drank Spicy Mint Oolong by Butiki Teas
1603 tasting notes

Butiki Teas seems to have a talent for making flavoured oolongs and they work with green oolongs rather than the dark ones as their bases with is unusual. This one tastes like it might be an ali shan given its subtly sweet lilac notes. The mint flavouring is fresh and crisp and provides a counterpoint to the sweetness and there’s a hint of spicy that reminds me of pepper without the heat. Very unique – I’m not sure I love this tea but it gets points for creativity.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
