576 Tasting Notes
It’s the first day in a very long time that I haven’t had a migraine. Whoo-hoo! That means I can go to work and feel productive, like a human.
I celebrated with this tea. This is easily one of the best cinnamon teas I’ve ever had, and one of my all-time overall fave teas. It’s a cupboard staple. I wish more cinnamon teas could be like this one! :)
And it’s only partly because of the Pop Rocks… ;)
No rating as I’m not too keen on white teas, so I don’t have a basis to judge this one.
This is a light, playful blend of peppermint and botanicals. It’s soothing and spa-like. I bet it would be delicious iced! I was able to get two infusions from one round, always appreciate leaves that last longer than one infusion.
The peppermint plays off the floral taste nicely. I’m not normally a fan of roses (not in my tea nor otherwise) but I don’t mind the light floral taste when it’s paired with refreshing peppermint.

I love anything plum – especially anything spiced plum. And I’m learning that I love this flavor any time of year, so I’m enjoying a cuppa well after the holidays and it’s not (too) weird!
This is a lightweight plum tea – smooth and comforting. There’s just a hint of spice, but I prefer that over what could be a deadly dose of hibiscus. (eep, the worst) I’d rather taste the plum, which this tea delivers!
I bet this is amazing deep in the heart of the holidays!
Got this as a sample in one of my orders. When? Beats me!
I feel like I’m coming down with a cold or something, but it could be allergies, so I just need something mellow and fennel-y. That always helps me.
I dug around my tea bins at work and found this one; gave it a try. The dry leaves smell totally different than the brewed tea, which is random. Dry, the leaves remind me of mint and fennel. Brewed? I’m thinking of…pizza. I told you it was random!
The tea itself reminds me of a tea I used to drink when I was little, an herbal concoction my late grandmother would drink to cure hangovers. (She was Irish…) I’m also enjoying more of a vegetable-y aroma, like grass or summertime outdoors.
Not sure how to rate this one. I’ll hold off on the rating until I brew up another cuppa.
New Cupboard Staple.
This instantly wakes you up, the aroma is so lemon-y fresh and fabulous (both the dry leaves and while its brewing)!
I’m feeling really out of it today and very disconnected with reality. I’ve been so sick lately (the migraines) and out of work that I just hate being me sometimes. This is helping to fight that feeling.
The lemon-y pow kicks it up a notch once it’s brewed. This really is a new cupboard staple. If you try only one guayusa from Butiki Teas, try this one! :)
I’m trying to branch out to more guayusas so I had to splurge on Butiki Tea’s guayusa pack. This was one I would have tried regardless.
Love the packed-vanilla-punch! But even if there’s a loaded vanilla punch I still taste other flavors, namely mint. It’s almost calming too. I didn’t check out the flavors before reviewing because I didn’t want any suggestions or hints, but maybe there’s lavender in there or something like lavender?
This is really good…although I’m not sure calming is what I need at 9:30 am! Time to try the Good Morning Sunshine variety! :)
