drank White Rhino by Butiki Teas
592 tasting notes

I hope that everyone has had a good start to the new year! My first tea of 2015 was actually some bagged genmaicha at a friend’s house, but for a bagged tea, it was pretty good. Anyway, my first loose leaf tea after I got back to my own place was this tea! I know I probably sound like a broken record, but I just can’t get over how malty it tastes for a white tea. I was also getting a lot of baked bread flavor today (moreso than usual, but who’s complaining?). I love love love this tea and probably will continue to until the very last leaf! I’m going to have to hunt for a replacement when I’m done because it’s all out now :( But I won’t have to worry about that for a while, phew!

I’m a California girl temporarily located in Boston for school (brrr). I only recently got into teas because I’ve never really liked coffee (too bitter), but I have been a daily barley tea drinker since I was little.

Through some timid tastings and exploring, I so far like:
-Japanese green teas (genmaicha, hojicha, sencha, etc)
-Oolongs! (Most kinds except formosa and dan cong so far)
-Straight black teas
-English Breakfast teas
-Fruity teas (peach, apple, strawberry, other berries)

NOT a huge fan of rooibos, matcha, heavily artificial tasting teas, or anything gingery or peppery, but I’m trying to keep an open mind and taste everything that I can!

I’m trying to sample more straight teas and have been having pretty awesome discoveries so far. Thank goodness for sample sizes!

My tentative rating system:
90-100: Woohoo! I’m loving it, and I’m definitely restocking when I get the chance and/or crying when I’m out.

80-90: Yum! I’ll try to restock if it fits in my budget when I run out.

70-80: Probably would not buy again, but it was nice enough to finish the cup.

50-70: Would not choose this tea for myself if given the situation, but would not reject it if someone offered it to me and would gulp down politely.

50 or less: Nope. Don’t care to taste that tea again, sorry!

I’m always down to swap, so send me a message if anything in my cupboard is calling your name!
