Thanks to Stacy of Butiki teas for sending me this free sample!
Hmm, my experience with tamarind has been somewhat limited but I’ve had it before with Indian food. It has a very fruity, slightly sour type of taste. This tea actually does have an almost fizzy quality on your tongue. I’m getting a bit of vanilla and not a lot of cacao, but that’s ok. The tamarind flavor here is so nice! A very unique and interesting tea, I’d like to try this iced someday too, I bet it would be really good that way! :)
I did try it with a little turbinado sugar and I think the extra sweetness helped to pull this together quite nicely. I say: YUM!
