Unexpected sipdown #73/378!

I’m pretty sad about this one. It seems my tastes are changing and I’m craving unflavoured tea more and more frequently these days, and adding milk to my black teas, flavoured or not, far less frequently. This morning I decided to start my day with a cup of this, mostly because I wanted a straight black and this was the first one I came across. I didn’t have any particularly strong feelings about it before then, but it was so smooth and delicious that as soon as I finished my first cup I went to resteep the leaves, only to find that I’d thrown them out without really thinking. So I got it back out of my cupboard, measured out the leaf and found that my baggie was empty. Sad moment. I’m going to resteep the crap out of the leaves this time.

This was a beautiful blend. Each tea adds its own element and combined this is just the smoothest, most flavourful yet delicate house blend I’ve ever tried. I’m not at all surprised because as I’ve already said – probably multiple times – Stacy had a real gift for sourcing the best single origin teas, and this is basically a showcase of the best of the best. It’s malty, deep and chocolatey rich with bready notes, and some lighter citrus and floral notes, too. There’s a beautiful honey note which threads its way through the whole thing so that it glides across your tongue and dances on your palate. I’m not the best at describing natural notes from teas and I’m definitely not doing this one justice, but it was really a masterpiece and I’m going to miss it a heck tonne. Honestly I have three of the four elements in my collection and I might try to recreate it as best I can.

Awww, I never tried this one but maybe in the end that’s a good thing because it sounds like one I’d miss a lot too.

Nattie

It’s probably for the best. You can’t miss what you never had, right?

What a wonderful blend this is! Where the breakfast blends I’ve been drinking lately are blunt force objects, this one is a positive symphony of flavors, each perfectly in tune with the other. There’s a lot going on—malt, honey, cocoa, stone fruit, that perfect hit of astringency—but it works. And I suppose it’s no wonder, given that it contains two of my favorite straight blacks: the inimitable PTA and luscious Giddapahar Darjeeling. Teas like this are the reason I still miss Butiki. If I could get my hands on more, it’d be a definite restock; as it is, I’m going to savor my last few cups on long, slow weekend mornings like this one.

Totally lost track of time today helping Mum organize/purge the house. Never got past my first steep. ACK!!! So I threw this in the fridge for a cold steep, as caffeine at this hour could slay me. I’m excited to see how it turns out :P

I don’t know what came over me this morning, but an unflavored tea seemed to be the thing to drink.
I had a combination of excitement and trepidation, as I had heard a great deal about this tea. Trepidation unfounded, as this was lovely
This was gorgeous, light and delicious. The flavors could have come across as heavy and solid and unforgiving as a block of solid tea. This has got a lightness to it, which makes the flavors glow.
I think a slice of lemon would do well. I’ll try that next!

I brewed this up this morning and was quite excited given the rave reviews this tea has been getting but tbh I was disappointed. It’s good but I find I enjoy the individual elements much more than the combination of them together. I just find them to be richer in flavor where as this is muted to me (and I know that is probably just me since so many others love this). However, my lack of love for this tea makes it that much easier to happily pass this along to another steepster who will enjoy it far more than I ever could.

Sil

it’ IS you..but that’s why tea is awesome! everyone experiences different things!!

thank you Kittenna! This is one of those tasting notes that makes me sad because I was never able to pick this up myself. And it’s good. i very much appreciate the share from Kittenna today and will be resteeping this until the flavour is dead. This is juicy and delicious and everything in between here and there and everywhere. I am a fan! I don’t get a lot of chocolate notes from this one but that’s ok by me. I can mostly smell them versus tasting them. Seriously. delicious! So sad i missed out on this one.. sniffles

adagio breeze

I’m thinking about getting the component teas from other sources and hacking the recipe for some of these breakfast blends.

Sil

yeah that might have to be something we do ugh

VariaTEA

Sil, I can share mine with you if you like. I haven’t tried it yet but I certainly have enough tea and I don’t grab straight blends often enough that I would miss it that much. I’d rather it go where it would be enjoyed than stay here in a drawer.

Sil

I’d love you for that VariaTEA but only if you don’t love it…i wouldn’t want to sneak teas from you that you enjoy :)

I’m happy to share :)

Got this tea in my last Butiki order. Hadn’t tried it till yesterday. On Steepster it says there are a LOT of flavors. Kinda diverse, and I wasn’t sure what to think. But then in tasting notes it acted like it’s a really chocolate-y, malty tea. Which made me decide to buy it in the first place. XD
So I wasn’t exactly sure what to think going into this one.
But I was actually pleasantly surprised.
It was rather fruity. I tasted raisins and plums. Pretty bready too.
Kinda malty, but not overly so. Maybe a bit chocolate-y, but nothing too noticeable.
Overall it was a delicious tea and I’m really glad I got to pick some up! (:
Another win from Butiki!

Flavors: Baked Bread, Chocolate, Fruity, Malt, Plums, Raisins, Smooth, Sweet

Ost

Kittenna

I believe it’s on my list to sample to you, Sil.

Sil

Kitenna – perfect. I was trying to find that before i bothered ost lol I thought one of you had offered… this saturdaY? haha

Ost

Heh, well if you ever wanna try anything that I have, just hit me up, Sil. I have no problem sending some to you! (:

Sil

same on my side ost…appreciate the offer!

This is such a delicious tea. I am not finding it to be overly malty or chocolatey, in fact it’s reading on my tongue as being incredibly, wonderfully JUICY. Like an explosion of slightly fruity, slightly malty tea with definite honey notes.

Truly, it doesn’t even matter to me, because ultimately when it comes down to it, it’s just so full of flavor and juiciness – such a smooth mouthfeel.

I’m on steep 2 for this morning.
I’m not even missing my daily AM coffee that I’ve been having regularly since going back to work! (6:30am wake ups don’t agree with my delicate composition :))

Anyway, no big surprise here. Another Butiki fave that I will mourn when it’s gone.

Wow, this is really something lovely. It’s dark and rich while maintaining a lightness in body. It’s malty, but not heavy. Each sip begins with a strong and somewhat bitter cocoa flavor. There are undertones of damp leaves, wet earth, wood. It then smoothly transitions into a springy, plummy fruitiness. There’s something like raisins there. But there’s also tang. Following quickly behind are notes of honey, baked bread, and butter. The flavors are thick and coat the lining of your tongue. After, I notice those flavors receding as floral, somewhat vegetal notes take their place. These I presume come from the Giddapahar. I haven’t tried any of the teas on their own, so it’s difficult to say. A touch of bitterness rests on my tongue, along with nuttiness, and that light floral finish. I’m impressed. It’s been a while since I’ve had a tea so complex. It took a lot of concentration and discernment to be able to pull every flavor apart. I’m out of practice! I would love to have this tea in the morning. After consideration, I believe it would best be saved for slow, reflective mornings…and mornings with someone special. It’s a special tea, for special mornings.

Awesome, glad you are enjoying it! I came up with this one as a sort of cohesive chaos.

D’oh, I dumped boiling water over this tea before I thought to look at the suggested steeping parameters. I think it made the tea a little too strong (I forgot about the Darjeeling in there. oops), but it’s still pretty nice. I’m definitely getting bitter chocolate and flowers, but there’s a lot more complexity to the flavors that I’m having trouble teasing out. Hopefully next time I’ll remember to brew it right so I can do a proper note.
