My first note on this, and it is a sipdown!
This wasn’t bad and I see nearly everyone else loved it. I don’t hate it, but it was the least favorite among the 3 Leaf Teas I have on hand. The reason is butyric acid. Sometimes I can smell it so strongly. It doesn’t come through in the taste. I used this almost exclusively in smoothies so it could blend in with the fruit there.
Butyric acid smells like vomit, and it is in a lot of “natural” flavoring because it occurs naturally in these food in small amounts. I smell it in Lupicia’s Strawberry Black and Fraisier, but not in Carol or Merci Milles Fois. There are other examples, can’t think of them right now, but that aroma was in this tea for me.
Don’t be afraid of this, though. It tastes good, even though the smell made me throw away the first latte I made with it thinking the milk was spoiled!
