This tea is just lovely (though I bought it from a different seller, all the things here seem right so I’m assuming same tea from different sources?). It has a warm sweetness, and when you add some milk and sweetner, it makes for an extremely lovely and drinkable tea. Anyone whos curious about this, please let me know, I’m looking for a reason to go visit the shop this was bought at again, and buy more.

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.

squeak That you like this one really really makes me happy. (Also glad they arrived!)

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.

Between my husband and I, we got 3 tickets in the past few weeks. Ugh.

Whats funny is that my husband perpetually drives like he’s running from the mob. And the one time he legit just didn’t notice the speed limit had changed on the freeway (it was around 2am on the way home on a friday night, he’s not trying to get breath tested even if he hasn’t had anything boozy since 10) he got pulled over. The cop we had was actually really cool about it, and only wrote for 5 over when my husband was doing more like 20 over. But damn what kind of luck lol.

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!
