This is a sample lovely Azzrian shared with me.
Well I am surprised because the tea description mentions a brewing time of 2 min and I have 4 minutes on the Butiki teas little bag…I did it 4 minutes so not sure what is the correct time finally.

This is not my favorite Butiki teas, for a black tea I found it a little too weak even if the delicate flavour of almond is very pleasant.The cinnamon is really a second role here.

My almond tea reference is Pleine Lune from Mariage Frères – the almond flavour is a totally different one with Almond Indulgence,a sweeter almond.

This is a nice tea but this one won’t go in my shopping list (thanks god because on 3 Butiki teas tasted I already added 2 on my shopping list !)

195 °F / 90 °C 4 min, 30 sec

First, please forgive me for my English and all the grammatical mistakes you’ll find in my posts.
As English isn’t my mother tongue it sometimes makes things more difficult to express cleverly and accurately what I feel.

I was mainly in black flavoured teas, green as well if not bitter.
I’m now drinking much straight teas because my palate is now developed enough to appreciate them .

My favourite brands are : Taiwan tea Crafts, Teavivre, Mariage Frères,Theodor,Butiki Teas,Dammann Frères, Betjeman & Barton.
My ratings are as follow :

100 to 95 : my darlings; always in my cupboard (or very often ! )

94 to 90 : Excellent tea

89 to 80 : very good tea, a pleasure to drink it

79 to 70: not bad even quite nice, why not having it sometimes, but well,it’s not so urgent !

69 to 50 : Meh, deceptive or just not for me – but has some qualities

49 to 30 : I just don’t appreciate it

Under 30 : is this thing supposed to be tea ?!?!?
