Wow what an interesting tea! This is the first tea I am trying from the orders I received today from Butiki Teas and Tea Trekker.
This is the first time I have tried a tea that really does not taste at all like what I’ve always known as tea. (And I have had lots of blacks, greens, and oolongs before.) It was such an unusual flavor that I was really surprised. If I had to pinpoint it, I’d say it was much closer to the flavor of a sweet white wine than tea.
I did 2 infusions of 1 1/2 tsp in 12oz water. Followed Butiki’s steeping suggestions. 2nd infusion had more flavor than the first.
I am now even more excited to try all the other teas I got. If tea of this caliber can be so unique, then I am in for quite a variety.
