916 Tasting Notes
My Butiki order came yesterday! YAY!!! Happy Butiki day to everyone else enjoying birthday orders today, too!
I had to try this one first, after how good Stacy made it sound. It does not disappoint! Good darjeelings remind me of a cross between a black and a white tea. It has some delicious qualities of both. It is very smooth and has NO astringency. I find I actually prefer a little bit of astringency in my teas sometimes but this is pretty magnificent! The flavor is on the lighter side but the body of the liquor is somewhat thick.
I am enjoying tasting how the flavor is changing as the cup cools. This tea is complex and has a lot to offer :)
Ohhhhh, that explains it. I finally tried this one over the weekend. I didn’t know what it was but that something in the blend didn’t agree with me. It is icky icky rooibos! My archnemesis!!! Sorry Marzipan and thanks for the sample. I’ve got a couple of cups left, if anyone would like them.
