OH MY GOODNESS

I prepared a cup of this sample from Stacy and it was amazing…so much so that I didn’t trust my own judgement alone.

I’ll tell you what it isn’t first. It’s NOT malty, yammy or chocolate. This black tea is unique. I’ve never tasted a black tea like this one before! I’ve had some outstanding black tea’s. They hit every mark that a great black tea should achieve and I’ve been happy (and I love my malty, chocolaty black tea’s).

Then Stacy sent this sample and it was different than the rest.

I had a little bit of tea left in the sample packet, enough for a
4oz. gaiwan at my Tea House, so I took the rest there Saturday Night.

I waited until everyone was gone except Preston, Joe, Sam and I.

Preston heated the gaiwan, put the long,wiry tea leaves into it and waited for them to warm up for scenting.
Then he lifted the top, put his nose down to smell the aroma, and said, WAFFLES!”

Yep! Each of us sniffed the leaves and they smelled like the best Belgian WAFFLES ever! I couldn’t believe how delicious the aroma was.

The first steep was sweet, tasting like cotton candy or powdered sugar with an ice cream milkiness…thickening in the mouth in a delightful way. Such a dessert-like tea! Sweet and smooth.

The expression on Sam and Joe’s faces, and the WOW, THIS IS FANTASTIC!”, (Said with gusto) isn’t something I hear from these young men.

I took a whiff of the wet leaves…coriander, honey maple syrup…interesting.

A second steep had a golden raisin flavor with muscat-honey syrup and butter. Thick in the back of the mouth and not cloying. I thought of sweet cornbread and honey-butter.

I didn’t have enough leaves to continue…and I want more. TEA!
We all want more. The raving (craving) about this tea carried over to today. Joe told Eric how amazing the flavor was.

By what magic Stacy acquired this tea, I have no idea, but let me tell you… when this becomes available on the Butiki Site, do all you can to get a hold of it before it’s gone!

It’s Golden Globe, Academy Award…you name it, this tea has it all.

Winner, Fabulous, Must Have in my Cabinet Forever!

Bonnie-Glad you like this one! I love this one too! Like our Gui Fei & Mi Xian Black, this too has been bitten by leaf hoppers but it is different in that it is a wild tea and is pretty limited in quantity.

It should be up on our website later this week though we do have it in stock now, so it can be purchased now.
