Got this as a surprise sample in my last butiki teas order. This tea was so pretty in the sample packet I almost didn’t want to drink it. It reminds me of really good vanilla icing

I know the recommendation was to add sugar, but I like to try most of my teas plain first to get a good baseline – don’t worry, I’m not going to rate it yet.

As it stands I’m definitely not getting anything like birthday cake from it, though the tea has a mildly sweet, slightly buttery flavour that is quite nice. I’m not getting an overwhelmingly ‘herbal’ flavour than accompanies many tisanes and it goes down quite smoothly without drying out my mouth. I bet this blend would be great with my homemade orange/vanilla simple syrup, I’ll have to test that theory soon.

This is now my second birthday tea of the day :) While this is very good and something I’d very much enjoy drinking on a daily basis (if I could afford it and if Butiki weren’t closing), it doesn’t taste like cake to me. It moreso tastes like delicate vanilla or marshmallow. I’m just having it hot and plain. Maybe cold or with a little cream and sugar? I still have enough of the sample for another cup. I’ll be trying it again!

Thanks for the sample, NayLynn!

My birthday and lunar eclipse tea. I brewed this and went outside to watch end of the total lunar eclipse. The smells sweet and herbal. There is some vanilla cake frosting taste. Mainly this tea is like herbal cake frosting. Interesting, and goes with my lunar event.

Flavors: Cake, Frosting, Herbs, Vanilla


Happy Birthday! I watched the end of the eclipse, too. It was really pretty.


Happy birthday Lariel!! Hope you have a good one :)

Are you kidding me? I hadn’t reviewed this before either?? UGGH. Anyhow, Birthday Cake. Fun concept, but by far not my favourite Butiki blend. Perhaps I don’t care overly for marshmallow leaf? Either way, I found this tea to be ok if one overleafs quite a bit, but rather baseless if not – the marshmallow leaf just doesn’t provide enough base for the flavours, I guess. The tea does develop quite a thick mouthfeel if you use a lot of leaf, which is interesting… Anyways, flavourwise this is mostly just sweet and creamy, which is perfect given the name, but I prefer the flavourings with Creamy Eggnog.

Lewis & Clark Traveling Teabox – Tea #2
It’s not my birthday but I’ll celebrate to a teabox arriving! I LOVE the idea for this blend. Marshmallow and many types of flower petals to either resemble confetti, frosting colors decorating a cake, OR BOTH. I might have oversteeped this at seven minutes as the flavor was a little tangy, reminding me of lemon somehow, maybe a sweet lemon frosting? I just though there would be more cake! But the dry leaf scent is very cake like. The color of the cup resembled a yellow cake. The little bit left in the mug the next morning tasted a LOT more like cake and frosting somehow. A unique blend!

From the Lewis and Clark TTB.

The dry leaf is so colorful and pretty, and smells really good, like ice cream cake! So I had high expectations for the taste. It wasn’t what I expected: not much cake-ness, only just a hint of “icing” beneath the base herbs. I didn’t feel like adding any sugar – I’ve never drunk marshmallow leaf or calendula before and was intrigued by how they tasted.

This tea reminds me of chamomile. :P


I normally don’t add sugar, but just the barest touch (less than .25t) made this really taste like cake. It was amazing.


If this ever crosses my path again I will definitely try it with sugar.

I can send you some whenever you’d like. :)


Ooooooooo let’s swap again!! :D

Too weak for me, and the sweet sugary confection-like flavor begins to bother me after the first few sips.

This tea was an add on to my last order from Butiki because it was *Stacy*’s birthday and I thought it was appropriate. Plus, I just kept reading reviews about the “frosting” in this tea.

Okay, people, you were right. This tea does taste like a white birthday cake with sweet, creamy vanilla frosting (once I added just a little bit of sugar to it.) (And don’t get me wrong, it was nice without the sugar, but the sugar really brought this tea to life.)

While normally I would prefer a chocolate birthday cake for myself, sometimes I wind up out with a friend who prefers to celebrate their day with white cake. It’s not normal or right, but it’s their choice, so I play along. And usually I enjoy my cake a lot. This cake was even better than those cakes. No, it wasn’t the chocolate cake with buttercream frosting of my dreams, but it was a delicious cake nonetheless.

I love this one, and it’s so cheap too! And caffeine-free! :D


Chocolate cake for me too. And everything chocolate ;)


That was why I added it, it was so inexpensive. It doesn’t taste cheap, though. It’s yummy!!!!!!

Cameron B.

I’m actually a vanilla cake girl! I do love chocolate, just not as much in cake. :P


Cake should be chocolate.


Cheri’s right, cake should be chocolate! And so should everything else :). I lol’d at the “it’s not normal or right” bit


Ohhh…it sounds yummy! I only like chocolate cake if its in the form of a whoopie pie!

My last Butiki sample from Mandy! This is actually one of the teas I’ve been most excited to try since I discovered Stacy’s website, and I ordered it in today’s sale. It’s very light and fluffy, mostly marshmallow leaf with various colored flower petals mixed in. Smells vaguely sweet and vanilla-esque.

This actually reminds me a lot of chamomile – it has that same musty, sweet floral taste. It’s very odd, considering there’s no chamomile in this blend… There’s also vanilla there, and a bit of butter. The whole thing is quite creamy and thick in texture.

I like this a lot! I can’t get over how similar it is to chamomile… I stopped buying chamomile blends because they’re just such a pain in the ass to brew. All those little tiny pollen strand things get stuck everywhere. But this is a nice alternative to that! Hooray!

Flavors: Butter, Cake, Marshmallow, Sweet, Vanilla

Very interesting. I can’t believe you don’t like eating chamomile bits in your tea!
