drank Golden Buds by Spire Tea
4826 tasting notes


Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea.

A really nice Golden Yunnan. Delicious, caramel-y yumminess!

I love that every leaf is fully golden … not just the tips. The full leaf is gold. Well, actually, these truly are BUDS … not so much leaves, but the leaf bud. And they aren’t just tipped in gold, but they are fully golden and bursting with flavor.

A rich and smooth tea. Very satisfying. One of those teas that I could drink everyday! Here’s my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/03/20/golden-buds-black-tea-from-spire-tea/

I am obsessed with tea!

I’m currently trying to take over 52Teas – please help make my dream a reality: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/497705217/the-great-52teas-take-over

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:


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.


I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes. I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. If you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.


Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
