90
drank Oriental Beauty by Butiki Teas
293 tasting notes

I ordered 1/2 oz of oriental beauty as I wanted to test it before getting more.
This is TheTeaFairy’s note about it which made me want to try an oriental beauty tea and thanks for that, I’m seduced.

I am particularly happy with BT straight teas because until now I loved them all and this one is not an exception.
I adore how the honey notes and the fruity ones pairing so well together. I recognize some apricot (and I love so much apricot).

I should say that if all straight teas were the kind of this one ,PTA or TWM I would declare and shout on the roofs I definitively prefer straight teas to flavoured.
It may be my first step before passing on the other side of the tea mirror.

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 ?!?!?
