On the eighth day of Christmas, 52 Teas gave to me…Butter Rum!
This is one I’ve long thought about picking up a pouch of. I never have, for some reason, so I’m glad I’m getting a chance to try it now. The first sip is wonderful — I can definitely taste rum (and it’s a pretty accurate flavouring, too), and then comes a smooth buttery sweetness that really rounds the whole thing out. This brews up pretty strong and dark, so I added a splash of milk. I wasn’t sure if that’d be odd at first, but it actually suits this tea quite well. Something about the creaminess, maybe.
Anyway, this is a pretty perfect winter tea. I think I’m going to enjoy a cup on Christmas Eve, and maybe another with Christmas pudding on the big day itself! I was hoping desparately that I wouldn’t be disappointed with this one, and I’m thankfully not. I might actually get around to buying a full bag after all!
