My order from Butiki Teas arrived today. I wasn’t going to place an order because the teas that I order are teas that I review (as well as teas sent to me for review) and really, since Butiki Teas is closing soon, I didn’t figure that Stacy was looking for SororiTea Sisters reviews.

However, when I saw the announcement for the Lime Marshmallow tea I couldn’t stand it and I knew I had to try it. I already missed out on the smoky banana one and I didn’t want to miss out on trying the Lime Marshmallow. And that tea looked woefully lonely in the cart all by itself so I added a couple of other teas.

And yeah, i’ll review them eventually on SororiTea Sisters because that’s what I do: Drink, Write, Repeat.

This is actually really quite good. I was a little disappointed at first because I wasn’t getting a strong chocolate-y flavor that I want. (I always want more chocolate.) There is a nice amount of spice – it’s peppery and it provides a swift kick to the palate but it isn’t an overwhelming HOT sensation. I feel the tingle and the burn in the back of the throat from the pepper but it isn’t so hot that I feel like I need to find something to tame the heat.

And the chocolate is coming through. If I were to offer any complaint, it would be that it needs more chocolate. (Again, please refer to my simple scientific equation: more chocolate = better.) But, there is a nice balance between sweet chocolate and spicy chili here. And the black tea base is sweet, I taste light notes of honey that stay through the aftertaste. Nice. It’s a really pleasant black tea, it’s strong enough to be tasted amid notes of chocolate and chili.

Overall, this gets a yum from me. I’m happy that I put this in the cart.


This sounds like one fascinating combination, and Lime Marshmallow too!

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:

I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
