Taster’s Review:

OH… this Royal Golden Safari black tea from Butiki Teas is absolutely divine!

There is a prominent note of cocoa with a delightful undertone of caramel that dances on the tongue.  And yes, the description does not lie:  I also taste warm, toasty walnut and a delicious fruity undertone.  I also taste notes of spice and oak.

The cup is sweet and so wonderfully complex.  I love that with each sip I notice something different.  The spiced notes I mentioned before are not what I’d call “spicy” but instead, it’s sort of a gentle warmth that you might liken to the flavor of a sweet potato that has been lightly seasoned with cinnamon.  It doesn’t taste  of a distinct spice, just that warm sort of flavor that is comforting and cozy.

It comes as no surprise that this would be a really delicious tea – after all, Butiki Teas continually impresses me with their outstanding quality and exceptional tasting tea.  This tea is no different – the flavor is amazing and the quality is second to none.  They are definitely one of my favorite tea companies for this reason.  I highly recommend this one if you’ve not tried it yet!
