The description of this tea makes one believe that he/she is in for a real treat! I love the name and the idea of a tea that reflects the indulgence that is buttercream. The dry leaf smells fruity and strange at the same time. I used quite a bit of leaf for a 12 oz. cup. 2.25 teaspoons. As it steeps, I’m getting a rather rich, sugary scent — one that is paired with fruit. Sipping… To me, it tastes like apricot with a weird aftertaste. Something grassy? Perhaps the white tea? & I really wonder how I am supposed to go about getting the buttery taste (I ALWAYS seem to miss butter notes unless they’re from an Oolong). The tea becomes VERY smooth as it cools, though.. like silk! Maybe that’s the butter? The idea of adding milk and sugar to this tea seems strange, and I don’t know if I can stomach doing so. Maybe those additions make the tea even better. If it’s written on the package, I should give it a try? I wish this tea were more BUTTERCREAM without as much fruit, but the smoothness is awfully enjoyable.

It is such a smooth and strange tea!
I’ve tried it with a little dollop of whipped cream with a sprinkle of sugar, and it made it creamy for sure, think peaches and cream but it’s mango/apricot instead of peaches… sort of. haha! Worth a try anyways, it’s quite palatable!

QueenOfTarts

I think whipped cream makes anything taste better! :) mmmm never tried it in tea, though. Do you think a splash of 1% milk (no sugar) would make this tea even more delicious? :)

DaisyChubb

I don’t see why not! I’ve had 2 percent and it was pretty creamy, and if 1% is your milk of choice I think it would do just that. Doesn’t hurt to try n_-

Incredibly creamy, tasty and really-sloppy.
For lovers of teas like: Buttered Rum and Vanilla Oolong.

The whole blend goes through a special mixture of creamy chamomile with a little hint of caramel. It’s hard to describe, you know? It never get bitter and the more it’s getting cold, the more the butterscotch taste became alive.

A great signature blend along with, Buttered Rum, White Tiger, Oolong Life, Jumpy Monkey, Pumpkin Chai and Mom’s Apple Pie.

Got my order earlier today and this was the first one I decided to try. Not sure why since I am so excited about Mom’s Apple Pie and Pumpkin Chai. But this was a really nice tea. Didn’t taste like buttercream to me but I make a really good buttercream icing with some vanilla so maybe that is what I am missing. Maybe I should add a small amount of my vanilla flavouring to it to kick up the taste.

A very light tea but quite refreshing. I may try this iced later. As of right now I don’t think that I will rebuy this one. But you never know.

Ashley Bain

aw. I was hoping this would be bursting with frostingy goodness. :(

This tea has never been a favorite, but every so often I just have to drink it, and today is one of those days. It’s light, flavorful and slightly creamy, with just a subtle hint of fruit. It’s incredibly smooth, and one of the rare DT blends (like Checkmate) that forms a cohesive flavour above and beyond the individual ingredients, rather than ‘hmm this tastes like white tea with chamomile with mango!’ The whole is better than the sum of its parts…

Nurvilya

At first sniff, I couldn’t have cared less about this tea. But now everyone seems to be getting excited about it, and I wish I had given it a shot. Now it’s too late! :(

Kay Kanada

It’s ok! It’s one of those teas that are good, but I can totally go without. You’re not missing out on anything spectacular!

Do you get cupcake cravings at 11pm~3am? I do! ALL the friggin time!
Is there a beautiful cupcake available at this hour or am i crafty enough to make one at home? NOPE. This usually results in grumpy moi and the unhappiness also gets to my boyfriend and, i believe my cat.
I have found my fix.
Buttercream!! I love you :D
I hate chamomile so i was reluctant at first, but this tea is a blessing! I drink this in the evening so i can ease into sleepy mode and BAM! add a little milk to it once i start craving cupcake! BOOM BAAM BLAM! there’s my fix. I love this tea. you could probably tell by the sound effect. Very creamy. Makes me feel like a million dolla getting my cupcake fix with 0 calories. This tea is a godsent <3

This is one of my faves, and I picked up more recently when I was downtown earlier this week. I was exchanging Dr Chocolate, and the SA who knows me/my tea likes and dislikes asked how I was on Buttercream, so I told her I had a pouch. But that I was hoarding every precious little drop of it. She said that they had some, and asked if I wanted any and I was like YES! YES! GOD YES! :P

I like white tea. I LOVE buttercream. This tea should have been the best thing on earth for me. Unfortunately though, the scent in the bag was sort of a sickly sweet fake fruity scent. I got mango from it. I figured it might improve with brewing. It did not. The weird fake fruit scent remained. The tea tasted not too bad if you could try not to smell it before you got it into your mouth, but it was something I did not enjoy drinking at all. This was not at all gourmand and foody like I thought it would be, it was more like an artificial fruit tea. It just smelled very odd and not at all like frosting, and it certainly didn’t taste like it at all.
Not sure how I’m going to get through the rest of the 25g bag that came in my sampler. Maybe I’ll try it iced since its so fruity. That might actually work.

“not too bad if you could try not to smell it before you got it into your mouth.” Hahahahahaaaahaaaaa!!!!! Classic!

Trying this one today mixed with Orange Blossom. Surprisingly the Buttercream is dominating the cup, I’m not getting any hints of the orange other than in the scent. Buttercream remains a totally mysterious tea to me. Just it, I can’t stand it. It doesn’t taste like any cream I’ve ever had, and just really isn’t something I enjoy. But blended, it changes. I’ve used an entire package up blending with various teas, and I still can’t find it blends better with than Forever Nuts. That’s where I find the cream that I was looking for, with added delicious spices. I think from here on it, that’s going to be how I drink it.

Had this as a to-go tea, nice stuff. Not sure if I’d buy more, but I was surprised at how good it was. (Normally I don’t enjoy flavoured white tea so much)

The first time I tried this (months ago) I steeped it for way too long and hated it. A 45 second steep is perfect for this one though, and seems to take away a lot of the chamomile. I really don’t like chamomile in most things so this is a plus. Now it tastes the way I imagined it would… if only it was still at Davids. I hope they bring it back for something. I’ll be sad when it’s gone from my cupboard. D:

Wow this does not smell like i expected smells super fruity…

the fruityness is toned down as it steeps, the tea is a lovely butter color.i’m starting to smell the butter…mm i’m excited to try it, gonna let it cool some though.

I need a boost this afternoon so i’m sweetening this with an agave stick.

time to taste: definitely buttery, the mange isnt overpowering neither is the chamomile, i was afraid it would take over but it hasn’t this is nice . smooth and not too strong a nice balance.

this is a winner!
