Hello Sweetie’s lighter, more tropical sister. Love it, one of my Butiki tea favorites. Dat banana.

A pretty unique tasting tea for me compared to my other shus. It tastes very much like raw pastry—more so when blended with butter/coconut oil. On its own it also has a bit of a rubber taste (and not entirely in a bad way). Definitely creamy.

This is a beautiful tea and very unique. Initially it tastes/smells like your average roasted tea, but it’s not quite as smokey/roasted as you’d expect. This is a plus for me since I’m pretty iffy about roasted teas—most make me feel nauseous. The sweetness was surprising to me, as was the buttery taste. Towards the end I get a sweet crisp fresh, juicy cooling minerally taste that is unexpected and addicting. I feel like a cow must feel when munching on the most delicious sweet grass (but it’s not vegetal at all to me). Ooh, I can place it now—it reminds me of persimmons or maybe nectarines and I can taste the peachiness others are talking about.

Really lovely, I was impressed with the creaminess. Have found Butiki teas to be impossible to overbrew too.

I might have to try this one again. Maybe I didn’t use enough tea? In any case, I expected a rich creamy taste but got kind of a generic lightly vanilla one :<

This is lovely, but I still sometimes taste that kind of artificial/concentrated taste when the flavor is very strong—perhaps only when I overbrew :) But maybe I overbrew because it doesn’t punch me in the face like I want it to (I don’t get much of the tea taste, but I guess that’s the point)

Absolutely divine. I oversteeped a bit and blended the cup with a tray of ice (in dalek and tardis shapes too!)—it turned frothy and creamy and amazing. This is definitely a much better coconut/banana cream pie than the actual offering from Butiki (but I’m not a big rooibos person) :) Definitely my favorite Butiki tea so far!

Beautifully smooth and creamy. Just made butter tea with it, and now I’m jittery though. This has never happened before. RAAAAWRJkleeeeeee

A lovely tea expertly blended with beautiful ingredients. Tastes way better than my plain nettle tea, has a bit of a glutinous rice flavor to me. However I brewed for 15+ minutes and it was still quite subtle. Probably doesn’t stand up to many multiple brews. The rose really comes out especially when cooled.
