Sipdown! (5 | 5)
Got this one with a reward. I’m always trying to figure out what to spend my DT rewards on, since their teas aren’t really my jam. But I buy teaware there often, so I always have a few rewards that I can only use on tea. Anyway… This time it was this tea and Butterfly Jasmine that I chose to try.
It’s a very nice fuzzy, golden, bud-heavy Yunnan tea with oodles of trichomes. It has a very thick and satisfying texture, and lovely rich and malty sweet potato notes. There’s also a honeyed sweetness and juicy apricot, but then some contrasting savory potato notes that remind me of French fries.
Very nice tea for sure, I’m not sure I would pay $20 or whatever for 50 grams, but getting it for “free” is hard to beat ha ha. Looks like it’s no longer on the website though, as it was a limited edition.
