This is the first time this company’s on here, so I went with the Facebook marketing machines and decided to check this company out. They got a collection of most go to’s for Chinese, Indian, and Taiwaneese teas, and their oolong was dominated by gaoshan. The sampling was limited to three grams, with the lowest price being 99 cents, so hopefully, going through a small sampler will pan out and be its money worth.

It’s nearly been four years since I’ve had a Butterfly oolong, and this tea was a pretty good example that did not want to die. I thought that this tea was just another version of a Tieguanyin, but apparently, it’s a greener Wuyi oolong. Their notes are pretty spot on since orchid and a little bit of honey dominated the flavor and aroma in every cup, and it had a caramelized edge to it that you only get in some oolongs. They describe it being like toffee and hinted by peach, which I can see. I got eleven brews of it gong fu, but the flavor did not change that much. Orchid lead the rinse, and the toffee and peach became more prominent in brew 3 and 4. The later brews became a little bit too floral and grassy.

So, this is a good tea with a good mouthfeel. I would have gotten a lot more in the days before I was converted to Taiwaneese oolongs, but now, I am just satisfied that I tried it and will not get more. It’s also a little too pricey for me in my opinion.

I am an MSU graduate about to become a high school social studies and history teacher. I formerly minored in anthropology, and I love Egyptian and classical history. I love to read, write, draw, paint, sculpt, fence(with a sword), workout, relax, and drink a cuppa tea…or twenty.

I’ve been drinking green and black teas ever since I was little living in Hawaii with a dominant Eastern Asian influence. I’ve come a long way since I began on steepster and now drink most teas gong fu, especially oolong. Any tea that is naturally creamy, fruity, or sweet without a lot of added flavoring ranks as a must have for me. I also love black teas and dark oolongs with the elusive “cocoa” note. My favorites are lighter Earl Greys, some white teas like What-Cha’s Kenyan offerings, most Hong-Cha’s, darker Darjeelings, almost anything from Nepal, Green Shan Lin Xi’s, and Greener Dong Dings. I’m in the process of trying Alishan’s. I also tend to really enjoy Yunnan Black or Red teas and white teas. I’m pickier with other teas like chamomile, green teas, and Masalas among several.

I used to give ratings, but now I only rate teas that have a strong impression on me. If I really like it, I’ll write it down.

I’ll enjoy a tea almost no matter what, even if the purpose is more medicinal, for it is my truest vice and addiction.
