drank Yunnan Emerald Buds by Teavana
48 tasting notes

I love Yunnan tea. I mostly drink Yunnan black teas. So I was excited when I saw a green tea from the Yunnan province. At Teavana they always have me smell the tea before hand and show off the look of the tea. This Yunnan Emerald Buds looks just like the black tea except lighter. I couldn’t really tell what the tea smelt like at the store.
When I got home I opened it and took a long whiff of the tea. It also had an old floral aroma to it. It somewhat resembled a Dragonwell tea.
The tea tasted much like a low grade Dragonwell tea, yet it was much more delicate than a Dragonwell tea. I got four different steepings out of the tea. The last two were a bit bitter, which is weird since the water was cooler on the last two steepings than the first two. I wouldn’t buy this tea again. For the price there are much better teas. If you are at Teavana, instead of this tea go for a Japanese green tea.
