drank Red Queen Cupcake by Butiki Teas
1004 tasting notes

This tea is ridiculously good. I got a sample with my birthday order before the tea was named. I drank one cup plain a week or so ago and hoarded the other half of the sample till today, and I am drinking this cup lightly sweetened. To me the espresso manifests itself as just a richer deeper chocolate flavor. (kind of like a cake recipe I tried once with a tiny bit of espresso powder added, doesn’t taste like coffee, just richer chocolate! Don’t be scared, coffee haters!) The strawberry and chocolate seem very well balanced and with sugar the cake-vibe is definitely enhanced, though it was rich and creamy and VERY delicious even without. I love the assertive assam base. This is one of the best chocolate+fruit teas ever! Really great stuff. Can’t rave about it enough!

I love pretty much every type of tea camellia sinensis can produce. I like herbal teas sometimes but I can’t stand rooibos.

Butiki, Verdant, Mandala, TeaVivre and Den’s are my favorite online retailers so far.
