From Butiki Teas

Our Pumpkin Milkshake 2.0 differs slightly from our previous version and has a fuller body, is creamier, and utilizes a more gentle base tea. This 2.0 version pairs our Doke Rolling Thunder oolong with pumpkin, vanilla, and cream flavors. Pumpkin and vanilla notes dominate our Pumpkin Milkshake 2.0; however, there is a sweet creaminess present that lingers. Some caramel notes can also be detected. We highly recommend adding some brown crystal sugar to transform this tea into a rich, creamy, decadent, vanilla and pumpkin desert treat.

Ingredients: Doke Rolling Thunder, Pumpkin Flakes (vegan), Organic Lotus Stamens, Organic Pure Ground Vanilla Beans (no fillers), Organic Natural Flavors (vegan)

Recommended Brew Time: 4 minutes
Recommended Amount: 1 1/2 teaspoons of tea for 8oz of water
Recommended Temperature: 170 F

The spices came to play tonight, and my cup turned out a little bitter. Ick. But hey, at least I only have one more cup worth left! So close to a sipdown, and then to pick something else to slowly whittle away at. Maybe Butiki’s Traditional Plum Pudding Oolong?

Yeah, that sounds like a plan!

VariaTEA

I can send you mine (Traditional Plum Pudding, not Pumpkin Milkshake). I bought it before I realized my dislike of oolongs.

Roswell Strange

That’s ok; I like TPP, but I’m trying to sip it down because I don’t love it, and I’d like the cupboard space freed up. I have other favourite Butiki Oolongs (Lychee, Flowery Pineapple, and Maple Pecan).

VariaTEA

Oh nvm. I thought you were going to grab some from Butiki to sip on. I just reread that and realized what you actually meant haha.

T(e)ARDIS

This blend sounds stellar! would love to try-following you and your expert palate :)

I was packing some of this up for Dexter3657 (I was actually shocked when I realized I was sending Dex a Butiki tea but I am always happy to share)and once I had some out, I decided to brew myself up a cup.

For some reason I always forget to double the leaf when I use my gravity steeper so I only used 1.5 tsp for 16 oz and then after pouring the water realized and had to frantically find the tea again and quickly dump in the other 1.5 tsp. Luckily, the end result is pretty tasty!

Honestly, this is probably the most accurate pumpkin flavor I have ever had in a tea. It was shocking when I realized how spot on it was (although I am not sure why given this is a Butiki blend after all). Moreover, I can taste the base and to me it is slightly vegetal and yet that only enhances the pumpkin. Although, aside from a nice smoothness, I don’t get much “milkshake” which makes me sad – not sad enough that I am not happy to drink the mug but just a little disappointed. Nothing I can’t get over though.

Why do we always drink the same teas as each other? It just kinda seems to be happening more frequently :P

VariaTEA

haha it is actually weirder now because both our stashes have grown so much that it seems less likely we would reach for the same blend at the same time. Although, I suppose we have also bought many of the same teas recently where as when we started we didn’t have much in common.

Roswell Strange

And I guess we swap very frequently too, so you have bits of what I have and vice versa. It just always cracks me up, though! Also, this may be jinxing it a little, but this is day two of no tooth pain (so far)! So yay for that!

VariaTEA

Yay for no pain!! I will keep my fingers crossed that it stays that way.

And it entertains me too. I guess great minds think alike :P

Dexter

(I keep thinking that I’ve grown up and become adult enough to appreciate Butiki – ask to try/swap for one here and there hoping that it will be the case….)

Ok, am I the only one who gets ginger in this? Does this even have ginger in it? No one else seems to be really commenting on it, only on cinnamon and clove. I get those too, the cinnamon more so than the clove, but I swear ginger is the domineering spice note in this.

I tried shaking up the bag, as Roswell tried the other day, to see if that brings out more pumpkin since the heavier pumpkin flakes might have fallen to the bottom. Like VariaTEA, unfortunately, there is no difference in the flavour. Oh wells.

I tried it with half and half this time. It’s better, mainly because it balances out the spices, but I’m still not getting any pumpkin or vanilla. To me, this is like a lighter chai.

Keep experimenting, I shall.

I survived yet another birthday yesterday, and today I’ve been busy at my first attempt of Danish rye bread. I’ve finally got it all together and it’s just setting out for a few hours before being popped in the oven.

I have both this version and the original version of Pumpkin Milkshake, and while this one is tasty, I may actually prefer the first. I might just brew them up together to verify once I’m done this cup. The flavours don’t seem quite as apparent as in this one.

Both TheTeaFairy and VariaTEA were generous enough to send me samples of this tea. Thank you ladies for your generosity.
I actually liked it better with less leaf shorter steep times – it was more neutral for me. More leaf, longer steep was too clove and something “metallic”? that I didn’t like came out of the base. However less leaf, shorter steep was way too bland for me – didn’t really taste like anything when hot, was better when it cooled but still pretty subtle for my tastes.

TheTeaFairy

Aww, so sorry I’ve misled you with my “heavy on the leaf” usual parameters. I’m gonna have to try this one and see if I get that metallic feel, you,ve got me intrigued…I’ve had the Doke Rolling Thunder by itself and didn’t get that but it’s very possible that it comes out when paired with flavouring and steeped too long, oolongs have that tendency sometimes…

Dexter

No I think it was too mild with less leaf. This is a perfect example of my issue with Butiki flavored tea. Standard leaf, standard steep times and it’s way too mild. Add some leaf and some steep time and then the flavors aren’t as intended. I still think there is something in the air here that just won’t let these work for me. I’m using bottled water for the next one, speak nicely to the tea gods, and see if that makes a difference….

So i didn’t realise it when i brewed my teas, but i brewed up this one along with the tea that makes the base. I tend to drink teas in pairs at my place and it’s a coincidence that i brewed the two together. I’m mostly just trying to try all of the new stacy teas in my house today so tomorrow can be a sipdown day haha.

this smells delicious. first sip? bitter. So i bounced back and forth tasting this one and the base to figure out what i was tasting. it’s not the base. i know i followed the steeping parameters so not sure what’s up here.

I added a bit of sweetner which really made the pumpkin taste POP so now it’s drinkable but i’m not in love. I’ll have to try this again and see what i might have done wrong and if it still doesn’t work for me, then it wasn’t meant to be!

That was kind of my first impression as well. Okay but not in love or even a solid like yet. I passed it on to my mom since I actually got both this and the pumpkin brulee for her. I’ll get it back eventually since she won’t drink it quickly. :) Then I’ll try again.

Sil

yeah i picked up pumpkin creme brulee because i DO like that one..but this one…i dunno..

Fjellrev

Oh weird. I normally don’t add sugar but I’ll be prepared to do that when I make mine.

Another sample from TheTeaFairy — thanks for sharing this!

I’ve been wondering about this one, reading all the reviews over the last couple of weeks or so it seems people were drinking and commenting.

I’m getting a slightly astringent tea, slightly bitter, that tastes of cloves. Sadly I’m not getting pumpkin or milkshake. Maybe if you added a lot of sugar and milk, but then wouldn’t they all be “milkshake?” :)

Thank you, TheTeaFairy, it is becoming obvious we love different teas. You like them strong, eh?

TheTeaFairy

Haha! Yes I do!! But don’t give up just yet, I also have a soft side :-)

Why did I think that this one was a herbal? Maybe the original one was? Huh. Well, regardless I was halfway through steeping it a bit late at night and realized my mistake too late. Luckily caffeine doesn’t affect me that much.

I was not really wowed by this. The pumpkin/squash flavor was weak and the spices (cinnamon, predictably) were more prominent. I like to taste actual pumpkin so that’s the main source of my ambivalence. But I will play around with it – and maybe add some sugar next time to see if that makes a difference.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Cloves

Nope, never an herbal. The previous version was also an oolong.

First cup of the morning that I randomly picked out of our new teas bag. I totally get swept up in the pumpkin madness in the fall, and always want to try all of the pumpkin flavored teas. The aroma is always wonderful, and then the first sip hits and about knocks me over with the spiciness. I don’t like ginger and I like cinnamon, but if it’s a pumpkin tea I want to taste the pumpkin! This Pumpkin Milkshake 2.0, my friends, is the answer! I can taste the fresh pumpkin flavor that reminds me of pure canned pumpkin. There’s a creamy vanilla note and some spices, but they are far in the background and just compliment the pumpkin rather than completely overwhelm it. This is a perfectly balanced cup and my favorite pumpkin tea by far!

It’s a dreary day outside, but so warm! I walked the dog this morning in a short sleeve shirt and have our heat turned way down. I think it’s supposed to rain all day, which is fine because I’m going to bake cookies with my mom and the 92-year old man that she cares for. He is the cutest little thing, and is so excited because I’m bringing along my little Chihuahua, who he loves. We sent out Christmas cards this year for our dog (she has her own Facebook page for animal rescue/awareness) and my mom said that he wants to frame the card because it’s from her. Haha! Hope everyone enjoys their Sunday!

-Dry blend has very large green and brown tea leaves with pieces of dried pumpkin.
-Dry leaves smell of fresh pumpkin with a hint of sweetness. Tea liquor aroma is of sweet vanilla with a touch of fruitiness.
-Tea liquor is a clear medium orange yellow color.
-Fresh pumpkin flavor with a small sweet/spicy finish. Creamy vanilla pumpkin aftertaste.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Very good tea. A creamy cup full of fresh pumpkin flavor with a hint of vanilla sweetness. No overwhelming spices.

Sipdown! Unfortunately, this sipdown occurred quite a while ago… and I can’t say that I paid much more attention to the tea than I did the first time around! However, it was definitely pumpkiny, with great spicing, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I’d like to compare it to Pumpkin Creme Brulee at some point, though I’ll plan something like that for around Halloween/Thanksgiving. Thanks again to…. Roswell Strange (I think?) for sending me some of this!
