I’m bumping this rating way up as I’ve had it a few times lately and realized I’m in love.

That’s why my reviews have been sparse, I’ve been drinking things I already reviewed, no sense adding something unless there’s something to add!

….so there’s something to add. This is really good. I might even like it more than the Maple Pecan Oolong and mayyyybe more than the Creamy Eggnog but saying that is almost blasphemous for me.

It’s buttery and nutty and creamy and sweet but not fake and not sickening and just delicious.

I found Butiki’s teas a bit too subtle when I first began this journey but I’ve come full circle because they’re really the perfect balance between good quality tea leaves that you can actually taste (therefore they actually contribute to the overall deliciousness of the tea), and subtle, complimentary flavoring that never feels synthetic or out of place.

Team Butiki all the way… Stacy is the (wo) man!!

(on an unrelated note, while writing numerous reviews on my iPhone on my breaks at work I have somehow managed to accidentally unfollow a few people, one misguided tap on the screen is all it takes, apparently. Come on with the mobile version, Steepster! You’re killin me! Sorry guys. It was not intentional. But you probably didn’t even notice :))

Bio

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.
