After the disaster of my last tea this morning, I had to go for one that I KNOW I like.
“This one is not a sipdown, but is a welcome pot of tea to enjoy with my lunch of soup. I'm still not sure if I prefer the Malty Irish Breakfast, or the other Irish Breakfast from Butiki, but I it...” Read full tasting note
“Ooh. I like this one. This is a delicious breakfast tea. Pretty sure the best Irish Breakfast ever. And Black Lotus is the best English Breakfast. Butiki has cornered the market on my breakfast teas!” Read full tasting note
“This was another sample sent in my Butiki order. This one is similar to the Irish Breakfast from the other day, but yes, it's maltier. They're both wonderful black teas that can really wake a...” Read full tasting note
“You know one thing I love about tea? If I get too distracted to drink it right away, I can microwave it and it doesn't come out all nasty the way coffee does. I can't stand a cup of microwaved...” Read full tasting note
Our Malty Irish Breakfast combines our Dinjoye Estate Assam, our Khongea Golden Tippy Assam, and our Organic Ceylon for a strong breakfast tea. This tea is heavily malty with chocolate notes up front followed by a bergamot finish. Bread notes can also be detected. This tea is especially enjoyable piping hot. While less refined and complex than our original Irish Breakfast, this blend is stronger with a more intense malty flavor. For an even stronger brew, we recommend adding a minute to the steep time.

Terri sent me this one, and the regular irish breakfast, which is fantastic because they are both two teas i haven’t had a chance to order from Stacy. I feel like i’m slowly slidding down the side of having not tried a lot of the teas on her website, where before i had tried over 70% of them! haha I am having a seriously busy work week so i barely have time to drink tea, let alone log them but i am trying!
I had this one side by side with the Irish breakfast so i could see which i prefer. I think, my initial reaction is that i like the regular one a little better. There’s a bit of an astringent note to this one along with the maltiness that makes for less of a smooth cup of tea. It’s still a good solid cup that i will enjoy drinking, but in a straight up comparison, the other tea wins out by just a little :)
Big hangover this morning. Luckily, I have a great hangover cure. Seriously, best hangover cure ever: 1 large glass of water, 1 bagel, 2 large cups of Malty Irish Breakfast, 2 Excedrin Migraines, and an insane amounts of B vitamins. I’m already starting to feel great. Last night, I went to see Gary Numan live again. I have really been limiting my concert going as much as possible due to the plantar fasciitis that is still lingering. I have to drink enough to tolerate the amount of pain I will have standing through an entire show because I refuse to sit at a concert. For me concerts just are not as fun unless I’m in the crowd, dancing, and scream singing. The pain was so worth it though because it was such a fun concert. Gary Numan is great to scream sing to. Are Friends Electric? has to be one of the funnest songs, with all of it’s ‘oh ohs’. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yx8Wwt7zDw.
Some really great people watching at this concert since there is a real variety of people that enjoy his music. The venue has a bar to the left so, when you enter the floor area people were already segregated by age. Most of the people on the right were young and the people on the left were older. The hubby and I went to the underage area since it was less packed and were able to make our way up front. It was interesting to see that the right half had so many people recording the concert on their cellphones but I didn’t see a single cellphone recording on the front left. Also, the younger section seemed more alive and dance-y, while the left section people were more just standing still. It was also interesting seeing the crowd react to older versus newer songs.
This tea is just perfect for my mood. It’s nice and malty, a little woody, little citrusy, with some chocolate notes peeking through. Just what I needed! It’s not overly complex but I wouldn’t enjoy that right now.
I’ve been drinking a lot of Butiki teas in the past few days. I have placed three orders with them so far this year, so I guess it’s good that I am drinking some of it! I love this tea! It’s so malty and full-bodied. This was a perfect tea to have after a big breakfast. I can’t wait to try what a 4-minute steep is like…But then I think I will give this to Casey to bring to work, because he will love this too.
