I have heard so much about this unusual flavored tea on Steepster that I just had to give it a try myself. My boyfriend was particularly excited to try this one too because he loves potato pancakes. To be honest, I don't think I've ever eaten one but I do love applesauce. I was a bit worried about the taste because the liquor was very pale. It looked like it there would be no taste at and at first, that is exactly what it tasted like. Then it hit me like the Everlasting Gobstopper scene in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. First it was starchy followed by a cinnamon sweetness that was undeniably potato pancakes and applesauce. I have no idea how she did it but to make the story short, +Stacy Lim is nothing short of a tea Willy Wonka. I'm curious to try adding a touch of sugar or even salt as the product description on Butiki Teas' website recommends. This is one tea that I will definitely be returning to.
