I am surprised that there are no tasting notes on this for me, as I know I’ve had it before, because I even wrote a review for it last year. Here’s the link to that review, if you’d like to take a look: http://sororiteasisters.com/2011/03/10/keemun-finest-chuen-cha-from-butiki-teas/

My thoughts today are very similar to what I thought back then: This is really delicious. Sweet, but not overly so. I am noticing more of the dried plum notes today than I remember from it in the past. The first few sips were smoky, but after a while it tapered and became more of that charcoal-y note that I mentioned in the above review.

Another lovely tea from Butiki!


in the aftertaste (long aftertaste) I taste a note of pepper. Very nice, this tea.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.


I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.


Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
