This was the first tea I ever wanted from 52teas, now I want them all :)
I have never had butterbeer, magical or otherwise. I can definitely imagine this is what it would taste like. This tea smells and tastes like thick creamy rootbeer. I imagine a rootbeer float. The root beer flavour is not as sweet as a soda (or pop for all of us Canadians) would be. The liquid feels thick and heavy in my mouth. There is a slight, dry aftertaste.
The tea is good hot but I actually prefer it after it has cooled off and it is warm-ish.
