drank Coconut Cream Pie by Butiki Teas
106 tasting notes

Oh my goodness, the SMELL. It’s so delightfully creamy and sweet. I could tell I was in for a treat as soon as I opened the package I got in the mail! (Thanks to Stacy for the generous samples!) I had to brew this one up right away. How could I not? After pouring hot water the juicy, robust aroma of the rooibos caught my noise. The coconut notes receded a bit, but are still obviously there. It smells like a tropical paradise. I’m getting impatient waiting for my tea to cool. :)
After sipping…ah. This is nice. Tart, vibrant fruity flavors play across my tongue first, then step back to let the coconut really shine. Creamy coconut goodness. :) And a little buttery-ness in the aftertaste, to. The rooibos seems to become less pronounced as the tea cools. I’m having a hard time putting my mug down! I’m also curious to see how this holds up to adding a touch of soy milk…hmmm.

Bio

I have been drinking tea all of my life, but I have only been drinking loose leaf since 2013. It has been a journey! I’m amazed at how much my tastes have changed just over the past year. I have met such lovely, sweet individuals on Steepster and am so glad to have become a part of this community.

My cupboard is reflective of the teas I have on-hand. (Though, of course, not quantities.) I’m always up for swaps so if you want to trade teas just send me a message!

I love, love love pure black teas. Definitely my favorite. I also quite enjoy white teas, puerh, and darker/roasted oolongs. Matcha is a secret love that I neglect too often. I try to stay away from flavored teas, but I do enjoy a well crafted blend. I drink dessert teas on occasion—usually when I’m craving something sweet. It’s a mood-driven decision. Things I (usually) don’t like: green oolongs, rooibos, artificially flavored teas, straight greens.

Rating System
90+ The very best! Teas that I always need in my cupboard!
85-89 Teas that I enjoy immensely and will try to keep around.
80-84 Makes a very pleasing cup. I will enjoy drinking them, but won’t necessarily try to keep around. (There are exceptions.)
70-79 Decent, but could be better.
60-69 Mediocre.
40-59 Gross. I might still try to finish the cup.
39 & under Undrinkable. I probably dumped this cup. Depending on the specific rating, I probably threw the rest of the tea out as well. It’s basically me saying “I hate it” with varying intensity and inflection.

Some of my favorite tea companies are:
-Whispering Pines Tea Co.
-Verdant Tea
-Mandala Tea
-Butiki Teas
