Thank you for the sample Stacy.

After reading everyone’s notes on this, I was really looking forward to it. I am sad to say that my experience was that it had absolutely no flavor at all. I added a tiny bit of honey and all I tasted was the tiny bit of honey.

So, I am leaving my rating off for now and will pick some up with my next order. I have loved all I’ve tried from Butiki Teas so far and am willing to try this again.

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 0 sec
Butiki Teas

Sandy-For this tea I tend to brew it almost twice as long as we recommend. I usually steep for 5 min 30 sec and I like the tea to be very dark in color. If you order again, let me know and I can throw this in as an extra sample in addition to your 2 choices.

I agree! Brew the socks off it. I don’t ever use honey (use agave, brown sugar crystals, splenda or sugar) …because honey overtakes the true flavor of the tea. (This is the general consensus) Love your willingness to try this again!

Thanks, Bonnie. I try to be judicious with my honey. I also use rock sugar and raw sugar. I just didn’t steep this one quite right.

Bonnie

Yup! Butiki is good! If you want to venture into puerh and oolongs and gauyusas, Butiki has good ones.
