I received my first order from Butiki Teas on Friday, and I couldn’t wait to give this one a try.
First off, the dry loose tea smells absolutely intoxicating. There is no fake cantaloupe flavor at all- only a true fruit smell. I promptly brewed up some this morning and was amazed. Not only is it a gorgeous tea while it’s steeping, but it smells fantastic.
And the flavor? Incredible. Again, I kept expecting a fake fruit flavor, but there was only a true cantaloupe taste. And I’m not even a huge fan of cantaloupe, but I loved it. There’s also a creaminess that’s hard to describe – definite vanilla notes though that really enhance the melon flavor. Finally, there is a slight “leafy” taste to the tea that adds a natural edge to it. It’s amazing how layered the flavors are in this tea.
This was my first try of a Butiki tea and I can’t wait for moroe!!
