So, at my school they serve these great buttery lemon poppy seed muffins.I know this is called Gooey Butter Cake, but to me this tastes more like one of those muffins, dipped thoroughly in black tea. There is a distinct flavor of creamy lemon and undertones of butter that are not present unless you allow this tea to cool. I agree with some of the other reviews, this is one of those teas that you NEED sugar in to taste the flavors. A little soy milk brought out the creaminess even more. Overall, I like this tea; it is a high quality black tea with a great, subtle flavor. Would I buy it again? Eh…52 teas has so many other great flavors, probably not. But neither will this languish in my tea cupboard without use or love, which I cannot say of some other teas.
