This is an interesting tea. However, it is too musty to begin with but if you add a small amount of honey (e.g. 1/4 tsb) it balances out quite well. If you add milk, you won’t taste much beyond the musty aroma and the milk. An ok tea when balanced out, but by itself not the greatest.

The company says that there is a marshmallow ‘accent’, but this is the musty aroma. When balanced out, it is pleasant with the soft floral notes,

Not my favourite from Mariage Freres. The Butterscotch flavour is artificial and is sickly sweet. Unlike other teas from this maker which have thick and rich mouthfeel, this is rather thin and watery even after adding full cream milk. Adding milk improves and flattens out the flavour but the artificial aroma and sickly sweet taste (which is almost metallic) remains. Would not recommend.

Flavors: Butterscotch, Caramel
