Mmmmm….this tea has a mildly earthy& very light grassy base to me
and the apricot is subtle, but really enhances it.
The brown crystal sugar does give the apricot flavoring more depth.
This is something I need to order more of ASAPFYI, if you have not
yet tasted this, don’t bother with a sample…Just order …
If you like apricot, you will love this tea.


I would never have guessed it got better as it cooled :-)
Go figure…I sucked it down too fast the first time…lol…
Grinning like a donkey eating thistle the entire time.
Drinking it slightly cool really amplifies the apricot & that is sooooo GOOD!


Drinking a Twinings Chamomile with vanilla and wishing I am drinking this.
The chamomile with vanilla is not bad, mind you, but I am dreaming of
another Butiki order with AT LEAST an ounce of this in the very near future…
Butiki, I hear you calling my name ;-)


Yep, I really enjoyed this one, too. I grabbed the guayusa pack, I highly recommend it!

Apricot Guayusa! My first flavored guayusa. This is definitely better than unflavored guayusa. Nice apricot flavor. It’s not bad. I wish I had more to say about it, but it’s a fairly simple cup of tea. There’s not a lot of dimension to guayusa in my opinion. It’s a unique flavor, just not one of my favorites. It is nice every once in a while for a change of pace. Thanks to Kittenna for the chance to try another Butiki creation!

Not my favourite. I definitely recommend you try Good Morning Sunshine and/or Killer’s Vanilla! Or Tangerine Creamsicle. They’re all far, far better IMO!


I have heard a lot of good things about Good Morning Sunshine.

One of the best flavored guayusa’s I have had! I LOVE Apricot and this is PERFECTLY Flavored! WOW! Awesome!


Bliss……I noticed lately you’ve had several reviews from Butiki Teas. Since they are a fairly new company, what is your overall impression of the company—teas, customer service, etc.? Thanks!


I LOVE basically EVERYTHING about Butiiki…the tea quality, the thoughfulness behind the blends, Stacy is wonderful and her customer service is top notch! He NATURAL INGREDIENTS, and many vegan offerings to traditionally-non-vegan ingredients (in those said ingredients). Yeah…I’m a FAN!!!!

This is my first experience with Guayusa, thanks to JustJames for sending me this in our recent swap.

I don’t normally read tasting notes before I drink my tea, but I was curious about what others thought of guayusa before I tried it because I’ve only recently heard of it. It seems like there are a lot of people on the fence about the taste, but I ended up really enjoying it. I love the way the subtle sweet apricot flavor works with the earthy taste of the guayusa. It is a genuine apricot flavor too, something that I’ve found is very difficult to find in a tea. I could see myself drinking a lot of this especially on the mornings when I’m dragging. The only problem is that after only a few sips it triggered a severe migraine, which is a shame, because I really loved the flavor and could see myself drinking this a lot. I’ll have to try it again another day and see what happens.

Oh no, sorry to hear about the guayusa triggering your migrane. I heard that from one other person as well. Is that from the caffeine content?

Short Sorceress

Caffeine isn’t normally a trigger for me, so I’m not really sure.

Butiki Teas

Huh, I wonder what it is then. Sorry to hear about the migraine though. I had one today myself (from the weird weather changes), so I know how brutal they can be.

Yum! This is really good. The smell of the dry leaf smelled like a sweet apricot and hoped that brewed it would taste just as good, and it does! I also love how the subtle spice of the guayusa works with the apricot. Really delicious way to wake up this morning. Thanks for creating this one Stacy!

A sample from my last order. With this one, I maybe, just maybe have tried all of their guayusa blends from Butiki except for the plain. I guess I requested this as a sample for just that reason! They’re all delicious – all upper 90 ratings from me (except for Killer’s Vanilla which has an 89 maybe because it just isn’t my thing)! I’ll be especially sad when Butiki is gone because I really don’t see many other tea shops with guayusa at all. I’d really like to stock up with an order at some point but I don’t have too much in the tea budget, especially as I wanted to place a Bluebird order for some time now.

Anyway, this is the usual amazing guayusa. No actual apricot as far as I can tell, but the flavor is there (not overpowering, but noticeable). It pairs very well with the guayusa, though I seem to say that with every Butiki guayusa blend…maybe because Butiki KNOWS what to pair with guayusa. I don’t know how natural an apricot flavoring it could possibly be, just added to the leaves. I like the other guayusa blends just a bit more though.

Pass the Stash

There is something about this tea that I do not like..but I can’t put my finger on it.. It does taste much better with a touch of sweetener as it brings out the apricot flavor. Just not my cuppa.

This is my first guayusa and I’m liking what I see (taste)! Slightly grassy with a delicate apricot flavor. With a little added truvia, the apricot is more pronounced without being overwhelming. Quite yummy and fruity and fresh tasting. I really want to try this iced (I’ve been really into iced teas lately thanks to all of this Florida heat).
Thanks MissB for sending me a sample of this!

Today was a Butiki sort of afternoon.

This was one of two (super old) sample sipdowns. I didn’t expect to like this, I admit.

First, I had no idea what guayusa would taste like…second, I’ve been having terrible luck with fruity teas lately, to the point where I talked myself into deciding I’m not a fan.

I brewed this up (as per Stacy’s directions) in my Contigo mug when I took the baby for a stroll (i do this frequently, my husband thinks I’m strange – “you’re bringing tea? Uh, nothing like hot tea to refresh you on a walk..”)

And then I threw a couple ice cubes in there because damn that thing keeps your tea boiling hot.

When I took my first sip I was surprised at how creamy it was. Creamy and apricotty (peachy, really, becauseI can’t tell the difference)….and not in a synthetic way.

I imagine the guayusa taste was in there too, but if didn’t notice much aside from a vague earthiness, nothing off putting.

I was pretty impressed with how tasty this was, especially given the age. I bet fresh it would be totally delicious.

Ok Butiki Tea, you sure showed me!

Go figure, though.


Butiki afternoons are awesome, and guayusa is also awesome.


It doesn’t seem to have much taste, which I guess is good!


This is one I’ve not tried yet, but I’m totally in love with Butiki’s Guayusa blends!

I had a cup of this before and didn’t review it as I got caught up in things. I know I liked it at the time. This is my second and last cup from MissB’s sample. This tea brews up so dark and has an earthy flavour a bit like pu’erh but milder than pu-erh. I do taste the flavour that’s supposed to be apricot but I don’t know if it’s an apricot flavour to me. It’s very subtle. I am enjoying this cup of tea but not enough to want to buy it.

As the tea cools down I am tasting the apricot more. Definitely much better as it cools so I’m bumping up my rating.


Ah, glad you were able to knock one off the list. :)


Still got lots to go through! lol
