drank Anxi Tie Guan Yin by Butiki Teas
2815 tasting notes

It’s been raining today and I’m dragging around a bit in general, thought I would drink some of this lovely oolong.

Sometimes it’s difficult to believe a natural tea could have such wonderful aromas and flavors. With the first cup I was blown away by the scent of orchids. The flavor of the tea liquor is sweet, creamy and buttery and has an almost intoxicating appeal. This was definitely nice for an afternoon lift and practically transported me to a tropical garden. I got 3 steeps out of the leaves and was a very happy camper — LOVE it :)

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta
