drank Ruby Pie by Butiki Teas
518 tasting notes

I’m drinking this before running off to an appointment. My mom decided she wanted a cup too, although she chose to add milk. Not sure how that worked out for her yet.

Edit: I think she liked it a lot, and seemed genuinely disappointed when I told her there wasn’t much left. I might have to order more from her when the cupboards empty out a bit.

This one is starting to grow on me. The smooth vanilla notes are really coming out today, and make a really convincing pie crust. The tartness is at the perfect level too. The lingering aftertaste makes for a very convincing strawberry rhubarb.

I started my Steepster loose leaf adventure back in 2012. I can’t say I’m completely new anymore, but I still view oolong as a magical, extraterrestrial creature that unfurls in water.

Tea Preferences: My absolute favourites are the floral inclined oolong and white teas. I also enjoy unflavoured green teas, as well as some black teas (flavoured, unflavoured, Indian, Chinese, etc). Puerh is a hit or miss.

Fruit, cedar, anise, and vanilla are good. Black licorice, bergamot, and cheap chocolate are less good. Jasmine, cinnamon, and hibiscus are usually too strong in teas for my taste, but I otherwise like these flavours!


95-100: A Personal Favourite; I’m never without this tea.

90-94: Great! I’ll try to keep a small amount around.

80-89: Enjoyable; I may buy more at some point.

70-79: Nice, but not something I’d drink often. I may have a few problems with it.

50-69: Something about this tea falls flat for me. Still drinkable.

30-49: This isn’t a particularly pleasant cup.

1-29: There’s no way to put it nicely..
