How did I forget how wonderful this tea is?? I have just been too caught up in my cold brewing adventures, and not paying my beloved dessert teas close to enough attention. This so perfectly balances the tartness of the raspberry with the sweetness of the chocolate. I adore how light the base is. I find a lot of the times, black teas can get a little malty if the wrong base it used, but this is a nice, super light base. Overall, such a fantastic tea!

Not too bad. Smells strongly of raspberry when dried, and the same comes through when brewed. I had to resist picking the choco chips out to munch on though. Has a nice raspberry flavor though I wasn’t getting much chocolate. Which doesn’t surprise me since I haven’t yet found a tea with chocolate that I can really detect the chocolate in it. I guess I’m too finicky. If I want chocolate, I’ll just have to make some cocoa or something. Lol.

Tried it straight and it was alright. But adding a bit of brown sugar to it made it much nicer. I was considering trying it with some milk, but unfortunately this tea set off my allergies so I wasn’t able to finish a full cup before having to pour it out. Bummer. Still, it was a tasty tea while I could drink it.
At least now I know to add raspberry to my list of tea additions that I can’t have along with mango, pomegranate & coconut. x.x; /sigh/

Hit with a nostalgia blast because dry, this smells just like the little touristy knick-knack shop my mom had when I was little. Potpurri O__O but I don’t really taste raspberry OR chocolate, even though I know they’re in there, I saw them. My brain insists I am tasting flowery things to go with that potpurri smell, I guess. Nummy, though!

This tea was weirdly oily… is that strange to say?? There was alot of little oil bubble things at the top of the mug.. or is that just london water for you? I don’t know…

the taste of the rasberry was so strong that I couldn’t really get the chocolate in this,, even with actual chocolate chips.. maybe the oil was from this?? Sour after too much brewing…

tea is usually flavored with flavoring oils, and so it may be the residue from the flavoring oil that you’re experiencing.

I’ve noticed that with the teas we have with actual chocolate bits in them, there’s definitely a greasy residue.

I usually notice that with flavoured tea too… but this tea was so unbelievably oily…

Nom nom. Today’s been all rain stormy. On days like this cuddling up on the couch with a super indulgent tea is super comforting and cozy. So when Butiki arrived in the mail today, this sample was the first tea I broke into. :)

Anyway, this tea is so so good. The liquor is a dark amber, which is fitting. The texture is thick and rich, and the chocolate is like a semi-sweet dark chocolate which is perfect since I’m a lover of dark chocolate. :) The raspberry compliments with it perfectly, neither flavor overwhelm the other. It’s just like biting into a thick truffle with raspberry filling, except without the million calories.

Yummy! :)

Back from the US, and with my Butiki orders! This was one of my sample requests (thanks Stacy!) which I figured I should drink first because the chocolate chips had gotten a bit melty from being stashed in the attic (uninsulated & with a dark roof, it can get hot up there in warm sunny weather). If the quality suffered, I wouldn’t know it – the brew came out lush, with understated fruity and chocolaty flavors, and really sang with the addition of a tiny bit (~1/8 tsp) of sugar. The astringency of the black tea base was slightly stronger than I would like, but it didn’t detract from my enjoyment of the tea.

Exceeded my expectations. I’ll definitely buy a full bag of it when it’s cool enough to send chocolate in the mail again. Well done, Stacy!

My thanks to Stephanie for a surprise sample!

I’m going to start by saying that as soon as I smelled the dry leaf, I knew this tea wouldn’t be for me. The base is black tea – a rather bold one at that. I recently discovered I don’t like bold black teas in blends. Overall, I thought this tea was alright; it’s not that I thought it didn’t taste good. The combination of the freeze-dried raspberries and chocolate chips is strong enough to provide balance against the bitter base. I love the taste of the raspberries and chocolate, but I didn’t think it meshed well with this black tea.

Very tasty! Thanks to Stacy at Butiki for the sample.

I was surprised at how light the tea brewed up based on how potent it smells dry, but it was very flavourful! Definitely raspberry and chocolate. Not sure I would order this for myself but I enjoyed it thoroughly and have a bit left to try at home with some sugar as per the suggestions!

My sister came over earlier and after I made her smell all of my new teas, she wanted a cup of this because it smelled very interesting.

I enjoy truffles (especially raspberry truffles), and this tea honestly smells exactly like a raspberry truffle. It has a very strong chocolate scent, as well as a very strong raspberry scent.

When I took the first sip, I honestly thought it tasted a little weak. My sister, however, thought it was really, really good. I took a few more sips, and although I appreciated the light flavor, I decided to add just a little bit of honey. The description said that sugar would awake the tea, so I thought I would try it.

I thought that the honey definitely brought out some of the flavors. After I added the honey, I thought that the chocolate note was definitely a lot stronger. I was very impressed.

I really enjoyed this tea, and could definitely see myself drinking this again after dinner as a desert tea. If I had it again, I would probably add just a little bit of honey to it.

Aroma: Chocolate raspberry, just like a truffle should smell
Liquor Color: Medium brown
Liquor Flavor: Well balanced chocolate raspberry flavor with a slight woody base that pairs well with the flavors
Notes: This was my first Butiki experience. From the moment I smelled it, I noticed right off the bat that it smelled like the real deal. Very natural, flavors are very well balanced and it’s delicious!
