This unique tea was sent to me by Mastress Alita. It’s definitely strong! I first tried it with just sugar, and got a strong taste of rooibos followed by black tea with a whisper of butterscotch underneath. I immediately added milk, and wow that really brought it all together. It tastes caramely and butterscotchy, and you can’t taste the rooibos anymore, it just supports the other flavors. There’s no bitterness. This one is very, very good. I would drink this all the time if I had more!

It’s the best thing ever as a latte.

I looked up the Etsy shop, and the prices are slightly intimidating for the sizes you get, but I may have to place an order sometime. I love making teas into lattes!

I considered ordering from them after seeing Mastress Alita’s glowing review, but the prices are quite steep. I also saw several Adagio teas in the ingredients list which gave me pause as I don’t generally like Adagio’s blends.

Mastress Alita

The Etsy shop is an original small-batch blender, not an Adagio reseller. I’ve actually tried ordering Adagio blends trying to “mimick” this one to get a better price and they are awful in comparison.

Cameron B.

I didn’t mean to imply they just resell Adagio teas, but they do use at least some in their blending as there are Adagio teas listed by name in some ingredients lists (Yunnan Jig, Wuyi Ensemble, Puerh Dante).

I’m not trying to discourage anyone else from ordering, I was just explaining why I hadn’t. :)

Mastress Alita

I have not seen a single one of their listings list any of those ingredients…

Trick or Treat! I bought this tea a year ago when I was doing a Harry Potter theme for my old tea blog, and I’ve had this tea stashed away in my cupboard since then, to savor on supposed “special occassions,” like the way a grandmother stashes away her good china for “special occassions.” Eh, it fits the month’s theme, so that seems special enough to me…

Honestly, sipping on this again now, I remember why I’ve been so sparing with this one… it is just so good. I’ve tried other “butterbeer” teas, trying to find something that has a match in taste but isn’t so expensive for the leaf as this particular Etsy seller, but I just can’t find anything that compares to this! It’s like liquid caramel syrup. The caramel flavor is sooooooo rich and decadent, I have no idea exactly what flavoring and in what quantity this Etsy blender is using, but it is perfect. This tea is a blend of black and rooibos, and I find those can be really finicky, but this one just works. It has body and a bit of boldness, but at the same time is more sweet and honeyed without so much harshness or astringent bite. And did I mention it is just so full of caramel goodness? Waaaaaah! My favorite way to drink this is to make a stronger infusion (which actually would be a bit on the bitter side to drink plain, but it is over-leafed a bit!) and then add a bit of warm vanilla almond milk and then whisk it together (typically 1/4 part milk and 3/4 parts tea), and it just makes it absolutely divine; the caramel shines through nicely, the vanilla notes in the milk make it taste extra butterscotchy, and it becomes so thick, rich, frothy, creamy, and sweet!

Wow, you’re not kidding. That seller is so expensive… :(

Mastress Alita

Ya, a lot of made-to-order small batch blenders can be. I’ve sampled several teas by that seller and enjoyed a few others, but this is the only one I bother to restock.

Cameron B.

Not to mention, it’s weird that they don’t actually tell you the weight of tea you’re buying. :P

derk

For some reason, I really don’t like caramel flavor in tea but omg, now I want to make butterscotch pudding and have it with a strong black.
