Today I used a touch more leaf but pretty much the same steeping parameters… it turned out different, but good! People sometimes talk about a waffle note with Butiki’s Taiwanese Wild Mountain Black, and I have to admit I have never tasted waffles in that tea. But perhaps that put an idea in my head because this totally tasted waffley. For sure less fruit, and somewhat less caramel. But now a baked, doughy flavor that does remind me of waffles. This is definitely an interesting tea and definitely my favorite black tea from this company.

You’re the second person I’ve seen that said this was their favorite. I’ve only tried the Red Jade – might have to make this my work tea for tomorrow.

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.
89-85: 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
84-80: 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.
