Hooray! My order arrived! :) This is the first of the samples I received that I’m breaking into.
The leaves are just as pretty in real life as the preview photo on Facebook a little while ago. :) Steeped up, the liquor is very pale, almost translucent. I find the main thing I smell is strawberries, but when I take a sip, while the strawberries are very present, I find the predominate taste is the toffee! Which is fabulous, because it was the toffee that intrigued me the most about this tea. :)
I love toffee. I love how it’s buttery, nutty, sweet in that ‘gooey’ way, and also salty. I get all of that in this tea, as well as the strawberry.
I find while in most cases with Butiki Teas, the flavors don’t usually come so strong that you can’t taste the tea anymore, but I actually do have that with this one. It might be because I’m pretty uncultured when it comes to green teas, but for once I’m not complaining about that because the taste of the toffee is so delectable I just want to keep tasting it. :D Ha.
This tea is a very interesting combination of flavors (I never would’ve thought strawberry and toffee would be a good pairing, but I trusted Stacy and sure enough she was right!) and it’s super good. Really enjoying this cup. :)
Thanks for packing this into my box! :D
