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!

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
