drank Oriental Beauty by Butiki Teas
740 tasting notes

This is a nice oolong. It’s smooth and ultimately relaxing. I am getting a touch of a mineral taste, but nothing offensive by any means. I can smell the honey notes more than I can taste them, but nonetheless, I am enjoying my cup. Hopefully a few resteeps to come over the rest of the afternoon.

I ordered so many oolongs from Butiki in my most recent order, and they are all delicious in their own way, but I’ve secretly been comparing them to Gui Fei, and I think that will always be my oolong. It’s just so unique.

Bio

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

That’s my mug!

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 generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs, rooibos (specifically red, I’m more open to green), honeybush, and matés are not my favourite. I tend to avoid them altogether unless others find them so amazing it would be a travesty to not at least try.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true dark chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
