Butiki sent me a sample to try — thank you! Oh wow… this one is luxurious! There are definite flavors of maple and pecan here. It’s just like maple syrup with pecans! I’d say the pecan and maple flavors are equally present. There are huge chunks of pecan in this blend! The oolong leaves are black, wiry, twisty — I haven’t seen an oolong like this yet. I think it’s a nice base for the flavors. It doesn’t have a typical floral taste of an oolong that might otherwise taste terrible with maple or pecan. This type of oolong lets the flavors shine. There is also a slight flavor of dates or something similar.. and also something bakey! I wish I could have tried this type of oolong unflavored, to see how it is contributing to the flavors. Perfect with Thanksgiving in a couple days… it has me looking forward to all that pecan pie I’ll be having!

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!
