So this is Sample #3 from Chuckie, as you can see I am having an uneventful day of work that has been pretty much compromised of doing some paperwork and drinking lots of tea, relaxing but slightly boring, so why not spice things up by trying a bunch of new teas.
This is the first tea I have had from Butiki and I must say wow, I could tell from the dry aroma that this was going to be a flavorful tea, and it certainly is. Dry it has an amazingly creamy cantaloupe smell very pronounced by not artificial or overpowering.
Steeped the aroma of the tea is cut back slightly, but in all honesty it is a very slight amount. It is an extremely clear brew with a slight golden color to it. It has an amazing cantaloupe smell to it that reminds me of a brunch buffet or something with a huge platter of fruits.
I certainly approve of this tea, I look forward to trying some of their other blends. For me this would be a great tea to have with breakfast, and as with the previous Teavana tea I reviewed it would probably be pretty good iced.
Edit: Had to increase my rating on this, tasted great warm. Got caught up doing some work and it cooled off and I think it tastes even better! scored 85, totally raising it to 100. Probably be one of the first I order from Butiki.
