So, it’s a beautiful fall day here, but I slept in because I have a headache. I am low on my teas since I used the last of my Pumpkin Chai and the largest amount of tea I have at the moment is The Earl’s Garden which would have aggravated my head more. I have a little of The Skinny left, and a bit more of Buttercream and Caramellisimo. But I am out of milk, and all of these are ones I prefer milky. In the end, I decided to give Buttercream a go, sans milk, to see if it has a different flavour or feel on its own, just sweetened a bit.
So anyhow, I decided to use Buttercream, even though I am out of milk.
I have to say I do prefer it milky, and that’s strange to say that I prefer a white tea with milk…it seems so wrong. I’ve never had a white tea with milk before, but Buttercream changed that. I think that with this blend, the milk enhances a creaminess in the tea, giving it a more icing-like taste as expressed in the description. That said, this tea is perfectly fine without milk, and as a fruity white tea, it is smooth and pleasant. I admit I generally prefer my teas sweetened, though I did try this one without any sweeener at first. I found it fine, but I think that this tea is best with a little sugar to bring out the fruit flavour and help it live up to its name…Buttercream. Buttercream icing is sweet, and so should this tea be.
Anyhow, I’m keeping my rating as is, as I find this tea incredible. I am definitely going to stock up (read: hoard) on more Buttercream before it vanishes at the end of the month.
