drank Raspberry Truffle by Butiki Teas
38 tasting notes

My sister came over earlier and after I made her smell all of my new teas, she wanted a cup of this because it smelled very interesting.

I enjoy truffles (especially raspberry truffles), and this tea honestly smells exactly like a raspberry truffle. It has a very strong chocolate scent, as well as a very strong raspberry scent.

When I took the first sip, I honestly thought it tasted a little weak. My sister, however, thought it was really, really good. I took a few more sips, and although I appreciated the light flavor, I decided to add just a little bit of honey. The description said that sugar would awake the tea, so I thought I would try it.

I thought that the honey definitely brought out some of the flavors. After I added the honey, I thought that the chocolate note was definitely a lot stronger. I was very impressed.

I really enjoyed this tea, and could definitely see myself drinking this again after dinner as a desert tea. If I had it again, I would probably add just a little bit of honey to it.
