This is one of the many samples that came with my recent Butiki order with our recent co-op order. I only wish that there had been more, but I did get two good steeps, the first one cold steeped for work, the second hot steeped at home after work. Thanks for including it with the order, Stacy! I’ve been pretty pleased with all the Butiki Teas I have had so far.

This is soooo good! It really delivers all of the flavors listed. The strawberries are the juicy front note…it’s the first thing that I noticed. It was more prominent in the cold steep that it started out as. I find the ginger stands out a bit more with the hot re-steep than it did cold, but it was there, mingling with the buttery back note.

This is truly a wonderful green tea blend. I find it to be very warming and comforting. It’s going on my wishlist for a future order.

Mmm, sounds delish.

It really is! It is a green tea with body. Sometimes I find them too light.

I generally like a lot of tea. I do find I have a preference for flavored over unflavoured, but I do love a good straight tea as well.

Likes are too hard, since there are a lot. Dislikes are easier, so here they are.

Hibiscus. Blech. I can tolerate a little, depending on the brew, like Berry Good from Davids and Ruby Pie from Butiki…but in general, it’s too tart and too strong for me.

Licorice. Anything that remotely resembles licorice is out too, so that includes fennel and anise. Yuck, yuck, yuck.

Florals. I’m cool with petals in the tea to make them look pretty, and I’m cool with teas like oolongs having a floral note, but strong florals can give me migraines. Rose and jasmine are the biggest offenders. This is one where it can vary on the blend, as I can handle Teavivre’s Peach Jasmine Dragon Pearl tea because there is very little jasmine actually detectable in it.

Rooibos is hit or miss. I can do some, but not others. I handle green better than red, and honeybush better than rooibos.

Um, I have an extensive wishlist. It is both a list of things I want to get again, and things I want to try. If you are sending me something, and you want to know which is which, I’ll tell you via PM.

My ratings don’t have a particular scale or method, and may on occasion contradict themselves, but I’m honestly not fussed about that. Sometimes I don’t even rate at all.

Uh, guess that’s it.
