Hooray! Got this as a sample from my Butiki order. :D First order from Butiki in about three months. How I missed seeing a Butiki in the mailbox each month.
Anyway, this one is quite interesting. :) I mainly get rhubarb, and then a small bite from the hops. Creamy vanilla sweetens the sips, and then I get an almost toasted coconut flavor? The most interesting part though is the mouthfeel after the swallow. There’s an almost sparkle, or feeling like I’d just had something fizzy but without the burning going down the throat like a soda or something.
This is quite good. :) I do find the Keemun is pretty overshadowed, making this quite a sweet tea, but it is there as a hint in the background. I still get that slightly earthy flavor from it, so it’s definitely there.
Yummy~ I find vanilla (as well as rhubarb and strawberry) flavors are done SO well in Butiki teas~ Whenever I see vanilla in the description, I have to try it, haha. I’ve never had a vanilla-flavored tea that comes even remotely close to the richness that Stacy manages in her teas.
All in all this is really really unique. :)
