I’m finding that I like toffee and butterscotch better with white bases then black. They’re kind of buttery and almost too delicate to go that way. I think the base in this is slightly buttery and just a little creamy. I really like the slightly spicy cinnamon notes floating in here too. Yum.

This sounds decadent!

From the Great Canadian TTB.

I made this one to take shopping. I was not Black Friday shopping, I had a few things to pick up for tomorrow, but I got caught in the Black Friday hoards. However, I forgot it on the counter at home. So now I am drinking it about 2.5 hours later.

This one managed to still be luke warm by the time I got home, which is pretty good. I expected it to be stone cold. It definitely tastes like butterscotch. I was a bit disappointed though. I was hoping for a bit creamier taste. This was definitely butterscotch but more on the sharp side. It reminds me of those old school butterscotch candies that are caramel coloured but still clear (if that makes sense). This one definitely has some good flavour to it.

I was very excited for the new Persimmon Tree teas to come out (and try!) and Butterscotch looked the coolest of the new line up!

The white tea base is nice, adding lightness to the butterscotch buttery smokey flavor. The tea has a nice, savory end with a bit of spice. Sweetened, Butterscotch becomes more like liquid candy!

Aww, the twig was meant for Owlbear.

I was already snapping photos with Owlbear, then I found the stick in the tin – it turned out well!

Butterscotch from The Persimmon Tree is really a good interesting tea blend. It seems to be more on the scotch side than the butter. For a candy inspired tea it really is not that sweet, or candy like. I get a strong scotch flavor in the blend, as in the alcohol.

The mouthfeel is medium heavy and the cup color is a nice clear light brown. I have also had this tea cold and it keeps its flavor profile quite nicely. A lot of teas taste different when hot versus cold, but this is the same either way.

Adding some sweetener, I used German Rock Sugar, does help bring out the candy like flavor in the tea, more like those golden yellow butterscotch candies you can get at the dime store. Even still I get a heavy scotch flavor from the tea mostly.

There is a creamy or buttery like mouthfeel to a degree, but not so much on the butter flavor. I personally would like it to be a bit more candy like but that is just a personal preference. To be honest, I think more people will appreciate this tea for its pure and direct flavor. It is not another overly sweetened, overly flavored, fake candy tea. It is absolutely a fresh and organic blend which I appreciate even if my taste buds would like it to be a bit sweeter.

Persimmon Tree Tea really does tea well when it comes to offering all natural and organic ingredients! Check out more about what The Persimmon Tree does for our world here. http://www.persimmontreetea.com/about-us

So today was an odd day as I was in the hospital for the majority of it (migraines are so much fun). I came home after a long rush hour drive and just wanted something yummy and warm. This was perfect, and I even finished off the sample sachet from my first order with Persimmon Tree. I suppose you could call this a sipdown, but as 1 ounce is on its way, it’s kinda wrong to claim it.

I got to try some of this courtesy of Moraiwe! Thanks!

This tea smells like a butterscotch candle! When I sip, first thing I taste is a light cinnamon that fades into a smooth butterscotch. It has an almost light floral aspect to it and the aftertaste is lovely! It is fantastic with a bit of sugar. Each sip is a little more harsh at the beginning, but quickly smooths down by mid sip. I can’t usually pick out the tea in white based tea and this tea holds true to that. It is really an interesting tea and the first I have tried from Persimmon Tree. I’m glad I have another serving or two of this because I’m teetering on if it should be on my shopping list or not!

They do pretty good deals on samples on their website, I did a 5 for $5 white tea sample pack and got this one and a few others. They were all pretty nice!! The coconut creme was my fave :)

Thanks for sending me this Moraiwe! I really like this one! I’m a big fan of white teas, and butterscotch isn’t something I would have normally picked out for myself, but I’m really enjoying this. I have been debating on ordering from the Persimmon Tree for a while now, so this experience might persuade me to do so :)

This is another one from the travelling tea box I received in the mail today. I found the flavour a little too strong, but it did taste like butterscotch. Even though this was pleasant enough, I would not order it.

I’ve had this at least three times but it seems I’ve never logged it. I got a small sample of this from Persimmon and it’s quite nice. There is a creamy sweetness to this white tea. Sometimes it seems like it might be too faint, but actually it’s perfect. It’s a satisfying subtle flavor. I wouldn’t change it by adding sugar. I’m almost done with my sample and this might end up being a buy-again tea. It resteeps nicely as well.

I really like the look of the dry leaf. White tea I usually find pretty anyway. This one adds yellow marigold petals and pink peppercorns. It is really lovely. The dry aroma is alcohol. I read other’s reviews and some made a ‘scotch’ connection. While hot the taste is much like the dry aroma. I was expecting pie or at least candy, so I am not sure exactly how I feel about it. I had to take my son to pick up his car at the mechanics mid cup. When I returned it was cold. I actually preferred it cold. I could better taste the scotch and the white tea. In addition it took on more of a creamy feel. The aftertaste resembles more of what I consider to be butterscotch.

It is an interesting tea with potential. I just need to tinker and find how to prepare it to suit my tastes.

Mmmm! You had me at marigolds. Love yellow flowers in my tea.

I get a whiskey, alcohol type connection to some teas that are flavored. I think its because some caramel or butterscotch type flavorings remind me of the caramel colorings used in some alcohols i’m sensitive to it and can actually taste the colorings in alcohols.

K S

All the ingredients on this and most of TPT teas are organic. I think a shorter steep is the answer – assuming you don’t want a strong alcohol taste.

Thomas Edward(Toad)

right not this one cuz i havent had it before :) i was just meaning i get that alcohol whiskey note from some that are flavored with flavorings. this one sounds pretty good.

K S

I understand, I had a longer response but I cut part of because I was afraid it came off insulting sounding which I do not intend. It went something like this – Some days I catch faint whispers of flavor that a lot of people don’t notice – which is why I love white teas I suppose – but man being so sensitive you can taste the coloring could get real annoying real fast unless you liked those notes. I liked the alcohol taste here but wouldn’t crave it often. I’m still working to see if I can tone it done to get the candy flavor I do crave.

Thomas Edward(Toad)

right on! ya i likes the alcohol notes but i don’t think i’d want it that often either, rather have the real deal if i’m craving :)

K S

haha. Those days are way behind me. I need all the brain cells I can muster.
