If I didn’t know any better, I would have thought this was a hojicha with rose. I am getting vegetal flavoring and sweet roses but there is also a slight roastiness that I guess is from the combination of black/green teas. It’s not bad but not particularly memorable for my tastes.

drank Pumpkin Irish Cream by Butiki Teas

Confession time! I didn’t know this was pu’erh when I requested it from rosebudmelissa and had I know that, I probably would have passed but since I asked for it, I have to at least give it a try.

Thankfully, the smell is far more delicious creamy pumpkin as opposed to earthy pu’erh. Luckily that seems to hold true. This is far more pumpkin than pu’erh. The base does give the tea am overall thickness that lends nicely to the notion of a creamy pumpkin tea while not impeding the flavor. The pumpkin itself comes through as rich thanks to the delicate balance of spices. The one component I am not really getting is the Irish cream. It is a sort of creamy tea but had I not known it was meant to be Irish cream, I would have just attributed that to the pumpkin.

Anyways, thank you rosebudmelissa for the chance to try something new!

This is better as a cold brew as it is less buttery and more caramel but not so much better that I am finding it enjoyable. Thank you Roswell Strange for the chance to try it but this is one tea I am not sad to see go. 215.

I feel like this one grows on you; though I don’t think it ever read as buttery to me.

The hot cup was like movie theatre popcorn butter and roses

This is a tasty, tasty tea. It is very smooth but also has a caramel maltiness. There is also a bit of leather and I mean that in the best way possible. It all comes together for one rich and comforting cup that I am grateful for the chance to try. Thank you Dexter for the share! 216.

Thank you Kittenna for sharing but this isn’t for me. At all. It got dumped. I am grateful for the chance to try something new though so I do appreciate the share. 217.

Turns out last time I thought I had this, I was actually drinking Saskatoon Berry (I just have to remember to move that tasting note over to the right page). This one is very similar except with a little less berry flavor and a little more hibiscus. There is also a cherry component to this that is pleasant but adds to the tartness. Granted this was steeped longer which could account for this being more flavorful. It’s not a bad cup but not something I will be seeking out in the future either. Still it was fun to try so thank you Roswell Strange for the share! 218.

I am not an oolong lover so I am definitely not the target audience for this tea. With that said, I can still appreciate that someone who likes this type of tea might be quite pleased with this one. It has strong floral and grass notes while also containing an element of cream that floats around the cup. It’s nice though not for me. 219.

Thank you Roswell Strange for sending me yet another new tea to try. I made this as a latte because I figured a “spice” tea may be similar to a chai which definitely excels as a latte. Unfortunately, even the milk couldn’t help this. It tasted like mud. Sweet, cinnamony mud. This got dumped. 220.

Thank you Roswell Strange for sharing but I just don’t know how I feel about this. It sort of tastes like rosey butter. Seriously. It’s weird and I don’t think I’m a fan, at least as a hot brew. The rest of my sample is cold brewing now so hopefully I have more luck with it prepped that way.

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
