drank Mi Xian Black by Butiki Teas
110 tasting notes

2 tsp in 8 oz

I hit the sweet spot for this today. No astringency but plenty of flavor. Still “drier” than Taiwanese Wild Mountain Black, but in my book, this runs a close second. Yum!

Just noticed that 8 of my 10 top rated teas are from Butiki. How did that happen? I only placed my first order from them like 7 weeks ago!

Profile

Bio

I happily reside in Park Slope, Brooklyn with my husband, our baby son, and our dog. I teach over 40 piano students per week at my home studio and created “Fundamental Keys”, a classical piano method book and video series.

My husband and I are vegan and have been for about 8 years. We are enjoying bringing up our little one in the vegan tradition!

I went through a major tea phase some years ago (2006-2009) and had quite a collection and tasted hundreds of varieties. Then I went off caffeine when I decided to have a baby, and after he was born I got into a nasty coffee habit. Now I’ve come back to tea, thank goodness. I’m finding my tastes have changed quite a bit since my first go at tea fanaticism. Really enjoying some of the amazing and deliciously complex teas I’ve learned about through Steepster!
