OMG… DRINK ALL THIS TEA!!!!!
This is another amazing tea from Butiki. The leaves are phenomenally huge. (Picture after steeping: http://s1165.photobucket.com/user/dagony/media/Tea%20Stash/IMG_1976_zps47b28c20.jpg.html?sort=3&o=1)
Soft, creamy caramel that perfectly complements the tea without covering it up. This is only my second tea that can satisfy my need for dessert without being dessert. I tried it with a little sugar and it seems to overwhelm the tea while bringing out the caramel even more. Not bad, but completely unnecessary. And I did not care for it with milk. Again, not a bad taste but it seems to muddy up the tea flavor.
This is the perfect tea for today. It’s far too cold to be spring and I’m trying not to eat anything since we are going out to the Brazilian grill tonight with friends and I want room for meat! This should keep me feeling warm and not hungry yet not fill me up.
My only complaint – it’s hard to measure 2 teaspoons when the leaves don’t fit in the spoon! I probably got more than 2 teaspoons in my cup. I’m on the second steep and it’s still good.
