I haven’t had a lot of experience with aged Oolongs but what I’ve tried, I’ve enjoyed and that’s what led me to want to try this one from Butiki.

My first cup was raw tasting … earthy. Notes of wood and chestnut along with a hint of buttery taste. The first cup was lighter in flavor than the subsequent cups.

My second cup was my favorite. It was delightful. The roasted chestnut flavor really emerged nicely here. A slight caramel-y undertone. Silky. Still a little earthy, but these flavors have subsided a bit to allow for the nutty, caramel-y, sweeter notes to come forward.

Subsequent cups became lighter but were still quite delicious. It’s definitely worth the effort to put this Oolong through its paces.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
