This smelled very apricot-y.
Taste: this is strongly apricot, but also very earthy from the guayusa. It is fairly sweet. The earthiness is fairly strong, but it is a nice flavour.
I am certainly feeling energized after drinking it!

This smelled very apricot-y.
So excited for this tea!! After so many raving reviews, I was concerned that it would let me down. I was curious about the creamy notes everyone was talking about. So here we go!
Colour: smooth light yellow
Aroma: amazingly creamy and pure cantaloupe
Taste: Wow! This is delicious. So creamy and sweet cantaloupe. A full mouth feel. This is so silky and smooth, I felt full after I drank it like I had just had a huge bowl of fresh cantaloupe. I am not sure if I have ever had such a creamy tea. This certainly does not let me down, it deserves raving reviews!
2nd steep: 90degrees, 4minutes, less creamy and more melon, still delicious!
I put the leaves in a mug to cold brew, I will see how that goes tomorrow!
Cold brewed of course!
This was a nice light sweet mango tea. The flavour was good but I wish that it would have been a little bit stronger. I will certainly enjoy the rest of this!
This is my first Butiki order, I was so excited to receive this today in the mail that I tore into it immediately and started my kettle!
Thank you so much Stacy. I didn’t even ask for this sample, so I was surprised to find it in my package! It caught my eye right away, those chocolate chips with real raspberry chunks!
Colour: nice amber brown
Taste: creamy light dark chocolate with light raspberry. So delicious. This tastes really “natural” if that makes sense.
I can tell right now that I am really going to like Butiki teas!
This time, I diluted this tea with a little bit of silver needles and it was better. It was a little too strong un-diluted.
This is ok, but I wouldn’t re-stock.
I am anxiously waiting for my next Teavivre samples, so I decided to drink my favourite of their teas today, this is still my free sample I recieved in march.
I am upping the rating to 100 because I love this tea so much! So smooth, sweet, not overly perfumey. And just what I needed on this dreary rainy day.
So soothing and relaxing…..going for a resteep now!……….sigh
Edit- I cold brewed the 3rd steeping of this tea for about 8 hours. This infusion was sweet and delicious with lots of jasmine still present. I am very happy about this!
Pretty standard mint taste, probably similar to bagged blends.
Kinda bland and not as strong or sweet as other peppermints.
Like other Bulk Barn teas, this is very cheap, so it is definitely worth the price. And probably cheaper than bagged varieties.
Cold brewed as usual. This was pretty underwhelming. It tastes like pear but I am mostly getting an astringent grassy taste. Too bad, because I find pears very refreshing for the summer.
As much as I don’t like to, I might have to add sweetener to this.
I am not sure why I am just reviewing this now, but anyway, here goes. I can’t really say anything about this tea that others have not said already. It is a cross between Kanpe and Forever Nuts. Nutty, with a little hint of fruity and tartness.
I find that it tastes a little artificial though.
WOW 200th tasting note!!
Cold brewed as usual.
I am definitely getting the bubblegum note that others mentioned here.
As far as fruit goes, I am mostly tasting the pineapple, passion fruit and pear. It is fairly sweet.
I like this but it certainly won’t be a favourite.
I love nutty teas, so I was looking forward to this one. It is yummy, slightly sweet, I certainly get a strong brazil nut flavour with a little bit of coconut. There is a little bit of bitterness, but I still think this is a great tea!
I cut up the brazil nuts into smaller pieces to distribute them better throughout the tea evenly.
This was the bagged version. As far as bagged tea goes, this is a good choice. It is smooth and not bitter. Good with just a tiny dash of milk. I took this to my Mom’s for convenience’s sake since I had limited time and supplies.
This was really yummy.
First, you get a yummy sweet note and then at the end of the sip, you get a little bit of the salty to balance it out. I am not a fan of salty things but this is actually really well balanced. I only got 20grams in case I didn’t like this, but 20grams certainly won’t last too long.
This will be a welcome addition to my collection filled with sweet teas!
Wowza! This was great to wake up to, the aroma is very blueberry, fresh and sweet. This tastes just as good as it smells. I love blueberries so I really liked this tea. Sweet, fresh blueberries!
I didn’t find the stevia bitter at all. I am actually liking stevia more and more. I didn’t find that it was too sweet.
I had this hot, but I am sure it would be wonderful cold brewed. I will try that next week!
This tea kind of surprised me. It is better than I thought it would be. The flavours actually meld pretty well together and the licorice isn’t too strong. The lemongrass makes it taste “fresh” and the pepper gives it a little bit of a kick.
It is also good cold brewed.
I cold brewed this.
I get a little bit of the pomegranate taste but it is a little bit lacking for me. I had to add stevia to perk it up enough. It was ok, but I will not be stocking up on this one.
DAVIDsTEA pom power is way better in my opinion.
I made this iced. I am not sure what goji berries taste like, but this is an alright tea.
I am liking the berry taste but I find it a little bland. I think this would need sweetener to perk it up. I don’t like additions in my tea, but maybe I will try some stevia next time.
I really like the look of this tea, the cute little marshmallows and everything looks so neat together, the black, oolong, and white.
This tastes really good. I mostly get the graham cracker like others have mentioned. After that, I get lighter notes of the marshmallow and chocolate.
At first I was really disappointed with the chocolate, I was hoping it would be more chocolatey. But by the end of the cup, I was really enjoying it!
Glad I got this tea.
This was pretty good. Smelled delicious in the bag.
Tastes nice and light, mostly of light strawberry flavour. It is a little bit earthy from the rooibos but not overwhelmingly so. I am getting a little hint of the cream. I think a splash of milk will bring out the cream and sweetness a little more.
This was ok. I cold brewed this.
There is good strawberry flavour, but kind of lacking in the kiwi department. It is also a little bit tart. I don’t like to add sugar to teas. But, I guess I could try some stevia next time I make it.
Hot, this tastes less like a pina colada than cold brewed.
I mostly get pineapple, with hints of apple and coconut. It is fairly sweet. Something that I probably wouldn’t drink everyday, but nice for a sweet dessert!
I used the last of this to cold brew it. This is so refreshing. Smells and tastes like smooth creamy lime. Absolutely no hint of bitterness, and I did not add any sweetener. Next time I cold brew it though, I would use a little warmer water to make sure all those yogurt granule things melt fully. It sits overnight anyway, so it would be cold by morning either way!
I diluted this with a little bit of Teavivre’s White Peony so it wasn’t so strong. This was MUCH better! The lavender was way too strong before. It is still very floral but not quite so overpowering.
I am not increasing the rating but it is more bearable to drink.
I might try putting this in my bath water. Lavender is so soothing.
I was in a lemon mood tonight….and I have had this for awhile and had not tried it yet. So here goes….
Wowzers, that is lemon. It tastes pretty good, sweeter than I was expecting.
I found this very refreshing and palate cleansing.
Next to try this Cold brewed, I think it would be even more refreshing cold with maybe a little mint!
