freaking. delish. THANK YOU elizabeth229 for this in a swap as well! I had a cup of Buttered Rum tea this morning for breakfast since I didn’t get the time to dig in last night. I hate to admit I didn’t even have time to finish it but wow was it amazing. The dry leaves smelled almost kind of sweet and fruity, maybe actually more like a sweet vanilla more than fruit. So I brew it up and it smells like a slightly creamy sweet BLACK tea (love when you can smell and taste the tea in a black tea). First sip was too hot to determine anything. So I let it cool. Then…

BAM!!

Amazing. I get a creamy, sweet, decadent, rich dessert tea. A slight bitterness which could be rum flavor or simply good tea! And a creamy butteriness (yes it’s a word now). I can’t even describe this tea it seems so unique to me. Clearly I need to sip a full cup and think about it more…I’ll write a better review later then.

Bio

Born and raised in Connecticut, went to college in Vermont, and moved back to work after a year of service.

I love sweet, decadent, desserty teas the most but I also appreciate a strong refreshing cup of green or white tea. I recently started a matcha smoothie morning, sometimes mate or black tea, then black tea and rooibos throughout the day, and whatever my little heart desires most when I get home from work!

I’m obsessed with Della Terra, DAVIDs, and 52teas because they have the best dessert teas but also have a selection of some more straight things too. Recently tried Simpson and Vail and LOVE them too!!

I don’t have a rating system, I just kind of guess. I think I should make a rating system…

85-100 I want this in my cupboard always
75-85 I like it but I’m not rushing out to buy more immediately
60-75 Probably not going to want more than the sample
40-60 I don’t like this tea, I wouldn’t recommend it, and I won’t drink it again
0-40 This wasn’t even worth the sip.

Ok let’s try that for a bit now.
