I’m having one of those wonderful nights where my husband is taking some interest in my tea shelf and he chose this one at random for us to taste together. I have been reading wonderful reviews about this one recently so I am super hyped to be finally tasting it.
Upon opening the little bag I experienced such a wonderful floral smell, a magical blend of rose, jasmine and violet. It was very fresh smelling and very pure/natural. The oolong is a fresh dark green colour that has been cut into little balls and the flower petals add a touch of fun in the colour schemes.
Once brewed the soup becomes golden in colour with a desirable floral fragrance of which the rose and jasmine are the most prominent. It has a somewhat Turkish Delight vibe to it.
After his first sip my husband said that this tastes like “a flower shop” or “a big bunch of flowers”. It’s very simply put but he is correct, the first sips bring out the flower flavours and it’s not until a couple of sips later that you can taste the slight sweet and nutty oolong in the background. It’s a strongly floral blend but the rose and violet is exactly why I bought this tea in the first place so I can say it truly lives up to it’s name.
I am in love with this blend, it’s so simple yet so elegant. I feel as though I have the same floral warmth from this tea as I do when I have jasmine green pearls (which I adore).
Q. What do Butiki Teas and Charlie Sheen have in common?
A. They are always WINNING.
Yes that’s right this is yet another winner for me :)
