drank Mi Xian Black by Butiki Teas
54 tasting notes

I have a guilty little confession about this tea. I love it! I love it so much that I really acquired it more for myself rather than because it filled a hole in our tea selection. This is my reward tea. Whenever I am feeling down or when I accomplish something big, I allow myself to indulge in a few cups of this wonderful tea.

The dried leaf aroma is strong with honey and plums and the leaves are thin, long, and wiry with a rich charcoal and mahogany color. The steeped leaves are more mahogany in color and range from a medium to dark brown. The wet leaves smell woody and sweet with a honey scent and now a peach aroma as well. As I open the leaves, I can see some little ridges from where the leafhoppers were allowed to nibble. This nibbling causes the plant to initiate its healing process making the leaves taste sweet like honey. The liquor is a dark amber color and produces an aroma of honey and wet wood. When I take my first sip, peach and honey notes first hit my tongue and mingle and linger. Then citrus notes and lychee notes become prominent and linger. A smooth and creamy mouth feel make this cup very enjoyable for me. I used 2 teaspoons of tea this time; however, I think I enjoy this a little more with just 1 ½ teaspoons of tea for 8oz of water. Either way, this is a delicious cup of tea.

tigress_al-I can slip a sample in your package. Haven’t run out to the post office yet. FYI, I think this is the last day this tea is on sale, though knowing me I probably won’t take the sale down for a few more days.

I tried to order some. PayPal kept telling me my session was timed out….

Butiki Teas

Charles-Hmmm, not sure what the problem is. I just tested PayPal and it seems to work fine from here. I will give them a call tomorrow. If it is easy for you, you can always send me a list of what you would like to order and I can send you a PayPal invoice ([email protected]). Also, I’ve had timing out issues specifically with PayPal in the past and have had to shut down my browser and restart my modem and router. Have you tried that?

Charles Thomas Draper

I will try again today….

Bio

My taste for tea started at an early age. As a child, I would frequently enjoy a cup of tea with my family. Tea has always been a significant part of my life, through all the challenges and all the accomplishments and celebrations. Naturally, I became interested in the variety of high quality teas and the very culture that encompasses tea. Today, I want to share my passion and love of tea through Butiki Teas.
