From Butiki Teas

This tea was created by the winner of our Custom Blend Contest. In October of 2013, we held a contest to send in ideas for a custom blend. A panel of judges chose the 10 best ideas and we created a poll on our site. The concept for this tea won the most votes, so we worked with the winner, Mary, to create her dream blend. This tea embodies the flavor of a lemon flavored French macaron and has rich cream and sweet cake notes. Almond notes can be found weaving their way through each sip of this decadent dessert tea but give way to mild French vanilla and malty notes. Lemon is the most prominent flavor and is mellow at first but then finishes tart. The zing of the lemon and creaminess linger long after each sip. We recommend sipping this tea at cooler temperatures. Adding sugar will mellow the lemon and transform the tea into a dessert treat.

Ingredients: White Indian Tea, Almond Slivers, Amaranth, Organic Calendula, Organic Natural Flavoring (vegan)

Recommended Brew Time: 3 minutes
Recommended Amount: 2 teaspoons of tea for 8oz of water
Recommended Temperature: 180 F

I am finally, FINALLY trying it!

You should have seen me preparing it, squealing and swooning over the smell of dry leaf and then over the smell of the steep. Insanity! The taste doesn’t disappoint either, lemony notes are attacking me and I happily succumb to them. I love how it’s the lemon-pound-cake lemon rather than lemon-juice lemon that I taste. The macaron notes are fairly faint but detectable, and they must mainly result from the gorgeous almond pieces.

I think it also makes for a great summer drink, hot or iced, although I personally would feel that cold brewing this would be a waste (because of the amount of leaf one has to use for cold brewing AND because I usually have my iced teas when I don’t pay attention to what I’m drinking). It’s super-delicious and I want to have it in my cupboard forever.

It just smells soooo good. I have to admit, I’ve opened the bag and sniffed it more than once.


Haha, I know. It’s wicked. It makes me want to have some lemon cake. I should just make one.


The excitement in this post is just adorable! . So glad to see people get so giddy about tea! And the tea sounds absolutely delicious to boot!


It IS absolutely delicious! I love how tea can make me feel better on a bad day. Although this day, fortunately, is not one of those (I hope I didn’t jinx it).


I was having a cruddy day the other day. This was the tea I picked as a pick me up. It helped.

A very delicate tea! What I love here is the texture – it sips in juicy, meyer lemon sweets, and mid sip Lemon French Macaron gets creamy, silky, melted butter and fluffy, tasting of pastries. That creamy texture lingers after each sip! I also enjoy how the lemon here tastes natural, but not tart.

LFM tastes better cooled – a little sweeter, the lemon mellows more and melds with the creamy pastry flavors, so this tea is awesome for working away without worrying my cup got too cold.

This is another awesome sample from DeleriumFrogs. Thank you!

Lemon yummy! This is a very tasty lemon tea. It has the spark of lemon, but the brightness of the lemon is mellowed out a bit by the vanilla/cake-ish flavor. I enjoyed this more as it cooled a little. I even added a tad splash of milk to it too. What a delicious afternoon tea. Thank you for sharing this one with me!

i tried this one as a cold brew today and that was a good call. Liquid so clear it was nearly water like, and a very light refreshing lemon flavour, without being that intense LEMON flavour you’d get with real lemons. Over all, I’m not sure which way i prefer but this was tasty…i really should make some more for moving tomorrow…going to be hot and sweaty… ugh.

Iced 8 min or more

How long did you cold brew it for?


uh…8? hours ish..


And no bitterness? I always find I get bitterness in cold brewed white teas


No actually….

Yummy dessert tea! Lemon-y, cake-y, coconut-y! Very soothing. I keep cleaning the house which means I’m back to icing my knee. Having a productive and yummy tea filled day. :-D

I wanted to try this as a cold brew and I’m so glad I did!

It’s been in the fridge for 12+ hours and I tried it this morning, very lemony, sweet and the pastry notes even come out. It’s insanely refreshing and tasty, doesn’t need sugar at all due to the natural sweetness of the white tea. I might be drinking this cold from now on. Yum yum!

Iced 8 min or more 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML



sounds really good. I need to try it that way.


Cheri, yes you do! :)


I’ll try to do it this weekend.

Delicious sample done and dusted!

As delicious as this is, I am ok with just having a sample of it. For now. I guess.

No, it’s great. Very lemon! I cheated and even early on added around a half a tsp of sugar for 8oz of tea and it was just enough to bring out those sweeter notes strongly enough against the zingy lemon.

Could have been a hint more almond. Which is ridiculous for someone who generally dislikes almond taste to say! But I was looking for that real macaron flavour, and as a macaron nut I didn’t quite find it.

The dry leaf of this tea is so pretty! You have the almonds, the white tea leaves and little pops of pink here and there. After this tea has steeped, I smell a tart yet sugary sweet lemon dessert… perhaps a cookie or a cake? It’s pretty amazing how delicious this smells. I’m loving the balance between the tart lemon and sweet dessert – this one smells just perfect!

Sipping… lemon is one of the first things I taste. It’s bright, sweet and a little more mellow than I was expecting. I’m surprised because I’m not tasting any macaron, almond or desserty flavors. I suppose you could say that the lemon is desserty in itself, but I feel like there should be something more since the scent is so amazing. I really want the nice creamy, cakey, almond flavors everyone else is tasting!

I feel like I would drink this again in the future purely for the lemon flavor, but I wish that I could bring out more of the macaron notes to make it more special. Thank you so much to Stacy for including this in my most recent order!

I was super excited about this tea! I love macarons, and I wish I could eat them every day.

The lemon flavour is enjoyable and cake and vanilla tones are definitely present, but I’m not getting macaron from this. It’s missing that meringue flavour for me. There’s a very specific sugar flavour in a macaron that makes or breaks it. I tried adding sugar to the tea, hoping it would make a world of difference like it sometimes does, but it didn’t happen.

It’s a very well executed tea though, and I would highly recommend it. Maybe my expectations were a bit too high?

I was mostly done writing up a whole big long note on this. Mostly, nothing to do with the tea except that I love it and it makes me feel good when I drink it.

Then I somehow lost the note. Poof. Gone.

I’d be more saddened and upset by this if I weren’t still drinking this tea (second infusion and still going strong.) I am, however, drinking this tea still, so I’m just going to take another sip and enjoy it, and feel my frustrations just drift away.


Steepster acting weird for me today


I sneezed while typing and accidentally hit control or alt (not sure which) and it got me in a weird state. I hit escape to get out of it, because this is not the first time I’ve done this and that usually fixes it. This also closed my almost finished tasting note. Ah well. I’m still drinking the tea, and I’m not worrying about it.


Bless you!


giggle Thanks!
