drank Champagne Cider by Butiki Teas
358 tasting notes

I’m enjoying this as an afternoon cuppa. A little late, since New Years was last week, but I’m still in a celebratory mood! I’m not really getting any champagne from this, but it is a little like apple cider. The honeybush is really noticeable in the flavor, and the apple and spices just a little. I like it, and will gladly finish off the sample, but probably wouldn’t order more.

I woke up at 4 am today to check to see if our clinic schedule was posted for nursing school and it finally was! Luckily I have clinic on Wednesdays, so I didn’t have to get up and rush to the hospital this morning. I’m also feeling lucky because I didn’t get the 12-hour Saturday clinic like half of the class did. With clinic on Wednesday and class on Thursday and Friday, I have 2 more surprise days left of break! I thought about being productive and cleaning out my car, but it’s cold outside and I think I will just enjoy my surprise next-to-last day of break by reading and sipping tea. Hurrah! I hope everyone is staying warm in this crazy winter weather! We haven’t gotten any snow, but the high for tomorrow is 21 degrees, and I honestly don’t think that I’ve ever seen it that cold here. Brrrrrrrrrrrrr!

-Dry blend has small pieces of brown honeybush with pieces of dried apples and small orange petals.
-Dry leaves smell strongly of apples and spices. Tea liquor aroma is of apple cider with a hint of cinnamon.
-Tea liquor is a clear medium orange brown color.
-Light apple flavor with a sweet spicy finish. Soft aftertaste of lingering honeybush with a hint of orange.
-Best with sweetener. Milk optional.
-Good tea. Dominant honeybush flavor with sweet apples and just a hint of spices. Not reminiscent of champagne.

Just a Southern girl who loves sunshine, little dogs and all things tea!

I love animals and animal rescue. We have a rescued Chihuahua, Greyhound, Siamese and 2 Tabbies. We also foster kittens for the local humane society.

My favorite teas are sweet and malty black teas but I try to branch out and taste them all. :)
