I have finally found a tea to rival Butiki’s Creamy Eggnog, and for a while I genuinely believed this day would never come. I should probably also add that I had this one pegged as a green tea initially (at least until I tried it) – probably I was thinking of Butiki’s blend instead. This one is actually a white.
Brewed, it’s super creamy with a delicious custard flavour. It’s not artificial or overpowering, but simply perfect. I get cake flavour mostly toward the end of the sip, but it lingers well into the aftertaste. There’s a hint of nutmeg, but really not very much – given how beautiful this one is, though, I can’t say I mind.
The leaf is also a thing worth looking at, with it’s snowflake sprinkles, yellow marigold petals, pieces of cinnamon stick, and actually green white tea leaves. It’s so rare for flavour and presentation to come together so well, that I think it’s worth noting when it does happen.
I’m seriously impressed with the teas I’ve tried from AQTT. I feel another order coming on, maybe as soon as this weekend…
