drank Ruby Pie by Butiki Teas
451 tasting notes

My Butiki order arrived yesterday! I’ve basically been getting packages in the mail all week, and well I know you know how awesome that feels.

This was one of the teas I ordered a lot of, because I fell in love with it the first time I tried it and actually managed to brew fairly consistent cups afterwards. As soon as I opened the bag, the intensely strong scent of a strawberry rhubarb pie assailed my nostrils, and I basically wanted to start eating the tea itself, complete with licking the packaging. Instead, I brewed up a cup and had it the civilized way.

You know how when you’re given a fresh piece of strawberry rhubarb pie right out of the oven? And there it is, sitting all nice and triangle-shaped on your plate, and there you are with your fork or spoon or whatever, and then you take your first bite and the whole pie explodes? and the strawberries just come bursting out, dripping and oozing sticky strawberry juice all over the place? and you think screw it, and start savagely going at it with your hands? That’s how this tastes. Mmm.

I’m totally eating my next piece of strawberry rhubarb pie with my hands… Yup. I totally am. :)
I’ve got a bit of this in my tea drawer from a swap with Marzipan, and I think it’s time I gave my full attention to this tea.
This note was fantastic.

I’m really glad you liked it! Also, eating pretty much anything with your hands will make it taste better. Promise!

I always eat pie savagely. But, Rhubarb Strawberry pie I take and hide in a dark corner and mutter “my precious” to it.
Rhubarb Strawberry Pie is my Kryptonite.
I need to place an order with Butiki, I believe.

Well, it’s been slightly over six months since I’ve joined steepster, and I can’t say enough wonderful things about this community. Like many of you, I began my foray into the world of loose-leaf tea by discovering David’s Tea, and although I’ve ventured out and have discovered many other companies that I’m extremely fond of, there are still many of David’s teas that I hold close to my heart and I will always appreciate it as a starting point for my journey.

As for my preferences, I tend to prefer bold black tea, flavoured and unflavoured alike, and I almost always take my blacks with cream and sugar. This isn’t to say that I don’t enjoy a good, flavoured white though, and I’m slowly making my way through the incredibly confusing world of oolongs and greens. I am also not a fan of rooibos, although I am starting to suspect green rooibos may be ok, but you know how it is: when you’ve decided you detest a certain ingredient, you’ll notice it everywhere—perhaps even where it doesn’t exist!

Things other than tea: I’m engaged to be married to my best friend, and feel like the richest woman on the planet because of it. I am also a veracious reader, and I also happen to have an obsession with fragrances, and have amassed quite a collection, although it pales in comparison to some collections out there! As a result of this obsession, I also follow several fragrance blogs, and am always up for a chat about scent. I’m also almost completely blind, and this does indeed mean that I come complete with a guide dog, who unlike me, hales from the sunny California campus of Guide dogs for the Blind. I think I’ve rambled on long enough, but if there’s anything you’d like to know or if you just feel like chatting to someone, please don’t hesitate to send me a message.
