21 Tasting Notes


I picked this tea up during our recent trip to England. I love this tea first thing in the mornings. The rose is quite subtle and mixes wonderfully with the black tea leaves. I love seeing the dry leaves, the rose petals are delicately mixed in with the leaves.

Stacy, thank you for the sample!
It’s 80 some degrees in Michigan right now at 8:00 in the morning, summer has officially arrived! To celebrate, I wanted to start my morning off with a summery tea. I decided to try the Pineapple Oolong sample that came with my Butiki order.

The aroma has a nice hint of pineapple with some floral notes. The combination of the pineapple and orchid is simply delightful in this tea. I don’t even usually care for fruity or floral teas! I love the bit of pineapple flavor that is left on my tongue after sipping. I might be crazy but the combination of flavors is giving me an almost peachy after taste. It’s light and fun, the perfect summer tea.

I just got this in the mail today! I’m not normally a fan of fruity teas, but this one is nice. It literally brought a smile to my face as I was drinking it. It tastes like sunshine in a cup! I love the creaminess mixed with the notes of citrus. I approve!

I forgot to mention, my husband opened up my tin and told me it smells like cleaning solution. Needless to say, that put a slight damper on my experience. However, it doesn’t taste like cleaning solution so we’re good!


My husband always says the most ridiculous things about tea too, LOL!

I stopped into Whole Foods, needing a quick tea fix. I’ve been out for the past several week. No need to worry, I just placed an order at Butiki Teas. This tea was on sale so I decided to give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised! The tea has a green tea base with notes of citrus and licorice. It’s light and refreshing, I approve! It is a bagged tea so the flavor isn’t as full as I would like but regardless this is a good tea.

I went to Whole Foods looking for some loose leaf tea. I didn’t find any, but I picked up this tea instead. This one is kind of lacking in flavor, I have to put at least two bags in my cup. I think I’ll stick with my loose leaf.

My stepbrother got me this for Christmas (he definitely got taken by the pushy salespeople, tin and all!). I’ve always wanted to try this but could never justify spending that much, however I love this! It is extremely grassy and vegetal which I absolutely love. This is the perfect green tea.

One of my favorite things in the world is sitting on the couch with my two year old in my lap, drinking tea together in the mornings.Lately we’ve been drinking this tea because we are out of black loose leaf. We both enjoy it, not my favorite tea but it has a nice warm flavor. I steep it for about 5-7 minutes, the spices aren’t as strong as I would like but they do the job!


aw that is so sweet! there is nothing more satisfying than cuddling a toddler :D

Oh I love this one! My 18 month old and I have been sipping it together (he loves it too!) I tried it warm and cold, and I have to say I like it warm the best. I love the way the cinnamon and mint warm my throat as they go down. Yummm, I can’t wait to order more.

I agree with Michelle on this one, I can’t possibly the match the eloquent description that Brenden has provided. Every time I drink this tea, I imagine myself walking in a Michigan forest at dawn. I drank five cups of the Sleeping Bear Blend this morning, and I’m still unable to find the right words to describe this one. I love how light this tea is, especially mixed with the faint hints of pine needles. It does have a buttery flavor to it, which I’m normally not a huge fan of, but it works in this tea. This is definitely one of my favorite green teas.

Good Morning!
I’m a currently a mom/wife/graduate student. I love movies and books, and tea happens to go wonderfully with both of those things! I usually start out my day with a black tea and then drink several cups of green tea throughout the afternoon. I don’t put anything in my tea, I like it just the way it is!
