drank Snow Buds (Xue Ya) by Rishi Tea
5 tasting notes

This is a beautiful tea. It has a creamy, buttery, faintly sweet quality that I love, and it has a richness to the color. The taste for this is what really stands out for me – some teas deliver on smell and fall short on taste, but this tea has a lot of complex flavors. I’m reminded of almonds, and, of course butter, with a bit of something sweet. When I was little my mother used to make me a snack of plain white bread with butter, sprinkled with sugar on the top, and this tea reminds me that taste, with the possible addition of the almond-esque essence.

And it’s amazingly inexpensive and – even better – I can buy this at the Whole Foods near me.
