Finishing off my swap sample of this one from BrewTEAlly Sweet

This tea is pretty brilliant. Even a mediocre pu-erh base pairs really well with chocolate and chai spices! Not many teas from Della Terra impress me this much. I think this one and Walnut Brittle are my favorites. 2nd faves are the discontinued Snow Fairy (Vanilla Pineapple White) and the Oatmeal Raisin Cookie :)

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Absolutely love oatmeal raisin cookie!!

I was in the mood for something vegetal this morning, and this creamy greeny milk oolong is hitting the spot. Hurray for Oolong Sampler pack from Teavivre!

Another super sad Butiki sipdown! Hoping to re-stock this one soon. It is wonderful for Fall! I love nutty teas so much :)

JustJames

i sat there snacking on the nuts like a squirrel afterwards, lol.

Stephanie

The flavored pecans are SO GOOD! It would be a shame to waste them ;)

ifjuly

agreed, the nuts are an awesome snack.

Swap sample sipdown!

I’m enjoying this very much today. I think I’m getting the hang of how to brew these loose puerhs. Now I just need to order some more of it :)

I am finally trying a sample of BrewTEAlly Sweet’s favorite tea, Victorian Vanilla!

It has a mild black tea base and soft vanilla and rose flavoring. It’s drinkable, but not blowing me away or anything. I love trying new teas, though :D

BrewTEAlly Sweet

You have to mess with the water temp and steep time for the perfect cup! And I promise you will love it. It is very simple though. Maybe that’s why I love it.

Stephanie

We all have our favorites :) I will admit I oversteeped this!

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Ha ha true. And there u go:)

Almost out of this tea pout

I know I’m going to make a Butiki order soon. Have to decide what to re-stock and which new teas to try! This one is on the maybe re-stock list for sure.

I’m drinking it unsweetened today because I just ate half a cinnamon roll and I’m already feeling like I’m in a sugar coma. It still tastes very buttery and sweet strawberry to me even without added sweetner. Nom.

JustJames

i love this tea….. i get meringue and strawberries and all sorts of things.

ifjuly

agreed, it’s one of my favorites from butiki.

Well, this isn’t joking around. It tastes EXACTLY like Mexican hot chocolate. I made it as a latte with sugar. This was very fun to try! Thanks a bunch, Kaylee!

Kaylee

I’m amazed that we had such radically different experiences of this tea. Maybe the key really is to add proper milk…

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Yay!for mexican choco!

Stephanie

Do you like other mate teas Kaylee?

Kaylee

I like regular mate. I don’t think I’ve had any other flavored mates.

Thanks so much to the lovely teamore for this swap sample!

I’m a little leery of heavily floral teas, though a good jasmine green is one of my favorite things ever. This one does NOT taste like drinking perfume, LOL. It is delicate, feminine, sweet and totally drinkable! It is the kind of flavor I can get lost in…

I really want to try the Champagne Rose Cream now! ugh!!!!

Butiki Teas

The Champagne & Rose Cream is one of the teas I’m most proud of. I love how it came out. I definitely recommend giving it a try. :)

Stephanie

I’m hoping to place an order not next week but the week after. Fingers crossed for art fair monies! And fingers crossed you don’t run out of carrot cake before then! :)

Butiki Teas

Stephanie-I would really doubt that we would run out of the carrot cake by then. We have enough for 3 large batches. I could always set aside an ounce for you to be sure though.

Stephanie

Ok great! Sounds like you have plenty, don’t worry about holding any :)

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Oh man. Another to add to my wishlist for butiki. It just keeps getting bigger and bigger. Champagne & rose cream is already on there as well. Too many! Not enough mulah! :(

Butiki Teas

Stephanie-Ok. I will be announcing when we are getting low on it anyways.

BrewTEAlly Sweet-Glad to hear that our teas sound interesting! :)

keychange

I can vouch for the champagne and rose cream being exquisite, and am a huge, huge, huge fan of the rose violet calendula. It’s almost too beautiful for me to drink. Almost.

LuckyMe

Thanks, I’ll have to check this one out. I’ve been searching for a decent rose tea for a while now. Currently drinking Numi white rose which is okay but lacks the rose flavor I was expecting.
