drank Eight Treasures Yabao by Verdant Tea
5357 tasting notes

Ok so first off…apparently i forgot how hot my tea traveller keeps hot water, so I kinda of burnt my mouth on this one. That being said, i do NOT like this tea. Rather than it being the jasmine that’s throwing me off, which I thought might happen – it’s the rose petals. They are coming on strong! I almost feel like this is a rose petal tea more than it is anything else.

I’m glad i got the chance to try this in sample size before it was discontinued. I feel like i might enjoy the winter 8 treasures yabao so I may give that a shot since it doesn’t have the rose petals.

I actually wish it tasted more like the initial scent of this tea. That smell was so promising when i opened up the package!

Yep heh could very well be that my sample wasn’t balanced enough and had too much rose….our not. But hey, that’s alright :)

Good thing you only got the sample, right? And my BF got a teavana tea tumbler and those things keep hot for HOURS – and I’ve burned my tongue once or twice ;)

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
