drank Yunnan Golden Buds by Samovar
1112 tasting notes

My coworker asked if I could make some 175 degree water for her green tea in my kettle, so I thought I would make a tea which tastes great at that temperature too! Yunnan Golden Buds came immediately to mind. I have lost track of the number of infusions, but I’ve been drinking cup after cup since 9am (it’s now almost 1pm!) and the tea is still a sweet potato and brown sugar delight. Amazing.

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 2 min, 0 sec

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
