drank Congou Keemun by Butiki Teas
3007 tasting notes

Here is a sample I got from Stacy, who is awesome, at Butiki. Thanks Stacy!

This is very different from the other teas I have been drinking.
The dry leaf had a fruity & floral aroma.
The tea itself has an amazing array of flavors:
Initially I’m hit by a ‘perfume’, of sorts. It’s a floral, but not orchid, rose, or any of the floral tastes & smells that I recognize. It has an incense quality to it, & then there is a deep fruity flavor as well. It’s very earthy, a little malty.
Not my cup of tea, but an interesting experience, none the less.

I LOVE this tea…funny that you and I depart on this one.
I found out that Congou is more desireable because the leaves are the 5th row down, larger and harder to pick. They do have a fruity taste like having a glass of fine wine.
I love that! It’s my favorite right now from Butiki!

Bio

I’m so excited to have found this community! I’m a self-employed Harpist (acoustic & electric – Originals, Classical, Rock, Jazz, etc) & Singer/Songwriter. My days & nights revolve around teaching at home, playing gigs, gardening,& fixing awesome food to eat. My schedule is different everyday, but I just go with the flow, & I sip a lot of tea!

My love of Tea began with Herbals back in the 70’s. One of my favorites was a licorice blend from House of Hezekiah, an old tea shop in Kansas City. There was also a tea with mint, rose petals, chamomile, etc called Nuclear Casual Tea.
In the 80’s I gave up caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, (& a few illicit substances…), and brewed medicinal blends & tinctures to support 4 pregnancies (all children born at home). In the 90’s my love affair with green teas began when I discovered ‘The Republic of Tea’. Their beautiful teas & packaging inspired my original song, “TeaMind”, from my CD “Zen Breakfast”. If you’d like to hear the song for free, drop by my website.

In general, I drink my teas straight, but occasionally I add a pinch of Stevia & maybe some coconut or almond milk (I’m allergic to dairy, gluten, & various other things & avoid most sweets.)

I’ve explored a variety of teas:
Whites tend to be a little bland…sorry
Oolongs – wonderfully sensual
Roobios – I’m not a fan in general
Puehr – a fairly new direction for me
I’m not a huge fan of flavored teas, but I do make exceptions, & I’ll try just about anything once.

And Black Tea, Oh how I love thee!!
I am on a quest for the most wonderful breakfast cup! I will find you, my Love!
