The best black teas on earth...

I just checked out the ratings on black teas here on Steepster, and out of the top 7 teas, 3 are from Butiki, and 4 are from Verdant. Well, at least there’s some consensus! It’s pretty amazing…

Which one if your personal favorite?

I haven’t tried the Verdant ones yet, but I have tried the 3 from Butiki, and I like them all, but I truly love the Taiwanese Wild Mountain Black. I would drink it twice a day, every day, if I could.

Sounds dee-lish!

I will give those a try next, I am still drinking through my last pu-erh (puer?) samples.

I added the Taiwan Wild Mountain to my shopping list

Next, black tea!

Great! Hope you like!

Are you new to tea?

Oh, and by the way, she is out of the Wild Mountain Black until mid summer. It’s a very limited production tea.

my fave are the Yunnan blacks.

I second that. I am particularly fond of Dian Hong – Golden Tip which is the tea that I probably hoard the most of. :)

I also noticed that Teavivre blend is on the top rated first page. I do have that in stock and vouch for it.
