Drinking this while my tiny baby son lies grunting in his bassinet… why won’t he just sleep! I figured this tea was appropriate… Anyhow, I’m seeing comments about this tea being “buttery”, and I absolutely agree. I missed it the first time, but it’s pretty strong. Weird. I liked Butter Sencha but this is… odd.


I remember those “please, just SLEEP!!!” days. They do pass, but nights are long until they do! Peace and rest to both of you.

Butter Sencha was more buttery greens/vegetal IMO and this is Buttery Ramen. At least to me…


Roswell Strange – I can see what you mean (I had a bit left that was cold). The base green seems different, this one being more of a Chinese sencha type, while Butter Sencha is Japanese? I’m not actually looking at the ingredient lists, but Japanese senchas, IMO, tend to have those lovely vegetal qualities while Chinese senchas are flatter (orrr maybe that’s my biased opinion since the latter are more often used as base teas and are often kind of bleh).


gmathis – Thanks! I’m in the midst of a miraculous third stretch of “night” sleep right now (I’m awake… things to do!) and can’t wait for this to become routine… I am exhausted!

I don’t actually know what kind of green tea base this one has (ingredients list doesn’t specify), but I’d wager you’re most likely correct and it’s probably Chinese.

Smells very buttery…tastes like butter and green tea. I am not a huge fan of this one but it is drinkable.

This tea may just be my favourite tea yet. I don’t generally gravitate to green teas, and if it hadn’t been for getting a free 25g bag at a special event in my store, I would have just passed it by. On first smell, this tea smells buttery and a bit floral, but it is the buttery scent that really stands out. This tea brews up to a pale green/yellow and the buttery scent remains along with the grassy green tea scent. First taste….oh my, this tea is light, slightly earthy and definitely creamy/buttery. It is just SO good. If you are familiar with butter sencha and enjoyed it, then you will enjoy this. In fact, I would say it has more of a true butter taste than butter sencha did. The valerian root and green tea is an interesting combo and I don’t find myself getting overly stimulated by this tea, in fact I usually drink it at night. It doesn’t make me sleepy either, but rather just soothed and calm. I’ve since purchased 300g with plans for another 500 or so before it is discontinued.

So, this tea smells and tastes STRONGLY of buttery noodles. Like, straight up ramen coated in butter. It’s actually more buttery than Butter Sencha, to be honest. I didn’t think I’d like this one because it’s mostly just Valerian and green tea; I didn’t expect to like the strong green tea taste I was sure it would have. Really though, it’s the BUTTER NOTES that are ruining for me. I think I’d actually prefer a more grassy taste…

Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
