drank Oriental Beauty by Butiki Teas

Received this as a sample in my order! :D

I accidentally made this rather potent. My measuring cup was in the wash, so I estimated eight ounces in my pot. (The pot’s a bit of an odd shape, which makes that hard) Turns out I gave it a little less than five. Good job me.

Still, even though it’s quite a bit stronger than it was supposed to be, it’s still fairly sweet and is obviously sweeter when better balanced with the amount of water.

Enjoying how fruity this is. :) I’ll have to try a second infusion with the proper amount of water.

Profile

Bio

Hello! I’m a 24 year old Canadian, currently working at Starbucks while I figure out what I want to do with myself in life, haha.

Like most everyone else, I grew up with teabags, and then discovered the grass really WAS greener on the other side with loose leaf. Nowadays I drink nearly exclusively loose, but will drink a bagged tea if I don’t care what I’m having.

My favorite kind of tea is black, and unflavored, although I do enjoy an occasional dessert black. I like whites second best. I’ve recently been dipping my toes into honeybush tisanes, greens and oolongs.

My favorite vendors are Butiki Teas and Verdant Teas. Both have fantastic teas, above and beyond customer service (especially Butiki), and fair prices for their very high quality teas. I can’t recommend them enough.

Purely for tasting notes references, I don’t use any additives for my teas. Older tasting notes for blacks was with milk+sugar, and then with just milk. Whites, oolongs, greens and herbals are all drunk straight unless otherwise specified in the notes.
