I must start by saying that I am a new-found fanboy of this new brand; I am not paid or given any promotional kickbacks for touting this brand.

Now with that said, I LOVE this tea! It is another superb offering. Steep time and water temp are to my usual likings, the high-quality sachet stays in the cup the whole duration of enjoying the tea and the water temp is boiling.

Aroma Profile: To start the aroma is of a light butter, slightly toasted cashew nuts and a slight hint of grape leaves. It’s not off-putting.

Taste Profile: This tea starts with, again, a light butter, a hint of creamy sweetness, slightly toasted cashew nuts and the slightest hint of a herbal note [I would describe it as a fennel characteristic]. The longer the sachet stays in, the more intense the flavor profile becomes but it never gets bitter or inedible. However, the fennel herbal note disappears and the other notes intensify somewhat but not to the extent of overpowering your taste buds. There is no thickness feel on the tongue or a full mouth feel either.

Aftertaste: There is a crispness to this tea that lingers. I would compare this tea’s aftertaste to a Chardonnay wine. It possess the buttery, creaminess along with the nuts but with a clean, crisp finish.

I would highly recommend this tea.
