ARGH! I have had this twice already but it’s been days ago so this is kind of a faded tasting note x2.

Okay, I tacked this on to my French Toast black tea order out of a mild curiosity. I likely would not have placed an order specifically for this, even though I am a big Harry Potter fan and I have always had my own ideas of what butterbeer would taste like if it were an actual thing.

Steep notes: 1 tsp., 8 oz. water, below parameters. Some sugar, no creamer added.

Imagine rootbeer with a smoother buttery overtone and that’s this tea. I always felt like butterbeer was intended to be served hot based on a memory from the Goblet of Fire where Harry took a sip and felt the warmth spread down to his toes, so even though there’s rootbeer flavors, this works really well warm.

For an add on tea, this has been my favorite in the order so far. I’ll have to do another tasting note (while I’m actively drinking it, haha) to make sure I give a more thorough tasting review…that will probably be sooner rather than later!

I have come to the point (as of October 2014) where quality in tea is more important than quantity. Especially because I’m a seasonal tea drinker where hot tea is concerned, and a SLOW one to boot. I generally don’t resteep only because I’d be here all day if I did, though I do break out a gaiwan from time to time.

I adore French teas in practically every iteration, Japanese Sencha (specifically from the Uji region, as they offer the most seaweed flavor), and Dan Cong oolongs. I am trying to focus on plain teas and so companies like Verdant, Upton, and Butiki are on my favorites list.

When it comes to tea, I feel like the 10th Doctor says it best:

“Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses. "
