It was mostly a general comment, thanks for the hugs though :D It wasn’t really hell, just me forgetting stuff, worrying about other stuff. All is well in the land of tea once more :D

Butiki Teas

I agree, it certainly helps. I hope your day gets better.

Nightmares and work stress woke me up this morning. Blergh.
This tea remains sweet, mellow, and just a delight to sip on in a morning where I need to simutaniously calm down and wake up.
Its always hard to go back to work after a holiday. Sigh. Well, it must be done.

Nightshifter

I just ordered this one. Can’t wait to try it!

Veronica

Someday I’m going to place a Butiki order, and this is going to be the first tea in my cart. It sounds delicious!

Rosehips

It is! I hope that both of you like it when you get to try it. Its an almondy cookie/croissant loveliness.

There have been a lot of Butiki Tea’s reviewed today.
Is there a Butiki full moon or something? Hey Stacy, what are you cooking up now?

I have to confess that tonight I watched the (awkward moment)
Finale of “So You Think You Can Dance!” Can I see a show of hands? Who else has watched the entire 9TH season with me? Fess up!

Right before the Finale began, I made a whole pot of Almond Indulgence and settled down with my tray of tea, a mug, cream and sweetening. I WAS READY!

I told Stacy that this tea reminds me of Apple Pie. I don’t know why since it’s an Almond tea but I think of Apple Pie when I taste it. In fact, this tea only needs a nudge of spice and it would make a great Chai. (Thinking about it and scheming I filed that thought under: Future Experiments with Tea.)

My favorite way to drink Almond Indulgence has been with cream and sweetened. I love it this way. I’d like it steeped in milk too. (Note to self…“Try milk steeping.”)

Feet up and mug in hand, I watched the results of the last show of the series. What creative choreography and gifted young dancers. They’ve inspired me. The Arts have always inspired me.

Does it matter that I can’t dance like those young, strong dancers.
No!
I dance with them in another way. I soar in my spirit with every lift, bending and spinning or rising up light as a leaf on the wind, my feet hardly touching the ground.

I fly!

The abandon that I still remember from earlier days, my younger years… playing a classical piece on the piano or putting my fingers on a canvas, creating thick, emotional strokes in the oil paint.

You never forget abandon. And you enjoy observing the joy of it in others your whole life.

What talent!

Terri HarpLady

I love So you think you can dance! I totally missed this season, I don’t watch much TV. But I do love that show, & the amazing things those dancers can do!

Butiki Teas

Hmmm, what am I cooking up now? Well, I did just buy 5lbs of vegan mini marshmallows. Already ate 1/4 of a pound though. Doh!

I’ve only ever seen a handful of minutes of that show but what I saw was very cool. I’m not a big tv person.

Yogini Undefined

I love SYTUCD!! No shame or awkwardness here lol . It is very inspiring, isn’t it? :) I love this: “you never forget abandon”. So very true!

Terri HarpLady

My favorite season was the first one I watched. It was the season with Twitch. If I had time, I’d probably sit in front of Netflix & watch every season, one episode at a time. Little Terri would really like that, she LOVES wild abandon in all it’s forms. Our motto is “All of life is Art”, so we live for that kind of stuff!

Terri HarpLady

Stacy, I suspect it was Little Stacy who ate all those marshmallows! LOL!

Butiki Teas

Indeed it was Little Stacy. She has been known to eat whole bags of marshmallows in a day.

Bonnie

You’ll have to watch this season, Twitch was on several times and was on last night. AND the two winners…ah…a guy and girl…yes…they now choose two. AMAZING! BALLET DANCERS! Yes! They had to learn to loosen up.

Terri HarpLady

Bonnie, I bet they did! There have been so many awesome performances on that show, so many routines that made me cry like a baby, they were so emotional, so ‘real’. The only reason I don’t watch this show is because I’m oblivious, I need to be reminded when the next season starts, because I absolutely love watching these dancers push their limits & develop into even more amazing artist, week by week.
Stacy: “Free your inner child” I always say!

Bonnie

Don’t tell Stacy to free her inner Stacy Child Terri!!!! Every tea will have mini marshmallows in it!!!! Oh NO!

tigress_al

Stacy- mini marshmallows sounds very promising! Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Bonnie- I absolutely love SYTYCD!! I record every episode and watch them (without commercials). I am going to watch the finale this afternoon. I like watching how each dancer develops into someone they may not have known even existed.

Terri- that Little Terri is sure naughty sometimes isn’t she? lol

Butiki Teas

What would be wrong with putting mini marshmallows in everything? That sounds kind of awesome.

tigress_al-Thanks! Still in the idea stage.

Bonnie

It would be so fun to watch the whole season non-stop without commercials with you guys…and have tea’s…all out fav’s and marshmallows…ton’s…FUN!

Butiki Teas

That would be fun :)

Terri HarpLady Yay, Ms. Bonnie, lets do it right now!!!

Thank you to Will Work For Tea for this sample!

First, I taste the black base which is a smooth black with good almond flavour. Then the cinnamon at the end of the sip. It is a little bit astrigent but not overwhelmingly.

I brewed this according to Butiki’s website at boiling for 4 minutes. Now that I am writing this note, I noticed the steepster description says to steep for 2 minutes. Maybe that is why it is a bit astringent. And by my previous Butiki experience with tea, they are not usually astingent. So……next time I will only brew for 2 minutes.

I would rate it at maybe 84 right now but I will not rate it for now because I will try again later on and review.

Butiki Teas

Will Work For Tea-4 minutes is correct. 2 minutes is for our old blend. If you are finding it to be too astringent, I would recommend either using less tea (maybe a teaspoon) or steeping for a little less, maybe a minute less.

tigress_al

I will try that! Thanks Stacy

Butiki Teas

doh!, I meant tigress_al. Sorry about that.

Helena

hmmm.. I do four and didn’t notice anything wrong. In fact it’s in my favourite comfort tea category :D

I got a weird craving today for a peanut butter tea. Wouldn’t that be delicious? Well, the closest thing I can find in my cupboard is this nutty, smooth, almond tea. Yum yum! This is one of my favorites, and it’s definitely hitting the spot today. Somehow the second steep was even better than the first!

I really want to make an almond cake with this tea. Our wedding cake was two layers of almond cake and one layer of white cake with raspberry ganache. The only bite of almond cake I got was when we cut the cake and my new husband fed it to me. I’ve been craving almond cake ever since ‘cause I seriously missed out. I told the caterers to pack up any leftover cake but somehow it ended up at the in-laws’ house and they apparently ate it all already. *sigh.

Hmm, looks like I’m running low though. I’m going to need more of this one soon! How else will I make delicious almond cake and have some tea left over to drink with it? ;)

EDIT: I did end up buying more of this and making an almond tea cake with it. It was super delicious! It came out kind of like pound cake and was heavily almond flavored. The buttercream icing cut the heaviness of the cake nicely. Yum! To see some photos, go here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/96132028@N08/sets/72157633585210978/

I would totally buy a peanut butter tea…

Butiki Teas

Awesome, that almond tea cake looks delicious! :)

Fjellrev

Mighty scrumptious-lookin’ cake there! I’d personally like a peanut butter filled pretzel tea. One can only dream.

CHAroma

It looks like 52teas has done several peanut butter + other stuff teas. Red Leaf appears to have the only pure peanut butter tea, but I don’t see matcha and peanut butter as being a very likable combo for my palate. Someone needs to make a peanut butter black tea pronto!

I think Stacy told me she reblended this one. My previous notes were based on the Cookie version. The review below is based on the new Indulgence. (I wish she still offered them both!)

Indulgence…first impressions…

I’ve never tried an Almond flavored black quite like this and for that I am VERY greatful!

The almond slivers are generous. The vanilla is wonderful! The cinnamon is in the background but play a nice role! This has a neat floral hint to it too! And it’s fairly creamy as well! I REALLY like this.

It is drastically different from the cookie version

Butiki Teas

This one has been re-blended. I am no longer using artificial flavorings but I could always use a different tea base for custom orders.

sarai

That sounds like a delicious tea!

TeaEqualsBliss

Stacy – I LOVE them both! :) Glad this re-blend is natural and not artificial! That’s always a PLUS :)

Sipdown! 825.

I think I liked this tea better this time than the first time I drank it. I really do think that 2-minute infusions are the way to go with flavoured black teas. Anyhow, I gulped this one down too quickly so I can’t entirely remember how it tasted, except that it was nutty and a bit sweet, completely smooth, and quite tasty! It looks like I may not have resteeped it last time, so hopefully I will manage to tonight, and see how it holds up.

Just a while ago, I was flipping through a library book and came across a bunch of cereal flakes embedded near the spine. Looks like someone was studying the Markedness Differential Hypothesis for breakfast. Appetizing on all levels.

I’ll admit that I had this tea black last week but didn’t write a review since I didn’t know what to think of it. But now that I added soy milk and a bit of sugar, it’s a lot better.

Before I go onto the flavour, let me mention how beautiful the dry leaf is. I absolutely love the addition of amaranth petals in here. The smell of the dry leaf reminds me of the almond biscotti my family used to buy at Costco. Not sure if they even make it anymore but it was super almondy, as is the scent of the dry leaf.

The milk and sugar really let the almond flavour pop. I can imagine that adding a dribble of almond extract to a cup of smooth black tea with milk will produce similar results.

sipdown!
Made with dairy milk, and it was not nearly as amazing as with the almond. Still def getting the cookie note though. Oh well, c’est la vie!

CHAroma

I love putting almond milk in this one too.

Indigobloom

It was sooooo good that way, I was shocked!!

A good Almond Tea is very hard to find. Most are either sick with artificial flavors or have a terrible after taste! Or both! This one is perfect! Now I must say – I had a sample of the almond cookie before and I think of the two if I had to choose just one I would go for the cookie version BUT I love this too. I know that Stacy has been blending and re-blending this mix for a while now – some people prefer one – some the other – I suggest that these become two totally separate blends! :) I know Stacy Im asking a lot lol but really they are both excellent and both different enough for people to have favorites! :)
This one here though is really very nice. Smooth, no bitter or astringent tastes, the cinnamon is very light and as TeaEqualsBliss said sits in the background and does so quite nicely. Mine is the almond indulgence version and still has this cinnamon quality. I must stress it is a very light cinnamon, not a hot one. The almond could not be any better – really perfect almond flavor – NO nasty after taste. I am quite certain this would be yummy with milk and or sugar but it is not necessary at all.
Thank you Stacy! Glad I ordered this one!

Butiki Teas

I see your point. It seems like there is a division between people who want a little cookie taste and others who want their strong almond. I would definitely consider doing 2 types of almond. To me this blend would probably be called Almond Cookie and then I would redo the Almond Indulgence so that it is a stronger purely almond flavor with no vanilla or cinnamon.

Indigobloom

cinnamon and almond really do seem to go together!

Azzrian

Yeah they do Indigobloom – thanks Stacy for considering! :)

Dinosara

Stacy I would love it if you would make a strong almond tea without cinnamon… I don’t want cinnamon in my almond tea, just sweet almond (like marzipan!) and a great black tea base.

Azzrian

That sounds great Dinosara I would want that but I also want the almond cookie with the splash of cinnamon and sweetness as well. LOL I just want everything :)

Butiki Teas

Dinosara-I will probably be working on that a few months from now. I have some new flavors that have priority but I like the idea of making a purely almond tea in addition to the almond cookie type tea I’ve got now.
