My Butiki order arrived yesterday! I’ve basically been getting packages in the mail all week, and well I know you know how awesome that feels.
This was one of the teas I ordered a lot of, because I fell in love with it the first time I tried it and actually managed to brew fairly consistent cups afterwards. As soon as I opened the bag, the intensely strong scent of a strawberry rhubarb pie assailed my nostrils, and I basically wanted to start eating the tea itself, complete with licking the packaging. Instead, I brewed up a cup and had it the civilized way.
You know how when you’re given a fresh piece of strawberry rhubarb pie right out of the oven? And there it is, sitting all nice and triangle-shaped on your plate, and there you are with your fork or spoon or whatever, and then you take your first bite and the whole pie explodes? and the strawberries just come bursting out, dripping and oozing sticky strawberry juice all over the place? and you think screw it, and start savagely going at it with your hands? That’s how this tastes. Mmm.
