I need to preface this note with a declaration: Butiki Teas are AWESOME. I ordered quite a few teas lately (taking advantage of the very generous Black Friday sale they had). I have not yet written notes for most of them, but I have tried almost all. What I can say is that they are works of art, each and every one. The look, the aroma, and the taste. Oh, the taste – the taste of the Tamarind Pop tea has even appeared in my dreams. So yeah, I’m mighty impressed with these teas.
Now this one is cantaloupe through and through. I am usually skeptical about flavored white tea. White tea is so gentle, it’s flavor very subtle. Flavoring often is either too light or overpowering the gentle white taste. This one is not like that. The taste of the Bai Mu Dan comes through and is enhanced by the juicy taste of the cantaloupe. The tastes really compliment each other without taking over.
and WOW, this is so very cantaloupe! I really don’t know how she does it. It smells like cantaloupe and it tastes like liquid cantaloupe. There is also a faint creaminess about it, making it a bit softer, rounding out the edges on the fruitiness.
Amazing tea! Honestly, I’d be happy to just sit and savor the scent coming out of my cup, but it tastes even better than it smells.
There are many good flavored teas that I enjoy, but some just seem to be above them all. This is one of them.
