Thank you so much Sil for sharing this tea with me !
It was a long time I wanted to have it and you made my wish comes true.
I love the Butiki creations on flavoured teas and wanted to taste as well the unflavoured ones.

As you imagine the shipping costs from Usa to Europe don’t allow me to place an order as often as I wish so I need to be sure I love the teas before ordering.
I can say Mi Xian Black is a tea I really love : smooth and present, almost creamy with fruity notes evocating dried apricot to me.

The dry leaves are very very long, impressive, shining and dark-very beautiful.
However it resteeps very well.

Tried it both with brown crystal sugar and after without any sweetener and both ways are gorgeous.

Thanks again Sil and thanks Stacy !

Bio

First, please forgive me for my English and all the grammatical mistakes you’ll find in my posts.
As English isn’t my mother tongue it sometimes makes things more difficult to express cleverly and accurately what I feel.

I was mainly in black flavoured teas, green as well if not bitter.
I’m now drinking much straight teas because my palate is now developed enough to appreciate them .

My favourite brands are : Mariage Frères,Theodor,Butiki Teas,Dammann Frères, Betjeman & Barton.
My ratings are as follow :

100 to 95 : my darlings; always in my cupboard

94 to 90 : Excellent tea, often in my cupboard

89 to 80 : very good tea, a pleasure to drink it

79 to 70: not bad even nice, why not having it sometimes, but well, not so urgent !

69 to 50 : Meh, deceptive or just not for me – but has some qualities

49 to 30 : I just don’t appreciate it

Under 30 : is this tea ?!?!?
