I think I’m finally getting back into my tea tasting routine. I’ve missed having a cup multiple times a day. I think I’ll be able to drink more hot tea if I have a fan blowing in my direction! This was the tea I picked for this evening. In the sip, I’m getting vegetables (almost grass), with a bit of that characteristic white tea taste. Overall, it’s quite a light cup. I must admit that I am so disappointed that my cup lacks any of the rich sweet cream or butter it claims to have. The only thing resembling butter is a bit of a salty finish to the sip. It’s smooth, simple and a bit refreshing. I just don’t understand how the description could be so very off — or maybe I did something wrong? Either way, I was a bit disappointed as I was expecting something different.
