|"A sensual experience. Spicy enough for fall, mellow enough for every day, every season."|
“Buy anything you want! Everything must be alright because the world smells so good!"
I have always love tea, but this is the first blend that has transported me so. Here’s Butiki’s recipe for this moving mix: Organic Ceylon Black Tea, Organic Cinnamon Pieces, Pumpkin Flakes (vegan), Organic Nutmeg, Organic Natural Flavors (vegan).
The appearance of the product looked like it contained much less; basically, dark fannings laced with appetizing chunks of ...pumpkin? Creme Brulee? Both? Whatever those bits were, they dissolved when I poured boiling water over the leaves.
I steeped them for 3 minutes, during which time the aromas so intensified I could hardly wait to taste this concoction. When I did, I was not disappointed. The tea’s flavor was initially quite spicy, and then it turned mellow, floral, and vanilla, with a hint of cinnamon. On top of all that, the Ceylon tea flavor shone through it all, adding a satisfying astringency to the mix.
Butiki recommended adding sweetener to enhance the flavors, but I drank it black. I found it as creamy and sweet as a hot drink could ever be. It made me feel warm all over. I would drink this tea every day, every season. I rate it a 9.5.
