I haven’t had the best luck with Butiki straight greens, so I was pleasantly surprised when I took a sip and said “ooh!”
The first flavor I got was butter, followed by a rather grassy vegetal note, a light sweetness, and a wisp of bitterness. (Note: the tea had cooled for several minutes before my first taste, which may be why I didn’t pick up the harshness of other reviewers.) Aftertaste is reminiscent of steamed dark green leafy vegetables with a dryness and more noticeable (but still quite subtle) bitterness in the back of the throat.
Not one of my favorite green teas ever, but I will happily finish off the rest of the bag!
Flavors: Butter, Grass
