We just posted this Oriental Beauty on our website. It’s the first of 6 teas that we will be putting up tonight. I did the official tasting yesterday and today I’m getting some different notes, though that may be because I just had a huge amount of bruschetta. In addition to the honey and funnel cake notes, I’m also getting some lightly cooling mint, mushroom, and mineral notes. I love this Oriental Beauty. It took us a while to pick out just the right one and I think I might be partial to this one because it somewhat reminds me of our Taiwanese Wild Mountain Black that has been out of stock for a few months now. Ever since this one has arrived, I have been drinking it nonstop. I tend to go heavy on the leaf and even use boiling water. I prefer a slight astringency for this one.


Loved it, Stacy!

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.
