drank BUTTERFLY by Teaopia
10 tasting notes

I am a big fan of flowering teas, so I was pleasantly surprised to find that Teaopia sells a box of 8 for $5 (presumably because they need to change stock now that they’re owned by Teavana).

Anyway, this tea is gorgeous! It’s hand-rolled into a hard little ball, but when dropped into boiling water, it blooms into a delicate orange and pale yellow bouquet. (Now that I learned to keep the lid on the teapot while brewing, this took me all of 4 minutes.) The description says “lemon essence”, but I’m also picking up a bit of mint — perfect, really. It’s calming and energizing, and best of all, steepable up to 4 times (I’m on my second teapotful)!
