Today is Tony’s birthday! He is the most wonderful man I know, & I love him!
(Psssst…don’t tell him I told you, but he’s 62 today! )
This is another tasty & bold Assam from butiki. The texture reminds me of bee pollen melting in the mouth, it has a very rich kind of feeling. The taste is lightly sweet, a little nutty, definitely bassy, with a lingering tongue thickening sensation, and a light chocolate aftertaste. I got this as my free tea with my recent butiki order, & I’m glad I did. It’s a potent Assam, right up there with the Khongea tippy golden, though I think this one may be sweeter. I’ll have to compare them at some point.

Note to self: some teas are not good for me to drink on an empty stomach: greens, ceylons, Khongea Tippy Golden Assam, & this one. I had to eat an emergency apple, & now I feel better. I need to remember to reserve this one to drink with or after breakfast!

Final Comments: I made an awesome brekkie for Tony’s Bday, including scones. So I made another cup of this to enjoy with scones, because, at least in my opinion, scones require something bold & deep.
Perfect pairing.

Sil

nice – this one is on it’s way to me i think…

I’ve been up working for a bit now, trying to get things wrapped up before my other half decides to grace me with his presence this morning lol. I can’t decide how i feel about this one. One day there’s a bitterness to it i don;t like and then the next day it’s just bold and delicious. Seems to me that there’s an after taste here as well that i don’t love. Still on the fence on this one for now. I think i’ll likely land on this being a decent enough tea, but not one to restock as there are other straight teas from stacy i like more.

No real plans for sipdowns today, though if i can get through 4 that would be awesome. Instead i’m focusing largely on having some of my butiki teas as i tend to hoard those and hold off on drinking them a lot of the time…for no real reason lol

If I remember correctly the one and only tasting note I did for this one just said it was amazing, and that I’d add more. The time has come.

I didn’t realize this wasn’t in my cupboard, though I have only one cup left until it’s gone. It wasn’t in my Butiki order that’s en route, but perhaps the next one.

This one is sweet, and I can get the baked bread notes. And a touch of hazelnut. All very subtle of course. Butiki teas really are a work of art.

Sipdown.

Good news is that the heat is working quite nicely on the second floor of the gym today. It’s the first day of classes and I was even more pleased to find it not as crowded as usual (I guess the students finally realized that new years resolutions aren’t going to work out, lol).

I debated ordering more of this tea last time I was ordering from Butiki, but I decided to go with the new Irish Breakfast blend instead. I haven’t received it yet, but I sure hope it is a suitable replacement until my next Butiki order.

Oh, this is wonderful. And I can honestly say that I get the bread and the caramel and the unsweetened chocolate. Not a bit of astringency. This is a whole lot like a combination of a darjeeling and an assam. Yum!

Yet another Butiki sample, again from my latest order. I have always loved assam…it was one of the first varieties of tea I tried as a child, and I adore its strong, sweet maltiness to this day. This is a fabulous one. It’s sweet and malty, as expected, but it has rich, almost spicy, undertones. It’s hard to describe exactly what I’m tasting, other than to say it’s wonderfully good. And everything an assam should be.

The lingering flavour is almost roasty, very slightly drying on the tongue. I definitely need to start putting a list of repurchases together before I forget…I’ve tried a good few teas over the last few days that I really don’t want to be without for long, and this is one of them. A smooth, refined assam, verging on compex…it’s going to take a while to get to know it properly, I think, but I can see myself enjoying every sip of that journey. Simply divine.

Thank you greenteafairy for sending me this sample!

This is way too smooth to be an Assam! I did try not to over-leaf it, as I tend to do, especially with black teas. This is really good. I can smell a cherry-like sweetness. Maybe I’m just crazy, as no one else seemed to get that from this. Anyway, this was a very nice tea to have after my cold pizza breakfast. :-)

I’m glad you liked it! I’ve been enjoying this one with breakfast lately. By the way, your wonderful swap package arrived; I’m just waiting until I have time to give these teas proper attention to dig into it!

CharlotteZero

Just let me know if there’s ever anything else I can send you from my cupboard!

This is a nice rendition of what I’d consider a standard sort of Assam. It’s smooth, malty, and sweet. I’m picking up on the caramel but am not getting much in the way of chocolate. This is a good thing for me, as I’m that rare person who doesn’t like intense chocolate notes in black teas. This tea may even be a little bit too far on the side of smooth and sweet for me—I do tend to prefer a little more bite in my black teas—but it’s making for a very enjoyable cup nonetheless, and I won’t have any trouble finishing up my stash.

I’m back into this tea again today… it is such a complex warm-flavoured assam with great notes of sweet potato, malt, baking bread…mmmmmmmm… not so much raisin today, as I had to use a nasal spray for sinus allergies and I fear the meds are killing some of the delicate deliciousness…but truly, it’s just what the doctor ordered. If you’re used to Assams being IN YOUR FACE black tea, surprise yourself with this one. I doubt you’ll regret it.

While I’ve had this tea on its own, today I’m drinking a DIY breakfast blend that uses 2/3 Butiki Dinjoye Estate Assam and 1/3 Butiki Organic Ceylon. It provides a malty sweetness and is overall simply refreshing. It is close to many English Breakfast blends I’ve had. I’d recommend giving the blend a try, but also highly recommend the Assam as a standalone (the Ceylon on the other hand is just not my speed, hence the blending…)

Flavors: Malt, Sweet Potatoes

Butiki Teas

We use both of those teas in our Malty Irish Breakfast but also add the Khongea Golden Tippy Assam. I’m not a big fan of Ceylons as hot tea but if you enjoy iced tea, the Organic Ceylon is a great iced tea.

Sailor Todd

Ha, I thought it tasted like I was on to something. I’ll have to try the Irish Breakfast sometime. And that’s good to know the Ceylon makes good iced tea. I’m excited to try that. Thanks for the feedback.

Butiki Teas

I love our Malty Irish Breakfast in the morning though the previous Irish Breakfast that we did was great with a more bready feel. If you happen to have our Khongea Assam, let me know and I can message you the proportions we use and you can try making the Malty Irish Breakfast yourself. Ceylons make a great iced tea. That’s my favorite type of tea to make into iced tea but I just don’t like Ceylons that aren’t iced or used in a blend. Good luck with experimenting! :)
