Got a sample of this in my latest Butiki order!
I was very diligent about taking the tea ball infuser out of the water early, because I know that Assam can become astringent very quickly.
I can smell an earthy, woodsy, nutty scent mingling with the caramel and vanilla.
Sipping… It’s very smooth, with just the right bite of bitter from the Assam base. This is the first caramel tea I’ve tried that actually tastes like caramel. I think the Assam base works really well with the caramel, and the vanilla rounds the whole thing out quite nicely.
This is delicious, Stacy! Thanks so much for the sample.
Flavors: Caramel, Earth, Nuts, Vanilla, Wood
