I am still not getting “cookie dough” in this tea. I find this tea more nutty than what I expect from cookie dough.
I still enjoy this tea, it is just not what I was hoping it would taste like.

Mmm, this was creamy, and warming to the bone. It was a tad sweet and vegetal. In other words, delicious!

I am a sucker for any chocolate tea. This one was very sweet with the added sugar in it. But I didn’t really mind because I needed a treat. The pecans with the coconut and chocolate make an interesting combination. I might even restock this one, I will have to see.

I had this quite awhile ago, so now I kinda forget how it tasted, but it was fairly delicious if I remember correctly. The peach was maybe a tiny bit artificial, but it was a good iced tea.

I made this tea according to the directions on the package and it was fabulous for work. It was so convenient. It did not need to be sweetened at all, but wasn’t sickly sweet. I got a lot of orange flavour in mine.

I am not sure what happened, but this tea was incredibly bitter last week. I must have overleafed or had less water than I thought. What the heck?

Butiki Teas

Any chance you used boiling water? I’ve noticed that a number of people had instinctively used boiling water since the leaves are so black or sometime forget that it was an oolong and used boiling water.

Also, maybe could be a bitter piece of pecan.

Probably, I was half asleep when I made this tea! I will pay more attention next time!

With a tad bit of brown crystal sugar, the pineapple notes really come to the forefront in this beautiful white tea. the cilantro is just playing quietly in the background which is nice.

I didn’t even realized until I searched this tea to write a note on it that I had tasted it before. Oh well, I enjoyed it, so I don’t mind another taste!
Thanks to Angel at Teavivire for the sample!
Once again, I got nuttiness right away, and I do associate it with chestnut. I like that this straight green has a little sweetness and isn’t too vegetal. If I were to order a straight green, it would likely be this one.

Thanks to Angel at Teavivire for another round of samples!
This tea is delicious, I wasn’t sure what to expect as a red tea, but I quite enjoyed it.
I found floral, sweet, and tiny cocoa notes to be present.
I will try resteeping next time and see how it stands up to that.

I am not sure if I brewed this incorrectly, but I found it very vegetal and all I could think of was seaweed. I must have done something wrong, because some of the notes mention sweetness. I found no sweetness in this cup.
I will not rate this at present, because I will try it again later and determine a better opinion of this tea.
I probably oversteeped because these leaves are HUGE!

Bio

Hello,
I am a nurse, I love to do so many things: reading, card making, scrapbooking, photography, playing with my nieces, shopping, and of course TEA!

I only started drinking loose leaf tea in Dec. 2010 when I had a DavidsTea for the first time and have been obsessed ever since! My favourite is probably white but I have black every morning to wake me up! I enjoy most flavours out there! My favourite flavours are nutty, fruity, chocolate, jasmine, tropical.

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.
