I’ve been drinking only my new Butikis this weekend, and they’ve been so motivational in getting me through the copious amounts of school work I have.

This one is so dark and smooth. I don’t usually drink straight black teas, but perhaps I will start. Why not, right? I can definitely taste that natural honey sweetness. I love that. I can actually see how it is similar to Gui Fei Oolong, which is still my very favourite oolong. I do believe I’m also tasting just the faintest hint of caramel in the background, and truly is does all come together to be almost pastry-like.

I will definitely be enjoying subsequent steeps of this as I work away at a few different projects and exam preparations this afternoon.

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), travel, science, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not always in the mood for them. Greens and pu’erhs I’m working on, but they’re coming along at a snail’s pace. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino). Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true chocolate flavour), rhubarb, to be continued…

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss, to be continued…
