Nom nom. Today’s been all rain stormy. On days like this cuddling up on the couch with a super indulgent tea is super comforting and cozy. So when Butiki arrived in the mail today, this sample was the first tea I broke into. :)

Anyway, this tea is so so good. The liquor is a dark amber, which is fitting. The texture is thick and rich, and the chocolate is like a semi-sweet dark chocolate which is perfect since I’m a lover of dark chocolate. :) The raspberry compliments with it perfectly, neither flavor overwhelm the other. It’s just like biting into a thick truffle with raspberry filling, except without the million calories.

Yummy! :)

Hello! I’m a 24 year old Canadian, currently working at Starbucks while I figure out what I want to do with myself in life, haha.

Like most everyone else, I grew up with teabags, and then discovered the grass really WAS greener on the other side with loose leaf. Nowadays I drink nearly exclusively loose, but will drink a bagged tea if I don’t care what I’m having.

My favorite kind of tea is black, and unflavored, although I do enjoy an occasional dessert black. I like whites second best. I’ve recently been dipping my toes into honeybush tisanes, greens and oolongs.

My favorite vendors are Butiki Teas and Verdant Teas. Both have fantastic teas, above and beyond customer service (especially Butiki), and fair prices for their very high quality teas. I can’t recommend them enough.

Purely for tasting notes references, I don’t use any additives for my teas. Older tasting notes for blacks was with milk+sugar, and then with just milk. Whites, oolongs, greens and herbals are all drunk straight unless otherwise specified in the notes.
