From Butiki Teas

Our Nutmeg Dusted Custard is similar to our previous Nutmeg Cream tea. This tea pairs a wonderful cream flavor with spicy nutmeg and a black tea blend that has malt, chocolate, and citrus notes. With a touch of brown crystal sugar this tea becomes decadent with a rich cream flavor and burned sugar notes.

Ingredients: Lattakoojan Assam (Indian Black Tea), Dinjoye Estate Assam (Indian Black Tea), Khongea Encore Assam (Indian Black Tea), Organic Calendula, Organic Nutmeg, Organic Natural Flavors (vegan)

Recommended Brew Time: 2 minutes
Recommended Amount: 1 level teaspoon of tea for 8oz of water
Recommended Temperature: 212 F (boiling)

How can it be Monday again already? Anyone else notice how quickly the weekends seem to disappear? The good news I guess, is the older I get, the faster the weekdays seem to fly as well… Its an unusually cool morning here in Southern California, we’re actually expecting our first winter storm of the season to hit today and tomorrow which hopefully translates into some rain here where I am. This tea seemed perfect this morning due to the cooler change but its definitely seen better days! The flavor is starting to fade and although still tasty its not quite as good as I remember it. Another one to add to the sipdown pile to enjoy before it becomes flavorless.

I still don’t know what happened to October. It went by so fast!

I woke up at 6 today since I went to bed super early last night and that dratted time change happened. I’ve been puttering around, getting things done in the apartment before I head out to the mall to run some errands. Sadly, the mall doesn’t open until 11. Yeah. It’s like half my day will be over by that point.

Anyways, I went through my teas again last night and (gasp) threw some out that were old and icky. Set some aside to send to my brother. Put a couple out to taste again before I get rid of them.

This is one I had totally forgot I had. And it’s so good. I made it and sipped on it while I set up a chicken and wild rice soup in my slow cooker. I think I have 1 or 2 cups left, and I should really go ahead and drink them. The other teas are straight blacks, so they’ll be fine for a while if I throw them into a tin to protect them a little more from the air.

I used this recipe, but with more of everything since my slow cooker is ginormous. http://pinchofyum.com/crockpot-chicken-wild-rice-soup I’ll also use tapioca or sweet rice flour to make the thickener. And I’ll get some almond or cashew milk today to make it creamy.

You early riser, you!

OMGsrsly

Going to bed at something like 8pm really does wonders for getting up early. Haha.

Fjellrev

I wish I could do that! I have to get up at 6-6:30 tomorrow and dread it. Ugh.

OMGsrsly

Hahaha. I have to be at work by 7:30 tomorrow morning, which is going to be soooo painful. But there’s an online meeting and if I do the meeting at home I don’t get in until 10 or later.

Fjellrev

That’s brutal. :/

OMGsrsly

Well, kinda yeah. But if I get a Real Job instead of a Make Your Own Hours Job, I’ll need to be at work around 8am every day anyways. So I’m going to try my best to do that every day!

Fjellrev

That’s a good habit to get into now, for sure. I need to do that since I’d also need to be at work for 8am if I get this job. Did they let you know when they were going to get back to you?

OMGsrsly

Yes. About 2 weeks as the interviewer was going on vacation. So we’ll see. :)

Fjellrev

That’s nice that they gave you a time frame. I hope you get it! But it’s kind of funny how long the hiring process takes, eh?

OMGsrsly

Government jobs are THE WORST. I’ve applied for 2 now and the wait is 3-4 months minimum. UGH.

Fjellrev

Ugh, good to know. I applied to this one in mid-September, along with some Alberta government positions, which I haven’t heard from (and assumed by now, would be a no go), but I guess you never know when you’re going to get a call.

OMGsrsly

I’ve applied for Federal stuff, and it takes FOREVER. I’d imagine Provincial gov’ts would be similar.

Fjellrev

Makes me wonder what the turnover rates are for these types of jobs. Granted, when it takes that long, I doubt anyone who is lucky enough to land one would walk away that soon. But still. Nuts.

Needed some black tea today, so I picked this one. It certainly smells a bit like custard. The flavour is sweet and creamy, with some vanilla. There is more of a nutmeg scent, I don’t really taste it much. As I have not tried the first version, I can not compare them. Perhaps I should try brewing it longer next time. Thanks to cookies for the sample.

Let me first say that I did not try the original that this was based off of. However, this was lovely! The nutmeg was very light and the custard flavor came out stronger as the cup cooled. Really nice to have at night after dinner.

I am always amazed at how some teas can truly capture the rich thickness of cream/custard. This is one of those teas. Pure custard deliciousness with just a touch of nutmeg to keep things fun. Amazing. Truly amazing. Oh Butiki, you are definitely missed.

Plunkybug

It really is a lovely tea. Agree that they are missed.

I found I really preferred this tea as it cooled. I think I liked the original Nutmeg Cream better.

AGH. I knew I should have grabbed more of this! Those of you who split this tea order… let me tell you that it’s all I can do to not totally disappear from the world with your couple ounces of this (ok ok, kidding, but seriously, it is SO good.)

Maybe my original Nutmeg Cream lost something by being in a baggie (though I did try it when I first got it, too), but this version blows it out of the water for me. And I can definitely tell that it’s the eggnog flavouring here, which actually makes it even tastier – if this is what the Creamy Eggnog blend tastes like with the nutmeg, I am also kicking myself for not ordering more of that, haha. Anyhow, perfect creamy eggnog flavouring, perfect amount of nutmeg, perfect base tea with just enough flavour and no astringency. This could actually replace eggnog for me, it is that good.

Ooooh I am excited to try this :)

Roswell Strange

@Kittenna, I didn’t order this one, but I’m excited to get the ones I didn’t order (and see you) at Christmas! It’s hard being patient to try yummy things :P

Kittenna

OMG VariaTea… I can’t even believe how good it was. I’ll have to see if cup #2 lives up to the first taste, but I don’t think it can fail.

Roswell Strange – I totally understand! Also, if you’re working Boxing Day somewhere, perhaps I can swing by with your teas just so that you can have them ASAP :D And then we can have a proper meetup after the 28th.

Yes! This has the same delicious creamy nutmeg flavor that Nutmeg Cream has! It has a little brighter or lighter of background to it (I’m comparing the two side by side at the moment), I’m guessing due to the different base. I am going to be kicking myself when this is gone for not having bought more. So if anyone who ordered it didn’t end up liking it, let me know cause I’d love to buy or trade!

We do have an extra ounce of this. Someone cancelled there order and they had purchased one ounce of this. I can save it for you if you want?

OMG YES!!!

No problem, it has your name on it (literally).
