drank Buttered Rum (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
902 tasting notes

So, basically, if a tea has something like “champagne” or “whiskey” in the name, I’m going to buy it, if for no other reason than I can drink it at work and pretend it’s a lovely cocktail or glass of wine. Buttered Rum? Of course I’m gonna try it!

The smell is fantastic. I was basically huffing the stuff as Chloe was working her tea magic. The taste: rich black tea, with creamy butter, the barest hint of coconut, and rum. Rummy-rum rum. I’m drinking this first cup straight, and will be adding the recommended milk/sugar to the next.

I have plans for this tea, yes I do: the morning of the first snow day (yes, I get snow days: let the envy start), I’m going to brew a big pot o’ this up, spike liberally with rum, sit in front of the window, and simply gaze at the fallen snow.

With brown sugar and milk, it’s okay. Now, keep in mind that I prefer unaltered tea, and am crap at figuring out how much milk/sugar to put in a cup. It does taste more buttery this way, but I prefer the plain, unaltered version myself.

Kristen

going to go try this one now!

Jaime

Bio

My love of tea started in 2001, whilst in an internship in London, England. I shared an office with a lovely man who would make me a cup of tea every morning without asking me if I even wanted it. I drink my tea neat now, because I’ve yet to find the sugar/milk combination that lives up to Pablo’s.

I drink any and all kinds of tea, and love trying new brands/varieties/flavors.
