Missy & Dylan sent along a sample of this one so I could compare it to DavidsTea’s Buttered Rum, which I got around to doing last night. Thanks guys!

The aroma is malty and rummy, with a hint of butteriness mixed in. The flavour is very much a malty tea, but I can definitely taste the alcohol flavour with a hint of sweetness. There’s clearly less flavour than in Buttered Rum – after drinking it, this one just tastes like a malty tea. The base tea here is far superior though. Although I can drink this easily without adding milk and sugar, I suspect they’d amp it up a little. Also, it reminds me of 52teas Pot O’ Gold from earlier in the night… similar base tea, maybe?

Second infusion (96C/5min): Not a lot of flavour; it is now mostly just a weak, malty black tea with a bit of rummy sweetness.

Missy and Dylan THANK YOU! This tea was SO SO enjoyable last night! I had some both hot and cold – both excellent! This may make it to my perm stash even! Its not like the most complex tea in the world but the flavor is spot on, its not scummy with oils floating on top, its quite natural in its flavors. No astringency, no bitterness, smooth, and soothing. Thanks also for being quite generous with the sample! This should get me by until I can place an order with market spice, which will be my first time with them.


Woot! Glad you enjoyed it. We like it rather well too.


Yes and thank you SO MUCH! :)


You are quite welcome! :D


Sounds delicious! Any comparison to DavidsTea’s Buttered Rum? Have either of you tried it?


i don’t think I have tired that Krystaleyn … did you ever send me any? The ONLY Davids teas I have ever had are ones you have sent lol


@ Krystaleyn we have not tried the DavidTea’s version. I would like to offer a sample of the one we have. Ima go eat dinner and you can PM me if you are interested in a trade. :D


Or even if you just want a sample ;)


@Azzrian – Nope, I haven’t sent you any. I actually only had some from the DavidsTea advent calender and haven’t picked up more, though it’s been on the list for a while.

@Missy – totally interested :D In both a sample and a swap. I have a cupboardful of DavidsTeas to offer if anything strikes your fancy! I’ll try to remember to PM you once I get through the remaining 254 notices on my dashboard O.o


Good lord that’s a lot of notices!

This is sort of a bread and butter tea, it’s nice and cheap, it’s comforting, and the sweet rum flavor on the tea itself is very calming. It’s a great kick-back-after-a-long-day tea.

We brewed this up today to compare it to the Pot O Gold from 52teas. It falls a little flat in the flavor comparison. It’s still good, and it’s still probably going to be a permanent collection tea, because of the price. It is an awful lot of enjoyment for $0.94/oz.

This is a particularly cozy tea for me. Great for days when you’ve been out in the cold all day. The base tea still shines through the rum flavor.
I’d keep it around just to try on people who are new to tea. The taste isn’t too complex. It’s a great tea to relax with.
Forever more this is pirate tea. It reminds me of one of my favorite movies, Pirates of the Caribbean.

K S, you can have the last laugh. I set my neck on fire while using an ear candle. Little scorched hair and a sore patch under my ear. (Chuckle not, lest ye be chuckled at.)

While I am swallowing my pride and dignity, I’m also swallowing a small cup of a new discovery at my current favorite local by-the-ounce place. $1.39. Who could resist?

The last time I had a butter rum tea (Stash, maybe?) the rummy part was too strong for me to enjoy it much. This is much, much milder; getting plenty of butterscotch-iness and not much rum. With that said, though, I’m thinking this will be a good base for milk and sugar or maybe some maple syrup. At this price, I can afford to experiment a little.

P.S. Our smoke detector works just fine.


OH dear, oh dear! If your ear is hurting, perhaps direct the warm air of a blow dryer gently in! I will try not to giggle, as I once got a hot curling brush stuck in my hair and had to lie on the sofa and await rescue from hubby, who had to dismantle the brush. My bestie went out and bought me a curling iron that day, and I use it still.

Oh, my gosh! Ouch! The tea and the price sound good. Your poor neck, though… Hugs!


Ouch! Though if its like my house you probably confused everyone. The fire alarm sounds and we all head to the table like Pavlov dogs. For the record, I did say an honestly concerned ouch before I chuckled.


More soot than scorch. :) First candle mishap in 20+ years…I still swear by them.

This smelled WONDERFUL! Really rich, warm, and buttery – and rum fragrance too. Just an absolutely gorgeous aroma. Good strong tea (I add creamer to my black teas), be sure not to overstep. Good especially with vanilla or sweet cream creamers, brings out the subtleties of the brewed tea.
