The Sad, The Glad, What's Next

The Sad
I'm sad to say that our entire stock of Organic Spring Twist has been sold.  This was one of my personal favorite green teas but hopefully we will be restocking it next spring/summer. For those of you that enjoyed this wonderful tea, I would like to recommend our Organic Huangshan Mao Feng, which has sweet pea, artichoke, white corn, and fresh cut grass notes as well as some light Brazil nut notes.  Our Organic Huangshan Mao Feng is currently on sale for $4.00 a half ounce.

The Glad
Recently, we have added 2 new teas and a new sampler to our site.  Here is a little more info about those items:

Maple Pecan Oolong
Our Maple Pecan Oolong utilizes our Nilgiri Frost Oolong base. This smooth, silky tea has maple notes that develop into pecan notes then finish with maple notes that linger. Some citrus notes may also be detected. The flavors weave together brilliantly and are well balanced with the oolong base. With a little sugar the maple and pecan intensify for a wonderful desert treat that resembles a pecan pie. We recommend adding sugar slowly; too much sugar and the tea will taste like exactly like fresh maple syrup with a hint of pecan. Check it out: Oolong Teas

Grapefruit Dragon
Our Grapefruit Dragon has an Organic Dragon Well base that originates from Anhui, China. At the beginning of the sip, the grapefruit is almost immediately noticed then the mellow sweet marine notes of the green tea appear. Towards the end of the sip, more intense natural grapefruit notes produce a slight tartness that tingles the tongue. The grapefruit flavor most resembles pink grapefruit or perhaps a gentle white grapefruit. With a little brown crystal sugar the grapefruit flavor is much sweeter and juicier with only minimal tartness and somewhat resembles a Grapefruit Brulee but sweeter.  Check it out: Green Teas

Autumn Comfort Sampler
all is one of our favorite seasons. As the weather cools, we look forward to fuzzy blankets, leaves changing colors, rich foods, decadent desserts, and joyful holidays. Our Autumn Comfort brings together some of the wonderful flavors of the season. This sampler offers 1oz each of the following teas/tisane: Maple Pecan Oolong, Cider Guayusa, Pumpkin Creme Brulee (black tea), and Almond Indulgence (black tea). Purchased individually, these teas would cost $19.00 but together we are offering them for only $14.75. That's 22% off their individual prices  Check it out: Samplers

What's Next
Quite a bit is going on here at Butiki Teas.  Right now we are waiting on one ingredient to arrive before our Pistachio Ice Cream tea is back in stock.  Hopefully, it will arrive in a week so we can immediately start blending a new batch.  Additionally, we are in the final stages of preparing the Luxury Sampler.  This sampler will include our Mi Xian Black, Organic Huangshan Mao Feng, and our Anxi Tie Guan Yin.  The teas will be housed in individual tins and will come in a burgandy organza bag.  In the next month or so we will be adding some new tea ware to our site.  We will also be adding a few Glenburn Estate teas within the next few months and a new premium Bi Lo Chun will be added shortly.  Lastly, we have several new flavored teas in the works.  Our current project is a marshmallow tea.  Right now we are leaning towards a Marshmallow Darjeeling but would love to hear suggestions.  We are hoping to have a marshmallow tea ready by the end of October.
