drank Maple Pecan Oolong by Butiki Teas
1994 tasting notes

I have wanted to try this one for a while and finally got a chance to thanks to a swap with KittyLovesTea. Honestly I’ve been sitting on this one for a while, and am just now getting around to trying it!

The scent of the dry leaf is certainly delectible… it smells like sweet sweet pecan pie. Brewed, the aroma is a little more subdued, lightly nutty and sweet. The flavor is also light, but quite well done. It’s one of those teas that doesn’t hit you over the head with its flavors, but instead suggests them to you, only to have them grow and develop in the aftertaste and over the course of the cup. The first major flavor is authentic maple, which then fades to a lightly fruity, oaky oolong. Then the nutty pecan flavor really blooms in the aftertaste, combined with maple to make the flavor of pecan pie filling.

Quite a tasty tea, and I’m very glad I got the chance to try it.

My husband, who isn’t a teaist (YET), and loves pecans adores this tea. I haven’t tried it yet, but it smells so nice when it’s brewing.

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-86: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
85-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
