This tea solidifies that my taste buds have become distinctly more fond of Ginger in the last few years. Its a lovely peach and ginger hybrid when it comes to flavor. Something I could drink daily. Its not terribly darkly colored, or overly flavored. Incredibly well done blend.
36 Tasting Notes
I read the reviews before I tried this and was horrified at the mention of hibiscus. Its one of my least favorite tea additives. Luckily I don’t even notice it in the cup I’m drinking at the moment. This is like a warm pumpkin chai with a nice subtle pumpkin. Definitly a fan of more then just the name.

Roobios is hit or miss for me. Some days I love the stuff and others I can’t get past the ‘mulchy’ flavor and scent. Luckily tonight is a night where I can enjoy it. I was looking forward to a nice calming cup since I had a rather eventful night (mostly positive, minus that kind policeman who pulled us over in a speed trap.). This tea really hit the spot. The almond smell is definitly there, and I absolutely adore the addition of the sprinkles. I think things like this bring out the kid in me, in a really awesome way. The taste is all roobios, with a dash of almond on the back of my tongue. I love almond/amaretto flavors a lot, so this makes me happy.
Made for one of my favorite characters, this blend smells just like I’d expect him too. Sweet with a hint of chocolaty mystery. In the cup, its quite tart, but with a dash of Stevia in the Raw, that fixes up quick. I had this with my morning fruit yesterday, and it didn’t let me down. Looking forward to trying it with some almond milk once I get more, because cherry/almond sounds amazing.
Holy moly. This tea smells just Phenomenal. I had forgotten the mango/papaya flavors involved. This tea tastes…just amazing. It tastes like I wish working out felt. As someone who hates working out and is trying to lose weight, this is a lovely addition to make myself feel better. I’m realizing I really have come to adore Oolong teas as a whole. So glad I ordered this.
Rating this after my second drink. The first one I was impressed with the scent, but not terribly impressed with the flavor. It was too subtle to me. I remembered reading on the dicussions here that adding some sweetner usually makes certain flavors pop, so I added a packet of Stevia in the Raw, and BOOM hello Cherry! This, with sweetener (I’d say half a packet is better, this is a little too sweet) is a daily drinker for me. If I order from tea forte again, this will be on the list of things to order.
I’m loving this tea. The beautiful blend of mild vanilla and a hint of mint is just amazing. I will say, I wish I had read the reviews about it being high caffinated before drinking it so late. At any rate, I’ll work around it, and have a second brew of it when I get up in the morning. Really impressed by everything I’ve gotten from Butiki Teas thusfar. Good job!
Let me first off say, Butiki teas as a whole is an awesome company. Everyone there was super nice regarding this order. So that, from the beginning put me in a good mood regarding this tea.
Now, this is one of the surprise samples in my order. I love banana, but I’ve never had banana tea, so of course it was moved to the top of my list.
Heated as the directions said 212, for 4 minutes.
The smell is mostly black tea with a hint of banana. Its really dark to look at, which is nice with how much roobios I’ve been sipping down lately.
The flavor, tastes JUST LIKE banana chips. The freeze dried ones that come in trail mix. I’m quite pleased with that, honestly. As I love the flavor but I’m not a fan of how hard they can be if their over preserved. This will be on my list of things to get more of eventually I beleive.
Drinking the last of this sample, and I can honestly say I think I like it better this time. Paired with Dark Chocolate covered Goji Berries, its amazing. Makes me want to try more Cherry teas. Its always been a favorite flavor of mine.
I am always looking for more decaf because its an easy way to get myself sleepy earlier. This tea has an interesting scent in the bag. VERY ginger with a subtle waft of peach to it. I liked that if only for the uniqueness of it. Most ‘peach tea’ is so PEACH that you can’t think of anything else about it.
On drinking it, it tastes like black tea with a very faint apricot/peach flavor. I don’t get the ginger in liquid form at all. As someone who’s not an enormous fan of ginger thats actually a good thing. The smell of peach is there faintly as well, but its not strong enough to change the drinkablity.
I would get this again. Definitly drinkable.
Starting to think that Roobios might just be something I try to stay away from. Not because the flavors aren’t good, but because they have an overwhelming flavor of mulch blended with all of them. Not to mention my strainers tend to let the small peices of roobios tea through and into my cup, which isn’t a terrible problem but it is a petty annoyance.
As for this tea, it took me til the second steep to be able to really enjoy any flavor. The woody ‘mulchy’ scent that I’ve complained about before was mostly overwhelming. Which was a shame because I love raspberry flavored anything. On the second cup it wasn’t a terrible tea, but not something I’d buy again.
On drinking this a second time, I enjoyed it far more. Still not a daily drinker but much more tolerable. Apparently I’ve discovered that the ‘mulch’ smell bothers me far more on certain days then on others, and as long as I find a good day, then Roobios is drinkable. Weird thing, but whatever, it just makes them for special days.
So I made this in my tea tumbler for work, knowing that generally fruit teas do better over the day then anything black. I drank a cup through the day when it was still warm and then when I got home I drank the rest. The one at work, moderately okay with an awesome scent. The one when I got home was delicious. Legitamatly not sure if this was because of the work situation or because of the extra time in the water. This is the first true cranberry tea I’ve had that was looseleaf, and I’m amazingly impressed. Probably going to buy more if only for using while at work.
A lovely gift from the equally lovely Emily M, this was a surprise addition to our trade. I absolutely adore this tea, and my husband had some, added a little honey and some lemon (his throats bothering him) and he seems to equally love it. This is the first I’ve had of this brand, and I can say I’ll be trying them soon in a bigger quantity, if only to get more of this.
Beleive it or not this is my first Earl Grey, well, home made anyway. I had one at the coffee shop recently but this is the first I steeped myself. And I find it lovely. Extremely mellow and relaxing. I beleive its caffinated, which gave me a lot of motivation to get things done around the house (if its not caffinated then my brain was happily tricked). I’m always stunned by how caffine in tea hits me so different then pop or coffee do. At any rate, now I’ve got an entirely new realm of teas to try now that I know I like EG’s. What fun!
I love Thai tea at the resturant, and upon drinking this I found it to be about right. Beautiful flavor and color. First glass was drank plain, the second I added a splash of soy milk to make it a bit more like the Thai tea latte’s I’d had at the resturant. Lovely stuff. The smell in the bag is actually rather tame compared to the flavor in the glass. I’ll be getting more of this soon.
This smelled amazing both in the cup and in the sample baggy. I loved the flavor though I could have a more potently nutty flavor and I’d love it. The smell is a bit of a tease compared to how potent the flavor was. And upon the second attempt to steep the leaves, I got very little flavor. I’m not sure if that was the tea itself or the fact that I left it steeping for longer then intended.
A soft cherry flavor, with an overwhelming cherry scent. I’m a huge fan of cherry and I w ent into this with high expectations. I wasn’t let down, though I’d love for it to be more cherry, or possibly a cherry almond blend to be made because god would that be amazing. I’m pleased to have gotten this in a trade with the lovely yssah.

I added this tea simply so I can say how impressed with it I am. With Peach and Mango in the flavor notes I assumed I would, but the combination togeter tastes and smells more like lychee then either of the other two. Its lovely subtle flavor and an amazing scent make it a very relaxing drink. Well done Della Terra!
This is nice, just strawberry enough to be sweet but not overwhelmingly fruity. The scent is nice, and as someone who’s not terribly fond of Green teas in general, this one is an exception to the rule. I got it as a free sample with an order and its the one I reordered.
This tea is interesting in a very good way. The smell is almost candylike. It reminds me of something from my childhood I can’t quite place. All mango though, possibly one of the Tropical Starburst candies? When you drink it you get far less of the fruit and more of the tea flavor. Not a bad thing for me, as the scent could’ve made it taste like juice too easily. But all together, I’m happy I got this. It would probably make an AMAZING iced tea.
I was VERY leery of this tea on seeing the name. Chocolate pie yes, Pumpkin pie, yes. Both together…seems a bit rich for my blood. The tea in the bag smells pretty good, very ‘crusty’ which suprised me as pumpkin is such a strong scent. But it wasn’t a bad thing. In the cup, its really really nice and mild compared to what I’d expected. Drinking it luke warm makes all of the flavors blend well, but I still don’t get much chocolate. That is not a bad thing because the hint that IS there is lovely.
