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!

Fluffy Buttercream Icing…… without hurting my teeth :) I think I will listen and try it with a sprinkle of sugar when my order comes in.

Happy Birthday Stacy! Happy I got a chance to try this on your b-day before ordering it today.

Butiki Teas

Thanks! :)


I added this one to my order on Friday. I haven’t had it yet, but I figured it was meant to be.


Yes, it was. I hope you enjoy it also. I would have got some even if I had not had a chance to try it, just maybe not as much.

Just popping into say something short and sweet about this tea.

It tastes like cake icing and cake. Well done! The array of leaves and flowers is beautiful and festive. It makes me feel like it’s my birthday when I sit down to drink it. I feel special.

It’s not my usual cup of tea to drink flavored tisanes, but this one is nice if you like this type of flavor. Myself, whenever I see something flavored like something I like better, it just makes me want the something better… i.e. spare me the caramel creme brulee coffee creamer and give me some caramel creme brulee! Or… rather than cake flavored tea… give me some tea!

I mostly requested this sample out of curiosity and because it is beautiful. But… if for some reason I couldn’t eat cake… maybe for dietary or health reasons, I feel like this drink would satisfy my craving more than not having anything at all. I’d drink it on my birthday!

Flavors: Cake, Frosting

This is a pleasant tisane, if not an outstanding one. It’s light and very sweet, even without any sugar added, and I’m getting vanilla frosting more than cake itself. I do wish it had more in the way of pastry notes, but as it is it’s still an enjoyable caffeine-free option (if not a standout like Butiki’s Peppermint Patty).

Finally beginning to try the teas from my Butiki order! I’ve been so excited but haven’t had time to try them. So this is the first. (:
I’ve never seen a tea like this before, it’s so soft and fluffy. It’s pretty cute. :P
As for how it tasted…this tasting note may or may not be super accurate.
I didn’t look at what time it was when I began steeping it because the power went randomly out. It didn’t take long to get my power on again, but I still am not sure if I over steeped it or not. xD If I did it was just a few minutes, but I don’t know.
Not sure that this tea reminds me of Birthday Cake…I can taste the vanilla and some kind of spice that I can’t exactly place.
Not really what I expected, but it’s not bad. It tastes familiar but I can’t think of what it reminds me of right now. >

Flavors: Spices, Vanilla


To me it tastes like vanilla icing, like the thinner home made kind with confectioners sugar. It’s got that distinct powdered sugar taste. And also vaguely eggy. And for me it resteeped almost the same as the first steep.


I wish it tasted more like icing to me xD


Sweetener dear sweetener xD

I had the chance to drink only one sip of this before running off to do other things, and by the time I came back to my cup it was cold. BUT, that one sip was very very enjoyable: a very light tea, with a delicate flavour, which is the qualities I look for in actual cake. Good news: none of that odd flavouring that seems to be in every single cake flavoured tea I’ve tried.. The second best cake tea I have had. Because number one is Butiki’s Red Queen Cupcake :)
