Another Butiki sample! I don’t usually go for Darjeelings but this one sounded very intriguing. Of course it will, since it is from Butiki and they sell some special teas. The blend looks like a black tea with some green leaves mixed in.. which I don’t usually see in a black tea. I tried to follow Butiki’s steeping parameters and I waited for the water to cool a while, since the instructions say 190 degrees which seem a bit low for a black tea. This one has a VERY light color in the cup — it’s a very light yellow. I had to check if this was a black tea. The first thing I notice is the flavor is very smooth. It kind of smells like lemon before I even taste it, then it tastes like peaches. The lemon was more noticeable on the second steep. This one is a bit difficult to decipher. Maybe it is too mild for my palate. It’s definitely the lightest black tea I’ve tried and I definitely like my black teas tougher than this! Darjeelings aren’t really my thing but I wish I had more to say about this one. But this is probably my least favorite from the MANY I’ve been able to sample from Butiki, probably because Butiki blends are usually bursting with flavor.
