This is a sample kindly sent by Sil
I can taste a medium astringency I often have with assams even if I have only steeped this blend 3 minutes.But it is tolerable. I get the astringency from the first sip until the very last.
I get pleasant malty and robust notes with this tea as well.

Not my favourite but not bad despite the astringency

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

i should send you some of the teas from taiwan tea crafts one of these days.

how are they ? I normally love all the unflavoured BT but this one was just different for me !

Butiki Teas

Ysaurella-This one wasn’t part of our tea line. We received this by mistake and got it for free. We then gave it out as a bonus for customers who purchased our tippy golden Assam. This one wasn’t up to our standards but made a nice bonus gift.

I know Stacy, I think it can really be appreciated because it is really a very decent tea but it is just not for my taste.

Butiki Teas

That’s how I feel about it too. I tried it once and well it wasn’t bad but there was nothing that made me want to add it to our line or make another cup of it.

Yeppers! Nice to have, nice to share, but nothing to keep around permanently heh

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 ?!?!?
