This is really super tasty tea. It’s got bits of popcorn in it. I’m pretty new to this type of tea. I guess I wasn’t expecting popcorn being an ingredient. I’m really enjoying this. It’s got a real toasty/roasty quality to it. Really enjoying this!

I got this as a sample from David’s Tea. This probably sounds bad, but this tastes like cooked cabbage to me. I really love this. I’m fond if vegetal like teas and this is no exception. I will certainly be ordering this!

Cantaloupe is my favorite fruit. So I had huge expectations for this tea. Let me just say, it did nit disappoint. The dry tea smelled exactly like cantaloupe. I was hoping this would taste strongly if melon & not just a hint of it. This is delicious. It’s got a terrific flavor. The creaminess is amazing. This will be forever in my permanent stash. Stacy, this is perfection!

I took a gamble when I ordered this tea. I like maple syrup. I despise maple flavored cookies, candy, ice cream, etc. I was surprised how much I liked this. It actually tastes like maple syrup, & not artificial at all. The thing that impressed me the most is the lingering maple flavor. Very good!

This is hands down my favorite oolong that I’ve tried from Butiki so far. My only regret is that it’s a sample. Will definitely be ordering this. I can definitely smell the orchid right away as it steeps. I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this as I’m not a huge fan of floral teas. But the orchid is a lovely scent & isn’t over powering. I literally can’t stop sniffing this tea as it steeps! It’s got such a great creaminess to it. Really enjoying this one!

This tea smells delightful. While it steeped it smelled like freshly baked cookies. The flavor is good. It’s not as robust as I had imagined it to be from smelling the dry leaves. This is a great afternoon tea. It’s sweet, but not overpoweringly so. If the flavor was just a little bit stronger, this would be a home run to me.

I’m having a blast trying the different oolongs that I ordered from Butiki. This is good stuff. It’s complex. Lots of flavors going on here. I definitely get the burnt toast flavor, which I love. I also taste a nutty flavor. Really good stuff!

I’ve never tried an aged oolong before. When I first opened the bag I was surprised at how dark the leaves are. They’re almost black. It had an unidentifiable smell. It didn’t smell particularly good or bad. I’m very sorry to say that I didnt enjoy this tea. I just didn’t care for the taste. I mean no disrespect to Butiki Teas. Maybe I don’t like aged oolongs? I think I’ll see if somebody that would appreciate this tea would be interested in a swap.

I got my first Butiki order in the mail today! It came at a perfect time b/c I had a major caffeine headache this afternoon. I decided to try this tea first due to the high caffeine content. To be honest, I didn’t taste much vanilla as the name of this tea suggests. I tasted mint, lots of mint. I like mint, so I was ok with that. I read on the Butiki website to add a little sugar to bring out the vanilla. I usually don’t add anything to the teas I drink. I threw caution to the wind and added a bit of sugar. Whoa! There’s the vanilla I was looking for! All in all, a very enjoyable tea.

Thanks for the heads up. I’d probably brew it straight too and think “where’s the vanilla?”. I don’t like adding sweetener to my tea if I can help it, but if that’s how you bring out the vanilla, so be it..

Ya. I never add sugar to tea. But I really wasn’t getting a vanilla flavor. I added a little sugar & voila…….vanilla!

drank Chocolate Rocket by DAVIDsTEA

I wasn’t sure if I’d like a chocolate & raspberry flavored tea. I like chocolate candy with raspberry in the middle, but I just couldn’t imagine these flavors in a hot tea. I sure am glad that I read all the rave reviews on Steepster & ordered some for myself! This stuff is decadent. It tastes like melted chocolate with raspberry jam and a hint of almond. I am 100% not a morning person. Chocolate Rocket makes my morning less of a drag. Ya, it’s that good.

I would still consider myself somewhat of a beginner with tea. I’m looking forward to learning as much as I can from this resourceful site.

I really enjoy oolongs, especially milk oolongs. I do enjoy flavored blacks, but I feel like I’m ready to venture more into the pure tea territory. I’m clueless as to where to start with pu’s and shu’s, but am eager to learn.
