OMG, I need to wait for my tea to cool before I eagerly start chugging it! I’m getting a pretty nice light butterscotch flavor in this. Very well balanced and good without sugar BUT, I’m going to try a little sugar anyways to see what it does! Tastes kinda the same with a sweetness on the end. I think I prefer this without sugar. I’m really enjoying this, but I don’t think it is a stock up and hoard choice for me since there are other butterscotch teas out there that I also enjoy. (the bar for stock up and hoard is pretty freakin high at this point btw) :)

what other butterscotch teas would you recommend?

Dustin

Tealux and Art of Tea both have ones that may be the same tea. I think there is another brand that has it as well. It has got to be a tea that multiple companies are buying from a bigger distributor, unlike Butiki who flavors teas themselves and comes up with custom blends.

Kittenna

I know which tea you’re talking about, Dustin, and I’ve had it from at least two vendors (Tealux and someone else). It’s pretty yum.

Dustin

It’s kinda cool when you can find a tea that you like sold by multiple companies, but it is also kind of a bummer that they are buying from the same source and acting like it’s their creation. I guess I have mixed feelings on it!

Kittenna

I mostly find it irritating, although it’s sometimes helpful when you realize something is available locally and not just via expensive international shipping! It really ticks me off when things are marketed as their own blends, though. I don’t like lies.

Dustin

Yeah, the lying part gets me too. I find that as I get older I have less and less tolerance for BS.

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan, but have had a growing appreciation for plain. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! And no hibiscus. Hibiscus is the devil.
