Butiki Educational Box #2
The dry leaves are long and curly and dark. That’s something I like about black teas, how pretty the dry leaves can be. After steeping, the leaves smell really nice, like rich dark chocolate. They’re all loosened up, but some are still curly. It’s really cool.
The aroma kind of reminds me of those dark chocolate orange slices. I don’t know why.
Flavor-wise, this tea is what I wish the Assam had been. It’s malty and a little creamy, and kind of…well, orange is all I can think of, mostly because of the aroma. It’s not really orange, though. I hate when I can’t describe what things taste like, but I know it’s pretty nice.
Probably not something I’d drink all the time, but I would drink it for sure if someone offered it to me.
I’m going to add a little milk to this one to see what it does that way because there’s something coming out in it as it cools that I don’t like as much.
Hmmm…it was okay, and it did cover up whatever it was that I didn’t like, but well, I think I liked it better without. Well, it was worth a try.
