Thank you to Emilie for a sample of this!

Another Butiki tea to cross off my list :) (or add to my shopping list I suppose, Grr…Argh.)

As is the norm with the ones I’ve tried and loved, this is a creamy and subtly flavoured Butiki offering! I really tasted the nuttiness in this. I’m a big fan of pistachios anyhow, I wouldn’t have thought to put them in a tea but with the creamy green base it really works.

I will add this to my next Butiki order for sure, it’s not a ‘smack you in the face with flavour’ sort of tea, but none of Stacey’s teas are and that’s why I like them. They never seem to taste fake and they are the perfect alternative to my other super sweet dessert teas, which I don’t always want.

Brewed as per the directions for this one.

Hello!

I love tea. I love my baby daughter, my husband, my dog Wally, Netflix, shopping, and tea. Some other stuff too, but these are the most important!

Some favourites -

Butiki teas in general, I love how the flavours are subtle and not fake tasting and don’t overwhelm the tea base. Trust that I will be dramatically mourning the loss of this company!

Harney and Sons, Teavivre, Whispering Pines and Mariage Freres are some more tea companies I appreciate. Along with Davidstea as it was the ‘gateway drug’ to my tea addiction. Though I’m mostly over it now, I’ve definitely moved on from the artificially flavoured teas and am trying more quality straight teas!

My ultimate goal is to try as many French teas as possible – and to finally find a source in Canada for Mariage Freres so I can buy Wedding Imperial, and Black Orchid for sure.

I would like to try any Taiwanese Assams that exist in the world!

Also continuously on the hunt for Fauchon – La Naissance.

When I rate, it goes like this:

85 -100 = WIN! awesome, I love this and keep it on hand
70 – 85 = pretty darn good but I don’t NEED to own it
55 – 70 = not necessarily terrible but not a tea for me!
30 – 55 = missed the mark as far as I am concerned. Wouldn’t drink it willingly.
0 – 30 = I likely won’t rate this low very often, so if you see it, consider the tea a great big FAIL and probably disgusting.
