I have been thinking about Butiki custom blend contest entries lately, which has led to thinking about Butiki teas in general. I haven’t had this one in a bit and I wanted to come back to it. This time I brewed it at four minutes, as suggested.

Mmm, yes I would say this one really shines at four minutes. Honey, apricots, and a thick, rich texture. This time I can see where waffles are coming from, as well as the slightly powdery sweetness of confectioners sugar. Although I typically am not quite as fond of fruity blacks, the richness of this one totally balances it out and gives it that extra oomph. Quite a delicious tea, and worth of the hype.

I really want to enter, but when I look into the void that is my mind, I see nothing.
Oh wait….what’s that out in the distance? Something is emerging from the void!!!
Stacy….oh Staaaaaaaaacy ….

Stacy, I have an idea…

Just received a new order of this. A favorite.

Sil

I feel the need not to enter this year since it’s not fair of me to win two years in a row snicker

Dinosara

I didn’t have any ideas, but something struck me yesterday. It’s one of those ideas that I like so much that I might have to order a custom blend of it if it doesn’t win!

keychange

Oh sil, that was you who won last year?

Stephanie

I have more ideas than I am allowed to enter :P It was sorta tough to narrow it down to 3!

Terri HarpLady

Sil, what ever happened to that idea we were working on together? I think we both got sidetracked. Maybe we can enter that one?

Butiki Teas

Sil-what? You should definitely enter.

keychange-Yep, Sil won.

Sil

terri…ooh yes we could…
keychange – i think it was mostly due to the fact that it was the first year. :) i was kidding about the whole me winning again.

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
