1184 Tasting Notes
I am not usually a fan of roses in tea. However, I am a fan of white tea, especially with cream elements. This is actually pretty good. I like it more than I expected to because the rose is not overpowering. It is more blended into the tea rather than over top of it if ya know what I mean.
I will have to think about how to rate this
First tasting note for this tea!
I really enjoy honeybush in blends, so I thought I would test it out. I enjoy it plain as well. Woodsy, with some honey and citrus notes.
I also bought it to tone down the caffeine in some blacks. For those days I really want a black but not all the caffeine. It will possibly also add some sweetness to whatever I add it to!
This tea is so fragrant and rich smelling
The taste is wonderful, woodsy, nutty, with light sweet creamy notes. I am not finding any cherry notes in this particular cup. I will pay closer attention with my next cuppa. It is amazing to me how whites sometimes have that creamy feel to them
Wonderful choice on a cold winter afternoon.
The large hairy silver needles are gorgeous…haha that sounds funny.
The most prominent notes are the malt and hay. Then this tea transforms into sweet, subtle, silky peach notes. The aroma is intoxicating.
There is something about white teas that I love in the afternoon, so calming an subtle. I need more whites!
Oh wow, why did I wait until now to order this? It is delicious. Malty, with chocolate notes, raisin notes. Soo good. I might “need” more of this on Black Friday, even though I already have quite a bit!
I really am enjoying all the straight blacks that I have ordered from Butiki. There are still more I need to try though, lol
Oh wow! This tea has gotten very rave reviews and I was worried that I would be disappointed, but there was no need to be! This tea lives up to every rave review.
It smells divine, it’s hard to describe. Fruity and honey.
The leaves are beautiful and long.
The taste is delicious. Sweet waffle cones and a slight fruity note, but I am not sure that I would have said raisin. In later steeps, I get slight caramel notes.
This tea is so different than all other blacks. I have a feeling this one is going to be restocked frequently in my cupboard.
Thank you to Angel at Teavivre for this sample
I wasn’t sure what osmanthus was but I imagined it being something like jasmine. Well, it isn’t. It is sweeter but also more bitter at the same time. I don’t know if I am the only one getting that note.
The oolong is very green an vegetal.
Resteep 5 minutes
I enjoyed this sample, but I think I will keep jasmine as my number one floral choice.
