From Butiki Teas

Azzrian’s Custom Blend via Butiki Teas.
This blend was inspired by a beer I used to love drinking.
It was a lambic beer sweetened and flavored with peaches.
Thus we took an organic guranse and mixed in cascade hops, peaches, and peach flavoring.
All organic, all delicious!

Okay finally some snippits from the full review which will be on http://sororiteasisters.com/ on the 26th

Stacy of Butiki Teas and I communicated via email for weeks developing my dream tea. I knew I wanted a tea modeled after my favorite Lambic brew. It was a peachy, sweet, and hoppy beer. What Stacy created not only brought back that exact flavor but she did so in a natural, organic way that makes this tea just BURST with ripe juicy flavors! Now I know many of us tea drinkers love to eat our tea! We pick out the pieces of fruit, nuts, herbs, etc from our steeped leaves and chew on them. Often times we end up spitting it out due to being either bitter, or chemical tasting, or whatever but when I pick out the big, sweet, juicy peaches from my spent leaves, they are so very very good! Just like I picked them from a tree in an orchard! This flavor is not only noticeable in the aroma of the cup but in every single sip! Big, ripe, juicy, natural, bursting with flavor peaches!

The hops, they are not bitter as many people think of bitter, they don’t make you pucker up like eating a sour candy. They are herbaceous, a tart sharp note on the middle back part of the tongue.

Now there are several companies that do the custom blend thing. Only a couple that do it in an interesting way. Most custom blends are made by selecting some elements from a drop down menu and thats it. Now not to knock those types of custom blends as I actually have made quite a few from various companies and have loved them! The difference here however is that Stacy will really work with you one on one over a period of time, until the exact idea of your blend is captured and you agree with the outcome!

There is a sweetness that was imperative in this blend yet the only sweetener in this tea are the peaches themselves! The hops are the exact species I had asked for, and the base works in perfect harmony.

Its a really long review so be sure to check it out! :)

Sil

This sounds like it could be incredible.

Veronica

I want… I need… :)

Azzrian

Maybe Stacy will make up a batch sometime and see how it sells.

Butiki Teas

I do have this on the list of teas that will be added to our website though it will be slightly modified.

Azzrian

Awesome!

Sil

Yay!

Kittenna

Odd – I thought I had made a comment on Azzrian’s other post about this tea… I have some that she sent me, Sil – and I’m bringing it next weekend as I didn’t care for it at all. Do not like hops, it seems!

Sil

Dibs! I call dibs!

Kittenna

Haha, I think there’s enough for each of you to have a cup? As always, Azzrian was incredibly generous with the sample she sent! I only drank a cup’s worth, and that was all I needed to satisfy my curiousity, haha.

Well this has been a gorgeous Sunday. Reading, tea and a mid-50 degree day in January, with no plans on the horizon. All weekends should be like this.

I picked this tea mostly because it’s one of the few Butiki teas from my last order that I have not tried yet. That and it smelled so temptingly of peaches when I opened the bag that there was no way I’d be able to try anything else. As it is I want time to speed up to summer so that I can eat a fresh one…peaches in season are one of my favorite things.

Once steeped the fresh peach smell turns into banana and peach. Maybe the hops did that? The flavor is sort of bitter banana peach, too. I’m drinking these first sips plain but I’m thinking this might need sugar to help ease the bitter notes…

Ah, much better. The sugar emphasizes the juiciness of the peach that much more and reduces some of the bitter flavor, which I am now realizing is from the hops and not the tea base. For some reason I assumed hops = carbonation. I’m sure it surprises no one when I say that I’m not a big beer drinker.

This is absolutely a fantastic tea though- outstanding with a little bit of sugar. The flavor accuracy of the peach is my favorite part, and I imagine this would be perfect iced in the summer. If it lasts me that long

Yep, the hops is bitter and this particular hops has strong grapefruit notes. Our other beer tea, the hops adds a spicy flavor with minimal to no bitterness.

Oh man! I don’t like beer,but the hops in this lends such an amazing counterpointt the peach! It brings out the sweetness while at the same time deepening it. Sweet and bitter dance in complicated patterns around my mouth. While trying to figure out what it tastes like my mind flips back and forth between peach sour gummies and peach pie, but neither of those seem quite right. I really need to have this a few more times to fully diagram the flavor.

Oddly enough I also tasted onions on the first couplef sips, which could just be a fluke, but I foundit strange.

Sil

mmmmm onions and peaches! haha

Fuzzy_Peachkin

Maybe according to “Holes”.

Rosehips

“Holes!” I loved that book. Ha, I hadnt even thought of that. Perfect.

Terri HarpLady

I still haven’t tried this one…yet…I need to remember to request a sample with my ‘next’ order.

Sil

Terri…you remember that list you were supposed to make for me with those teas I can’t recall? Add this one to it. I’m pretty sure I have some? I think? Lol

Fuzzy_Peachkin

Rosehips- I only saw the movie. I probably should read the books

Sil and Terri- You guys crack me up!

Azzrian sent me some of this – it’s her custom blend via Butiki Teas and I am pretty jazzed about trying it! I couldn’t find it in the database so I am sorry if it’s a double!

It sort of smells like a crusty-peach bread stick or something…prior and during infusion.

The liquor is a light orange-brown…there are floaties AKA a texture to it, too.

After infusion was complete – it smelled more like fresh peaches and wheat or barley or maybe even a little hay-like. There is a bit of a brothy-type flavor/texture to it, too, that was surprising yet welcomed.

I guess in a way it taste like a flat-beer…but in a tasty way! :)

This is completely different than other teas I have had…I do really like it. It has a pleasant morphing flavor roller coaster going on and I find that fascinating!

As it sits at room temp for a few moments it does get sweeter and peachier. YUM! This is tasty!

Butiki Teas

Glad you like this one. It was a fun journey creating this with Azzrian. Just so you know, she was spelling this “Peach HoppiTea”. There are actual Cascade Hops in this, which is what gives it that bitter taste. Eventually, we plan on offering a similar version.

Sil

Want! mmm peachy teas!

DaisyChubb

Sounds amazing

KeenTeaThyme

this sounds awesome!

Awkward Soul / Oolong Owl

mm floaties! Sounds very unique of a tea!

Tea #27 from HHTTB2

Let’s talk a minute about Wisconsin. You know, the state with the highest percentage of binge drinkers in the US. There’s also over 130 breweries just kind of chilling here. We’re not alcoholics , we’re professionals.

So, a beer-inspired tea is right up my alley and I’ve been dancing around the idea of trying this one for a while. I was really excited when it popped up in the tea box.

Once steeped, the tea has a primary bready/baked smell with juicy peaches. Like a peach oatmeal or unsweetened peach tarts. As far as taste goes, this is a very good peach tea! The Cascade hops definitely adds a slightly bitter herbaceous note with citrus accents that really pairs well with the peach. The peach is juicy, ripe and real peach tasting. And the base does have a malty quality, while still being quite light (but not thin). It becomes sweeter and juicier as the cup cools, as well. The aftertaste is mostly peach, with just a hint of lingering hops.

I really would like to make this into a tea syrup and make a fizzy beverage out of this!

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 0 sec
Ysaurella

Surprising for me (I’m French) : to me Wisconsin is a state where a town was named Eau Claire (!)…which means in English clear water…and you have the highest rate of binge drinkers ? Funny :)
Peach Hoppitea is a very very good & surprising tea even for me who don’t like beer.

moraiwe

Clear water? You mean vodka, right? (I know sarcasm doesn’t translate well, so I figure I’ll point out I’m kidding)

I’m kidding. But yeah. Wisco has lead in binge drinking (since the CDC has actually started classifying it) and drunk driving for a while now. Quite the legacy there.

Stephanie

Glad you enjoyed it!

Kaylee

How does one make a tea syrup? Because OMG that would be amazing. So many flavored teas would make great sodas!

moraiwe

Kinda like a simple syrup only with tea in place of the water. :) I typically go 3x strength on the leaves and do equal portions tea and sugar. Then add 1-2 tablespoons of that to 12oz soda water. It’s soooo good.

Stephanie

I’m so going to try making tea soda! How fun!

BrewTEAlly Sweet

How awesome! I’m going to have to try this!

yay! Thank you so much for sharing, Azzrian! A combination of my two favorite drinks! I had been hoping to get some back when Stacy mentioned it on the boards because I was seriously at the time at a place with a peach IPA on draft.

This being based on a lambic is interesting. I have only had a raspberry one, and they are way too sweet for me. This tea is not too sweet, but it is pretty peachy! I think Georgia would give it a seal of approval just based on that.

I am liking it better now that the cup is cold. I don’t even know what I got distracted doing, probably something with the bird given the feather stuck to the bottle of Chai Cola still on the table. I can taste the hops more now, which definitely makes it taste a bit more like an IPA. I looooove hops. And I imagine the base tea makes it all the better.

I’m going to have to try the guranse on its own at some point definitely.

This makes me especially excited for when I have the money for a custom blend, because I want it to be based on tripel beers I could so go for their flavor without their insane alcohol by volume numbers, as I learned the hard way on Saturday.

Thank you again Azzrian!

Azzrian

Yay so glad you liked it too! Stacy does a killer job with custom blends – her communication is amazing! :)
As are the blends! :)

Butiki Teas

Love Tripels! That would be a fun project.

Azzrian-Thanks, that’s kind of you to say! :)

0.9 tablespoons for 248 ml

The brewed tea has an enticing aroma. Creamy and baked good notes with a soft sweet peach. Reminds me a bit of peach oatmeal.

On the sip, pleasant malty sweetness. The sweetness is a sustaining note appearing slighty at the start of the sip, blooming into the middle and carrying through until the aftertaste. Very smooth tasting. Creamy notes in the flavour. Black tea notes present and peek out in the flavour near the end. All the flavours are very well blended. Velvety mouth-feel. Hint of flavourful astringency in the aftertaste.

Thanks to Kittenna for letting me try some of this one!

Yay!!!! So happy you enjoyed the blend I made with Stacy from Butiki and Kittenna thank you for passing it along!

Raritea

Really great combination of flavours! You did an awesome job Azzrian and Stacy!! :)

Azzrian

Thank you! :)

Butiki Teas

This blend was so much fun! I had so much fun working with Azzrian on this! :)

Ysaurella

I love this one as well, Stacy, do you consider selling it in your tea collection ?

Butiki Teas

Ysaurella-We will eventually be adding a version of this tea to our line. Instead of freeze-dried peaches it will just have dried peaches but we will be sticking with the same flavoring, same hops, and same tea. It will be a while though. I’m thinking around 2-3 months. I have also been playing around with the idea of another beer tea too. I don’t have anything solid yet but it will use a different type of hops.

Raritea

I’ll be watching out for that :)

Sil

You and me both raritea! :)

Ysaurella

that’s a great new Stacy :)

Kittenna

Azzrian – I knew when I wasn’t a big fan (mostly because I clearly dislike hops; the peach was great!) that I had to make sure the rest got shared! So Sil, Raritea, and Indigobloom each got a cup’s worth :)

This is a nice peach tea. Natural juicy peach tea. I’m not really getting the hops or beer that others experience. For me this is better HOT, it gets a bit astringent as it cools.

Thanks TheTeaFairy for sending me this sample.

TheTeaFairy

Oh! Maybe the dark forces are slowly dissipating, lol…
Funny, I’m REALLY getting the beer on this one, especially as it cools down. But I’m not much of a beer drinker, so what do I know!

Courtney

I wish I didn’t get hops haha!

Dexter

I don’t like beer at all. Really happy to NOT get the beer….

Courtney

I wanted to love the Rhubarb Vanilla Ale, but I also despise beer. Sigh.

Though I don’t drink as much flavoured tea as I used to, I still keep some variety around and I especially like to drink them during the Holidays.

This is a casual conversation between me and my brother on his last visit (M=me, B= bro)

M: Want something to drink? I’ll make some tea.

B: I’d prefer a beer.

M: I didn’t buy any, I’ll make you some beer tea.

B: ?????

M: Yes, I have a tea that tastes exactly like peach beer, pretttt-ty awww-some!

B: ?????

M: What, you don’t believe me?

B: Not even tempted. Do you have cola, rootbeer?

M: Hmmm…no. Sorry…but…dare I say it…I have rootbeer tea, does that count?

B: Sis, you need to see a doctor, really. I worry. It’s bad. Addictions need to be treated.

M: Well, before we rush to the emergency, sure you don’t want to give peachy beer a try?

B: Either that or tap?

M: Pretty much, yep…

B: Alright, but just to please YOU! Promise this never happened, I don’t want urban legends to start spreading, I have a reputation to preserve, I’m a beer guy and I don’t do peachy girly tea!

M: Oh, common, just quit it Macho Man, we all know you watch General Hospital every day. A little bit of tea won’t kill ya!

B: General Hospital is underrated.

M: Whatever… So? How do you like them now, peachy beer tea?

B: Honest? Tastes just like day after lukewarm flat beer that accidentally got mixed with peach baby food puree during the party. I. Don’t. Ever. Want. To. Drink. This. Again. Please?

(Sorry Stacy, that’s not MY opinion but HIS, remember?)

M: Ah!!!! So you admit it does taste like beer!!! Told you! Please admire and appreciate this as it should. Takes hours and hours of practice and immense knowledge and wisdom to create that kind of magic. Requires tea alchemist skills that only Stacy has acquired. Respect. Remember that, bro.

End of conversation. At this point, we lost it. We are cracking up, crying of laughter.

Me and my brother have always «played» together like this. As any healthy brother/sister relationship, we love to tease each other. His visit was a big surprise, I wasn’t expecting him. He didn’t say so, but I know he came to check on me, to make sure I’m ok. His presence chased away the darkness for a little while. He’s got my back, he always has and I love him so much for that. Family is everything folks…

Cheers bro, love ya!

P.S. To make things clear, I do love this tea!!!

JustJames

lololololol!

MissB

Amazing. I look forward to trying this, and will most definitely think of this story when I do!

Ysaurella

agree this tea is delicious. I miss my brother…enjoy your relationship it’s precious :)

Bonnie

He’s blessed to have you too!

Terri HarpLady

I love this post!

Sil

awesome! haha

TheTeaFairy

@James: I wrote this at 5am, and didn’t read it back before posting it…lol, now I feel silly … My brother is going to kill me when he finds out his secret is out on the web, hahaha!

@MissB: ok, think of the post, but forget about the lukewarm baby food please, lol!

@Ysaurella: yes, I feel very lucky to have him. Sorry that you don’t seem to see yours as often as you’d want to…

@Bonnie and Terri: :-) :-):-)

Butiki Teas

That is too funny. :) You seem like you have a wonderful relationship with your bro.

keychange

I’m so glad your brother popped in to check on you. Isn’t family wonderful like that? You can insist they leave you be but they love you enough to ignore you and check in anyway :D.

TheTeaFairy

@Butiki: Glad you’re not upset about the flat beer comment! Your tea often triggers fun little adventures in my household :-) And yes, our relationship is the greatest, meaning we also fight and argue very well together like true brothers and sisters!

@Keychange: You seem to know exactly what I’m talking about :-)

I live in a brewery town, BEER TOWN USA is what it should say on the town sign!
Breweries buy ingredients for beer in the tea shop and the 2 spice shops in Old Town. Fields of golden hops grow close by. New Belgium Brewery, Coopersmith’s, Odell’s, Feisty Spirits Distillery, Fort Collins Breweries, nine just within a few blocks of each other.

I wondered what a Hoppi Tea would taste like? With some excitement, I rushed with my little packet of Butiki Tea for Andy (tea blender) to taste. I love Stacy’s creativity and had been talking to Andy about a beer tea creation of his own for the tea shop since we’re a brewery town (but not a Peach Hoppi copy).

When I arrived at the shop, people were wandering in after classes ended at the University. It was the end of a hot (95 degree) afternoon. Today was the first NFL football game of the season with the Bronco’s playing and I was asked to explain football to a newly arrived Cambodian agriculture student who had never seen a Football game before and had just slept in a bed with a mattress for the first time.

I took a deep breath and did my best.

By the time I finished my explanation, I needed a real beer (and he probably needed one too!). He asked me why I came alone today to the tea shop, because he had seen me before with my granddaughters Schey. I knew it would blow his mind, but I had to tell him that I lived by myself and not with my daughter and 8 grandchildren. He was a bit shocked at the idea that I as a grandmother lived separate from my family.

Ah well. Culture shock. Poor young man.

I love my tea shop! There’s never a dull moment!

Back to the Hoppi Tea!

Joe did a splendid job steeping a batch for tasting and everyone had pretty much the same reaction to the taste.

The comments were:
This is a drinking tea and not a tea tasting tea!
Meant for drinking with food more than on it’s own.
A little bitter but in a great way!

I listened to the opinions and comments around me and agreed that the tea should be ‘drunk’ not ‘sipped’.
I’d prefer drinking the tea with a food like pizza which would counter the sweet-bitterness with saltiness (classic beer pairing foods would work well…chili and so on!).

I liked the flavor! Can’t wait to play with it at home some more!

Stacy, some more brewery tea’s!!!

Terri HarpLady

Nice review, Bonnie!

Bonnie

You always make people feel special Terri!

Terri HarpLady

That’s because people are special, Bonnie! Including you! :)

Butiki Teas

Bonnie-absolutely, we have a line of beer teas planned. I would love to hear what Andy comes up with if he does decide to try a beer tea. They are very difficult to blend. The fruit and hops really fight for dominance and finding the sweet spot was challenging. I also recommend adding just a very tiny bit of sugar. It will be a little more beer like, but too much sugar will cancel out the hops.

Bonnie

True, true! The breweries really do get creative, especially Odell’s with some local flavors that only sell here. There’s curry beer for instance, and naturally Lugene Chocolate Milk beer, fruit beers like the current fresh fruit… raspberry cherry. The next release has pepper, banana with hops and stone fruit. One hoppi beer is pretty floral.
New Belgium pairs hops with Pumpkin juice, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Allspice, Cranberries, Lemongrass. HUM… this is their Pumpkick Beer. Oh yes, they have Yuzu and Imperial Coffee Chocolate Stout. So, you see that I kid you not when my mind wanders and wonders about BEER and TEA! (There are a dozen other breweries I could look at.)
