A very pretty tea with undertones of honey, soft lemon, toast and hay-like, golden, vegetal flavors. I don’t find it to be very buttery (more bright and honeyed), and certainly nothing like Butter Sencha’s intensely buttery, creamy sweetness. I think that Zomba Pearls has a toasty, delightful, hay-like taste to it. Pleasant and warming. I originally said I wouldn’t repurchase this, because I like Tie Kwan Yin for a bold, warm, toasty tea and Butter Sencha for a buttery, sweet tea, but I like Zomba Pearls for exactly when those two blends are too much. This has a bright, light, happy taste to it that’s just easy to enjoy. Tastes like sunshine and happiness.
