Mmm, this is nice! I got a sample of this with my last sample. I’ve been curious about this one as everyone here raves about it.

The leaves are super pretty and colorful. The liquor is a bright yellow; to be honest I expected it to be reddish from all the ingredients in here. The taste was quite unexpected; it tastes like bubblegum and roses! Haha. Very sweet and unique.

I couldn’t drink this everyday, but it is quite nice for now and then. I have a sample of the regular Silver Buds Yabao that I’ll try at some point today too.

The only debate is what to do with the remaining sample. Ice it, or another hot cup? Hmmm… :)

Iced might be nice. I wasn’t sure what to make of this one either. Heh. shrug

Chizakura

Yeah. I liked it, but nowhere near as much as everyone else. I see it more as a sweet drink rather than a cup of tea.

Fuzzy_Peachkin

Yeah, I didn’t like this one either: It tasted too much like potpourri.

Bio

Hello! I’m a 24 year old Canadian, currently working at Starbucks while I figure out what I want to do with myself in life, haha.

Like most everyone else, I grew up with teabags, and then discovered the grass really WAS greener on the other side with loose leaf. Nowadays I drink nearly exclusively loose, but will drink a bagged tea if I don’t care what I’m having.

My favorite kind of tea is black, and unflavored, although I do enjoy an occasional dessert black. I like whites second best. I’ve recently been dipping my toes into honeybush tisanes, greens and oolongs.

My favorite vendors are Butiki Teas and Verdant Teas. Both have fantastic teas, above and beyond customer service (especially Butiki), and fair prices for their very high quality teas. I can’t recommend them enough.

Purely for tasting notes references, I don’t use any additives for my teas. Older tasting notes for blacks was with milk+sugar, and then with just milk. Whites, oolongs, greens and herbals are all drunk straight unless otherwise specified in the notes.
