From Butiki Teas

Our Rhubarb Vanilla Ale pairs rhubarb, vanilla, and hops with our earthy and malty Congou Keemun. With each sip, the sweet and slightly tangy rhubarb and the spiciness of the Willamette hops grows and lingers. There is a gentle warm vanilla undertone and an almost sparking quality to this tea. We recommend letting the tea cool to reveal the flavors or adding a little bit of sugar. Adding sugar will enhance both the rhubarb and the vanilla while rounding out the hops; however, if too much sugar is added it will diminish the hops flavor.

Ingredients: Congou Keemun, Willamette Hops, Safflower, Organic Pure Ground Vanilla Beans (no fillers), Organic Natural Flavoring (vegan)

Recommended Brew Time: 4 minutes
Recommended Amount: 1 tablespoon of tea for 8oz of water
Recommended Temperature: 212 F (boiling)

I like this. It’s nice. But I don’t necessarily feel like writing a ton about it. I’ve never found anything remotely similar to rhubarb in any of the supposed rhubarb teas I’ve had before this one. I am pleasantly surprised to find it here. I like the tang with the vanilla. There’s a strange flavour in there though, it comes and goes in an instant…Is it the hops? I’ve never had it so I really don’t know. I added sugar and I enjoyed it less.

I tried this as a tea soda today. 1 tablespoon leaf + 3 oz boiling water for 4 minutes + 8 oz of cold seltzer. Unsurprisingly, the carbonation really brought out the hops flavor. This ended up tasting a lot like watered-down fruity beer with a sweet vanilla aftertaste. Not bad.


heh nice

My first cold steep ever! Hooray for it not going horribly wrong!

I put what I had left from the sample MissB sent me into a mason jar with some cold filtered water before I went to bed last night. I didn’t get to check on it or drink it until after work so it had been steeping for a good 20 hours or so at that point.

It tastes nice, I might have put too much water in the jar for the amount of tea, because it’s a bit lighter than I expected as far as taste goes, but it definitely got even smoother than it was hot. The taste is similar, though the vanilla isn’t as pronounced for sure. I’m pretty happy with how my first cold steep went!

Stacy sent me this as a sample, and since I’m about ready to place an order I knew I needed to try this so I could decide if I wanted to add it.

I love the way the dry leaves smell. I love the way it looks. This tea was really malty, which I love in my beer, but I don’t like as much in my tea. Weird, I know. This did remind me of a fruity porter. I liked the vanilla. I liked the rhubarb. I liked the hops a lot. I liked this tea better than the Peach HoppiTea myself, but my husband felt the opposite about it. And since he’s the one I’d get hop tea for, I have to go with his choice.

Anyway, this was a good tea to try, and I would drink it again if I were offered it, but I don’t think I’ll be stocking it regularly.

OMG, I don’t know what I did to disgrace this tea so badly! I’m sure it isn’t normally unbearably bitter. Did I over leaf? Over steep? Call it names? Cream and sugar help a little bit, but I’m sure this isn’t how it is supposed to taste. Maybe we will cross paths again someday and can start fresh!

Thank you to Greenteafairy for this sample!

Oh no, sounds dreadful. Sorry to hear it turned out so bitter.


I’m so sorry! I found it a little bitter, but nothing like that. I wonder if it hasn’t aged well—it had been sitting around for possibly a bit too long before I sent it to you.


I think I over leafed. When I tossed the steeped leaves it looked like more than normal for a cup. I eyed what was in the bag and dumped it in my steeping basket and I think there were more leaves hiding under the other ingredients than I thought.

Man, I wished I ordered a package of this instead of just requesting a sample! Very delicious! I’m an intrigued by the hops teas at Butiki, but I wasn’t sure if I’d enjoy them since I don’t like alcohol, but I do love rhubarb teas. BTW, I added a bit of german rock sugar while steeping.

Rhubarb Vanilla Ale is smooth, cooked sweet rhubarb flavor, bit of an interesting spice dancing in the background that I’m not to familiar with, the hops? Very fun tea, I shall get more next time I do an order!

Awkward Soul-This beer tea has a mild hops, which comes off as spicy but not aggressive. Sugar will decrease the flavor of hops but this blend is perfect with just a touch of sugar. Our Peach HoppiTea uses a much more aggressive hops which has a strong grapefruit flavor.
