This tea may just be my favourite tea yet. I don’t generally gravitate to green teas, and if it hadn’t been for getting a free 25g bag at a special event in my store, I would have just passed it by. On first smell, this tea smells buttery and a bit floral, but it is the buttery scent that really stands out. This tea brews up to a pale green/yellow and the buttery scent remains along with the grassy green tea scent. First taste….oh my, this tea is light, slightly earthy and definitely creamy/buttery. It is just SO good. If you are familiar with butter sencha and enjoyed it, then you will enjoy this. In fact, I would say it has more of a true butter taste than butter sencha did. The valerian root and green tea is an interesting combo and I don’t find myself getting overly stimulated by this tea, in fact I usually drink it at night. It doesn’t make me sleepy either, but rather just soothed and calm. I’ve since purchased 300g with plans for another 500 or so before it is discontinued.
Flavors: Butter, Floral
