oh crap I just copied and pasted an my entire review disappeared. Anyway, this is my 600th tasting note! I can’t believe it… I swear my 500th tasting note was just a couple weeks ago. It seems the more tea I drink, the more I love tea… but I probably said something similar with my 500th note.

I couldn’t wait to try this one as I have been reading so many amazing tasting notes for this one! thank you so much Butiki! Every tea I’ve tried from Butiki has been the best of the best (so every “th” tasting note should be celebrated with a Butiki tea!) The long, black, twisty leaves here have a bready aroma. After a four minute steep, the brew color is a gorgeous deep amber in my clear mug and the flavor is so so good. It seems medium bodied yet the flavor is complex. Bakey, bready, sweet, a bit malty & chocolatey. It’s tough to describe, but it has something very unique about it. A must try!

Also: I swear there was a bit of a strawberry flavor, but I was worried when I smelled the strawberry from the other Butiki tea sample that it was mailed with that it may have contaminated the other teas… even though I stored that one separate as soon as I got them. But maybe this one naturally has a hint of berry? I just noticed Butiki’s description says “fruity”! Or maybe I really should be drinking my samples in plastic baggies faster than others!

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!
