drank Bouteaque Blue Mist by Eteaket
122 tasting notes

Bouteaque Blue Mist is one of the tea’s that Erika prides herself on discovering. Her staff will go on and on about how many awards it has won, and granted finding a Nilgiri tea un-scented now a days is rather unique. However that being said Nilgiri’s aren’t really known for their distinctive flavours, the opposite, they were predominately used for bases of flavoured and scented teas.

For being a black, the first time i had this tea I was severely disappointed in it. Lowering the temperature did significantly help this tea, and did help to bring out some subtle flavours that had otherwise gone un-noticed.

Is it worth the price? probably not. Is it worth a try, most likely in the sense to try a tea that often times gets over looked.

*edit I just made the perfect pot, Bouteaque Blue Mist, why must you be so temperamental. (but oh the roses and flowers that were the essence of the tea!)

blah blah blah, come on people, not every tea can be ranked 80+. Rant, rave; but honestly not every tea you drink can be ranked the same, otherwise you defeat the point of giving the grade!

So as other people have broken down their ranking systems, I am doing the same.

90-100 = I’m quite happy to buy again
70-89 = Acceptable representation
50-69 = Wouldn’t order again
20-49 = Meh
10-19 = Average tea bag ranking
0-9 = Needed to brush my teeth immediately
