I’m really happy that the Butiki teas in this box are all unflavored ones that I haven’t tried. Awesome! These leaves are not curled into snails like I would expect, they’re loosely twisted. They’re very dark green in color, with some silvery bits. Their scent is quite mild, but a combination of vegetal and hay notes.
The brewed aroma is very spinachy and reminds me of a strong sencha or gyokuro. This is a very mild tea, and the flavors are lovely. It’s mostly vegetal, a combination of steamed spinach and butternut squash. Quite sweet and creamy and lovely! I find it quite similar to Laoshan Green, which I also like. Thanks to Stacy for providing this tea, I like it a lot. :)
