drank Ancient Yellow Buds by Rishi Tea
123 tasting notes

This came in my monthly sweepstakes set and it doesn’t disappoint. I’ve tried a couple of yellow teas but this one has the subtlest and sweetest flavors. It reminds me of honeysuckle flowers but also has a wonderful apple flavor, almost like a honey crisp. It’s not overpowering at all and is a great substitute when you want green tea but aren’t in the mood for vegetables. There is a great thick brothiness to the tea as well and the leaves really hold up to multiple steepings. Other people mentioned it and it’s true, there is a wonderful breadiness to this tea, like soft french rolls with butter. This will have to be on the buy list.
