I can’t believe I didn’t try this sooner, whether by ordering some or asking for a sample.
It’s really good. Doesn’t taste fake at all (and I’m the opposite of vegan so I’m always wary of the weird chemical and soy crap that goes into trying to duplicate something natural like meat or dairy, (though arguably neither of those is particularly natural these days) but Butiki’s teas never taste weird or fake!) and the flavoring is really delicate, not punch you in your face cloying or overwhelming.

Believe it or not, I can actually taste all the flavors, chocolate, orange and marshmallow, sure enough!! Imagine! Regretting not buying this sooner.

Reminds me a bit of Kusmi’s Euphoria, also chocolate orange, but mate rather than black tea.

I really like that one but i might like this one even more :)
It’s a flavored tea done right!

I’ve been wanting to try this too! :) Normally I don’t like tea that has chocolate in it (vegan or otherwise) but judging by Peppermint Patty, she manages to make it really good! :D I want to try both this and raspberry truffle.

whatshesaid

Raspberry Truffle wasn’t for me when I tried it, but maybe in the future that will change :)
This one though, this is a keeper for sure!!

Sil

Yeah raspberry truffle wasn’t my favourite from Stacy. I prefer two friends to three friends but i’m silly like that lol

whatshesaid

Two Friends??? Did you just make that up? Hehe

Sil

well sort of. lol i think? we landed on calling it two friends but stacy made me an awesome side creation of orange and chocolate with the assam base because i was having serious problems with three friends. I was SOOOOOO excited for three friends because i love chocoalte orange but no matter how i steep it, there’s a weird after taste that i get.

whatshesaid

Ohh ok!! Cool :) it must be good! Is it going to be available to the public?

Sil

not sure. I know kittenna, terri and i all ordered some…

Terri HarpLady

Butiki Teas

whatshesaid-It’s not going to be available online but if enough people are interested I can do a small batch of it.

Now I am so excited!!!! I put an order in for this as well as quite a few other Butiki teas (like cantaloupe and cream, maple pecan oolong, and creamy eggnog).

You won’t be disappointed!! (Well hopefully :))

Hello!

So here’s where I am now. I had jumped head first into the world of teas after Davidstea opened in my city a number of years ago. I gave up coffee and became a huge tea freak. From there I joined Steepster and started ordering teas online like a madwoman (not that anyone here would know what that’s like…)

I was swappin’ up a storm and drinking like 6-7 cups a day and I had this tremendous stash to get through…..then. I got pregnant in Spring 2013 and my baby played a funny little joke on me by turning me into someone who had zero interest in drinking or even smelling most teas. I wanted only coffee all the time which was hilarious because of course you can’t really do more than a cup a day when you’re pregnant.

Anyway. In December 2013 I had my baby girl, and now I’m on maternity leave and though I still LIVE (I cannot emphasize that enough) for my morning cup of coffee (or two…), I am trying to get myself excited about tea again, because I have TONS.

So my mission, which I choose to accept, is to first sip down all the samples I have, sent to me last year by lovely Steepsterites, pre-baby.

Here’s what I love (or I did before, and am trying to again):

Butiki teas in general because the flavours are subtle and not fake tasting and don’t overwhelm the tea base

Harney and Sons Paris is my all time favorite tea.

Mariage Freres and Kusmi are also on my awesome list.

I love creamy earl greys.

Also have an appreciation of oolong.

I have a mega stash of super flavored teas to work through, or I may try to sell them if I decide they are no longer for me. The sip downs will determine!

I love swapping!
Please note my Cupboard contains everything I have including minuscule samples of teas so it is not intended to be reflective of what I have available for swap…

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.
