This is a lovely tea. The buttery aspect is very much there; there’s a rich, sweet scent that rises from the hot tea and the taste is reminiscent of artichoke hearts dipped in butter, and faintly sweet creamery butter at that. I agree with the reviewer that says there’s something reminiscent of a salty feel hovering around the periphery without anything actually being salty about the taste itself, which is an aspect I particularly like. On the second infusion of this tea I can detect a ghost-like sweetness which is present as the faintest of aftertastes. Drinking this is really a lovely and pleasurable experience.
