From Butiki Teas

It’s a tea that Stacy is working on!

Our Caramel Apple pairs our Gui Fei Oolong with caramel and apple flavors. Sweet caramel and roasted nut notes are immediately noticed. Apple and honey notes appear and remain throughout the sip. The Gui Fei is rather present and compliments the caramel and apple flavors, creating a flavor that resembles a baked apple with a caramel coating and topped with roasted nuts.

Ingredients: Gui Fei Oolong, Organic Dried Fuji Red Apple Pieces, Safflower, Organic Natural Flavors (vegan)

Recommended Brew Time: 3 minutes
Recommended Amount: 1 1/2 level teaspoons of tea for 8oz of water
Recommended Temperature: 180 F

So “sweat” is a flavored listed on this tea and thank goodness I am not tasting that. I am actually not too put off by the oolong in this blend despite its strong, floral presence. It is nicely complimented by the fresh, sweet red apple flavoring and the smooth caramel candy-like flavor. At times, I get just a hint of caramel that reminds me of the Butterscotch and Hazelnut Mocha Candies flavoring but it is fleeting and I find myself wanting more. Still, the caramel and apple both make an appearance in the cup and that makes for an enjoyable drink. Thank you Inkling for sending some my way :)

Hopefully they meant “sweet”… :P

Inkling

Glad you’re enjoying it; I like that one too!

VariaTEA

Cameron, I hope so too and Inkling, thank you so much for parting with some of your precious Butiki teas for me to try :)

I don’t always favor oolongs, although I have been trying more out lately, but this one is quite nice! The leaves didn’t open up fully on the first steep and that makes me wonder what flavor it’s hiding for future steeps. It is fruity. I get the pear/apple flavors which are rounded out nicely with a little sugar. The caramel sits in the background as supporting cast. I tried adding a touch of salt, because salty caramel is delicious, but I don’t think it does this tea any favors and makes it a little soapy in the start of each sip. Really great tea before the salt! :D

While the overall flavor of this tea is really good, I get a little more of the base tea flavor than I’d like to have going off of the name. I saw someone else mentioned that this shared some similarities to pear instead of apple, and I feel that is pretty accurate. It has that green flavor but not the sourness of green apple. Also, I am left searching for the caramel. I’m glad I got to try this one, thanks to Inkling. Now I won’t be forever wondering if I would have been happier having bought some of this before Stacy goes out of business. More money to buy new blends!!

I’m not going to rate this because I think my rating would be based too much on it not living up to my expectations of the name.

This one was good, but it didn’t blow me away. It has a nice smooth, silky oolong base and a very sweet, natural apple flavor, but the caramel wasn’t really coming through for me. Maybe it would be better sweetened? I rarely sweeten my tea, but perhaps I’ll have to try that next time.

Aroma: Sweet, candy, apple, floral
Liquor Color: Pale yellow
Liquor Flavor Sweet, crisp apple, light nutty flavor
Notes: I couldn’t wait to try this tea when it came in and it didn’t disappoint. Apple is very crisp and refreshing and the oolong base works really well with the flavors.

This tea is good, really good. Too bad there soon will be no more of it. The amount I bought should last me a year or so. The caramel taste is up front with the taste of apples behind it. There is no bitterness or astringency to this tea, it has the perfect base. This is really sweet tasting. I added sugar which really seems to accentuate the sweet flavors of this tea.

I brewed this once in an 18oz teapot with 3 tsp leaf and 175 degree water for 3 min. The resulting brew was light colored, sweet smelling, and delicious.

Flavors: Apple, Caramel, Sweet

This was my other sample from Butiki Teas, and wow… The aroma of this one is intoxicating! Very much a buttery caramel scent, like stepping into a confectionary store just after they’ve dipped the apples in the caramel. The flavor is lovely as well. I can taste caramel as I sip, but I can also taste the apple, which is very crisp and sweet. Like it says on the Butiki Teas website, this tea has a roasted note to it, which makes the overall flavor like a baked apple—and also makes it a great blend for fall, really cozy and warm. The oolong base of this tea matches the other flavors perfectly: smooth and creamy with hints of honey and flowers, but just enough roast to stand up to the caramel apple notes. So good! Now I just wish I had ordered more.

Sipdown (119)!

The super awesome Courtney recently sent me/sold me a few different teas, including a one cup sample of this one which was awesome because I’ve been dying to try it and this is the perfect way to sample it without committing to a large amount!

Since I had a cleaning shift on Monday, I started work really late – so I had time in the early afternoon to sit down and sort of properly enjoy some new teas; including this one. I wish I’d’ve paid more attention to the dry smell; usually Butiki teas have really captivating dry smells.

Steeped, this was mind altering like expected though; the caramel was the thing I noticed first: it was very smooth and rich with lots of buttery notes to it. Then that was immediately preceded by an almost “dewy” sort of apple and ripe pear hybrid fruit flavour combination. The apple came off as very distinctly “Fuji Apples” to me as well, and I was delighted when I looked the ingredients up and saw that I was correct in identifying the apple type. Go tastebuds! There were also honey notes and just a teeny pinch of floral notes way deep down under the caramel/apple. I haven’t tried the base oolong on its own, but I think I’d be interested to.

One thing to note; I really struggled to get any sort of roasted nut flavour from this. I mean, there were moment when I was envisioning a “baked” caramel apple type dessert more clearly, but nothing “nutty”. Still, a very very awesome tea and one I’m sure will probably find its way into future orders.

I like it!! No rating today because I seem to have burst a capillary on my gums and yeah that doesn’t mix well with oolong… (sorry for the TMI)
Anyhow, from what I can tell this is a pretty awesome tea Caramel Apple Oolong.
Hot, it seriously tastes like a baked good. All gooey and sweet. Cold, I get more caramel and apple with a definite oolong undertone. I don’t think I’ve tried the base on it’s own so I can’t say for sure how the variety affects the flavour, sadly.
I can’t wait to try this again soon.

Fjellrev

Oh geez, I hope that’ll heal up really soon! I have never experienced anything like that before.

Indigobloom

Fjellrev – it isn’t so bad. I brushed my teeth too hard I think and all the mildish food I ate tasted a bit metallic. It’s almost better today!

Fjellrev

Ouch! Well glad to hear it’s almost better.

Indigobloom

Thanks :)
It doesn’t hurt so much as it gives me the creeps haha

Oh, this is so yummy! I love caramel apples especially during this time of the year and this tea really captures one in a cup! There is a really nice balance between the caramel flavor, apple and the oolong. Everything tastes so fresh, too.

I love that the oolong adds to the buttery caramel flavor, but it also gives off the slightest floral note. The caramel is not at all artificial tasting and remains sweet, rich and creamy. As for the apple.. it really shines towards the end with just a hint of tart skin. The caramel, apple and oolong seem made for each other and they just work so well in this blend. What is most impressive is the flavor isn’t covered up by the oolong. You really do taste all of the elements of this blend with each sip.

I think this is definitely going to be on my repurchase list. I have a feeling that it would become one of those teas that I would need to be in the mood for, but it certainly is satisfying.

Stephanie

It’s perfect, this tea!
