84 Tasting Notes
This… is the… BEST… unflavoured… unsweetened… tea I have ever experienced.
That’s right… I did not just taste it… I EXPERIENCED it.
Have you ever spread fresh honey from the farmer’s market onto freshly baked, still warm, French bread?
You’re salivating right? Good. That is the aroma of this tea. The aroma matches the taste. It’s glorious.
This is the very first yellow tea I have ever had… and I do believe it may become my new obsession, if any others even slightly compare to this.
I saw that Rishi has one other yellow tea right now, called Yellow Sprout. It’s next up on my “to-do” list. As for the Yellow Buds… I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM.
Oooooooh! Update from the last time I had this! So… I got the POUND of Pu-erh Vanilla Mint that I ordered! Mwahaha, I was so excited!
So to celebrate, last night I did as Rishi recommends, and I brewed it like a chai. Half milk, half water, and 2 tablespoons of tea per 12 ounces. It was very good (when you smell it you’re going to think of Andes Mints or Girl Scout Thin Mints!) but I, personally, prefer it just brewed with water. It creates SUCH a dark brew, but it’s not bitter at all, and it’s just… awesome. It’s awesome. You should try it. It’s awesome.
Have a great day!
I like how it swells to like 500 times its original size after the first infusion. Hehehe… gets me every time. :)
I’m very picky about my black teas.
This is one of the best I’ve found!
Best grocery store chai I’ve found.
…but I’m not much for grocery store tea these days.
Very good, but I was surprised to see the leaves and twigs in such small pieces. It was more powdery than I expected.
Liked it lots, but I’ve had better.
I second Jennlea’s description of grassy and sweet.
Just the way I like it :)
No contest. My favourite oolong!!!!!!!!!!
I was so surprised by how much I loved this tea!!
Great for the white tea lover, who wants a slightly different take on the usual. So good!
