This sample came to me from Stephanie, who was very generous to include it in our swap!
Given that it actually purports to feel somewhat like spring out today, I’m glad I started off the day with such a fresh tea. I added a bit of rock sugar, and this helped subdue the ginger notes, which I must admit I was a little afraid of (tasting the ginger, I mean). I could definitely taste the strawberry, which instantly reminded me of Ruby Pie. Unfortunately, because ruby pie is my gold standard for strawberry in tea, I just kept comparing these two teas in my head, even though I know they’re not even all that similar. I could taste a bit of the toffee, and actually liked the fresh green base on which the sip ended. I have enough left to have another cup, and will gladly drink that down, but this likely won’t be stocked (again, thank heavens, as I’m in the process of building my Butiki order, and it’s already nuts haha).
Thanks again, Stephanie! I’d been wanting to try this tea for a while now!
