drank South Korean Green by Butiki Teas
2816 tasting notes

This sample was provided by Butiki in my last order – thank you so much!

I brewed this according to the directions on the directions on the package – 3 minutes at around 180 F. I probably should have used a little less water for the sample…

I’ve never had a South Korean green but I like this one! It is a bit reminiscent of spinach but it’s also very sweet and light. Definitely has a smooth and creamy mouthfeel with perhaps a bit of spice on the backend? Might be a tad astringent for yours truly however. Definitely worth checking out.

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

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable
