drank Lemon French Macaron by Butiki Teas
649 tasting notes

Leave it to tea-sipper to both perplex me and brighten my day :)

First cup gone. Steep second for 5 minutes or so. After I pull the basket strainer from the cup, little oil blobs rise to the surface of the tea, burst and spread into iridescent splotches. When I take a sip, they disappear obviously into my mouth. Set the cup down, the blobs rise again. bloop.

By the way, this is stuff is really quite nice. Prettiest blend I’ve ever seen. Soft and flowery taste. It’s almost like a glazed lemon loaf. Probably the only Butiki tea I will ever get to try.

Flavors: Almond, Cake, Floral, Frosting, Hot hay, Lemongrass

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 3 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 10 OZ / 295 ML

I’m glad you liked it! I don’t know what the heck was with the oil though. I’m very sorry to all the tea fans who didn’t get to try many Butiki teas. I’m very grateful I knew about Butiki back when they were available… I’m still amazed at the Butiki magic after all these years.

It was surprisingly good with so many years behind it. I get the feeling it would’ve been more cookie/cake and straight lemon-tasting (I was getting lemongrass) when really fresh. Thanks so much for sharing a part of Steepster past with me <3

I love this one, one of my all-time Butiki faves. I only have one cup left and I don’t want it to go! ): I’m on a hunt to find something similar and haven’t even come close, so far.
