A busy day requires a very large pot of tea, especially since this is my first of the day. To start with I had work and afterwards I ended up in the hairdressers for over three hours (my mum had her hair dyed before our holiday), so my desperation for tea has grown and grown throughout the whole day.
In raw form this tea has large pieces of dried peach amongst it’s dark brown leaves. Also something green and finely chopped..some sort of herb or leaf? There is a sweet fruit scent but not recognisable yet as peach.
Once steeped this tea is dark brown in colour and has a juicy fruity peach/apricot aroma. Not as sweet as it’s raw form but much fruitier.
The first few sips reveal a rich, malt black tea base with sweet fruit highlights and a rather toasty after taste. For me it’s sweet enough to not need any additional sweetener. The peach is juicy and sweet and the raw pieces were really soft like gummy sweets. It’s a nice balance, fruity enough to be a fruit tea but with an actual tea base that also makes it a tea with a touch of fruit.
I bet this would be amazing as an iced tea. The majority of Butiki blends that I have tried so far have a delicious natural sweetness that’s like magic. It makes a lot of their teas familiar so they do have that unique factor down, their blends literally are their blends.
Another tea I’m sorry to see go but at least I can enjoy the cup and half left in my pot. :)
