This was an ok tea but there are a lot better earl grey teas out there. I found it too pricey for low to mid range quality loose leaf tea

Yep, I was into steeped tea for a while-not anymore. Just as a comparison, 50g of rooibos tea blends from iHOT (local tea shop)= $5.75, DAVIDs TEA: around $7, Steeped tea: around $8.50. They are really overpriced.

Ya and it’s not like the tea is exceptional quality or anything

Ewww…i tried this as a cold brew since I have been doing all my herbals that way lately. Since creme caramel rooibos turned out well as a cold brew, I though his would be ok too. I was wrong, so very wrong. It is WAY too sweet and just…yuck.

I surprisingly enjoyed this as a cold brew.

I finished this off with some honey, lemon, and ginger because I have a summer cold. Blah to summer colds :(

drank Coco Colada by DAVIDsTEA

This was a good cold brew but it was a little too artificially sweet. But, I really enjoy coconut, so this is definitely something that I would drink.

This is a sad sipdown because this is my last cuppa of Butiki Teas. Their tea was exceptional. I will miss their naturally flavoured tea, and the straight ones too.
This was a fabulous tea—-hot or cold brewed.

Aww, this was truly amazing.

Thank you for the sample Teavivre!
This tea is certainly fragrant! It smells delicious, like sweet potatoes and brown sugar with a hint of cocoa.
The taste translates fairly well into the taste, but maybe a little milder than I expected. The cocoa notes aren’t as strong as I would have liked based on the taste but it is a lovely cuppa. The sweet potatoe/molasses notes last throughout the resteep as well.
I used the whole packet which was about 2T

I finished this off as a cold brew and it was delicious! Sweet with slight nutty and mocha notes.

VariaTEA

I miss this tea. It was so lovely.

Super Starling!

I’m so depressed that Butiki Teas doesn’t exist any more. Every time I read a review, I get excited about trying them, then remember the horrible truth.

Ya, Butiki was so good!! There is other good tea out there in the tea world though!!

I really enjoyed this tea but it did get astringent if brewed too long.
It is sweet but still robust enough for the morning.

This makes a delicious cold brew, and convenient with those tea bags. Great for the summer!

Bio

Hello,
I am a nurse. I have numerous hobbies: reading, crocheting, crafting, card making, scrapbooking, photography, shopping, and of course drinking TEA!

I started drinking loose leaf tea in Dec. 2010 when I went into a DavidsTea for the first time and have been hooked ever since! My favourite is probably white tea, but I also love black and oolong. I also like a nice relaxing rooibos or herbal in the evening. On Sundays, I like to treat myself and make a tea latte.

My favourite flavours are nutty, vanilla, chocolate, jasmine, tropical, fruity, earl grey.
My dislikes are lavender, rose, hibiscus, banana, and straight green or overly vegetal teas.

I am admittedly fairly generous in my rating scale. Most of my teas I rate at 90 and above, and would re-stock these teas.
Anything under 90 I probably wouldn’t re-stock unless I found a great price.
