As soon as I received a sample of this tea, I knew I was in the presence of tea royalty. It looked beautiful and inviting, just sitting there in its little plastic bag, waiting to be scooped into my infuser.

I wasn’t disappointed when I brewed it. The light, pleasant scent of cantaloupe filled my nostrils, and when I took my first sip, I was in heaven!

I don’t know how they did it, but Butiki has actually blended a tea that melts in your mouth! I added nothing to this tea, but its mouthfeel had a heavy, creamy quality to it. And it tasted just like cantaloupe. I couldn’t taste the base tea at all.

I was legitimately sad to finish this cup. Good on you, Butiki!

Hello! I love literature, politics, and tea. I work in the Information Technology field and am currently working toward an MA in English.

Favorites: Black, oolong, and rooibos. Blends that are vanilla, chocolate, nutty, or dessert-like are especially appealing to me. I also love ginger, citrus, and lemongrass.

I like green teas as long as they are blended with fruit and/ or spices, and I LOVE them when they’re floral.

I have a love-hate relationship with kombucha, and I’m very picky about my chai- It has to have a high-quality black tea base and be heavy on the cinnamon and light on the nutmeg. Also iffy about mate and herbal teas in general, although chamomile and I are usually on speaking terms.

Dislikes: White tea, unflavored green teas, honeybush, fruity herbals, hibiscus in high quantities, plain peppermint. (Although I am not opposed to trying blends that cross into these neighborhoods if they come from reputable companies.)

I’m not a swapper, but I hope we can still be friends :)

90-100: Perfection and heaven and magic, all in one cup.

70-89: Good.

50-69: Meh.
