Nom! This tea is pretty awesome. I had no idea what I was going to get with this one. I didn’t know what the butternut referred to. I love butternut squash and I love buttery tasting nuts so I figured I couldn’t go wrong. Apparently, there is actually a nut called ‘butternut’ and it is similar to a walnut. That’s what this tea has in it.

This tea has giant chunks of nuts that look like chestnuts (but are actually the butternuts), whole cardamom pods, and lots of other things I couldn’t identify. There isn’t an ingredients list, so I guess I’ll just have to quit analyzing it and enjoy it. It smells amazing in the package. Sweet and heavenly and butterscotchy.

The one thing that must be in this tea is green rooibos instead of red. There are some green leaves in the mix and when it is brewed it is an orangy-yellow color (which I’ve never seen with red rooibos). And the taste!! The taste is like those Brach’s butterscotch candies. ❤ It smells like that too. I can just catch a taste of spice in the background.

I do think I needed more tea leaves and will try that next time. I used 2 tsp to 11 oz. Could probably use 3 tsp.

Do it. And Fava teas lets you order by the ounce. So, you don’t wind up with giant bags of tea. Just large samples. I also got the Carrot Cake flavor which I’ll probably try tomorrow.
