drank With Open Eyes by Butiki Teas
301 tasting notes

I am most definitely a black tea person – for me, nothing tastes better. If I could sit and drink black tea all day, I would be very happy. That said, I do have a real appreciation for all tea types (with a few notable exceptions – earl grey and jasmine to be specific). So I am really enjoying this tea today. It is a perfect afternoon sipping tea – creamy, buttery, fruity and good for resteeping. In addition I always enjoy the fun factor of watching the little Dragonwell Soldiers standing upright in the glass vessel.

I drink mostly puer and sometimes what we as Westerners think of as black tea.

I no longer assign numerical ratings to teas because our enjoyment of tea is very subjective. Reactions to a particular tea vary from person to person and within the same person across different tasting sessions.

My tea notes are simply comments reflecting my impression at that specific point in time. They are helpful to me and if they happen to be useful to someone else that is good.

For me, tea is magical with its ability to transform by bringing one back to center and inspiring both peace and contentment.
Reformed coffee drinker. Switched to tea as part of my goal to work on living a healthier, more balanced life — haven’t looked back since.
