I’m so appreciative to all the people who have sent me Butiki samples, since I never actually got to place an order myself. I believe this one was from Kaylee, though it’s hard to keep track, as I’ve repackaged a lot of the samples I’ve received.
The dry leaf is so pretty. I love the contrast between the silvery green white tea and the bright, crumbly red of the strawberries. Just lovely. The smell of the dry leaf is pretty intensely strawberry and coconut.
Steeped, the sweet strawberry coconut notes become almost cloying and perfumey. The taste also has these notes, but it’s a much more delicate, smooth expression of strawberry and coconut, that mingles nicely with the hay and faintly vegetal notes of the white tea. The finish is quite sweet strawberry. The coconut gives this a lot of body and a bit of an oily mouth feel.
The flavour of this is really lovely, though the smell is a bit much for me. This sample is a sipdown and I’m okay with it being gone.
