Oh wow I like this tea.
I’m really glad I bought it, and I might try to throw another order Butiki’s way before the store retires. This is a solid oolong base. The brewing instructions scared me a bit, as four minutes seemed like a long time. However I followed the brewing instructions. I’m glad I did.
Anyway, the tea. The individual leaves are beautifully rolled, and they opened up and expanded wonderfully. The liquor of the tea is light, honey colored.
The tea is sweet, and I get strong notes of honey. The tamarind is just there, a light tropical note. I assume the honey taste is also a result of the tamarind.
Anyway, this is a great cup of tea. I’m very excited about steeping this a second time. It’s really lovely.
