From Butiki Teas

Our Warm Cinnamon Bread pairs our malty Kenya Obsidian with a hot cinnamon flavor. The spiciness is more in flavor than actual heat and resembles a red hot candy. We added a very tiny amount of Taiwanese Lapsang Souchong to add depth of flavor, as this tea has a very slight smoky flavor. There is also a sugary bready flavor that lingers long after each sip. Adding sugar will sweeten the cinnamon and increase the cake flavor.

Ingredients: Kenyan Black Tea, Organic Cinnamon Chips, Taiwanese Lapsang Souchong, Safflower, Organic Pure Ground Vanilla Beans (No Fillers), Organic Natural Flavors (vegan)

Recommended Brew Time: 2 minutes 30 seconds
Recommended Amount: 1 level teaspoon of tea for 8oz of water
Recommended Temperature: 212 F (boiling)

This quite literally tastes like warm cinnamon bread! No complaints with the overall impression of this tea, I feel like it’s spot on!
Y’all know that I’m not a fan of black tea, however, this one’s base (albeit a little bitter and astringent) still manages to come-off smoothly at the same time. This black tea is palatable enough for me and that’s saying something!
You get a very bready flavour with a hit of mild, realistic cinnamon and a smokey aftertaste. Comfort in a cup!
After all this time, it’s possible that my tea is weaker now, thanks to hoarding as much as I could before Butiki closed its doors for good, (being weaker not necessarily a bad thing for this one, considering my distaste for black tea.)
Like most of Stacy’s tea blends, re-steeps beautifully.

Butiki has the cinnamon gauged just right for this tea. It’s distinct without that overpowering liquid cinnamon hearts candy taste that other cinnamon blends can take on. It has a pleasent, gentle warmth rather than trying to scorch out your taste buds.

Very bready, with a hint of cinnamon. Similar to real cinnamon bread. But I am a cinnamon fiend and wish there were a bit more.

Not My Cup O’ Tea TTB

I didn’t expect to like this one, as I don’t typically enjoy smoky teas. However, the smoke in this one is very light and somehow seems to balance out the spicy sweetness of the cinnamon. I don’t really taste anything bread-like in this blend, but the flavors work together perfectly and I’m actually really enjoying it!

Not a fan TTb. You really have to be a fan of smoky teas in order to enjoy this one. And I am not a fan so I can only say that all I taste is smoke. Actually I feel like I am sipping on a campfire. It tastes exactly like the smoke that follows you around a campfire and makes your eyes water and throat burn. I can’t finish this…. Campfires do not belong in my mouth…


Ok, I wanted to try this from the box but now that I’ve read this, no.


Not a Lapsang Souchong fan either? hehe yea I definitely think out of all teaas this one is definitely a required taste and then some.

Backlog from last weekend.

I enjoyed this, in spite of being ‘off’ most cinnamon teas lately. I guess it was just that right sort of cinnamon that tasted good, instead of whatever is used in most DavidsTea cinnamon teas. Not sure I caught the “bread” aspect here; I didn’t really taste anything other than a warm cinnamon. It isn’t a tea I’m upset to have unavailable; I may end up passing some of this off to a new home if someone enjoys it more than me, but I am glad I ended up caving and picking it up in one of my ridiculously many Butiki orders.

Yeahhhhh, not really a fan of this one. It’s one I got from CrowKettle in our Spring Meetup yesterday, and I requested it on name and it being Butiki. Had I actually looked at the tasting note and saw that it has smoky notes, I’d have passed, but I didn’t. And since I am so not a fan of smoky teas, I am not a fan of this one. I’m not really sure how a smoky base is part of cinnamon bread…but I know it was an attempt to use up teas and flavours near the end. There’s another serving left…I think I will share it with someone who likes smoky teas.

I’m sure this is lovely for someone that does like smoky teas, but it’s just not for me. I couldn’t finish my cup at work. :(


I wasn’t amazed by this one, although smoky doesn’t bother me and I thought it smelled good (it’s real crime was making me crave real cinnamon buns).


I’m thinking Bear With Me might like the rest of this. And yes, I was expecting a more desserty taste.

Sample from Zach S. Thank You!

Hmm. I wasn’t really a fan of this one. It mostly tastes earthy and smokey to me. I don’t really taste cinnamon or bred. I might like it better if the cinnamon was stronger. Oh well, it was nice to try.

I had to pick up some of this one. It’s actually surprisingly like 52Teas Buttered Cinnamon Toast, if you remove the fact that my pouch of that is older (I think), so the 52Teas butter flavor takes over a little bit. The Butiki tastes slightly like cinnamon bread. I was expecting the candy hearts/Hot Tamale candy type cinnamon that is mentioned in the description, but it is mild, so it does seem like the sugary cinnamon found in cinnamon bread. The Obsidian base always tastes like tomato to me, and it does here, but doesn’t ruin it. A little buttery and bready flavor somehow. I can’t tell that is has the Lapsang Souchong, which is surprising because on it’s own, the Lapsang is a little too much for this Lapsang Souchong fan. I like this tea, but it doesn’t scream Butiki special.
Steep #1 // 1 tsp // few min after boiling // 3 min steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // 4 min


It’s always wonderful to have a cinnamon tea taste like the actual ground stuff and not cinnamon hearts!

I was curious, so I added this to my last Butiki box. This smells slightly smoky red hots. The flavour more like cinnamon candy as well. It’s interesting, but not what I was expecting.
