drank Lemon French Macaron by Butiki Teas
1549 tasting notes

I found half a serving left of this tea hidden in a back part of my tea cupboard where I usually store empty tins! I decided to steep a cup of Fusion Tea’s Lemon Meringue to compare it to, which has been the closest match I’ve found so far. The Butiki is a little dusty tasting, which is too be expected with it’s age, but it also has that light baked lemon… almost lemongrass and marshmallow creamy taste to it. The more frequently I sip the less I notice the dusty flavor and the sooner the lemon comes out, lingering long into the finish.
The Fusion has a much sharper greener scent to it, unlike the cloud like ethereal Butiki blend. The sharpness comes through in the flavor, but it also has some of that marshmallow like creaminess as well. There is something tangibly sweeter in the Fusion blend. They are very similar and it’s hard to truly compare a blend that is years old to one that is fresh and new. I love the Butiki blend more, but the Fusion is a decent replacement. I do wonder if adding cream flavoring or marshmallow root or almond would make it a closer match.

Bio

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan, but have had a growing appreciation for plain. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! And no hibiscus. Hibiscus is the devil.
