I received my Black Friday order from Butiki today, I’m so excited!! I ordered 16 teas so I didn’t know which one to taste first. I closed my eyes and picked this one randomly, what a great start!

The dry leaves smell like Werther’s hard candies, yum! The assam tea base is delicious. It’s malty and doesn’t have any bitterness. It’s wayyy better than the only other assam I’ve tried (Assam Banaspaty from Davidstea). The caramel taste is subtle and complements the black tea very well. I was expecting the flavouring to be more noticeable because of the very strong smell, but I realize it’s not really what Butiki is about.

I am used to artificially flavoured teas that don’t even taste like tea anymore. I was so tired of it that I decided a few months ago to stop buying flavoured teas. I made an exception for Butiki teas because I had heard they were amazing. Even if this is only my first cup of tea from them, I am already very impressed. This seems to be a completely different world of flavoured teas.

I was able to resteep this with still a lot of flavour left :)

I started drinking tea only a few years ago and I enjoy it because there are so many different kinds to try. I love to step out of my comfort zone and taste a wide variety of flavours. I am very curious about the different types of tea and how they are processed. I also appreciate traditional or antique teaware.

This is how I rate teas:
100 : Extraordinary delicious
81-99 : Very good, I enjoy it a lot
66-80 : Good, but not in my favorites
51-65 : Ok, not impressed
36-50 :Disappointing but it isn’t bad
16-35 : I don’t enjoy drinking it
0-15 : Absolutely disgusting, I can’t drink it

In addition to being a tea drinker, I am a foodie, a traveler, an historical junkie, a geek that loves to play video games, a bookworm and a cat lover :)

English isn’t my first language so I hope I’m not butchering it too much!
