I received this sample from OMGsrsly – thank you very much (I’m sorry for what is to come – I do appreciate the opportunity).
I keep trying to like Butiki teas. Haven’t had any for quite awhile, and was hoping that my tastes have become refined enough to appreciate these teas. This is a tea I should just adore. Fruit flavored white, this should be right up my alley.
I still don’t get it. I measured really careful as per instructions on the tea page 2 tsp/cup. Set the kettle for 85C and the timer for 4.5 minutes.
This is bitter, grassy, with just the barest hint of watermelon way in the back – would not have said watermelon if I didn’t know what it was. I’m sorry this bad – really bad. I put in a bit of sugar trying to offset the bitter and bring out more of the fruit. Now I just have sweet, bitter, non existent watermelon. I know most of you just love this tea, and I would love to love it. I don’t and I don’t understand why.
