drank White Chocolate by Butiki Teas
4559 tasting notes

I tried this tonight for the first time and honestly, it’s just not my favorite. I found it basically just tasted like tea. No white chocolate flavoring to be found anywhere. In a blind taste test, I would never have guessed what this was. At least the base was nice, if not slightly astringent. It had honey notes and a sweet, generic fruitiness along with hints of breadiness. However, with that said, I used a tea bag to brew this cup and it was quite full so I think I’ll postpone my rating until I have tried this brewed in a filter where the leaves have more space to spread out and move around.

Not my fave either.

I haven’t tried it yet either, strangely enough. Of all the Butiki teas I’ve ordered lately, the only ones I’m a little MEH about would be the chocolate flavoured ones…..I think that’s because I’ve realized that I’m not keen on chocolate flavoured anything.

I did enjoy the chocolate raspberry decaf one, but I guess seeing as how I haven’t even TRIED this yet, I’m probably not as thrilled about it.

………….So I guess maybe I should stop buying chocolate flavoured tea….

Yeah, I didn’t get much of the flavor on this one either. My guess is that white chocolate is such a mild flavor, it just can’t compete with such a strong base.

I’m glad its not just me. I still want to try it in a filter to see if I can coax out a bit more but if all else fails, I can always just drink it for the base.

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.

Tea Ratings Guide (as of December 10, 2017)
90-100 Teas I NEED on hand at all times
80-89 Teas I want to keep around for a cup every now and then
70-79 Teas I am glad I have around and can experiment with but probably don’t need more than what’s in my cupboard
60-69 Teas I would not turn down a cup of from a friend but that would probably be enough
50-59 Teas I can see why someone would enjoy but are not for me
Under 50 Teas I really did not like and most likely got dumped
