I just got this in the mail today. So excited.

I haven’t tried it yet but the smell is telling me it might be the Caramel Black tea of my dreams. I have to wait until tomorrow but it’s going to be breakfast, and it’s going to be good. I can tell!!

Just, yay!!

Well, it’s as good as I thought it would be. Probably can halt the annoying hunt for my perfect caramel black tea, I think this is it!! I think I can taste the Assam base, which is nice. The flavouring seems to compliment it rather than cover it up.

It’s creamy caramel, made even creamier thanks to the vanilla. The best part is that it’s not the burnt toffee tasting sort of caramel! It’s milky and sweet but not in a fake way. I really really like this. It’s as good as it smells. I will reorder later for sure!!!

Sil

woot! it IS pretty darn delicious

I really need to order some of this! It sounds so tasty!

Terri HarpLady

Yay!! Another believer!!
I love the Assam base of the tea! It keeps it from being yet another wimpy vanilla.

Oh it’s so good. Another Butiki must-have!!

Sil – I bought some! I’ve already actually drank it a few times, just haven’t written anything yet because:
1. There isn’t a ‘Two Friends’ entry, & I’m too lazy to make one, since I’m not sure if it’s an ‘official’ tea
2. I’m lazy…I mean busy…
:D

Yay, another awesome review of this one! I’m currently in the TO airport, anxiously awaiting my arrival in Saskatoon and therefore my first taste of this tea (and others from Butiki). I mean…. anxiously awaiting seeing my family…. yes….

Sil

Kitenna..it’s lovely. :)

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.
