Fine grain; almost but not quite CTC. Soft fruity aroma with hints of stone fruit and spice. Tastes of tar, with hints of fruit and spice. Quite complex; becomes somewhat bitter at the end. An interesting tea that might serve as a strong breakfast tea. I liked the complexity, but not the bitterness. Adding nutrasweet seemed to bring out the fruit, but didn’t really cover the bitterness.

From the Butiki TTB2.

It’s actually purple! My brain thought I was going to drink lavender tea instead. The liquor is full-bodied and clear, and at first savory. After some time, when the liquor cools, the fruit really comes through and leaves sweet aftertaste. I brewed two cups but didn’t get the same effect for the second (besides the aftertaste). Once at five or six minutes might have been enough – I still need to get a hold of my personal taste for this kind of tea.

I do recommend this one for those who are curious. It’s delicious, but it’s not something I’d want to drink often, mainly because, I suppose, I still taste the weirdness underneath the fruit. It was a change from what I usually have. I’m glad Stacey convinced me to give it a go.
