3020 Tasting Notes
Stacy 100% captures melon in this just as she has done in her other melon teas but I find I am missing the cream notes I loved in Cantaloupe & Cream. Granted that’s not a fair comparison as it doesn’t claim to be a cream tea but the flavor is just so similar that I can’t help but draw parallels that leave me missing it’s predecessor. For what it is though, it is excellently executed as to be expected from Butiki.
I brewed this up this morning and was quite excited given the rave reviews this tea has been getting but tbh I was disappointed. It’s good but I find I enjoy the individual elements much more than the combination of them together. I just find them to be richer in flavor where as this is muted to me (and I know that is probably just me since so many others love this). However, my lack of love for this tea makes it that much easier to happily pass this along to another steepster who will enjoy it far more than I ever could.
So I had this before and I don’t recall it much but I remember thinking I was not a huge fan. As I drink it now, I am finding it pleasant. There is a generic fruit flavor with distinctive honey notes, just as Lupicia advertises but that’s it. Nothing particularly special so though I am enjoying the cup, it is one I am likely to forget soon enough.
This is one of the teas from the December Amoda box and when I opened the package, I immediately got a whiff of the juicy berry flavoring in the tea. It was amazing and as the tea steeped, the smell just got stronger. It was so familiar and so delectable but I could not place it…until I took my first sip. It tasted much like DAVIDs Blueberry Jam. It is not as jammy as that tea though due to (1) the addition of hibiscus which is quelling the sweetness and (2) the lack of stevia sweetener also leading to less sweetness. Instead, it is weaker and more like indulging in a bowl of berries. Tasty but not something I must have again.
