As I’m (sadly!) working on sipping down my Butiki collection, I’ve run across a few teas that I never got around to logging. This is one of them. While not my favorite Butiki selection, I find this to be a very cozy, comforting sort of tea for the fall and winter season. The base tea is front and center with the custard flavor adding a nice creaminess and that hint of nutmeg in the aftertaste warming everything up.

Flavors: Cream, Malt, Nutmeg

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 2 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Backlog…I restrained myself and only used a teaspoon for my 12 oz mug, and stuck to a 2 minute steep time and it was light and creamy and not bitter or sour like the first time, or my times with it’s predecessor, Nutmeg Cream (version 2). You know, this makes me super happy. I got sad with the NC reblend, and I tried (or think I tried) all the suggestions and no dice. This time, the advice to ease up on leaf and steep time helped.

YAY!

Backlogged from yesterday, and I’m afraid to say, a sipdown.
How is the last cup you will ever have the most delicious? This was almost literally a nutmeg dusted custard in a cup. So creamy! So beautiful! I could cry, because now this delicate flavor is gone.
Sipdown, regrettably.

I’ve got some time this afternoon to get stuff done, which will be lovely. First thing on the itinerary is tea.
Warm and complex, this is good. It really does have a creamy mouthfeel, and the sensation that nutmeg has been lovingly dusted over the top. Impressive.

I woke up with a headache, which sucks majorly. Bleh.
But! I had some of this, and feel much better.
I really don’t know how this tea can manage to taste “dusted” but it does. It tastes exactly like a custard with a faint dusting of nutmeg across the top. I always feel like I’m missing a spoon, when I have this, like I should be eating it out of a ramekin, not drinking it out of my largest tea cup.
So creamy! So rich! So, so very impressed.

Thanks! Headaches suck. Tea always helps, though.

I swear you can feel the dusting of nutmeg on each creamy sip of this tea! Its such a funny sensation. I’m a fan.

Its been a rough day after a series of rough days.
“Have you had any tea since breakfast?” asks the boyfriend. I say no, “Well, theres your problem,” said he. “Drink a lot when you go home.”
Its good advice, so I do. And, even though I might regret it, come bed time, I pick up a black tea.
This smells so creamy in the bag. Its just like a rich custard, though I don’t detect much of the nutmeg.
Brewed, at first I thought it was lest custardy, but as my cup sits next to me, I keep getting whiffs of this decadant smelling dessert, something you’d order in a restaurant. I can taste the nutmeg more than I can smell it, its certainly a presence.
This tea is so rich, so layered! Each new sip brings a slight variation on the flavors. Its gonna be a fantastic winter tea.

I hope things will get better for you!
