Seriously, what does Stacy put in her tea? I cannot even describe this tea properly, but I loooooove it. The dry leaves look black like a black tea, but after steeping, you see that it’s definitely an oolong because the leaves range from olive green to light brown. It is oxidized to the level of a Bai Hao. Lovely golden liquor.

It is sweet and silky with just a little bit of astringency in the finish, but not enough to scare me away. I might try 3:30 and/or 165F next time.

Preparation
170 °F / 76 °C 4 min, 0 sec

You’re probably some covert Butiki employee; virtuoso pianist is just your cover. But you’ve convinced me anyway that it’s time for another Butiki order.

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!
