This is very much like Yamabudo, another oolong tea scented with grapes by Lupicia. The grapes used in Budou Oolong are apparently different (Pione grapes, they said), although I really can’t tell if it tastes different from other types of grapes. Anyway, people who enjoy Yamabudo will like this tea because it has all the former’s great qualities. While the grape flavour smells somewhat artificial, its taste, surprisingly enough, is subtle and natural. The bright floral fragrance of oolong tea base blends wonderfully with the grape flavour. A very gentle tea that makes a great start of the holiday :)

Profile

Bio

A devilish girl who lives up to the post-80s youth stereotype – hedonistic, frivolous and rebellious – except I love traditional afternoon tea rather than a quick caffeine fix at Starbucks.

I make a living off others’ criminal activities. It’s a busy job and I really wish I could retire, so I can become a full-time afternoon tea connoisseur instead. :j

I love any tea that has nice scent, great flavour and lovely packaging. My current top favourite brands are Mariage Freres, Kusmi Tea, Lupicia, T2, and THE O DOR. ;)
