This was a good cold brew but it was a little too artificially sweet. But, I really enjoy coconut, so this is definitely something that I would drink.

This is a sad sipdown because this is my last cuppa of Butiki Teas. Their tea was exceptional. I will miss their naturally flavoured tea, and the straight ones too.
This was a fabulous tea—-hot or cold brewed.

Aww, this was truly amazing.

Thank you for the sample Teavivre!
This tea is certainly fragrant! It smells delicious, like sweet potatoes and brown sugar with a hint of cocoa.
The taste translates fairly well into the taste, but maybe a little milder than I expected. The cocoa notes aren’t as strong as I would have liked based on the taste but it is a lovely cuppa. The sweet potatoe/molasses notes last throughout the resteep as well.
I used the whole packet which was about 2T

I finished this off as a cold brew and it was delicious! Sweet with slight nutty and mocha notes.

I miss this tea. It was so lovely.

Super Starling!

I’m so depressed that Butiki Teas doesn’t exist any more. Every time I read a review, I get excited about trying them, then remember the horrible truth.

Ya, Butiki was so good!! There is other good tea out there in the tea world though!!

I really enjoyed this tea but it did get astringent if brewed too long.
It is sweet but still robust enough for the morning.

This makes a delicious cold brew, and convenient with those tea bags. Great for the summer!

Straight greens are my least favourite tea but this one was enjoyable.

I took a sample of this out of the GCTTB5 box 2 because I knew that I wanted to try it but didn’t want to hold the box up, so thanks for the sample Bitterleaf!

I combined the first 3 steeps gongfu style because I didn’t have time for a full gongfu session. I found the first 3 steeps sweet with honey and hay notes. I also found some peppery cinnamon notes hidden in there.

I also combined the next three steeps and found it to be sweeter with less peppery notes. Delicious. It would be interesting to see how it changes with age as the description states, but I only took enough for 1 sample.

Sipdown for now. This is on my permanent restock list so it won’t be out of my cupboard for long. I love this tea.

Sipdown of my sample

This is fairly good cold brewed. It tasted more pineapple than peach this time though. I think I still prefer the blueberry one over this from Teavivre.

Bio

Hello,
I am a nurse. I have numerous hobbies: reading, crocheting, crafting, card making, scrapbooking, photography, shopping, and of course drinking TEA!

I started drinking loose leaf tea in Dec. 2010 when I went into a DavidsTea for the first time and have been hooked ever since! My favourite is probably white tea, but I also love black and oolong. I also like a nice relaxing rooibos or herbal in the evening. On Sundays, I like to treat myself and make a tea latte.

My favourite flavours are nutty, vanilla, chocolate, jasmine, tropical, fruity, earl grey.
My dislikes are lavender, rose, hibiscus, banana, and straight green or overly vegetal teas.

I am admittedly fairly generous in my rating scale. Most of my teas I rate at 90 and above, and would re-stock these teas.
Anything under 90 I probably wouldn’t re-stock unless I found a great price.
