The description of this sounded pretty awesome: “Subtle notes of cocoa, leather, dried plum and wet earth”. On tasting, to me, it’s like a pine-smoked tea. I’d compare it to a pine-smoked tea more than any other tea. (And I’m a fan of pine-smoked tea!) It’s a great smokey flavor. It is a bit leathery, but silky smooth. Sometimes I just like strong tea. And I’ll be steeping for a longer time and at a higher temperature the second cup to get even more flavor out of it. Another amazing tea from Butiki! I could probably be satisfied with only drinking Butiki teas the rest of my life! But then again, so much tea, so little time! It’s overwhelming to think of all the fantastic tea companies like Butiki that I might miss! Try anything from Butiki. There is no way you’ll be disappointed! Butikiteas.com

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! I was bored one day and found out that most of them have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
40-65 – Okay
1-40 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
