I have some major backlogging to do!
Certainly a surprise here! I didn’t expect to like this one so much since smoky teas still seem so weird to me. But, anything Butiki must be tasted!! So, I bought it and let it sit there for a couple months untouched before finally working up the courage to try it out on a cold night. The banana was totally there and, while the maple was not something I necessarily would have picked out as actually being maple, I think it did well to keep the smokiness from becoming campfireyness :) I thought this was one I was going to end up trying once and then pawning off on others (though,since Stacy closed, nothing Butiki really has to be pawned off in this community so much as hoarded and protected with your life hahahah) . However, I will be happy to drink the rest of this on the last remaining cold evenings as spring hits :)
Flavors: Smoked, Sweet
