on here. The brandy comes through too, gently, gently, in the distance. Lovely cup.

Thank you for sharing this sample with me, tigress_al.

400th tasting note!

This is an old sample that I had tucked away. This tastes creamy, minty, and sweet with just a touch of chocolate. There’s just enough there for one more cup. I think I’ll add some crio bru to try and bump up the chocolate flavor.

It has only been a relatively short time that I’ve been drinking and commenting on tea. I have found it remarkable that others find a kaleidoscope of flavours in what might seem to be a straight up green. Anyway, I am getting there, slowly, slowly.

I was a bit surprised at how crushed up the leaf is, so I read other reviews and sure enough, that’s just the way it is.

At first sip, I noted a hint of jasmine, but then, it disappeared, so I suspect the scent of another tea must have wandered into this sample. I have been rather slow in getting to this envelope. The past couple of months have been all over the place. Even that is a slight understatement.

Anyway, so, I do detect the slightest bit of corn here. But, vague. I honestly wouldn’t taste it if I weren’t seeking it out.

There’s a bit of grassiness too. And as others have noted, the tea gets even more smooth as it cools. And a bit of astringency too, even though I steeped it very briefly at a cooler temperature.

I think this may be the very first green tea I’ve had from India: Flowery Orange Pekoe grade, grown in Nilgiri, to be exact.

I can’t really tell you in which way this particular tea differs from a Chinese tea as there are so many variations. I will research this a bit. Thankfully, I have enough to sip another couple of cups.

Thanks, tigress_al, for letting me sample some of the glory that was Butiki.

Sad sipdown.

This has always tasted like marshmallows to me. Not the artificial, powdery Pascall kind, but the all-natural handmade ones which are super expensive from a boutique patisserie.

Slightly crushed leaves at the bottom of this old, old packet. Made for a bit of an oversteeped taste but I just added a splash of water and got it tasting like it should (minus the effect of age).

Will I ever see its likeness again?

A sample from the lovely Courtney. This is a beautiful tea, smooth with fruit notes. Loved it.
