Taster’s Review:

I have issues with eating certain kinds of food and then feeling disgusting, heavy, and bloated.  This especially happens when I have any kind of carbs.  So lately I have been doing a lot of research to see if there was some herb or tea that I could drink that would help.  That is how  I stumbled upon this company, Raizana.  They have several different kinds of herbal remedies for what “ails you”.  I don’t necessarily believe that there is a skinny tea out there but I do believe that some herbs can make you feel better.  So I decided to take a chance and pick up their sampler.

Now to be honest, I am a huge fan of herbal teas.  I love chamomile and adore lemongrass in teas.  I’m also a huge mint fan and tend to like most mint teas I come across.  The biggest reason I picked this tea up was because it had cilantro in it.  I had never even heard of a cilantro tea before.  I have a love affair with cilantro and sneak it into as many foods as I can.  The ingredients also list dill weed and passionflower.  I just had to try it!

When I popped open the bag, holy sweetness is all I can say! This definitely has a very sweet bakery smell to it which I think comes from the papaya flavoring and stevia.  I steeped this one up per their parameters and was pleasantly surprised.  This is one of the sweetest herbal teas I have ever had.  And it isn’t that artificial sweet taste.  This has an almost dessert quality to it.  Like a freshly baked treat. I don’t taste the cilantro at all but definitely pick up the minty notes and chamomile.  The lemongrass is also prevalent and letting itself be known but not in an obnoxious way.  I even tried this one iced and still had the same outcome.  A lemony baked treat. Yum!

Now to whether or not it helps with my digestion, that I really can’t say.  I have completely overhauled my diet as of late and am cutting junk food out all together, which was a major cause for a lot of my discomfort.  All I can say that this is great for when I have that sweet tooth craving and am looking forward to having this one again.

Taster’s Review:

OK, yeah, you got me.  I ordered this one out of sheer curiosity.  Pineapple … Cilantro? Cream???  That sounds just too weird for me to NOT try.

And I’m loving this Pineapple Cilantro Cream White Tea Blend from Butiki Teas.  Yes, it’s unusual, quite unlike any tea that I’ve ever tried!  But, that may just be what I like best about it – it is so different, and yet, so tasty!  This combination of flavors really works well.

The first thing I notice about this tea – besides the unique taste! – is that the flavors are remarkably well-balanced.  It doesn’t taste like Pineapple with a hint of cilantro and a creamy backdrop, or like a heavily cilantro’d white tea with notes of pineapple and cream.

I taste the three components of pineapple, cilantro and cream pretty equally.  The white tea is a nice base for this because it tastes light and crisp, and really contributes to the overall *fresh taste* of this tea.  The pineapple adds a sweet, juicy note.  The cilantro is enhanced by the freshness of the white tea and it offers just a hint of herbaceous warmth to the cup.  The cream softens the cup, sweetens it – and melds beautifully with the natural creamy tones of the Bai Mu Dan.  It is a well-rounded, exotic tasting experience for the palate!

And this gets even better as it cools – making it a delightfully different iced tea treat!  What a clever blend from Butiki Teas!
