From Butiki Teas

Our Hattialli Golden Lion Assam originates from the Hattialli Tea Estate in the Dibrugarh District in the South Bank, Assam region of India. The name Hattialli comes from the words "Hatti Alli", which means Elephant Road. This name came about because of a nearby elephant camp. The Hattialli Tea Estate is known for golden tippy handpicked teas and the balance of briskness and mellowness of their teas. The golden tips of this tea are longer than the black leaves, which imparts a more golden appearance. This phenomenal malty second flush Assam has baked bread and oak notes. Sweet potato and dried apricot notes are also detectable with fleeting lighter floral notes. There is a fruity sweetness and light astringency present in this truly exceptional second flush Assam.

Ingredients: Indian Black Tea

Recommended Brew Time: 3 minutes 30 seconds
Recommended Amount: 2 teaspoons of tea for 8oz of water
Recommended Temperature: 212 F (boiling)

Ah, snow… it makes me want to stay in to drink tea and read Dickens novels. This one smells nice, with a mild malty scent. The flavour is a bit of dried apricot, with some notes of sweet potato bread. I also really the colour of the leaves and brew.

Very good tea for my new winter weather.

Oh my gosh, YUM! Thank you Tealizzy for the sample!

This is really nice assam. It is sweet and malty like a Yunnan black. Medium bodied, and not TOO bold. Just right! I would definitely consider ordering this one in the future. Good stuff!


Glad you enjoyed it! Yay for swaps! :)

From the Unflavored TTB

This one immediately made me think multigrain bread. It’s really nice. I didn’t get too much else from it, but I enjoyed it.

We’re headed out today to The Henry Ford to see the Women in Rock exhibit before it disappears in another week. I’m excited. I’m not sure how much time we’ll spend at the museum, though. That’s the nice thing about having a membership — we can go for just an hour and leave, and not feel like we didn’t get our money’s worth.

I’d accidentally logged this under the wrong tea yesterday, so I just copied my notes to the right tea

Ha, I didn’t even realize I’d asked for a sample of this tea back with my very first Butiki order-but there it was, floating around in my cupboard. This is only the second straight Assam I’ve tried, the other being Butiki’s PTA. It yielded a fairly light cup, very little in the way of malt, complete with the slightly raisiny notes I’ve come to associate with what I think are Assam teas. I enjoyed it more as it cooled, since it seemed to become even more flavourful. I’m glad to have had the chance to try it, but don’t think I’d seek out similar tasting teas to own—I think as far as straight blacks are concerned, I like a bit more heft, some smoke, etc. Still though, thank you Stacy for including this with my first order!


This is one I have been curious about.

It’s my birthday today! I stayed in bed longer than I should have today (I was on call all day for the winery, but I only had two appointments). Anyhow, I had a delicious leftover pizza breakfast, and decided to brew up this sample to have after. This tea is beautiful, but unfortunately it is not bold/astringent enough to cut through the pizza flavors, so I really should have saved it for another time.

Thanks, keychange! I’m getting some birthday teas in the mail tomorrow, and I am going to send you some. If there was anything in particular in my cupboard that you’d wanted to try, now’s the time to message me! :-)


Happy Birthday!

The leaf is beautiful; the flavor is richly delicious. Oaky, malty, fruity and bready – just what a good assam should be. Enjoyed a lovely cup this morning.

My Butiki order came in yesterday and this was one of my free samples (though mine is labeled golden paw, not golden lion. . .?.?). I also got a sample of a new oolong (baked anxi something. . .I forgot and I threw out the baggy already), but its not in steepster yet so I’ll review that one later.

This is a pretty good cozy cup of black tea. Not my favorite assam, but still pleasant. I seem to be out of touch with my taste descriptors today, so I can’t describe it very well. Sorry folks


Shelly_Lorraine how did you type the hands in the air face at the end of the note? That’s kinda cool.


i have all my favorite japanese emoticons saved in notes file to copy and paste. Or I could take a long time putting all the japanese characters together. . . lol

And give me back my “e” in my name :p


Glasses, where are my glasses? lol For the longest time when your name popped up I read it as Sweet Lorraine – a 70’s classic from Uriah Heep. So I should get a little pass this once… maybe?


haha. I’ve had all sorts of interesting nicknames, but I still want that “e” back, its very important to me :p My littlest sister used to think my name was “Shelley in-the-rain” because I like rainy days, so that made sense to her. My brother, he just called me “Howie” short and sweet and a dude’s name no less. lol.

Shelley-The one you had is the latest harvest and its not on our website yet.


oh, thanks Stacy! I guess that would explain the name discrepancy. :)

Butiki Teas

You’re welcome. We just go with whatever the estate is calling the tea, to make it easier. With only one exception since one estate had chosen a name that isn’t very good. :)
