So, since joining Steepster (and expanding my tea drinking habits), I’ve really started to dig Green(er) Oolongs. Verdant’s Tieguanyin was a revelation to me, when I first tried it, and all of the Butiki green oolongs I’ve tried have been delicious too – this one is no exception!

I know that it’s a little “darker” than the extremely green TGY that Verdant sell, for example, but it still has all of the wonderful qualities of greener oolongs that I’ve really grown to love. I brewed it in my little ~120 ml Gaiwan over the course of today – I must have gotten… Maybe ten steeps from it?

The first steep was pretty mild (and I confess – I did give it a flash rinse beforehand, too), but had those lovely, mild vegetal notes mixed with the floral, orchid flavour that I’ve really come to associate these teas with. The next handful of steeps were just perfect – floral and refreshing, with just a touch of buttery vegetables.

As the day wore on, my infusions grew longer – by the final steep or two, it was actually more akin to drinking a vegetal and orchid like White Tea. It was smooth, still kinda buttery and sweet.

This tea was just lovely. I’m deffo glad I took a gamble, with my first Butiki order, and went for a little bag of this – it’s well worth it! :D

This is nice. It’s still a pretty green oolong, but with a touch of roasty feel to it. Creamy. Tasty.

The leaves are beautiful as they unfurl.

Well, I was intending to have any more tea tonight, but then my mom demanded requested some, so of course I was willing to oblige. I brought out this green oolong from my Butiki order because it has been a while since I have had a greener oolong. I was absolutely in love with them for a while, but then something about my tastebuds suddenly changed and there was this new flavor in there that I didn’t enjoy so much.

Anyway, on to this oolong. As it was steeping, the leaves were unfurling so beautifully. They were seriously perhaps the most whole leaves I’ve seen for an oolong after they unfurled. The tea was sweet and smooth with a bit of vegetal notes as well. I still taste that weird dampness that I can taste in other green oolongs with my messed up tastebuds, but it wasn’t too strong in this cup. There didn’t seem to be anything earth shatteringly different about this green oolong, but I do appreciate it and loved just watching those full leaves unfurl in my clear teapot (aka one of the best teaware purchases I’ve ever made).

Stacy sent along a sample of this one for me to try :)

this is an oolong, which is not usually my faouvite, so bear that in mind. This particular oolong is halfway between a green oolong and what i call a roasty oolong. :) there’s a efeling of “green” to this one but it’s not over powering, while on the other hand there is also a more bread/nut like taste? it’s also got a bit of a juicy feel to it, though not like say a dragonwell :) Ont the whole, this was quite nice, though i’d rather see it in a blend than drink it all by itself :) Worth checking out for those of you that like oolongs!

This is a lovely sample that Stacy included in my most recent Butiki order. I sipped it whilst doing deskwork early today, but didn’t really take notes, so my review of it will be lame. It was a gentle cup, & all I recall is bready qualities, & an apricot aftertaste. I plan to resteep in a bit, maybe I’ll have something to add afterwards. Sample sipdown.
